D.T.: Windmills!

We have been learning about windmills and their structure. We researched and designed an effective structure. The children created sails that can capture the wind and spin.

International Women's Day: Amelia Earhart

As part of our topic Great Explorers, we have been learning about some fantastic adventurers who explored amazing places.

This week, to celebrate International Women's Day, we learned all about Amelia Earhart and what makes her not only a great explorer but a brilliant female role model.

We researched her life, mapped out her journeys, role played as a pilot and even created our own planes using junk modelling materials!


We discovered that a rocketship had crash landed into our school yard! Year 1 were the first on the scene and quickly looked for clues. There were yellow footprints, moon rocks and alien slime!

The children soon found a storybook that showed us the alien who had crashed was Beegu!

Wild at West Boldon Lodge!


As part of our class story this term, Wild, we visited a forest to explore life as the wild girl. We have had a superb day exploring the wilderness, making art using nature and even enjoyed some campfire treats!


The children were brilliant at making dens and bird feeders, as well as taking part in some bird watching. We were so proud of their super listening and teamwork. They learned lots about the story setting and will be using their experiences to create some descriptive writing in class this week πŸπŸŒΌπŸŒ³



This term, our R.E. question is: Was it always easy for Jesus to show friendship?


To begin this topic, we read 'Say Hello' by Jack Foreman and discussed how we show kindness and friendship to the people around us. We acted out parts of the story and using freeze frames to talk about how the characters were feeling and what we could do to show friendship.

We spent the afternoon, showing friendship to our classmates. We made friendship bracelets, took part in team painting and building challenges, made friendship cards and working together. We learned how to be good friends and how to show friendship like Jesus did.

Say Hello

Rock Pooling!

As part of our English lessons we have been reading The Rainbow Fish.

We visited the beach to look at the setting of the story and got to explore the rock pools and everything they had to offer.

We discovered crabs, fish, shrimps and even starfish!

NUSTEM Workshop


We took part in a STEM workshop where we learned all about being naval architects! We learned about boats, made predictions and discussed the best shape for a boat. We used trial and improvement to create boats that floated using different materials.


We invited our parents in to show them what we had learned and to complete some more exciting tasks!

Settling in to the new year!

We have enjoyed our first days in Year 1!


We have explored the areas, worked creatively and had lots of fun!


Geography Fieldwork and Beach Trip

We had a brilliant day today at the beach! We completed our geography fieldwork where we collected traffic data.

We spent the rest of the day at the beach playing, building and exploring. It was so much fun and we were all very tired by the end of our fantastic day!
