Welcome to Class 1
We can't wait to meet you all and begin our exciting journey together. We are excited to welcome back our existing families and of course welcome the many new families joining us this year!
We have lots of interesting topics planned this year and know that we will all be working hard together, so that we have a very productive first year in school. So, let's start this new adventure together and shine bright!
Class 1 Staff
Mrs Holmes, Miss Forster and Mrs Hawkins
Spring Term 2021
The children in Class 1 enjoyed taking part in a Lingotots session as part of Durham County Council's Languages Festival. It was exciting to listen to and learn how to say some phrases in French, and they all joined in enthusiastically with the follow-up games.
Autumn Term 2020
This Term our topic is called Me, My Home and My Family. Throughout this topic we will be linking our experiences to the stories written by the well known author - Julia Donaldson.
In R.E. this term, the children in Reception are thinking about God's wonderful world and how we can look after it so that it stays beautiful.
We have talked about the rubbish that is spoiling our world and making animals and sea creatures poorly.
The children wanted to do something to help!
We went for a walk around the school grounds to see what we could do to look after our environment. The children found some things that needed picking up, including rubbish, toys, balls and leaves.
Mrs Hawkins put on a pair of gloves and collected all of the rubbish in a black sack.
We all agreed our school environment looked much better when we had finished.
Well done to the Reception children for helping with such a worthwhile job 😊
In R.E. we have been thinking about how we can look after God's wonderful world.
We decided that we can help to look after bees and other insects by growing more flowers.
Each child planted a daffodil bulb in a pot and watered it to help it to grow.
We put them all in the greenhouse over the winter so that we can check on them regularly. We are really looking forward to seeing them grow!
