Every week, the Y2 staff will be choosing a pupil to be crowned ‘Reading Champion’ to encourage the love of reading and for the children to share and read books at home and in school.
This weeks reading champion is Molly who is currently reading George’s Marvellous Medicine! Well done Molly!
I am reading George’s Medicine and I am really enjoying it. My favourite part is where the Grandma and George are mean to each other. He is so polite but his Grandma is mean to him.
I have got up to the part where where Grandma can no longer fit in the house because George has made a medicine so that she has grown so tall.
I really like reading at home and I always read at bedtime. by Molly
In F1 we have started building our own stories using our Tales Toolkit. We know a story needs a character, setting, problem and solution.
The National Association for the Teaching of English ran a survey to find teachers’ top 100 fiction books all children should read before leaving primary school. Here are the results:
What a lovely time we had, when the parents came into school to play.

We enjoyed learning about the famous poem in Flanders Fields as it was written during WW1 and links to our topic work. We worked in pairs to rehearse the poem, taking into consideration our pace and pronunciation. We hope you enjoy our videos.

This week the children in Year 2 have looked at the story ‘Elmer on Stilts’.
The children acted out the story and created a story map.
They also wrote a setting description and a character description.
Today the children re-wrote the story. They have learned how to use paragraphs!
Well done Year 2!
WOW! What an amazing couple of weeks reading we have had! Children have been working so hard on Lexia and Reading Plus there has been no shortage of certificates! Well done children, keep it up!
In KS1 this week we have had so much fun carrying out Hull Fair activities.
In Y2, we have been very creative using our senses to describe what we can see, hear, taste, smell and feel at the fair and have written some wonderful poems using lots of adjectives and prepositions.
We have all made chocolate apples and have written some very clear instructions for how to make them.
Parents, carers and grandparents in Y3/4 were invited to come into school to stay and read this week. They also got the chance to see our lovely new classrooms and meet our new teacher. We read a story to our adult and then our adult read a story to us! We also looked at the Y3/4 common exception words that we need to learn by the end of the year.
Thank you for joining us!
