This week in Class H we are designing and making safari vehicles in D&T. The children are working well in their partnerships, discussing their designs, listening to each other and supporting each other through each step of the process. Here are some photographs of the children's work so far. Watch this space for the results of all of their hard work!
Class H have enjoyed an exciting Science Week.
On Monday we discovered some huge eggs in the junior hall. Who could have laid them?
A dragon? A giant hen? A dinosaur?
We discovered the answer on Tuesday when Sophie the Tyrannosaurus-Rex visited our school.
We became Paleontologists for the day on Wednesday and learnt all about fossils. We discovered skulls, bones, teeth, horns, eggs and many more interesting and exciting fossils.
On Thursday we drew pictures of our favourite dinosaurs and the egg we think they would have hatched from. This will help us with our writing on Friday which will be all about dinosaurs.
World Book Week
What a wonderful world book week!
This week the children have taken part in some exciting activities to celebrate the 20th anniversary of World Book Day.
We enjoyed a teddy bear's picnic with our bear friends and our parents.
The children found lots of books during our scavenger hunt in the library.
Characters from a wide selection of books joined our World Book Day dressing up event.
Please enjoy the photographs from this fun-filled week both here and on Twitter.
The children and staff of Class H would like to wish all of our families a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
Thank you very much for all of the cards and gifts we have received. With best wishes from all of the staff in Class H.
We had great fun on Family Learning Day. Thank you to all of the parents who joined us and helped to make this such a special event.
The children demonstrated their sporting abilities, cooked some delicious pizzas and drew spaceships for the alien who crashed in our school grounds.
We created a toy timeline, comparing modern toys with toys from the past. We asked our grown ups to tell us which toys they liked to play with when they were children and used their ideas to help us to understand how toys have changed and developed over time. We discovered that some of the materials used to make toys have changed from wood and metal in the past to plastic today. We learnt that some toys have the same purpose today and in the past but they have been changed or improved in their design such as roller skates.
Welcome to Class H!
The children all look wonderful in their uniforms and we are working hard together to settle into the new routines of Year 1/2.
Swimming will take place every Wednesday so please make sure that your child has their kit with them.
P.E. takes place every Thursday, please ensure that your child's P.E. kit is in school. We will send their kits home at the end of each half term.
Thank you for your support.
There are lots of exciting events planned for the coming term to support the children's learning. These include a visit to the Pier Master's House at the Albert Dock to engage them in local history. The children will experience 'Wash Day' as it was in the past. They will also visit the Maritime and Liverpool Museums to get a taste of Liverpool life in the past. We will also be inviting you to join us in a Teddy Bear Picnic and the children will plan and prepare some picnic food for you and your Teddy Bear to enjoy. We will also be exploring toys and comparing toys from today with toys from the past and the children will be asking you for your help in finding out about the toys that you enjoyed playing with as a child.
Please take time to look at the images of the displays the children have worked to create and some of the wonderful map work they have undertaken to help them to find their way around our classroom.
