Mr Steadman and Miss Smith have been training up our new Sports Leaders.
They will be teaching our younger children some new games, and joining in with their games too.
Some Year 1 children were on hand to help give them some practise in using their leadership skills.
Y1L loved their visit to West Boldon Lodge, First we went on a mini beast hunt in the fairy garden before going pond dipping. After lunch, we explored ‘Hollywood’ and enjoyed den building and helped Victoria build a campfire. The toasted Marshmallows were delicious!
Miss Cook came back to visit us in Year 1 after her month long visit to Kenya. She had been a volunteer teacher at a school there and wanted to share details of her fantastic experience with us. She saw zebras, elephants, giraffes, lions and hippos while on a safari there. At break times, the pupils ate cooked sweet potato or corn on the cob. Miss Cook brought a Kenyan worry doll and a Masai warrior robe to show us. Lots of our pupils seem keen on going on travel adventures just like Miss Cook.
What a fun trip we have had to West Boldon Lodge. We have loved all of the activities, including pond dipping, mini beast hunt, den building and having a sing along and marshmallows by a campfire. We also couldn’t have a trip without a little ‘Harton Factor’ with Mrs Lamb!
Year 1 made a reproduction cup and ball game, and a flip toy. Everyone had fun making them and trying them out.
In preparation for the Summer Fayre, Year 1 pupils made wildflower seed bombs to sell on the Eco-warrior stall.
all. The bees and butterflies will enjoy the flowers when they bloom.
Thank you to everyone who bought Year 1’s wildflower seed bombs and bug hotels at our 2018 Summer Fayre. Hopefully it will have a positive impact on the bee, butterfly and bug community, and the flowers should look gorgeous too!
Y1L and Y1H loved learning about the history of toys with Richard.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported their child with their phonics. All of the children have worked very hard and achieved so much. We are very proud.
We are not able to tell you your child’s overall score at this time but a letter will be sent in the coming weeks.
Well done to our Year 1 superheroes!
