Yesterday and today Class Two created their own salt dough decorations, working in groups to create the decorations from scratch. From measuring and mixing the ingredients to sharing the mixture the class worked well showing team work and cooperation. After baking the decorations overnight we were able to paint and decorate our creations this afternoon.
Class 1 will be doing a design and technology day next Monday and will need some cardboard and items to build their models. Cardboard boxes (cereal boxes thin for cutting), straws, small yogurt cartons, kitchen roll inserts or egg boxes would be useful. Please could you send items to Class 1 staff. Thank you.
Class 1 have continued to work hard while all the festive activities have been going on. Today Year 2 have been writing problems linked to multiplication and division. While Year 1 have been concentrating on reading, ordering and partitioning numbers to 20. All the children have completed an Autumn test and there have been some outstanding results. Well done to the children for their hard work during Autumn.
Class 1 performed their Christmas Nativity Play today to Class 2 and 3 in the morning and, parents and carers in the afternoon. There were rave reviews from pupils and parents. The costumes and back drops were great, singing was fantastic and the lines were read clearly and loudly. You would be forgiven to think that this was performed by older children because of the slick and smooth way the play went. A big thank you goes to Mrs Beadle and Mrs Threlfall for helping with the back drops, organising the children and supporting them during the play. An even bigger thank you goes to Miss Doney who wrote, produced and directed the play and gave the children a super platform to show their talents. The final sold out performance is tomorrow afternoon. Well done to all of Class 1!
Mrs Burn and Rev Philip West came into school for our Christingle Assembly. Mrs Burn and Mrs Wigg helped the children make the Christingles during the morning. Then we had an assembly at the end of the day to celebrate the meaning of our Christingles. They learnt that the orange represents the earth, the red ribbon represents the blood of Jesus, the four sticks represents the seasons, the raisins represent the food of the world and the candle the light of Jesus. Many parents and family attended to make the assembly another memorable celebration. Thank you to all those who contributed to the charity part of Christingle.
This week we handed out 4 Star Awards in Class 2 to Kaylah, Kai, Harry and Summer. Kaylah received her Star Award through her hard work in maths recently, she has been working fantastically independently and this is really showing in her work- along with scoring the highest in the class for the multiplication test. Kai received his award thanks to his brilliant attitude in all lessons, contributing throughout and supporting his classmates. Harry created a fantastic descriptive back story for my mystery headscarf, using lots of adjectives and working hard on presentation. Summer received her star award because this was the third week scoring 10/10 in her weekly spelling tests. Well done Class 2, keep up the good work!.
Class Two have been looking at Hull’s Headscarf Heroes, focusing on Yvonne Blenkinsop who turned on Hull’s Christmas lights 50 years after the campaign to improve the safety of Hull’s trawlers. Today the children took part in some ‘hot-seating’, creating questions from the point of an interviewer as well as the response of Blenkinsop. Finally the children wore the headscarf to play the part of Yvonne Blenkinsop and received questions from the class ‘reporters’.
Today we had a visit from Mrs Valentine, who came to talk about her profession as a nurse. She gave the children lots of interesting information about her job and what you needed to do to become a nurse. She brought in equipment to show the children what she used when examining and monitoring patients. The most pleasing thing were some of the interesting and inquisitive questions the children asked her. A super experience which I think Zak enjoyed the most. A big thank goes to Mrs Valentine.
Today in science, Class 3 made Knex vehicles. We had a fantastic science lesson, it was so much fun! We worked together to figure out who’s vehicle went the furthest when we put a 1 kg weight on it. It had to go down a ramp. We also tried it without a weight it went way further. We put the weight in different places to see what happened. Our winners were Max, Evie J and Evie F. By Logan
Mrs Threlfall as asked if anyone could bring in plastic bottles for Monday’s Christmas carousel to make snowflakes. It will be appreciated for anyone who can help.
On Friday the children took part in Children In Need. The children were invited to buy a ticket to wear it spotty. Through out the day the children did lots of different spotty activities including spotty maths, decorating biscuits, spotty stories and slime making. It was great to see the children’s homemade spotty T Shirts. Overall the children raised a whopping £155. Well done to all that got involved.
Class 1 have been looking at people who help us. Last lesson we looked at people who helped us in school and today we looked at doctors. The children learnt about what a doctor might have to do in a surgery, the equipment they might use and the names for different things linked to doctors. The children used stethoscopes and looked at x-rays. Next week we will be looking at a nurse and hopefully have one of our professional parents come in to discuss their role as a nurse.
Class 1 carried out an investigation into the force of friction. They pulled a trainer with a weight inside over different surfaces to see which surface had the most frictional force. The children used a forcemeter to take readings of the force in Newtons. Another successful investigation lead by Year 2 in mixed age groups.

