Year One visited the Methodist church with Reverend Jane to find out what kinds of things we would find inside. We sat in the pews while Reverend Jane talked to us. She showed us lots of different features like the beautiful stained glass window, the font where babies are baptised and the communion table where they have the bread and wine on a Sunday. We asked lots of really fantastic questions and at the end we sang a hymn together. We learned a lot from our visit and can’t wait for the Reverend Jane to come into school and share some stories with us all.
Year 1 had a fantastic time at the Marine Park completing an orienteering course. They took turns to use the map and navigate to each checkpoint. They collected resources on the way and used these to build a hedgehog house. We all had a brilliant day!
Ok This week year 1 took part in “80s week” with Little Movers and of course that meant they all donned the signature neon accessories. The children were “walking on sunshine” while they danced and took part in lots of exciting races and competitions. At the end of the session, the dancer of the week trophy went to Joshua for his amazing moves! Well done, Joshua!
When Year 1 arrived at school on the 1st December, there was a surprise waiting under the Christmas tree with a letter from the Christmas elf. He has left a special delivery of books for the children to enjoy reading throughout December. They loved the first story ‘Santa is coming to South Shields’ and can’t wait to find out what tomorrow’s story will be.
Year 1 had lots of fun at their cricket festival. They practised lots of bat and ball skills and had a mini game of cricket. We definitely have some future stars!
