Year 1/2

This week the children have had a busy week! They have completed their Geography Topic and have found out about the four countries which make up the UK and each countries capital city. The children are really excited to be learning about our History topic of the Great Fire of London.  We are even learning a song about it with actions.  In PE many of the children have been practicing outside of school and are becoming great gymnasts being able to successfully use their bodies to safely do a bridge pose.

We have discussed bullying in all its forms during anti bullying week and have ended the week on a high celebrating Children in Need.

Shine like a Star

To link with anti-bullying week, this week’s Shine like a Star has been to smile and ask somebody how they are feeling.

We would like to support the Teesside at Christmas Appeal who are looking to give filled shoe boxes of gifts and essentials to those who would go without at Christmas. Please use the link below or look at the posters below to find details of what is recommended to go in the shoe boxes.  If anyone would like to donate a filled shoe box or to send items in that we can make boxes up in school, then please do so by Monday 29th November, so we can give them to this small, local charity.
