Class F2 & Y1C


Summer Term 2018

Welcome back!  

We will be starting the summer term exploring capacity and water. We will be learning all about: life cycles, growth, healthy eating and animals. The children will be participating in lots of exciting activities which will develop their understanding of ‘Knowledge and Understanding of the world’. They will be involved in taking care of Esio Trot, our school tortoise.

This term we will also be celebrating healthy living week, where the children will enjoy lots of active and outdoor activities including planting beans.

They will also be given the opportunity to take part in lots of exciting activities such as; baking, sewing, retelling stories in our outdoor woodland area and taking part in many creative activities all planned around the children's interests.

Our home school links continue to be extremely strong! All of our parents are working with their child on their set targets and providing us with information regarding their child's achievements regularly.

Our Whole School ‘In it To Win It’ challenge (previously '3 strikes for a bike') for the children who are reading at least if not more than 5 times a week and is recorded in their reading records by an adult, homework is handed in on a Thursday and have their PE Kit in school for our Tuesday afternoon PE session, those children will gain a raffle ticket each week they accomplished these for a chance to win a prize, so please keep reading and supporting your child at home.  

We have an open door policy, if you wish to speak to us about anything then please do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to leave a comment for us at the bottom our page, where it will be gratefully received, thank you.

Any support, access to books, the internet and trips out will greatly enhance your child’s learning experience and engagement in the topics.  All seven areas of learning will be covered using this term's themes and following the children’s interests.

The children came to school today and found the 'Evil Pea' had been in our school and taken all our fruit and vegetables.

A solution to this very upsetting news was the children's suggestion:

"We all make a SUPERTATO to try to protect our Fruit and Vegetables"

They spent some of our morning making their own Supertato and used speech bubbles for their SUPERTATO so the 'Evil Pea' would know how they all felt about him taking our fruit and vegetables.

They then placed a few around our school, Headteacher's office, School Office, KS2 fridge which holds their fruit and vegetables and our fruit and vegetable boxes in the Infant hall. The rest of the children placed theirs around our classroom 'just in case' 'Evil Pea' came back...

Our Visit to Scawthorpe Library

The children enjoyed their trip to our local Library, they found out about all the different kinds of books they could borrow. They had a look around the vast amount of books in the children's section, choosing one to take home and read. Finding out about the history of our local Library and when it was built, they enjoyed their experience, for some it was their first time.


'If children can be inspired at an early age by the excitement of finding knowledge and by works of the imagination, they are likely to benefit from these vital elements of personal development throughout their lives, both enriching themselves and enhancing their contribution to society'.

Turn taking is a vital factor in building positive relationships and social skills. Turn taking can be applied to many areas of development and does not only cover the sharing of toys.

Board games support children in taking turns and waiting for others. Simple games that require children to wait only a few minutes at a time are helpful in supporting children’s attention and listening.

 Our Children investigated water as a liquid and a solid and found that this experiment is reversible in our Science lesson.

They used salt, sugar, warm water and cold water to see which melted the ice the quickest.

Some children used frozen water, salt and watercolours to create a rainbow. Understanding that salt can cause crevices in the ice and painting on watercolours that ran through the block of ice where the salt had melted it.

We used coloured ice cubes and mixed together two colours and to try to predict what colour the two together would create.

How can we release ‘frozen toys’ from containers? The children used warm water and different tools to release the toy from their ice tombs to see which was the most effective.

As you can see, the children had lots of fun with this experiments
