Have a look at what we’ve been learning…
Key Stage 1 made the most of the last day of term on Thursday by having lots of spooky fun. All dressed up in their best costumes they spent the morning doing spooky quizzes, making bat biscuits and solving Halloween puzzles. Then, on the afternoon, it was great to be able to party the afternoon away playing all their favourite party games and having a good dance.
Year 1 had a lovely time on their autumn walk this week. They found lots of colourful leaves, berries and conkers. It was great fun squelching through the muddy puddles.
Weardale Outdoor Adventure Centre
The Year 1 children had an amazing time during their visit to Weardale House Outdoor Adventure Centre. They completed a scavenger hunt, did some nature art, built bug hotels, tackled obstacle courses and whizzed down zip lines. They ended the day by sitting round a camp fire singing songs and drinking hot chocolate. Here are some photos to show all the fun they had.
Year 1 have been learning to use the words “is more than” and “is less than” to compare two amounts. They chose 2 numbers and used the plastic bricks to build towers for each amount. Then they chose the correct phrase to compare the two amounts. Well done Year 1, you enjoyed doing your maths work outdoors
I wish I had a monster
The Year 1 children have been very busy in their English lessons over the last two weeks. We read a story called ‘I wish I had a monster’ and we talked a lot about the describing words the author had used.
The children then painted their own monsters and wrote some fantastic sentences to describe them. Next they used green screen technology to perform some of their sentences in front of an image of their monster.
Well done Year 1. You used some fantastic describing words and had lots of great ideas. You can watch our videos here.
