Welcome to our class page. Both Mr Mulholland and myself are very much looking forward to getting the term off to a 'cracking' start.
Just so you know ... Mr Mulholland will be teaching you on a Monday and Friday afternoon this year; he will also register and see you home on Wednesday afternoons too. I will be with you for the rest of the week.
Day One: Ready and Raring to Go!
Congratulations and Celebrations
Well done to Joshua in Year One and Evie in Year Two for being democratically elected as our school council representatives. A big thank you to everyone who gave sterling speeches but who were unfortunately unsuccessful on this occasion.
Also a BIG well done to this half term's peer mentors: Isabelle, Bobbie, Oliver M, Jack, Charlie W, Esther, Charlie H, Thomas, Finton and Arlo. Wear your badges with pride and remember to show everyone in our class and school why you have been chosen.
What a busy Autumn Term we've had. So far, we've ...
...dressed up as super heroes,
... taken part in a drama workshop,
... been on a material hunt and
... made super super hero characters of our very own!
Real Life Superheroes
To complete our 'Superhero' topic we were lucky enough to hear from two, real-life superheroes. We learnt a lot but our favourite fact was that nurses are only allowed to write in black pen whilst on duty!
Well done to our new 'Autumn Two' peer mentors and thank you to our 'Autumn One' children for doing such a stirling job! This half term our role models to look out for are Sonny, Vismaya, Megan, Peggy, Ella, Evie, Joshua, Charlie, Thomas S and Oliver M - wear your badges with pride!
Spotting Signs of Autumn
We have been out and about in the school grounds looking for signs of Autumn.
We each collected one item and popped it in our Autumn jar.
Our first hand investigations along with our research within the classroom has helped us to write Autumn themed Non-Chronological Reports - we are now oficially Autumnal Experts!
Toys, Toys, Toys
To kick start our new topic we spent some of the afternoon trying out different types of toys. Sometimes we played on our own, sometimes we played with others but however we chose to play ... we had fun!
Health and Fitness Fun
York City Football Club came in to talk to us about keeping fit and healthy. They kindly gave us all a pedometer so now we have no excuse!
Abbey House Museum
We had a brilliant time in Leeds today. The children enjoyed learning about Christmas traditions from the past, making a Father Christmas themed pop up toy and taking part in a workshop where they explored first-hand, old and new toys. The children had a great time and were a credit to the school. Thank you to all the parents who gave up their day to come along and lend a hand - we couldn't have gone without them.
