They formed a ‘conscience alley’ and gave advice to Tiddler the fish who was alone and lost in the ocean.
The smallest fish can tell the tallest tales… “Sorry im late, Miss. I set off really early but on the way to school i was captured by a squid. i wriggled and I struggled until a turtle came and rescued me.”
“Oh no he didnt”
“OH YES HE DID!”
Tiddler is a little fish with a BIG imagination! whatever will he come up with next?
This term in year one the children will be using the story Tiddler by Julia Donaldson in literacy. The children will be writing diary entries, role playing and exploring the emotions of characters throughout the book.
Year One have been exploring life drawings, carefully looking at the flowers and drawing the fine detail they could see. They have also been exploring printing vegetables.
Year One have been learning Yoga in PE this term. They have been perfecting yoga poses and really enjoyed their Star Wars Yoga session.
Year 1 have been comparing capacity of water using direct comparison.The children filled containers and poured into individual measuring jugs. They then used the measuring jugs to order the containers from the least to most capacity.
The children were then challenged to draw their own containers with varying labelled capacities.
The children tried guava, passion fruit, mango, physalis, lychee, pineapple, orange, avocado and bananas.
Year 1 took part in a tennis festival at Boldon School. The children had the opportunity to improve their tennis skills whilst being coached by some of the school’s Year 8 pupils including some of our ex pupils. The children were all very well behaved, had a wonderful time and even received a medal for taking part.
Year 1 had a fantastic time at Monkton Stadium. Their morning started with being put through their paces by Mr. Taylor in the warm up. Then, we split into 4 groups and rotated around the different activities. The activities included long jump, hurdles, javelin and shot put. All of the children tried their best and, with each attempt of the activity, improved their performance from the last one. Before leaving, Year 1 also completed a 300 metre race around the running track! There was just enough time at the end of the morning to squeeze in an ice pop before leaving. All of Year 1 were a credit to our school. Their behaviour was impeccable, they put in 100% effort and most importantly, they had fun. Well done Year 1!
