More Class 2 play photographs and a review.

Today Class 2 did a fantastic play based on WW2. I really enjoyed it. It was that good that some of the children’s parents started crying! They put a lot of effort in.They all knew there lines and said them loud and clear. They all sang fantastic and remember all there lines and songs.  They all had big smiles and they were all so confident.

Thanks to:

Miss Swatman, Mrs Threlfall and Miss Thompson for organising it.

Forest Schools

In today’s Forest Schools session we began by looking at animal habitats. We brain stormed animal  habitats. From our ideas we decided to further explore nests. We found out by research on the I pads that it is not just birds that live in nests but in fact lots of other animals. We found out what materials can be used to build a nest and what techniques. We all went outside to gather natural materials of our own to build a nest. We made a giant birds nest and Scarlett and Lola were our class chicks who tried out the nest.

Art & Maths in Class 1

Today the children have been making artwork link to peace symbols.  Maths learning for Year 2 has been the measurement of mass (weight) and using scales (balances) to measure it in grams.  Year 1 have continued their learning and understanding of number to 40.  A very productive day.

Class 1 Poetry

Next week class 1 will be writing poems based on the poem ‘My Favourite Thing’ by Lynn Redgrave.  They can bring in a soft toy on Monday to base their poem on.  We will be writing the poems throughout the week about these toys.  They should only need them for Monday as we will take photographs to stick in our books.  Any questions please ask Mr Watson or Class 1 staff.

Get Glowing with Class Two.

This morning Class 2 had a very exciting morning at Aldborough Sports hall, working with 5 other schools on different ‘glowing’ games. The event was a little bit lighter than we expected but we all still had a fantastic time. There were some very exciting and imaginative outfits that caught the eyes of numerous staff, well done class two!  

Science in Class 1

Class 1 have been investigating the absence of light when observing objects.  They did an investigation using a shoe box as a dark room and placed objects inside.  They had to guess what the object was without light and then shine a torch on the object to see the difference.  Key Stage 1 children recorded their investigation and observations. FS just had to guess and will have a further opportunity during the week to use the shoe boxes and torches.  A super activity enjoyed by the children.

DT in Class 3

Class 3 have started making their World War II vehicles.

The first part of the project was to make a sturdy frame.

The children used tools to measure and cut the wood before sticking it together with ‘jinx’ corners to make a jinx frame.

Next steps are to attach the axles and wheels to the frame.

With the frames complete and the children waiting for the glue to dry, the class investigated different axles they could use on their vehicles.

The children used a variety of equipment and tools for the investigation.

Some ideas worked better than others and the class were able to see and point out why different ideas worked better.

Well done to Class 3 for finding different solutions to having wheels that turn with an axle and a frame.

Our next steps are to attach the motors to the axles for the wheels to be powered by batteries.

Golden time in Class 3

Class 3 enjoyed making squishies from flour and balloons during their Golden time 🙂

Forest Schools

This afternoon all the children have taken part in a Forest Schools session. We made a fire in the fire pit. All the children were told about fire safety. The children were taught about the fire square and what 4 things we need to have a fire. Heat, oxygen, fuel and water. Then each child had the chance to roast a marshmallow over the fire pit. The children really enjoyed Forest Schools today.

   

Art Club.

This week was the first Art Club for Class 1, we created our own scratch artwork with some lovely results.

We started by colouring in the paper, making it as bright and colourful as we could using oil pastels, we then covered the paper with black paint and scratched our pictures into this.

Class 1

Today the children have been writing character descriptions and coming up with the descriptive words to make them interesting.  In maths Year 1 and FS have been making rulers to measure objects.  The children have been working hard and producing some good work.

Ruby Club

Rugby club has started on Tuesday evenings.  Please support these sports clubs by encouraging you children to join.  They are free, open to all children from Year 1 to 5, coach by qualified sports coaches and really enjoyable.  The first session went well and I’ve had some positive reviews by the children.  There are still five weeks for pupils to attend.

 

Maths with Year 1 and FS2

Reception and year one went outside to explore the different ways we can measure objects. We used our hands and feet to measure things in the playground and recorded our results on whiteboards.  It was a great activity to do outside in the sunshine!

Fractions in Class 2

Today we introduced the class to fractions, using smarties we looked at the part- whole model.

We learned that the denominator is the bottom number and represent the total, and the numerator is the top number and relates to the fraction in question.

We were then able to eat the smarties and compare how our fraction had now changed, this was lots of fun!

Class 1 Star Awards

There were star awards for Ellis and Summer for super efforts in literacy.  Well done to both and keep up the hard work.

EYFS

The children in the Early Years have shown an interest in the police force. We have made a police station/prison cell in class 1. Yesterday the children were lucky enough to look around a replica prison cell, brought in to school by Prison Me No Way. All the children agreed that they much preferred being police officers rather than prisoners.

