We have been learning about the River Tyne. We have drawn maps, identified settlements along the river and looked at the uses of the river. We have published our work in the form of a double page spread.
Children’s Mental Health Week
It is so important to look after our own mental health. This week, we have completed a Mood Booster and learnt a line dance, meditated and had a go at some yoga. This all helped us feel happy on the inside!
Today we had a visit from Miss Bell who told us all about birds. We became bird experts, identifying their features, colours and their song. We even got the chance to use binoculars to help spot any birds in the school field.

This week we started our unit of gymnastics in our PE sessions. We learnt how to make symmetrical balances. Some were with partners and some were different levels. When we work we try to be excellent gymnasts and show control and extension.
We have been learning all about plants. We know that plants need certain things to survive and thrive and we also found out that plants are called producers because they make their own food. We investigated what would happen if we put a Basil plant on the window sill,…
