Bog Baby!

The children have had so much fun thinking back to our trip last week and recreated Bog Baby using playdough and natural resources.

Hardwick Park Visit

This week Class 1 went on a trip to Hardwick Park. They had an amazing time! In the morning they listened to a story all about Bog Baby then got to go pond dipping to see if they could find a bog baby. They didn’t find one but found so many other pond creatures! After that they went on a hunt to find bog baby, following his blue ‘sneezes’. When they finally found bog baby they got to make their very own using clay and natural objects, they were brilliant!

In the afternoon they went on a sensory trail and drew the things they could see, hear, smell and feel. Then they went on a walk, collecting natural resources to make their own collage. Finally they used paper, string and ribbons to decorate a tree. A wonderful day!


The children have had lots of fun reading the story of Rapunzel this week and have written some brilliant descriptions of her in Literacy, read words from the stories and drew pictures to match and have even cut her spaghetti hair in our finger gym!


Ocean in a Bottle

We have made our very own ocean in a bottle this week and they look amazing! It looks like waves rolling across the sea when you tip the bottle from side to side.


Ship Ahoy!

Class 1 have had lots of fun in their new role play area. Dressing as pirates and hunting for treasure.

Marvellous Measuring

In Class 1 this week we have been learning all about measuring. We received a letter from the giants asking us to measure their footprints. we found out which one was the longest and then worked out which would be the tallest giant. We’ve also explored tape measures in pairs measuring lots of items around our classroom.


Fabulous Frogs

The children have enjoyed learning all about the life cycle of a frog. They have sequenced each step and described what happens in each. They have also been making their own frogs.

World Book Day

The children had an amazing time for world book day dressed as Kings and Queens. They even got to meet the captain of South Shields FC who came in to read stories to them.

Multi-Sports Festival

Class 1 had so much fun this week at Temple Park where they took part in a Multi-Sports festival. They completed activities from lots of different sports such as football, tennis, rugby, basketball, netball and athletics. They worked so hard on each activity.


The Mysterious Box

In Class 1 this week a mysterious box appeared in our class covered in warning labels and a list of care needs. We investigated what we thought might be inside. The children created warning posters based on their idea. Near the end of the week we came into the classroom to find the box was torn open and no creature was in sight. After a hunt around the classroom we found what it was… A dinosaur!!