Star Awards in Class 1

Star Awards in Class 1 have gone to some good spellers and for super behaviour and effort.  These are Oliver, Sidney, Kaleesi, Halle, Ruby-Jo, Jorgie and Zak.  Super effort from Class 1 and especially from these pupils for top marks.

Cricket festival with year 3.

Yesterday, Year 3 took part in a cricket festival at Holderness Academy, run by All Stars. There were a number of stations with different activities on each, working with 3 other school. The children had a fantastic time and worked well in teams getting to know other children.

Class 1 at work

Class 1 have had yet another busy day.  The whole class have been measuring length.  Foundation Stage (FS) were looking at their heights and comparing different lengths, then shorting them into sizes.  Year 1 were measuring objects using bricks and Year 2 were measuring in centimetres using rulers.  FS had a play and stay, with a couple of parents able to join in the creative activities.  Key Stage 1 did a science investigation into different materials that reduced the volume of sounds.  Finally, the children had their evacuee pictures taken with their name tag, suitcase and gas mask box.  A very busy but enjoyable day!

World War 2

Mrs Collier and Mr McLoughlin came into school to share their knowledge and artefacts  of World War II with the children.  They had some great knowledge of the period and the children asked some interesting and intelligent questions.  It was great to see family members and friends come in to show off their collections and share their interests.  The children have really had some super first hand experiences.  Thank you.

Star Award Class 1

A star award was given to Alfie for super behaviour in class 1.  Well done keep it up!

World War II day with Class 1

Class 1 children have had a very busy Monday! We were visited by Catherine Conyard from ‘History to Life!’, who had lots of world war 2 facts and activities for us. We were code breakers, learned all about rationing (and promised to eat all of our lunch as a result!) we tried on some helmets and jackets to see how soldiers on the front lines dressed, and we were shocked at how heavy the helmets and some jackets were! As if that wasn’t a busy enough day we’ve also been organising facts about Roald Dahl into chronological order so we can use those as a basis for a biography on the author which we will be compiling throughout this week in literacy!  We even had time to make gas mask boxes to go with our evacuee labels. Phew!

WW2 day.

Today we were lucky enough to have a special visitor who taught us lots of interesting information about the Second World War. To begin we looked at a timeline of events leading to WW2 and how this effected life back home, we learnt all about the blackouts and different countries joining the war, following on from this we separated into groups and conducted investigations into old newspapers, comparing the differences between these old papers and ones we may see today. From this Class two and three learnt about the Enigma codes and we decoded a real message from the Germans. We then had the opportunity to look at different outfits from WW2, these included British and German uniforms. This was a fantastic day and we all learnt lots of new information about the Second World War, the war to end all wars. 

Star Awards in Class 2.

Last weeks Star awards went to: Benjamin, for having a fantastic attitude within all areas of school; Ethan, for trying hard with his presentation within English and; Stevie, for working well within maths and trying different challenges. 

Dance and Instructions – Class 1

The children in class 1 have been doing some dances with Miss Newby from Sportsability and have demonstrated some super movement and routines.  They have also been writing instructions.  They made victory flags linked with World War 2 and wrote their instructions.  From the big writes the children have produced some super work.  Well done!

Star Awards in Class 1

There were star awards for Jorgie, Lola, Zac and Reuben.  All showing great effort and progress.  Well done to all.

Maths in Class 3

Class 3 really enjoyed a ‘code-breaker’ using division and addition.

It was great to see the whole class using their maths brains to work out the code.

There was a real ‘buzz’ of times tables during the calculating.

Well done to all the class.

Golden time in Class 3

We added water and oil to a cup (the water sunk to the bottom of the cup because it is more dense than the oil). Then we added food colouring and an alka seltzer tablet. When we put it in it released carbon dioxide so it was very bubbly like a lava lamp! 🙂

Class 1 Eco Warriors

This afternoon Class 1 came into the classroom to the water tray full of plastic and fish. The children were asked to discuss what they saw. The children made some very good comments on what they saw. The next task for the children was to work in small groups and research plastic in the ocean. The children found out some very interesting facts. 12.7 million tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean each year, plastic is taking over the world, 100,000 animals are killed by plastic each year! The children were very surprised by the facts. We discussed ways to reduce plastic in the ocean including correctly recycling. Finally the children designed their own poster to raise awareness. We hope that after what the children have found out today they will help to reduce plastic in our oceans.

 

Maths in Class 2.

In Maths we have been measuring and on Wednesday Mr Rowe came in and we measured ourselves. 

We measured our ‘fathom’ which was finger tip to finger tip and our heights – to see if they were the same. 

We also measured the circumference of our heads and times this by three to see if this measured the same as our height.

Finally, we measured our ‘femur’ (biggest bone in our bodies) and times this by four to see if this was also the same as our height.

Why not give these measures a go yourself and see if any are the same as your height.

