Class 1Miss Kyle
Welcome to our class page!
There are 23 children in our class and our teacher is Miss Kyle. We are even lucky to have support from Mrs Clough during some afternoons.
In the Summer term, we are going to be learning about life ‘Under the sea’ and we are going to be exploring different aspects of the ‘Seaside.’ Currently, we love reading under the sea adventure stories and we will be learning new and unusual facts about sea creatures! We already know lots about Sharks!
Our aim is to keep you update with all of our learning experiences throughout the year to come. Please keep visiting our amazing class page to keep up to date with Class 1’s journey throughout Year 1!
Oh we do like to be beside the seaside! Class 1 have been using their observational skills to draw seaside objects. They carefully looked closely at the line, texture and shape of each object. They even began to practise shading and experimenting with dark and light tones.
After learning lots about trees, flowers and plants, Class 1 got to work and planted their own beans! Through careful planning of what was needed and by following step by step instructions the children soon had their own bean plant of their own. We will closely watch them over the next few weeks!
This week, we have been learning about lighthouses. We identified where lighthouses can be found in different seaside resorts. We also discovered the different sections within a lighthouse and what makes them so important. We looked closely at the patterns and colours used from photographs and pictures to create our own drawings. Take a look at our fabulous creations!
This week 12 children from Reception and KS1 were very fortunate to explore visit Oakfield Infant school, in Gateshead, and experience some activities in their amazing forest school. We toasted marshmallows around a camp fire, built new homes for the forest fairies,...
This week, we have been reading the Lighthouse Keeper’s lunch story. Poor Mr Grinling- those seagulls keep eating his lunch! We decided to help Mrs Grinling and invent our own clever plan. To see what all the fuss was about, we had a taste challenge and some children were brave enough to try different ingredients. We then came up with our own sandwich to scare away those pesky seagulls! Would you try mustard or marmite?
We love practising our fine motor skills to help improve our letter formation. We showed super concentration skills when threading the flowers this week. Take a look at our great activities.
Class 1 made their own Sunflowers this week in Science. They thought carefully about where to place their leaves on the stem and they labelled their plants using the correct vocabulary. We then discussed the importance of each function and how plants grow and stay alive. Next week, we will write our instructions to tell others how we made them.
We had lots of fun this week exploring the World map and discovering the globe. We looked at all seven continents and learnt new facts about different countries around the world. Can you name all of the seven continents and five oceans?
Class 1 had their very first dance lesson this week with Alex. They thoroughly enjoyed learning some new moves and began to sequence some of their moves into a short dance routine. Look at how great we look!
All of KS1 had a visit from Alison this week who was from the Dogs Trust. We learnt some super tips and advice on keeping safe around dogs when out and about.
Alison from the Dogs Trust visited classes 1,2 and 3 and we took part in a workshop to make us aware of how to keep safe around...
We had some ‘egg-cellent’ entries for our Easter egg competition this year. Here are our proud winners with their designs. Well done to everyone who joined in the fun!
