Welcome to Class One
We have been learning a seasonal dance in PE. Can you guess which animals we are or what we are doing?
What a fantastic start we have had to the year. Class 1 visited Breckenholme Farm and enjoyed the beautiful scenery around Thixendale. This led to some beautiful art work which is displayed in our classroom.
As a school we were extremely lucky to be visited by the Royal Institution who did a great job inspiring pupils and parents with their fantastic science display. Supporting our drive to Reduce, reuse and recycle we also participated in a creative day organised by Hull Scrap store building models which you can now see within the school grounds.
Class 1 continued their research into farming with visits from Mrs Emerson and Mrs Waters. They learnt all about harvest, made corn dollies and even made some pumpkin soup which the whole school enjoyed.
Next 1/2 term we will be looking at instructional writing, apostrophes and recycling. We will also be using our problem solving skills to solve addition and subtraction problems and learn all about different habitats and plants. Spellings will continue in the same format and there will be extra points rewarded for an improvement in scores or 10/10.
I would be much appreciated if parents could keep revisiting the children’s number bonds to 10 and spend time rehearsing lines for this year’s nativity called 'A Christmas Recipe.'
Pupils are expected to read at least three times a week and have their reading record signed by an adult. Once the children have read please question their understanding by asking them to make predictions and comparisons to other stories and by relating what has happened in home life.
When have you ever felt like this? What happened?
Are there any similarities or differences to the other books you’ve read?
What do you think will happen to the characters next?
On the odd occasion that Mr Duffill sets other homework please allow the children to complete the work independently before offering assistance when required. Remember work at home will be rewarded with dojos.
Please remember PE kit needs to be in school all week.
If you ever have any queries however small please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher.
Reading: To read with expression.
English: To check what you have written.
