Summer Term 2019

We can't believe it is the summer term already! We have lots of interesting things planned and we are looking forward to another exciting and busy term.
This term our Theme topic is 'Dinosaurs'. We will investigate how big dinosaurs were and find out what they liked to eat. Our Science topic is 'Plants'. We will be learning to identify and describe a variety of plants, including trees. We will go on a plant hunt and even grow some plants ourselves!
In English this term we will explore a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts and poems. We will continue to practice using capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks in our writing. In Maths we will be learning about fractions (half and a quarter) as well as multiplication and division. 
Rising Sun Country Park
Year 1 had a fantastic time on their trip to the Rising Sun Country Park as part of our science curriculum. We took part in a leaf hunt, created flower models from natural objects found in the woods and also took part in a blindfold challenge to identify different trees. We enjoyed our lunch and even had time to play in the park. 
DT Week
Year 1 have had a fantastic week designing, making and evaluating their very own dinosaur models! They have used a variety of skills including drawing, cutting and constructing. We are so proud of how hard the children have worked and the amazing and creative results! Thank you to all of our parents that were able to help the children finish their products!
Half Term Homework
Year 1 have worked really hard on their half term homework making a model of a dinosaur home! We are very impressed with all of them!
Dippy the Dinosaur
Year 1 have had a fantastic day at the Great North Museum visiting Dippy the Dinosaur. We took part in lots of different activities including: Dinosaur Explorer Bags, Fossils Workshop, Dippy the Dinosaur Exhibition and also a whole museum exploration.
