In Class 2 we are busy trying to learn our times tables. One of the tools we use are the Percy Parker songs. We have started this week with the five times table. We will try to learn our times tables with 2, 5 and 10 first, followed by 3 and 4, then the remainder to 12 as the year progresses.
The children will need to keep themselves hydrated throughout the day. It is better for them to keep a water bottle in the class fridge with a drinking lid rather than going to our water fountain during lessons. Could you please encourage them to bring one in to school.
Eight children from class 2 and 3 including Year 2, ran the cross country race at Bilton Primary School. They were blessed with sunny weather and good conditions. Year 3/4 did two laps and Year 5/6 three laps. It was very pleasing to see all the children finish and give their maximum effort. There were some very good performances by Inidah 5th (Y5/6), Benjamin 9th (Y3/4) and Kacey 11th (Y3/4). All the children showed outstanding effort with no one giving up. Thank you to the parents for transport and thank you to those children who ran, very pleasing to see them race.
Would you please help by trying to get your children to return their homework set in class 2 by Wednesday. This is because we will be testing spellings and minute maths most Wednesdays, and it allows me time to mark the work, read comments and issue new homework by Thursday/Friday.
In addition, we require the children to bring their reading books back to school everyday, so that when there is an opportunity we can read with the children. Mrs Warrington has kindly volunteered to hear readers on a Wednesday morning. We will be beginning a new rewards system for those children who bring their book in everyday and can show they are reading regularly.
In class 2 we have been learning about plants. We have started an investigation into plants using cress seeds. We are learning about a fair test and investigating whether plants need light, water or soil to grow. This is the start of our investigation. Next week we will look at our results and record our observations.
Class 2 enjoyed their cricket session with Mr James Martin from Yorkshire cricket. The sessions have been coached very professionally and the children have learnt lots of new skills. Mr Martin is also running the cricket club. Hopefully these skills will come in useful at the small school sports event next week. Thank you to Mr Martin.
What a fantastic first 2 weeks back at school the children have had! They have done well settling back into school life and routines.
This term our theme is ‘Once upon a time’ and the children decided they’d like to start by focusing on pirates. We have had lots of fun so far taking part in role play on our new stage, making puppets, collaging pirates, singing pirate songs alongside lots of reading, writing and exploring our outdoor resources. We are looking forward to next week when we are going to dress up for ‘Talk like a Pirate day’ and year 1 go to Welton Waters to take part in lots of different activities.
We had a fantastic start to Environmental club on Thursday, after school. We finally got to sort out the bug hotel and began to give it a good revamp, hopefully we can keep adding bits to it over the next few weeks, we began to weed the play area and we also made a new hedgehog house that hopefully will get a few cute visitors soon! The children loved getting their hands dirty (literally) and helping us to improve our outdoor learning environment. Thank you to the children that came, can’t wait for next week already! 🙂
At Paull, we are always very fortunate to have outside agencies, coaches and teachers who come in to show our children brand new skills. This term we are lucky to have Mr Martin, who has come in to lead Class 2 and 3 in some cricket sessions, during P.E. The children really enjoyed their first lesson and here are just some pictures of Class 3 that show this!
Class 1 and Class 3 are joining forces to promote a love of reading. The older children really enjoy listening to the younger children read or letting them read to them. Class 3 set a brilliant example to the children in Class 1 and all the younger children children loved showing the older ones how well they can read!
We hope to keep this going and make it a regular occurrence!
Welcome back to all children and parents to a brand new school year!
Class 3 have had a brilliant first week and have already produced some excellent work, as well as made mine and Mrs Threlfall’s first week back at work, very rewarding.
This term our topic is Once Upon a Time and we hope to explore many different famous and classic stories over the various subjects. In English, we are heavily focusing on Harry Potter (a favourite of mine) and in our topic lessons we shall be focusing in detail upon WWII, as well as looking at famous stories such as ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’, ‘Carrie’s War’ and ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’. In reciprocal reading we will be looking at famous stories such as ‘The Railway Children’, ‘Jungle Book’, ‘Black Beauty’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and in R.E we are going to focus on creation stories of lots of different religions. I hope Year 5 and 6 all enjoy the work we have planned!!
Class 3 will also be trialing having their own Dojo pages and using our brand new iPads to share their work with you 🙂
Children have also been given the opportunity to take their homework into their own hands by creating their own Once Upon a Time project hat I hope they will all enjoy and really put their all into.
If you have any questions or queries, I will be available on Tuesday after school for a meet and greet the teacher but if you can’t make that, feel free to pop in at any other point or send me a message on dojo!
Thanks, Miss Nagy.

Welcome back to School for the new school year 2016 -2017. This term’s theme is ‘Once upon a time…’. Class 2 will be concentrating on looking at different authors and illustrators. We would encourage the children to read as much as they can at home and bring in their favourite books to share with the class. Any parents or carers who would like to read a story or share their favourite books are welcome to come into class 2. In science, we will be looking at plants and animals, and intend getting outside for some gardening before winter arrives. We are currently trialling a daily jog around the playground to get the pupils fitter and energised for lessons. All the pupils are keen to take part and hopefully the weather will continue to be kind to us. If you want to know more information on our class timetables or activities please come and see me next week for the ‘Meet the teacher’ meeting after school on Wednesday 14th September 2016.