Today Class 1 investigated the effects of gravity. They completed investigation sheets as a whole class looking at what question to ask, fair testing and interpreting the results. The children let toy cars go down chutes at different heights and measured how far the cars had travelled in centimetres. The children had to think carefully about what they did and complete detailed records. A good activity enjoyed by all.
On Monday, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Catherine, a special historian who talked to us all about the Ancient Egyptians. We were first introduced to the archaeological evidence, the children were able to investigate the use of different equipment and use investigations and observations to work out what these things may have been used for. We then split into our classes and worked on some more Egyptian themed activities, these included creating our own name using hieroglyphics; Mummification and looking at a brain hook, death mask’s , scarab’s, amulets and charms, canopic jars, nitron and bandages and we also played a game of Mehen. After lunch we returned to the hall to look more at the different Warfare including: a sword, shield’s, spear, axe, throwing sticks, bow and arrows. The day was finished with a final game of Seega, this was a game using different strategies to make a line using three stones. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we had some very interesting discussions. What a brilliant day!

Today in Science class 3 did an experiment on how the water cycle works and how it happens. Also Class 3 learnt a song about the water cycle. We learnt that another word for rain is precipitation.
First class 3 did a drawing on the water cycle and labelled the drawing. Second we did an experiment on the water cycle.
Class 3 put a bowl with hot water and it had an empty cup inside. Then we wrapped the bowl over with cling film and waited to see what happened to the cling film. So after we looked in the cup we saw a little bit of water in the cup. It was condensation.
Class 1 have been straight into action. We have welcomed a new pupil to reception Cody who immediately settled in and worked hard in phonics. The whole class started a new topic in science, covering forces. Today they learnt about force meters and how to use them to measure forces in Newtons. A busy start to the second half of Autumn.
Today in Literacy we are doing our Big Writes, this is a non-chronological report based on Ancient Egypt. On Monday we worked in groups to order different facts under the correct subheading, this has given us all an idea of the arrangement for our own reports. I am excited to see what the class produces as we all seem to know lots of interesting facts about Ancient Egypt.
This week Class 1 have been looking at magnetic and non-magnetic materials. They carried out an investigation of different materials and recorded their answers in a table. They also learnt about where magnets can be useful in our lives. There were some interesting discussions and learning taking place. Well done Class 1.
Many thanks to all the families and friends who donated food for our Harvest Festival. It was great to see so much produce on our tables.

The EYFS children have had a fantastic Forest Schools session today. The children discussed trees and leaves. The children showed lots of curiosity about how trees grow and why some trees loose their leaves. We went outside and collected lots of different leaves. The children used the magnifying glasses to explore the different patterns. Once the children had collected lots of leaves they did some leaf painting and rubbing.
This morning the EYFS children have been busy building dens. The children used a parachute to make the den. Once the children had completed the den they worked together to make a campfire. Next the children wanted some food so they used the mud kitchen to make pies. When the children had finished eating their mud pies they told stories around the campfire. All the children had great team building skills and developed their ideas well.
