Yellow

Welcome to Yellow Class

Our teachers are Mrs Crawshaw (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Axton (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).  We also have Mrs McCarthy, Mrs Henry and Mrs Horwood helping us in our classroom.   We are really looking forward to a year full of fun and learning.

 

Our topic this term is Life on the Ocean Waves.  We will be reading the story of The Night Pirates and learning all about pirates and the sea.  We may  even have some special pirate visitors...  

 

 

 

 

We have been using some maths games to help secure our maths skills.   These games can be found at  www.ictgames.com if your child would like to play them at home. The children have particularly enjoyed playing Counting Caterpillar, Save the Whale and Fact Fighter.  

We have been helping Mr Grinling rescue his picnic lunch from the ice. We had to think of the quickest way to melt the ice so he didn't miss his lunch!

We had a lovely time at Lowerstock Farm. We enjoyed spending time with the cows and learning all about the different types of trees. We also had great fun playing in the woods. Thank you to the parent helpers who came along with us.

WOW! What a Pirate WOW Day! Captain Whitebeard came to visit us and told us a wonderful story about how he lost his pirate ship and treasure. In the afternoon, we enjoyed lots of pirate activities. A huge thank you to the PTFA and parents who helped to make our day so much fun.

We had so much fun learning a Pirate Dance with Ms Rees from Churchill Academy.

A big thank you to our PTFA for kindly donating all our wonderful new books. We love them!

We really enjoyed our Science Day. We were thinking about journeys and learnt about the solar system in our Science Workshop. Then we learnt about the journey of a bee. We made posters about saving our bees and did a "waggle dance" before becoming bees and flowers to show the important job the bee does by pollinating our plants.

We are so excited. We have grown baby plants.

We have grown roots and shoots - it is very exciting!

We are reading the story of Oliver's Vegetables. Mrs McCarthy has been helping us plant some seeds and we are looking forward to creating our own vegetable garden. We have been looking at seeds and we are carefully watching the germination of our beans.

Red Nose Day fun.

We have really enjoyed celebrating World Book Day with all our Julia Donaldson books and characters.

We have been learning about Vincent Van Gogh. We are creating our own Class version of The Sunflowers. We have been experimenting with shape, colour and lines. It is taking some time but we think the finished masterpiece will be fantastic!

In PE we have been developing our balancing and control. We all managed to hold our balances very still.

In science we are learning about plants. We looked carefully at daffodils and identified the different parts. We then labelled the parts of the daffodil.

We have have been learning to sing the Swahili Jambo song.

A wonderful sound!

We have had a very special visitor in Yellow Class.

We loved the Pantomine - Cinderella. It was very funny.

We have written and illustrated our own fairy tale books.

We also met some African pigmy hedgehogs.