 

Well done Class 2 on a fun measuring lesson. 

Maths in Class 1 – 3D shape.

Year 1 and Foundation were looking at 3D shapes in maths today. They went outdoors to be shape detectives and had fun exploring the foundation stage play area for spheres, pyramids, cubes and cuboids that had been hidden outside.

Busy Day in Class 1

Class 1 have been busy following instructions to make evacuee name tags and tomorrow they will write their own instructions.  In maths Year 2 continue with fractions of quantities and Year 1 number families to 20.  Science involved an investigation into sound and distance.  The children had to record different numbers spoken from different distance.  They recorded their results and made conclusions.  Another busy day.

Boxes

The classes will be making suitcases and gas mask boxes for our history day next Monday.  We need cereal boxes for the suitcases and smaller boxes (tea bag) for the gas mask holders.  If you could send any in it would be appreciated.  Please give them to any member of staff.

Forest Schools

Today the year 1 and 2 children have had a great Forest Schools session. We looked at animals that live in the forest and their habitat. We discussed why we do not see as many animals at this time of year. The children were set a task to create a forest animal using natural resources that they have found in the outside area. The children did an amazing job and were very creative. Oliver and Zak made a hedgehog, Alfie, Reuben and Sidney made a huge snake, Beck and Zac made a fox, Summer and Ellis made a fox, Kaleesi and Alice also made a fox, Alfie and Izobel made a spider eating a fly, Ruby and Jorgie created an owl and Lucie and Ella made a deer, a mouse and a rabbit. What great work!

Class 1 Activities

Class 1 have been busy doing different maths.  Year 2 fractions, Year 1 subtraction to 20 and FS2 addition and subtraction using tens frames.  They have been working hard with lots of success.  In art the children have been making Spitfire model, can’t wait until the ‘Battle of Britain’ starts because they must have made a few squadrons!

Art and Crafts club.

Tonight at Art and Crafts club we began to make clay bowls, these will be painted during next weeks session. Following this we began to make Valentines day cards.

Science in Class 3

This week in Science the children planned and carried out an investigation to see if the surface area of an object affects the amount of water resistance.

Maths in Class 3

This week the children have enjoyed working on fractions using m & m’s 🙂

Jade From Music Preschool Learners Alliance with Foundation.

The foundation children had a special visitor on Monday afternoon. They had lots of fun designing and making music shakers and using these to explore songs and dance. There were even dances which required coloured scarves and all the children enjoyed guessing which song would be next by trying to relate it to the animal which appeared out of Jade’s special song sack.

Class 1 Activites

Class 1 have been busy looking at artefacts brought in from the war, making some super artwork, finishing their Big Maths, adding using objects and even making a train to take evacuees to the countryside from the cities.  Here are just a few of the pictures for you to enjoy.

Sound with Key Stage 1

Today we continued to investigate sounds.  We looked at how sound travels through the air and sounds are made by vibrations using tuning forks.  The children enjoyed the activities and drew some super diagrams of what they did.

Class Two Golden Time.

This week in Class 2, our Golden time was creating fruit kebabs. We were able to try fruits that some children had never tried before and discussed the benefits of eating fruit. I introduced the class to a fruit called a Pomello which everyone really enjoyed. Here’s some photographs from our fantastic session. 

Star Awards in Class 2.

As we didn’t give out any Star Awards last week we had a lot to hand out today. This week we have had some great work within different lessons and brilliant attitudes towards the work and each other.

The Star Awards were awarded to: Harry, for having a fantastic attitude within lesson and towards others; Ezmie and Kaylah for working well within maths; Joshua for his beautiful handwriting; Carter, for trying so hard with his presentation and creating some fantastic work and the final award went to Evie for her amazing WW1 writing.

Today in Class 2.

Today in Class 2 we were lucky enough to have some more army and war artefacts for the children to explore, after passing this around the class and discussing the different qualities and uses we moved onto a very exciting science lesson. Looking at the qualities of light and using it to help us uncover the thief from a WWI trench robbery.

Busy in Class 1

Class 1 have been busy writing World War 2 facts. making a numberline, doing fractions using Numicon and making Spitfires in art.  Here are a few photographs from our day.

Gymnastics Club

Gymnastic club started this week for 5 weeks.  It was open to Year 1 to 5 and we had 10 pupils start.  Everyone appeared to be enjoying the gymnastic skills and were learning how to do a backward roll.  It was nice to see a good turnout and the children with a big smile on their faces.

Sound in Class 1

Class 1 have begun to investigate how sounds are made and travel.  The children used rulers and musical instruments to see how vibrations in materials cause sounds.  They looked at how sounds travel through different materials and the associated terminology such as volume, material and vibration.  There promises to be some noisy experiments and investigations next time.

Our blog page will show a wide range of postings about school life. You can get a glimpse here of the different activities, events and updates that the school is processing throughout the school year.
