Our library day is on Tuesday. Please can you make sure that your child’s reading and library book is in their book bag everyday.

PE Kits - Please make sure both indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school all week.

Homelearning - We ask that children read daily either using their reading book which has be sent home or by accessing Bug Club. In addition to this, children are asked to complete Times Table Rockstars throughout the week.

Autumn 2019

This half term, our topic will be The House.

We started our topic by investigating a picture of a house! We discussed who might live there and where the house might be! 

We looked at physical and human features and the difference between and town and village.

Part way through our topic, we decided to investigate where we get our food from.

We went on a trip to Morrisons where Lindsay, our local Community Champion, showed us around the store. We learnt about different types of produce that Morrisons have to offer and where exactly certain products come from! We even got to try different tasty items from around the store including mango, cheese and even freshly baked cookies made in store!

We then found out that the house from the beginning of our topic was actually a farmer from Carlton! He gave us a design brief of making him something bright, juicy and healthy for breakfast. She we decided to make him some yummy fruit kebabs!

We worked our way through the design process of planning, making and evaluating our fruit kebabs. We begin with testing out different fruits and deciding with combinations of flavour would work well together.

When making our product, we learnt how to cut various fruits correctly. Mrs Smillie taught us how to hold the utensils correctly and how to keep safe in the kitchen!

Autumn 1 2019

This half term, our topic will be Kings, Queens and Castles!

We kicked off our topic by looking at Kings and Queens that we already knew.

We spent some time researching Queen Elizabeth II.

We found out lots of interesting facts about her and her family!

Using the money KS1 had raised from Enterprise Week, we had a special visitor who came in and spoke to use about Kings and Queens from a long time ago.

We would like to thank the PTA for making this happen with their kind donation!!

Later in the term, we began to look at castles. We located famous castles in and around Yorkshire using maps and then started to look at the features of a castle. Then as a challenge, we got to build our own castles! Once they were built, we had great fun trying to knock then down!

In English, we have been creative and have been writing character and setting descriptions.

We looked in depth at Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood.

We mapped out both the stories as a class to understand what makes up each part of a good story.

We used our fantastics to help us create detailed character and setting descriptions.

This half term, we also celebrated Black History Month.

We looked at various influential figures including Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Lewis Hamilton.

We then took an indepth look at Albert Johanneson.  Albert was a South African professional footballer who was one of the first high-profile black men to play top-flight football in England. 

Albert Johanneson played 200 times for Leeds from 1961 to 1969 and appeared in the 1965 Wembley final. He is recognised as being the first person of African heritage to play in the FA Cup final in 1965.
