Farewell Miss Barkas
Sadly, it is time to say Goodbye to Miss Barkas
We have had a great six weeks with Miss Barkas and the children have loved having her in Class 9. Here she is sharing a special card made by the children and Mrs Arden.
Let's have a party!
To celebrate we had a leaving party and some yummy treats! It was quite an emotional day.
Time to dance
What amazing dancers we have in our class!
The children learnt a new dance today .... the Cha Cha Slide.
Check out Class 9 on LINCS FM Radio - Little School - Week 11
We had a visit from the Lincs FM's Joesph Begley today as he wanted to speak to the children to find out what they had been learning about.
Luckily, Class 9 were full of facinating facts about CHOCOLATE. The children were full of enthausiasm and were so excited to take part in the show and actually be on the radio!
It was lovely listening to the children speaking on the radio as I drove to work this morning!
Even Mrs Woodrow was listening to them on the radio as she prepared the school dinners in the canteen earlier this morning.
Class 9 love to investigate!
Today they have been exploring changes of state.
They were asked to predict what would happen when heat was applied to an egg, bread & chocolate.
This is what happened.
Some children thought the egg would change colour and others thought it would become scrambled egg.
Most children knew that chocolate would melt and that bread would become hard and crusty!
It smells delicious!
The children enjoyed smelling all the foods this afternoon.
Now we just have to wait and see what happens on Monday.
The food has been placed in the fridge over the weekend ... Will they return to their original state after being cooled again?
Discuss at home with your family.
Every child made their own poppy which was then made into a wreath for us to take to the Cenotaph in Scunthorpe. The children would like to show their support for those who lost their lives in the war, show an appreciation of all serving service men and women and veterans.
During the Golden Assembly, the children were discussing the beautiful poppy tree and there was lots of excitement and giggles because we had 'REAL' soliders in the hall!
The children worked with a partner to plan,write and edit an Accrostic Poem.
Some of which will be on the British Values Display.
Harry wrote a beautiful poem using his neatest joined up handwriting.
Autumn Term 2
Remembrance Day 2018
We had a super day in Class 9 on Friday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of WW1. The children looked fantastic in their red, white and blue outfits. Many of them were also wearing their precious poppies, slapbands, bracelets etc. Thank you all very much for helping us to celebrate and raise money for such an important occassion.
It was all very exciting because we had some special actitives planned and of course our very special visitors, who were amazing. In class, we have been making poppies to decorate the garden and the front fence of our school. We wanted to share our achievements with the local people and support local veterans too.
Year 2 Wedding
We have had a fantastic afternoon celebrating the Year 2 Role Play Wedding. The children have learnt about the different roles of the bride and groom, bridesmaids, best man, parents, guests and of course Reverend Marion!
How beautiful the bridesmaids are! They were very helpful and able to help the bride with the flowers and her dress.
The Groom and the Best Man
The best man gave a super speech to all the guests and even managed NOT to lose the wedding rings. (which looked very yummy!)
Would Tinfoil be durable?
The children loved investigating this week. They were trying to find out which material would be the most suitable for making a cape for a superhero.
Is it waterproof?
It was lovely to see the children exploring the properties of a range of materials.
Does it flow in the wind?
Each group carried out their investigation in different ways.
Excellent scientifc vocabulary was used during the group discussions.
This term the children have been enjoying a selection of stories based on a range of Superheroes. They have been using 'Talk for Writing' techniques to learn the stories, draw text maps and then go on to innovate them. The results were fantastic!
The children worked together to retell the stories and learn the actions. Here are some of the children deep in discussion.
Once the children had learnt the original story they innovate (changed) elements and then created a new text map including their own ideas.
The Reading Den
Here are some of the boys enjoying each other's stories in the reading corner.
