Pine Catch up

21st September 2018

The children investigated the properties of materials this week in science. They tested for electrical conductivity, magnetism, flexibility; considered whether materials may be soluble or not and whether they may be good thermal conductors. They thoroughly enjoyed testing and considering and will go on to think about why objects are made from specific materials.

Elm Class were excited to begin learning British Sign Language as part of their reflected lessons. The children learnt to finger spell their names and discussed how they felt about their learning at the start and end of the lesson. We talked about what strategies we could use to keep improving.

This week Pine Class used the Rally Robin structure to share their homework research on Selby Abbey. Working in pairs, they ‘rallied’ their ideas back and forth, taking turns to explain each fact to their partner. The session resulted in a multitude of information being shared, along with photographs and even books! Many thanks for the support the children had in completing this work.

Last Week's Catch Up 6.7.18

Posted 11/7/2018

Congratulations to Venus Class! This week they completed the final school challenge in order to complete the Young    Leaders Award. All of the children worked incredibly hard to tidy up Mrs Hulme’s Peace Garden: weeding, lopping, cutting back, raking, composting, sweeping and supporting each other. We all had a marvellous afternoon transforming what had become a wilderness into a tidy usable outdoor space, but it was VERY hard work! The children had a great sense of achievement  and were rewarded for their efforts when they stood back and looked at what they had done. They only had one complaint and that was they would have liked to have had a whole day for the task! Parents, take advantage of your children’s enthusiasm for gardening: by setting them to work in the garden this weekend, put your feet up and enjoy the sun!

Venus Class welcomed several senior members of our village community into school this week for a ‘Stay and Read’ session. Both adults and children shared book preferences and they read to each other. A wonderful atmosphere for the love of reading soon became apparent as a buzz of all things books permeated through The Hub. One visitor kindly donated two books to the school (Goodnight Mr Tom and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) to further encourage the children in their reading for pleasure.

What is becoming an annual event occurred this week, when Venus Class welcomed senior members of our community into school for an Afternoon Tea. The children excelled themselves in terms of effort and behaviour; they were truly exceptional. They prepared traditional Afternoon Tea fayre, which was presented beautifully, and they transformed our school hall into hospitable tea rooms. In addition, they served their guests most attentively. A performance of William Blake’s ‘The Tyger’ by the children topped off the afternoon. In the words of one satisfied visitor, “It was better than Betty’s!” So proud of you Venus Class.

Venus Class thoroughly enjoyed being coached this week by Mr Miles. They completed   innovative warm up activities which helped them to prepare for their skills work and then their matches. It was impressive to see how much their racket control improved over the two days which resulted in far fewer balls being lost! They also acquired improved knowledge regarding the language of tennis using terms such as serve, volley and love!

Venus Class are taking advantage of the glorious weather by getting ready for Wimbledon!  The children enjoyed playing tennis this week, brushing up on their knowledge of the game and working on their hand-eye co-ordination.  After an individual skills activity, they teamed up to display their considerable ball control skills, which were most impressive.  They  are working on moving around the ball, using balance and footwork to ensure they get to return every ball. Venus are game for tennis!

On Thursday, Venus Class went on the visit of a lifetime to the Palace of Westminster, after being invited by our local MP, Mr Nigel Adams. We had an incredible day walking through St Stephen’s Hall, Central Lobby, House of Commons, House of Lords and, most importantly, Westminster Hall, where we walked in the footsteps of Henry VIII and Oliver Cromwell! This was followed by a Crown and Parliament workshop and a hour long question and answer session with Mr Adams. Venus Class were an absolute credit to themselves, their families and their school. Well done everyone!
