Nice 2B Nice therapy dog was in school this week. Class 3 were very lucky to have him for a full session. Lewis was showing off his tricks and trying out some new ones. As Lewis goes in to hospitals he has been learning to have his heart beat listened to with a stethoscope, his teeth checked and even his blood pressure taken. In our session, Dave Freer awarded Lois Chelu with a printed plaque of her winning design to celebrate Lewis as a ‘Therapy Dog’. She was also given her own cuddly dog. Congratulation to Zuzanna as well who came runner up in the design competition.
Class 2 have been learning about 2D shape this week. They have learnt about the properties of 2D shape, how to check a right angle, symmetry and different types of lines. In ICT we have use a great APP called Quiver. It allows the children to print out 2D drawing and shape (many free), colour them in and view them as 3D shapes. Great fun and even shows how Nets create 3D shapes.
We have lots of sports event coming up and due to the weather and lack of numbers we have been unable to attend recent sporting competitions. Please sign up to these events and get our children to represent the school and give it a go. The next events are as follows:

We started learning about the human body and today we looked at the human skeleton. The children recorded some facts about the skeleton and labelled a drawing. The Year 3 children in particular had lots of previous knowledge about the skeleton that they shared with everyone. A good start to our topic.
Welcome back after the Easter holidays. We have already got to work on the new term. Our theme is ‘World of Fantasy’. We will be covering a lot of descriptive language using fairy tales, stories of pirates and wizards. In science we will be looking at the human body and materials. Hull City coaches are coming in to coach football and run a football club on Tuesdays. There are also a few competitions which include both Class 2 and 3. RE continues to look at the Christian and Hindu religions, in particular, places of worship. Maths is a consolidation of previous learning with a focus on measures, shapes and time. Our ICT will cover word processing and presentations. We continue to use Purple Mash, a great resource for the children to use in and out of school. This term will be a busy term and here are a few pictures of our start to the Summer. Let’s hope the weather is kinder to us.
I just wanted to say a great big thank you to Class 3 and Paull Primary for making me so welcome. We’ve had an extremely busy term. Great homework guys (especially to Erin – 20 m long fantastic!) I can’t wait for A world of fantasy next term. I’ve got a feeling that I might have had enough of unicorns by the end of it lol. Have a great Easter.
Class 1 have had an introduction to woodwork. After the Easter holidays the children will be able to access woodwork as part of the classroom provision. Today we have talked through the safety aspects of using tools. Every child has been shown how to use each tool correctly. Donations of off cuts of untreated soft wood would be greatly appreciated, if you have some spare in your shed. Thank you Class 1.
Class 1 have been waiting along time for the sun to make an appearance. Today we have made the most of it and taken our learning outside. The children have planted some more flowers and turned it into a wishing plant pot. We have also written recipes for the mud kitchen, looked at forces, pushing and pulling and turned the wendy house into a baby clinic.
The whole school took part in the annual Egg Roll. All the children had a great afternoon. Thank you to the parents that came to support. Some children also took part in the Best Decorated Egg. We saw some great designs, well done to those children that took part.
The winners of the Egg Roll were: Ellis, Zak, Lucie, Stevie, Maddie, Ava, Samuel and Zuzanna.
The winners of the Best Decorated Egg were: Jacob, Summer, Beck, Ezmie, Summer, Jasmine, Poppy and Thomas.
Thank you to FOPS for organising this event.
All the children and staff in Class 1 would like to say a big thank you to Oakleaf Landscapes in Camerton for providing all the flowers we needed to make our outdoor area look pretty. Not only did they provide lots of spring flowers but they also left every child in class 1 a little Easter treat. Thank you Oakleaf Landscapes.
Class 2 carried out an investigation into air resistance. Last week the children had written an instruction how to make a paper aeroplane and this week they were performing an investigation using paper aeroplanes. The children had three sheets of paper of different sizes and made the same paper aeroplane design with each sheet. The investigation looked at which paper aeroplane would fly the further and if air resistance would effect it. The results were varied although the children enjoyed the activities and were able to record their findings and record them a in table.
Please find attached information about the Cake and Bake being held on Thursday 22nd March.
Miss Bayley our student teacher is leaving us today. she has been a great member of staff and has taught some amazing lessons including Traction Man, Burglar Bill and introduced new games in Maths. She has run an art club alongside Miss Swatman, which the children loved. We want to wish you all the luck and success in the future, we know you will be a fantastic teacher. Love Class 1.
We have had some more fantastic homework in Class 1 this week, well done Beck, Kaleesi and Zak.
Well done to the children who have completed this half terms home learning tasks. Here are just a few of the amazing creations. Oliver has made his very own lava lamp rocket, Ruby Jo has made a rocket from junk modelling and Reuben and designed his very own astronaut.
Miss Swatman our student teacher leaves us at the end of this week. She has been a great asset to class 2 and taught the children some super lessons. They have written newspaper reports, star wars stories, diaries and instructions. She has run a super art club and done a great lesson on air resistance. The photographs show her teaching instructions and making a special space recipe. Thank you form Class 2.
