Year 3 at Tatton Park

Yesterday we stepped back in time, we went back to 410 AD and learnt all about how the Anglo Saxons lived.
We braided wool, made bread and practiced going in to battle.
We had a fantastic day at Tatton Park and our Anglo Saxon friends really helped us to understand more about this time. It was a great end to the half term.

Fun in the Sun

Last week, year five made the most of the good weather and ventured up to the cricket field for their PE lesson. After a good warm up and a game of duck, duck, goose, they practised some football skills and played a few matches. They ended with a jog around the cricket field!

Planting Seeds in Year 1

Year 1 Summer 1

Welcome back to Summer 1 in Year 1.

This half term in Year 1 our topic is ‘The Enchanted Woodland’ and we will be learning:

Phonics – revising our new Phase 5 sounds and practising for the Phonics Screening check by reading real and alien words. We will also be learning to add the prefix ‘un’. We will be adding suffixes by using the spelling rule to add -s, -es to words and using –ing, –ed, –er and –est where no change is needed in the spelling of root words [for example, helping, helped, helper, eating, quicker, quickest].

English – Non-fiction – fact files and instructions

Maths – Multiplication and division. We will count in multiples of twos, fives and tens. We will be learning to solve one step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher.

Science – Plants and trees. We will be learning to identify and name a variety of common plants and deciduous and evergreen trees. We will discuss what plants and trees need to grow and describe the structure of common flowering plants, including trees.

DT/Art – Observational drawing using different media and materials.

RE – Judaism – Who is Jewish and what do they believe?

PE – (every Friday afternoon)

Dates for diary – Thursday 2nd May is our trip to Ledston Estate to support our topic in Science.

Another busy half term of new learning to look forward to. Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Darbyshire, Mrs Browne and Mrs Safianyk.

Year 2 visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park

As part of our topic on Africa Year 2 went to learn about and visit the wild animals at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. First, we had a lesson with Lucy, who was very knowledgable and informative. Did you know that an ostrich egg is the same as 26 chicken eggs? Or can you find out the difference between “poisonous” and “venomous”? After the lesson, we went to look at the animals. The weather was fine so we had our picnic outside and then on to see some more creatures. What a memorable day!

 

 

 

 

 

WORLD BOOK DAY !!!

At St. Pauls’s we celebrated World Book Day by everyone coming to school in their pyjamas or onesies. You also needed your favourite bedtime book and a cuddly toy. The response was brilliant. At the end of the day, which had focussed on reading and reading skills, we had a whole school assembly. Mrs. Smith read us a story and everyone had a part to play, from Reception class up to Year 6. Thank you to everyone for sharing your “love of reading”.
