Living together - Learning together
On this page you can see updates over the term of our activities and learning.
Remote learning activity packs for Foundation stage children include:
The Year 1 children had great fun making the moon buggies that they had designed with Mrs. Amos and Mrs. Christie.
C- It was tricky to put the wheels on.
L- I made a satellite with a straw and some foil.
E- My moon buggy has seats inside, so the astronauts can drive it.
L- We used old boxes and old lids, it was recycling things.
K- I stuck buttons on my moon buggy. They are the controls.
Children learnt about ways to keep safe and how to cross the road safely as part of 'Road Safety Week'. They painted road safety signs and labelled the pictures.
For Anti-Bullying Week children have discussed different bullying scenarios and what they could to do.
Wearing our odd socks to raise awareness about all children being different and everyone being special.
Children dress in their own clothes and made their own Pudsey Bear ears to raise money for Children In Need.
Children cut poppies to make a wreath for Remembrance Day, observed the 2 minute silence and looked at artefacts from WW2 such as a soldier's uniform.
The Year 1 children worked with Mrs. Amos (our Science leader). They investigated which material would be the most suitable to make a new umbrella for Winnie the Pooh.
W- We dropped water on different materials to see if any of them were waterproof.
H- I predicted cardboard would be waterproof. I waited to see if it soaked up the water and after a long wait it did. So it wouldn't be very good to make an umbrella with.
E- The fabric went very soggy.
E- My tissue paper got wet and started to tear.
D- We found out that plastic is waterproof. The water didn't soak in. The water just stayed on top.
C- We found out that Winnie the Pooh's new umbrella should be made of plastic because plastic is waterproof.
It's been a busy start to the year, taking our learning outdoors. From investigating sound travel through pipes, writing letters and numbers with sticks in mud, brushes of water or pens to serving delicious meals in the outdoor cafe. There is certainly always lots to do.
Take a look at our Bonfire work this week.
We used chalk to draw fireworks outside and make firework in the purple sparkly sand.
Humberside Fire and Rescue shared an assembly online about keeping safe during bonfire night and we sequenced pictures from the Gunpowder Plot story learning all about Guy Fawkes, King James 1 and the 36 barrels of gunpowder hidden in the Houses of Parliament!
Some beautiful firework paintings and play dough toffee apples too.
In our Humberside Fire and Rescue online assembly we learnt;
T.T - If you get fire on your jumper you must roll over on the floor.
E.A - The Fire Safety assembly I learnt that you must 'STOP, DROP and ROLL' if you catch fire.
A.T - You don't play near the fire.
E.E - The quiz was good, you had to say 'Yes' or 'No' to the things that you could or couldn't play with and I got them all right.
O.B - Put sparklers in a bucket of water when they have finished.
S.P - Don't throw fireworks, it's dangerous.
"Have a safe and happy Bonfire Night everyone."
Pupils voice following our 'Big Talk' visit about ourselves, our bodies and who would be a trusted adult.
MH - The questions were good and I got them all right.
EA - Talking about when we do and don't do things like not wearing clothes to school was funny!
LB - The 'thumbs up or down' was a good game.
LP - The pictures were good, it helped me learn.
LB - I learnt about who would be a trusted adult.

Foundation children have been learning about jobs around the home. Take a look at what our families do and how busy they are taking care of our homes.
Our Head Boy and Head Girl delivered our virtual assembly on Friday for Macmillan Coffee morning. They shared with the whole school how Macmillan came about and how the donations received from families help those that are currently suffering with cancer- Well done for delivering a fantastic 'virtual' assembly!
Seedlings took part to raise funds for Macmillan by designing and colouring a cupcake sticker and singing a sign language song 'Hands in the air'. We certainly did a great job!
