Summer Term Family Learning

Wow! What busy but fantastic afternoon! Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to enjoy our afternoon of craft and planting.

The children had a great time planting cress and broad beans, making foot print butterflies, drawing giant bean stalks and drawing mini beasts with oil pastels.

  

Crafting up the classroom…

This week has been ‘Hook Week’ and we’ve all loved making crafts to decorate and immerse our classroom for our theme ‘What’s living at the bottom of the garden?’

We can’t wait for our family learning session tomorrow afternoon to make even more exciting decorations and craft. We hope you can join us!

Here are some of our children making paper plate mini beasts yesterday.

When Alex from Hays Salon came to visit…

Alex came to visit us yesterday from Hays Salon in Hull as part of our Aspirations Week. Alex talked to us about his childhood, schooling and how he came to be a successful hairdresser and business owner. The children loved his visit and were inspired to write many facts about Alex, his salon and his life.

A huge thank you to Alex from all of Year One for coming to visit us.

 

 

Thank you Mel!

A huge thank you from us to Mel for coming in to visit us today. Mel shared with us some of her father’s professional art work and showed us how to create some illustrations. She even created us a drawing mascot who we gave the name ‘Marshmallow’.

Before Mel left she asked us to look carefully at Vincent Van Gogh’s 1888 ‘Sunflowers’. This afternoon, the children loved recreating drawings of sunflowers in vases.

Thank you Mel for being such a great inspiration to our children.

See you soon!

Awesome Oliver and Faith

Oliver has once again been doing some fantastic home learning over half term. He has explored Thorne and taken photographs. He has then compared his modern day photographs to old images of the same place. If you would like to take a look at Oliver’s home learning, it is proudly displayed in our classroom. Well done Oliver!

 

Faith has been so so brave over half term after several visits to hospital. Here is Faith with her bravery awards. Well done Faith for being a superstar! I am very proud of you!

Dan the Builder in KS1

Dan the builder came to visit the KS1 children last week to talk about how houses and other buildings are made. He talked about the different materials needed to create a house and what they were each used for. All of the children and staff loved his visit and found out lots of interesting facts. Thank you Dan for taking time to visit us!

If you can tell your teacher something you learnt from Dan or an interesting fact about materials used to build a house, you will be rewarded with 10 house points!
