We are beginning our new year with a new topic:

Famous for More Than Five Minutes (Monarchs and Medics)

Please read our knowledge organiser for more information :) 


Marvellous Monarchs!

We have been learning more about Queen Elizabeth I in our topic lessons this week so we decided to create a timeline of British monarchs to see where she was compared to other Kings and Queens.


Christmas Craft Afternoon

We had a wonderful time with parents and carers at our Christmas crafts session. Thank you to everyone who could attend: we had so much fun!

Party time!

We had so much fun at our Christmas party! We danced, sang, played party games and had lots of yummy food too!

We even had a very special guest...can you guess who it was?

Year 1 had a fantastic time at Beamish Museum visiting Santa! We even got the opportunity to see Santa's reindeers and feed them! It was also a chance for us to recap our topic 'Changes' we covered in Autumn 1 term. We looked at how different it was in the past. 


This week we have had great fun recapping key concepts in our geography topic. To do this we used a fun interactive game on the ipads called Kahoot. In our co-operative learning groups we completed a quiz (the children chose their own team names!) 

We have been locating the countries in the UK in our topic lessons. Click here to play a fun game that locates the countries and capital cities in the UK! 

In our first lesson we looked at a map of the world and located where the UK is. Can you find where the UK is on the map?

Digimap for schools

In our topic lesson, we looked at sources from the past and made comparisons to today! We really enjoyed looking at how technology has developed and comparing TV's, mobile phones and alarm clocks. Did you know that in the past someone had to use a 'knocker' on the window to wake people up?! 

In our design technology lessons with Miss Walton we designed, created and evaluated our own  model cars. We had great fun and could not wait to take our models home! 

Arctic Rising Temperatures

Welcome to year 1! The children have settled in extremely well over the past two weeks and have enjoyed learning about the causes of the rising temperatures in the Arctic in our 'Go Green' fortnight. They completed some excellent projects over the summer holidays. Thank you!
