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!

Year 2 English

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!

Learning how to use Laptops

In Year 2 we have been practising logging on and off the laptops. We have been accessing our J2e accounts and have been creating some super Hull Fair pictures using lots of colours and shapes.

We are getting used to using the mouse and have even learned how to save some of our work!

Hull Fair comes to KS1

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.

 

We used our nose, mouth, hands, ears and eyes to work out what was in the senses boxes.

 

We had lots of fun trying to work out what we could see, smell, hear, touch and taste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We wrote down our responses and compared notes with each other.

We worked incredibly hard all afternoon and had great fun!!

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!
