Class 1 enjoyed a fantastic afternoon at Framwellgate Moor School, taking part in different P.E activities. Each child took part in a carousel of 20 different mini sporting activities lead by Sports Leaders from the school; many of the leaders commenting, “These children are brilliant at following instructions”. Well done Class 1! 🙂
Well done to Lewis and Praim for earning a Sainsbury’s Games stickers. You both did an amazing job of dancing in sequences, both with partners and teams. Well done 🙂
Class 1 have had a fantastic two weeks looking at What Fairtrade is and how it helps people in may different countries. We linked it to UNCRC Articles 24 and 28. Our challenge is to now spot the logo on Fairtrade products when they are out and about at home with family!
Well done to Lucie and Ryan for earning a Sainsbury’s Games sticker for ‘Teamwork’. You both did an amazing job of leading your lines in the clown travelling and balancing dance!
World Book Day 2018
The children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters for world book day and taking part in activities that linked to non-fiction and fiction books. Our favourite was the one Sophia brought in about The Princess and the Pea because it rhymed! 🙂
Police Stations & People who help us
– Spring 2
This half term the children have decided that they would love to learn more about Police Stations and People who help us. This links closely to one of the suggestions from Green Team in the Pupil Improvement Plan regarding more opportunities to look at careers.
Well done to Marcus for earning a Sainsbury’s Games sticker for ‘Respect’. You always have respect for your opponent/s and set a good example for the EYFS children in your class. Well done to Amelia for earning a Sainsbury’s Games sticker for ‘Determination’ – You put 100% into your dance, ensuring you had 2 movements joined together for 8 beats!
Internet Safety Coffee Morning
The Blue Reef Aquarium
Today Class 1 had a fantastic day to celebrate the end of our topic ‘Under the Sea’. We visited the Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth and saw lots of wonderful sea life. We even had the opportunity to hold a Starfish and look at the different types of crabs and small sea life found in Rockpools. The seal show was amazing and we loved watching them wave and jump up to catch the ball! After lunch we visited the tropical fish and then had a walk over to the beach where we collected shells, rocks and pebbles to bring back to our malleable area 🙂
Well done to Charley for earning a Sainsbury’s Sports sticker for ‘Self Belief’. Just when she thought she couldn’t throw the beanbag with one hand and catch it with both hands, she tried again and managed to achieve! Well done to George for earning a Sainsbury’s Sports sticker for ‘Teamwork’ – You were super at the team game and deserved to be on the winning side with such a fantastic attitude.
The children in Class 1 took part in a Yoga session that Miss Grant had organised during Anti-Bullying Week. The children enjoyed learning this new sport and said they would love to see Vicky again soon! 🙂
Under the Sea Art
The children are very proud of their watercolour paintings that look very much like the ocean! They make very good marine biologists too! 🙂
Meeting our PCSO
We were so excited to see our new Police Community Support Officer in school yesterday and it was even more fantastic that he had enough time to talk to Miss Grant and the children in Class 1 about how to become a Policeman and Policewoman. The children were fascinated as many aspire to have a career in the Police force, PC Robson even showed us his police van and let the children have a look inside! I think it is fair to say the children can’t wait to see him again soon!
Open the Book Assembly
Class 1 enjoyed taking part in Reverend Caroline’s ‘Open the Book’ Assembly today looking at the story of God’s Friend Abraham. Well done to Sophia, Charlie.R and Olivia for you excellent acting skills 🙂
Miss Grant’s Birthday
On Monday we celebrated Miss Grant’s Birthday in Class 1, we counted up to to 25 in lots of different ways; by clapping, jumping, skipping and even star jumping! Thank you all for making my birthday extra special! 🙂
Class 1 had so much fun working with Amy and her friend from the Smoothie Bike Company. They worked with us to sort different foods into different groups and then let us think of ingredients that we would like in our own smoothie. During the session we had a go on the smoothie bike and used the pedals to blend the smoothie. At the end we all tasted the delicious mango and banana smoothie! MMMMMMMM 🙂
Fun & Fitness
This week we have been working with P.E coach Darren to complete different challenges, testing our skills in; balancing, movement, coordination, agility and speed; assessing how much progress we have made since our first session in September. Both Darren and Miss Grant were so proud of how much our skills had developed in such a short period of time! We really enjoyed the games we played and look forward to him coming back in the Summer term! 🙂

Forest Schools Stay ‘n’ Play
Thank you to everyone who took part in our sponsored walk to our Forest Schools site this afternoon! It was lovely to see so many of you taking part to help raise money for forest schools equipment.

Thank you for your support – Miss Grant 🙂

We can’t wait for next time! 🙂
