Santa visit.

This week in Class Two we have been creating letters to Santa and today after completing our Big Writes we had a visit from the man himself.

Golden Time in Class Two.

 Golden Time this week was spent making Kevin the Carrot hot chocolate and decorating buns. We loved it and have created some yummy treats!

Christmas decorations in Class Two.

 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.

Christmas Tree

Thanks to the Year 6 for decorating the Christmas Tree. Lovely team work in the construction and creation. Well done Mrs T and Year 6!

Pantomime

Last week the children went to the Village Hall and watched Chapin’s  version of Cinderella. It was great to see the children fully amazed and engaged in the performance. Thanks to FOPS for organising and funding the treat.

St Andrews Day

The school walked together very sensibly up to St Andrew’s Church to celebrate St Andrew’s Day. The children were able to recall facts about St Andrew and Rev. John told a story. All the children sang beautifully in church and had a super afternoon. 

Golden time in Class 3

This afternoon in Class 3 we made slime and it was really fun. If you don’t believe me then look at the pictures! We even used caramel flavouring to make it smell like christmas 🙂 We made massive slime bubbles and it was very stretchy and gooey! By Tye

Star Awards in Class 3

Kacey, Ruby and Poppy received the awards for super work on pie charts. Well done 🙂

Forest School session for all class 1

Welcome to our new FS1 Children

This morning we have had a taster session with our 3 new children who will be joining us after Christmas. The children have had a lovely morning meeting new friends and getting involved with lots of activities.

Junk Modelling – Class 1

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.

Maths in Class 1

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 Christmas Nativity Play

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!

                       

 

Christingle Assembly

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.

Headscarf Heroes.

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’.

People who help us in Class 1

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.

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.

People who help us – Class 1

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.

Science in Class 1

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.

Egyptian Day.

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!

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.
