Year 1

Mrs Oram

Welcome to Year 1

 

Equal Groups

In Maths we have been learning  how to share out amounts into equal groups. We were doing really well until Mrs Oram gave us a problem where there was a bear left over. It took a lot of thinking to work out what to do with the spare bear, but Mrs Oram can't catch us...

Physical or Human Features

In Geography we have learned to identify physical or human features. It was quite tricky at first but now we can sort the cards according to what type of feature we can see. Some children even had a print out of a map of the United Kingdom and they used that to...

All About Animals

Our topic this term has been Animals and we have learned so much about them.  In Science we have learned about special body parts which certain animals have and why they have them. Elephants have trunks to suck up water and camels have humps on their backs to store...

Andy Goldsworthy Art

DT Challenge

As one of our challenges, we had to design the room of a house, then build it. We drew up a labelled plan, thinking about which items the room would need and which materials we might make these from.  We selected from and used a range of materials according to their...

Multi Skills Festival

Look at how much fun we had at Lord Lawson of Beamish Secondary Academy when we went to the multi skills festivals with lots of other year 1 classes from Birtley.  Some children won medals, which was very exciting but everyone tried really hard and fun which was most...

Clapping Patterns

In Music we had to listen carefully to the clapped pattern and then copy it. We also practised singing exercises by repeating silly phrases along with the singer on the whiteboard. Look at how focused everyone...
