As part of our topic, we went on a school trip to Beamish Museum. We had so much fun!
This term Year 1 have been learning about toys from the past. Our homework projects were truly amazing! Take a look...
We have been so excited about Halloween this week so we have been following instructions to make our own Halloween masks. Check out our scary faces... 
We have also written instructions to tell others how to make a scary mask of their own...
Yesterday, we had Lifeguards in school from the RNLI to teach us about Water Safety. We were all really interested and can tell you about the different flags and signs. Ask us about them...
This week, Year 1 performed a 'The Nutcracker' Class Assembly in front of all of their parents/ carers and grandparents! The whole school watched too. They did an absolutely amazing job and we were all very proud of them! Well done Year 1!
Some of us have been really busy in the sand area this week! We have been independently matching words to the pictures! :) 
We have been SO excited about our new reading area! We all brought a special book in from home and we have shared them with our friends throughout the week. It has been lovely to see all of Year 1 so excited to read!
We are really confident when using concrete resources in Year 1! 
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been practising really hard for their Christmas Production of 'Whoops-A-Daisy Angel'. Thank you to all of the parents who have already brought in a costume :) 
Year 1 were really excited to win the Attendance Award this week! We really enjoyed having an extra playtime on Friday afternoon!
We have been beyond excited this week! We loved all of the snow and we have been hanging our baubles on the school Christmas Tree!
We have been busy writing and sending out our invitations for Invitation Afternoon next week. We hope that you can all make it so that you can see all of the fantastic work that we have been doing this term!
We would like to thank all of our Parents/ Carers who came to Invitation Afternoon yesterday. We loved showing off our work and it was lovely to see that all of the adults were so proud of the children's progress. Well done Year 1!
Year 1 are very excited about Christmas Reading Day! We have all made an effort to dress up and we can't wait to open our special presents from Santa later on this afternoon! We are all little book worms...

Welcome back! I have now taken over Year 1 for Miss Harrison's maternity. It has been a delight working with Year 1 already and we are going to have lots of fun. 
We have started our new topic which is Traditional tales. A letter arrived from the secret pigs and we could not believe it! 
We have been looking at lots of different materials to see if things could be blown over like the wolf tested out. The children have made 'cement' out of playdough. The children loved getting their hands dirty with different materials.
In English we are focusing on the Three Little Pigs. We have been writing predictions on what we think is going to happen. In maths we have been looking at measurement. We have measured each other which was lots of fun. Some of us are a lot taller than others!
Our core value winner this week for being unique goes to Zac G.
Our head teacher award goes to Connor S for starting the new year with a  fantastic attitude to learning. 
Please remember PE is on a Friday. Bring kits in on a Monday and take home on a Friday. PE can sometimes change.
Friday 19th January 
This week we have had such a busy week! Our first full week back at school. We have been transforming our reading area into a fairytale setting we all feel as if we are 'In a land far far away' when we are in it.
This weeks core value is responsible and the child that has been nominated is Mia B.
The head teachers award this week goes to Sienna M for trying so hard in her work and producing an amazing story map about the Three Little Pigs, Well done Sienna!
Year 1 and reception won the attendance award this week and are very excited about getting extra playtime.
Our homework projects for our 'Traditional Tales' topic are well under way! Lexi made a fantastic chocolate cake with pigs sitting in the mud and everyone got to take a slice home.
In maths we have been measuring objects in cm using a ruler, we are super at estimating and measuring. In English we have been retelling the story of The Three Little Pigs the children know the story really well. In art we have been creating characters from Traditional Tales for our reading area.
