'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School

WELCOME TO YEAR 1 BUZZARDS

Buzzards are beautiful, graceful and strong birds of prey. They have to find their own food by hunting, so they constantly have to learn where food can be found and how they can get it. Buzzards learn every day in the same way we do.  Buzzards have fantastic looking and listening skills. These skills are as important to us in our learning as they are to Buzzards in their daily life.

Tuesday 17th September 2019 - Theme

In keeping with our theme 'The Same but Different', we have been looking at the world. We started by looking at the 7 continents that make up the world and then looked at where the different oceans are located. We worked together as a team on our tables to label the continents and oceans.
