Mrs Pearce (1/2 Blue)

Welcome to our class page, here you will find out all about the great things we have been getting up to.


Friday 17th April: Welcome back everyone. I'm glad to hear you all had a chocolate-filled Easter break. We are one week into our new PLOD - Picture Books and Paintings and already we are Anthony Browne experts. If you get time, why not head to the library and search for one of his books.


Thank you to Amelia and Kian who (along with Mrs Long) helped plant up our vegetable bed in the school allotment area - we musn't forget it is our responsibility to water the crops on Wednesdays!


Have a go at some of these online games. We looked at them on Monday as an introduction to this half term's ICT topic Data Handling.


Have a lovely weekend smiley

Thursday 5th March: Weight

Click on the links below to have another go at the weight websites we enjoyed using this week.

Friday 27th February:

Welcome back everyone - Where does the time go? A special welcome to Daniel who has joined us from Wiggington and a BIG thankyou to everyone for helping him settle in so quickly.


Please find some time to look at and discuss your child's new reading and numeracy targets; these can be found in the front of the red reading records as usual. Information regarding parents' evening appointments will be coming out shortly and I look forward to sharing with you how well your child is progressing. Can you believe we are now officially just over half way through the academic year!


Please check out our updated PLOD page and of course keep practising your multiplication 'speed grids'.

Friday 30th January: Our Visit to Haxby Village

We were exhausted by the time we got back but we all had a great time.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Haxby we go!

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Haxby we go! 1

Friday 23rd January: 'Number Splat'

We enjoyed using this game in Numeracy today. Can you beat 2 seconds?


Thursday 15th January: Speed Grids

Get practising your 10 more/10 less skills in an attempt to improve your score next Monday (and each Monday thereafter). Don't forget you can practise anywhere: on the way home from school, in the bath, whilst eating breakfast the options are endless. All you need is someone to give you a number and check you have got the correct answer. The more you practise, the higher your score is likely to be! Will you be the first one to take home a certificate for the most improved pupil?

Friday 19th December: Christmas Stories with Year Five and Six

The children in Mr Bromley's class did an excellent job of getting us in the mood for Christmas. Their story reading skills were brilliant and had us all captivated.

Thursday 16th December: Santa Sequencing

We had a jolly old time trying to find out how many ways Santa could pack his sleigh. Those of us who worked methodically, managed to find all 24 combinations when sequencing four different colour presents - HO, HO, HO!

Friday 5th December: Forest School Fun

What a day ... not only did we get to meet Father Christmas (it must have been all that hard work) but we got to spend the morning in our Forest School Area. Mr Mulholland talked to us about the plants in the wood that were safe to eat and those that were not and Mrs Pearce had us running around looking for fire wood. 'Nettle tea anyone?'

Wednesday 26th November: Text Detectives

This week we are looking at instructional texts. Both the Yellow and Purple groups got busy sorting out a 'muddled' set of instructions, labelling the features they used to help them. Good job everyone!

Friday 21st November: On behalf of 1/2 Blue, I would like to wish Nynesha and her family all the best in their big move. Make sure you keep in touch Nynesha; we would love to hear about your new school and all of your new friends.

Friday 14th November: Number Bonds to 10

The focus for your new speed grids will be number bonds. Have a go at rescuing the aliens in this bonds to 10 game.

Thursday 13th November: Body Parts

We had great fun drawing around our bodies.

Friday 7th November: statement, command, question or exclamation?

We looked at this online game earlier in the week. Why not have a go at designing and building your own club house?

WELCOME BACK everyone. I hope you had a great half term. This term we are lucky enough to be joined by Miss Cattley. She will be teaching alongside me for some of this term and will return for a further five weeks after Christmas.


Already we are well underway with our Marvellous Me topic. On Friday we will be revealing who has made it into the 2014  Guinness Book of 'Headlands' Records. Who will hold the record for the widest hand span? Who will have the longest foot? Who is the shortest person in the class? Who will hold the record for the narrowest waist?



Monday 20th October: The National Railway Museum

We had a fantastic time at the museum. Thank you for being so brilliantly behaved; it was a pleasure to see all of you remembering your manners and showing what true superstars you really are! A special thank you to all of the adults that came along to help, we couldn't have gone without you.

Friday 17th October: One Week to Go!

I can't believe we have been in school for seven weeks already. We have had a really busy half term but what a fine way to end it ... with a school visit to the National Railway Museum. See if you can find the time to visit the NRM website this weekend, it's a HUGE building with so much to see. Don't forget to get a good nights sleep on Sunday and have a big breakfast on Monday morning because we won't be eating lunch until 12:45pm - bacon and eggs anyone?

Monday 13th October: What's Next?

At some point in the next couple of weeks I will be asking you what you would like to learn about after half term so get your thinking caps on!

Thursday 2nd October: Design and Technology

We spent a fun-filled two days, researching, investigating, designing, making and evaluating our sailing boats. A big well done to everyone, although an extra pat on the back must go to 'Captain' Oliver Sadler as his sail design was particularly effective.

Thursday 25th September: School Council Representatives
