A couple of weeks ago the children in the school choir were lucky enough to be involved in recording a new Christmas song with Viking FMs Cash for Kids. “A Winters Dream The Thousand Voices” is now available for Pre-order and will be released on Friday 6th December. Available on Amazon Music, iTunes and Google Play. Please support the charity and our Choir by downloading the song. Our wish is that is gets to Number 1 in the charts.

Super Subtraction!

Year one have been very busy in Maths this week learning how to use the subtraction symbol.

We started off with some practical work taking away objects from one and other.

Then, we practiced subtraction sentences using the crossing out method.

Now, we are practicing using a number line to subtract, which will help us when the numbers get bigger and trickier!

Just look at some of our brilliant work in our books! Miss Farrah is very proud!

Autumn is here!

This week, year one have been learning about the change of seasons and changes in the weather. I think we can all agree that it has definitely got a little chillier these past few weeks!

After a discussion of what happens to the trees and the weather in Autumn, we decided to get our coats on and head outside to look for signs that Autumn is definitely here!

We found lots of beautifully coloured leaves in shades of red, pink, brown, yellow and red. We even found some conkers!

What a lovely afternoon it has been.

Hull Fair Artwork!

Year one have been busy getting creative with oil pastels this week!

First, we listened to and watched videos of Hull Fair to immerse ourselves. Then, we carefully designed our hull fair artwork using oil pastels on black card to create the effect of a night sky.

Just look at some of our masterpieces!

Our Trip to the Streetlife Museum

Year 3 and 4 have been on trips to the Streetlife Museum this week! The purpose of our visit was to take part in a workshop called ‘A Child’s War: Evacuation’. During the day, we got evacuated to the countryside, explored a 1940’s street scene and found a bike that had been used by soldiers in WWII. We had a great day!

 

European Day of Languages!

Ola! Bonjour! Guten Tag! Ciao! Yasuo!

On Thursday Y56 celebrated European Day of Languages 2019 with a tour of different European countries to learn different languages.

Children got to grip with Spanish, French, German, Italian and Greek! They completed lots of small activities and worked hard to master new words and pronounce them clearly – well done children!

Layla created a super German cartoon strip using basic conversation language

Y5JON have a super time learning Spanish!

The Greek language went down well but not everyone was keen on the olives!

This week we have been learning to throw and catch a ball. We started by warming up and stretching.

We used a chest pass to throw the ball to each other.

We also practised over head passes and underarm throws.

While our partners were throwing, we were catching the balls. We had to make sure our arms were out and our knees were bent ready to catch the ball!

At the end we showcased our skills to the rest of our class!

Stay and Read

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!
