Jade - KS1

Welcome to KS1 - Jade Class!
Your Class Teacher is: Mrs. Steel

A huge big thank you to all.


Thank you so much for the thoughtful and generous gifts you gave me. I loved the poem, which left me tearful. I hope you all have a fabulous summer holiday. See you in September. 


Jade Class invited their parents into school to share an afternoon of scientific activities. A huge thank you to all the parents who attended. The children conducted experiments finding out which magnet was the strongest, they made carbon dioxide gas to blow up balloons using vinegar and baking soda. They investigated which material made the best parachute and they investigated the effect of adding tape to a balloon, and the time it took to burst when piercing with a needle. Great fun was had by children and parents.
This half term's topic is 'Toys Past and Present.' The children may ask you if you have any old toys that they can show and tell. Alternatively, if parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles would like to bring an old toy in and talk to us in Jade Class that would be wonderful. We have started to create a class museum of old toys.  

I hope everyone has had a relaxing holiday and ready to return for a very busy term. Please label all school uniform and PE kit, including footwear. PE kits should come into school on a Monday and be taken home on a Friday to be washed. This half term, NUFC coaches will be teaching fundamental movements on a Wednesday and a specialist yoga coach will be teaching yoga on a Friday. Water bottles should be filled at home and brought in daily.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me either by email through the office, on the yard in the morning or after school.  


20.09.19 Yoga

NUFC PE 18.09.19 The children played a variety of tag games to improve their balance, coordination, movement and awareness of space.

Outdoor Learning - 12.09.19 Looking for signs of autumn. We found seeds from the oak and horse chestnut trees, and leaves turning yellow, orange and brown.

10.09.19 PSHE - Together we read 'The huge bag of worries' and we talked about our own worries. These were then put in our worry box to be taken away.


03.07.19 NUFC PE

As part of Sports Week, we had a lego building competition. The children were challenged to build the highest tower in one minute. The children took it in turns to time one minute using stop watches, whilst others built their towers. The children recorded the number of bricks they used in a bar chart. Our winners met Purple Class winners in the final challenge.
The top four children in Jade and Purple met in the hall for their final challenge. Building the tallest tower with 24 bricks was shared equally between both the classes. A great result!

Inter-class Challenge

Please remember to have PE kit in school all week. We have started this term with an action packed PE curriculum. NUFC coaches come in on a Wednesday to teach throwing and catching skills and this half term, we can choose to take part in NUFC's lunchtime club too. There will be two sessions of PE each Friday -  a cricket session and a separate session with Miss Alderslade.  Your child has taken part in a Kidditch session which was great fun. Later in May, Year 1 children will be involved in a Hoopstarz festival at Chantry.

SCIENCE WEEK 11.03.19 - 15.03.19

Poisons by Dr Holmes


Jade class have been rising to the challenges set by Newcastle United football coaches. This week, the children worked in teams to achieve as many 'four in a row' as possible, scoring points for each one that they made. They could place their marker in any grid to block a formation or they could steal a marker instead of placing one. This was great fun! 

WORLD BOOK DAY 7th March 2019

Jade Class had lots of fun dressed as their favourite book character. We read the story 'I'll Take You To Mrs Cole' and drew pictures to show what we thought Mrs Cole would be like. We used conscience alley to give advice to two different characters allowing the children to express reasons for an action. Finally, we learnt about odd and even numbers. We created Mrs Cole's street with houses, giving each house a specific number to sequence into odd and even numbers.  

PE - Problem Solving_

The children worked in small groups using two mats to travel the length of the hall to collect a football and return to their starting point. The challenge was to keep their feet on the mat and not on the floor. 


This half term's theme is Africa. This week, we have read and sequenced the story of 'Bringing The Rain To Kapiti Plain' and  we have written some sentences using the story language and repeated phrases in the book. In maths, we have been using our knowledge of number facts to find missing numbers in a number sentence. In science, we have been learning about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.  


Happy New Year!

Week beginning 11.02.19
The children will be painting their comic page this week. They will use bright, bold colours in the style of a comic. They will add their superhero that they created together with speech and thought bubbles, and a sound effect. They're looking great! In science, they will be comparing the life cycle of a fish to the life cycle of a frog. In English, they will continue to  read and engage with some traditional tales. This week the traditional tale is 'The House that Jack Built.'
Week beginning 04.02.19

Safer Internet Day 05.02.19

We had great fun making bird feeders but got a little messy.
Week beginning 28.01.19
In science, this week Jade class have been learning about the differences and similarities between birds and reptiles. In computing, we are learning how to use a keyboard, typing letters with two hands, using the shift key for capital letters and the space bar to create spaces between words. In maths lessons, we are learning about place value and recognising the value of the digits in the tens and units column. Bossy verbs and time connectives are the focus in English lessons, when writing instructions for 'How to brush your teeth'.            PE lessons, involve children creating animal movements whilst dancing to 'The Parrot Tico Tango'. Hopefully, there will be some videos of the children dancing, posted shortly.

To end the term, Key Stage 1 visited Woodhorn Colliery. We had great fun ice skating followed by a hot chocolate. We also made Black Diamond Lanterns, which we used in worship whilst singing 'Away in a Manger'. Thank you to all the parent helpers who came along to support.

Welcome back to Autumn 2. I hope everyone had a relaxing holiday.

Rocket Fund

Through the organisation Rocket Fund, we are trying to raise money to buy exciting and innovative IT equipment for our school. As ICT coordinator, I want to provide children with technology that is fun, interactive and different to iPads and computers, which most children have access to either through school or home. Any support or publicity is greatly appreciated, this can be done via word of mouth or any social media outlets.

Please have a look at our Rocket Fund page below.
