The Autumn is a stunning time of year to go for a walk. With changing leaves falling to the ground, crunchy walkways, misty, red, golden and glowing skies, conkers waiting to burst open ready to be discovered by little hands, squirrels scurrying around preparing for the winter ahead and a whole palette of colours spreading across the landscape… it’s a real feast for the senses. Walking encourages development of gross motor skills and helps maintain good muscle strength. It gets the body moving and helps children to stay healthy, even if it doesn’t feel like exercise to them.
So on Tuesday afternoon KS1 went out on an autumn walk. They went out looking for acorns, conkers and other items linked to autumn. They had a wonderful time.
KS1 Athletics Festival
10 children from KS1 went to Gateshead Leisure Centre for an athletics festival. They enjoyed participating in all of the fun activities around the sports hall. They did running, jumping and throwing. They had a great time.
Plants Around School
We have been learning about plants in Year 2. During our science lessons we have been looking at how plants grow. We ventured around the school grounds to see all of our beautiful plants.
