KS1 Weekly News – 15.09.23

Our topic this half term is: There’s no place like home. We are looking forward to learning more about Middlesbrough and the United Kingdom. Today (Friday) we were privileged to meet the Chris Cook, the Mayor of Middlesbrough. He came in to tell us about his job and what he likes best about Middlesbrough, which included parmos and the Newport bridge! Over the next few weeks we have some inspiring activities planned for our children and we hope they enjoy their learning!

IHL – This week the children in 1HL have been busy learning about verbs, counting carefully and practising number formation in Maths and finding out about the artist Mackenzie Thorpe. We really enjoyed Mighty Warriors in PE this week practising our yoga positions and listening to the story Peace at Last by Jill Murphy.

1TS – 1TS have been busy in Geography this week looking at physical and man-made features of our school environment. They have been learning about verbs too, and trying their best to follow instructions in Mighty Warriors. What a busy week in 1TS.

1MG – The children in 1MG the Year 2s have been extremely busy. In English, they have been working on adjectives and writing questions. In Maths, they have consolidated their knowledge of numbers up to 100 and writing numbers as words. They have also talked about man-made and physical features in Geography and seasons in Science.

The artist we are finding out about in Key Stage 1 this half term is Middlesbrough born artist Mackenzie Thorpe. Have you seen any of his artwork?