Mr Hicks visited Class 2 to talk to us about E Safety. Mr Hicks told us about the different types of social media and games we can contact people and how they and we should behave when communicating with each other. It was nice to have someone from business link with school in this way. Kai and Lillie won the Easter eggs for listening well and asking some thought provoking questions. A big thank you Mr Hicks from Class 2.
Class 1 could not believe their eyes when they came back from dinner and their classroom was not as they left it! Miss Doney had brought her fairies in from home to show the children, but unfortunately the fairies decided to cause mischief over dinnertime. We have been very busy looking through all the evidence left behind by the culprits. We came to the conclusion that two Class 3 pupils were the cause of the mayhem, after they had been tricked by the mischievous fairies. We have seen some fantastic investigators in Class 1 today.
Mr Hicks visited Class 1 to talk to them about E Safety. Mr Hicks read a child friendly story that demonstrated the misuse of social media and how this impacts young children. Mr Hicks kindly presented Reuben and Izobel with a prize for good involvement within the discussion. Thank you Mr Hicks from Class 1.
Class 2 have been doing problem solving in preparation for the Spring term maths tests. They have been encouraged to us different resources to aid solving their problems and to make attempt independently. They children have been working hard. In addition, they have been playing games like guess the number by asking mathematical questions.
Class 2 have been looking at different forces. This week they investigated air resistance. The groups designed different balloons with additional items such as wings or a nose cone to see if is would travel further. It was difficult to decide which design was the best because although some were streamline, we felt that gravity had an effect on the amount of paper attached to the balloon. In conclusion it was decide that maybe we should have another go next week with modified designs.
Today Class 2 were playing rugby. They started by doing a warm up, boys against girls. The first team to 50 wins. Unfortunately if you drop the ball your number goes back to 0. They soon started to play touch rugby as it was the second to last time playing rugby. Everyone enjoyed it. By Kacey Year 3
What an exciting Monday morning Class 1 have had! We have had a burglar in our classroom who has stolen lots of items from the children. Burglar Bill got more than what he bargained for, when he realised that one of his stolen items was a baby. After acting out the story all the children made a wanted poster to help find Burglar Bill. The children are going to have to be extra aware this week as I feel this isn’t the last we have seen of Burglar Bill.
Class 2 have been doing music with Mr Shaw. This week they have been thinking about stories that would go with different types of music and learning to play the recorder. It was a good week this week with some imaginative stories that match the rhythm and theme of the music, and good note played on the recorders. Well done Class 2!
Class 2 and 3 went to the National Railway museum to see Tim Peake’s Space capsule. On arrive the children had an educational session on rocket to bullet. There were demonstrations on forces and combustion engines. Following this children had a tour around the railway museum and were able to see Tim Peake’s space capsule and spacesuit. The children really enjoyed their visit thanks to the museum staff and all the staff who supervised them during the visit. Here are some of the pictures taken.
All the children have been very busy this morning preparing for the Teddy bear’s picnic later. They have written instructions on how to make a sandwich, jelly or crispy buns.They then made placemats and then followed their instructions to make the crispy buns and sandwiches. We cant wait to see the parents later.
We had a visit from the dog’s trust tell us about the work they do and how to be a responsible owner. The children asked some intelligent and interesting questions about caring for dogs. They all received a certificate and sticker for their goo responses to how to keep yourself safe near strange dogs and what things can be dangerous for dog’s to eat.
Class 2 are learning about forces this half term. We thought about what we knew and discussed the different forces such as friction, magnetic, gravity, air resistance and water resistance. Over the next three weeks we will be doing investigations looking at the effects of gravity, air resistance and friction.
Today the children have had a very active maths lesson. We have looked at data handling and how we can record our findings. The children set off in small groups to create their own table. Once this had been done they used resources they found around the playground to group and then count. The children really enjoyed working together to complete their charts.
The whole school have been producing dances with the theme ‘Tomorrow’s world’. There are two videos of Class 1 and four for Class 2. Unfortunately, the Class 3 video was done upside down and needs to be recorded again, so as soon as this is done it will be posted. Please enjoy.
For literacy class 1 have been learning about the book ‘Traction Man is Here’ and the superhero adventures he experiences saving many different creatures around the house. Anything from saving stranded spoons, to recovering the lost wreck of the sieve. Today we decided that we would act out some of the adventures Traction Man undertook, so we went onto the playground and enjoyed some role play. The children thoroughly engaged within this experience, and were overcome with joy when we had to rescue our friends from the clutches of the evil dishcloth. The children are all now looking forward to learning about many other adventures Traction Man goes on further within the book in later literacy lessons.
This afternoon we have had a very special visitor come into school. Lewis is a therapy dog who works with the charity Nice 2B Nice. Some of the children in class 1 have read to Lewis to help him with his on going training. The children really enjoyed reading to him. we wish Lewis all the best working with this amazing charity.
Today Miss Doney created a different tough spot for the children to enjoy. It involved different coloured rice with various tools to play with. As soon as the children saw all the bright colours and interesting textures, they raced to the opportunity to enjoy the new tough spot. We also created marshmallow play dough and peppermint play dough for the children to investigate. All these new smells and textures caused the feeling of excitement in the air to become apparent. The children are looking forward to the next wonderful and weird creation Miss Doney imagines for the classroom!
