Amazing Writers!

Children in year 2 have been trying super hard with their creative writing this week. We have retold the story of the Rainbow Fish, wrote a diary entry and a letter too. Just look at some of our gorgeous handwriting!

Welcome Back KS1!

Welcome back to the summer term in Year 1/2!

Our pod has been transformed into an beautiful ocean ready for us to learn about our new topic ‘What would you find in the Ocean?’.

Spring is Here!

Year 1 have been busy looking out for signs of spring on our school site.

 

We spotted that the pretty yellow daffodils are starting to grow and the leaves are returning on the bare branches. We even spotted a ladybird too!

Visit from a Police Officer!

On Monday KS1 were lucky enough to have a special visit from PC Robertson. She told us all about the fantastic job police officers do to keep us safe.

We talked about what anti-social behaviour is in our local area and what we can do if we don’t feel safe.

PC Robertson then asked for our help in designing a poster for our local park to encourage people to do the right thing. The winner of the competition will have their poster displayed in Pickering Park and receive a £10 Smyths toys voucher!

 

Thanks so much for visiting us PC Robertson!

World Book Day

We had a fabulous week this week celebrating World Book Day. We came to school dressed as our favourite book character!

There were some amazing costumes!

The theme for World Book Day this year was ‘Share a Story’ so our day including several different storytelling sessions. During assembly with Miss Stathers, the whole school did a choral rehearsal of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ using sounds instead of words!

In the afternoon,  we split into our houses to share a story. The teachers in each house read their favourite stories and then the children found a buddy to share a story with.

The older children were fantastic with the younger children.

We had a brilliant day and can’t wait for next year!

Year 2 Maths

Yesterday, we learned how to share objects equally. We worked in teams to share different objects into groups of two. We then counted how many objects were in each group.

After practising sharing objects using concrete manipulatives, we were then able to share pictorially.

 

Forest School Fun!

This week in Forest School we enjoyed the story Room on the Broom. We searched for suitable magic wands and broomsticks that we could use to act out the story ourselves in the woods. We even made a magic potion just like the witch did at the end of the story! And of course we enjoyed warming up with some hot chocolate afterwards.

Visit from Hull FC Players

Year 1/2 had an exciting afternoon today meeting Hull FC players Masimbaashe Matongo and Charlie Patterson-Lund. The children asked some brilliant questions such as “How do you celebrate after a match?”, “How many games have you won?” and “What is your favourite football team?”. We learned lots of fun facts about what it takes to be a professional rugby player too!

Thanks for visiting us!

 

Amazing Hot Writes!

This week the children in Year 1 have worked extremely hard in their English lessons.

They have been engaging in lots of activities based on the story Lost and Found such as; describing a Polar Explorer, sequencing the story and changing parts of story!

They have finished the week off by engaging in their Hot Writes and have produced some FANTASTIC pieces of work!
