Year 3’s Trip to Saltaire.

This week Year 3 went on a fantastic trip to Saltaire that I was very sad to miss!

However they have told me lots about what they did and found out.

They enjoyed looking at David Hockney’s art work –  his current display is on the arrival of spring.

They also had a historic walk around Saltaire and found out lots of facts about Titus Salt and the local area.

A huge thank you to, Mrs Cook, Mrs Lupton, Mrs Barraclough, Mrs Safianyk and Mrs Broadbent for taking the children on the trip in my absence!

Spreading the LOVE!

In preparation for Valentine’s day next week Reception have been thinking about special people in their lives and people they love. They have made Valentine’s cards to send to their loved ones and biscuits to give to people that are special to them.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love from Reception <3

Year 3’s Wibsey Walk!

This week in Year 3 we went on a walk around Wibsey, to find out about its past.

We learnt lots of interesting things such as:

A horse fair came to Wibsey every year on the 5th of October. We even saw where it came to, on Fair Rd.

The White Swan used to be a courtroom and they used to send people to jail for petty crimes.

There used to be a tiny school on School lane where only 6 people went to school.

The Co op used to be a Cosy Cinema, it opened on the 15th May 1930 and the first ever film showed there was called ‘The last of Mrs Cheyney’.

There was lots of buildings around Wibsey with different dates on, we think this is when they were built!

We also walked down a very historic part of Wibsey – Smithy Hill. The oldest house in Wibsey is believed to be on here and was built in 1626.

We have had a great time looking at Wibsey and wandering around the old streets admiring how the houses have changed!

Did you know that Wibsey used to have a trolley bus that ran down the High St?

Year 2 – Spring 1

Here we are in 2018 and this is what the children will be doing in Year 2.

English – Jack and the Beanstalk, Winter poetry and information writing.

Topic – Completing “The Great Fire of London” history topic.

Science – Plants

Please read with your child as often as possible and question them about their book. This will help them to develop their understanding and widen their vocabulary.

Thank you for all your continued support.

Year 3 : Spring 1

This half term in Year 3 we are looking at : Our Local Area

We plan on going out on lots of local walks to discover how Wibsey has changed in the last 100 years.

In History we will be looking at how Wibsey has changed, how jobs have changed and the difference between now and then.

In Geography we are looking at our local area and using maps to get around.

In Art we are looking at David Hockney and his famous painting of Salts Mill. Keep your eyes peeled for our versions and attempts at painting St Paul’s Church in the style of David Hockney.

In English we are writing our own fairy tales and later in the half term we will be creating leaflets about Wibsey with an interesting fact or two!

In Science we are looking at animals and humans and what they need to survive including food, nutrients, skeletons and muscles.

In Maths we are learning how to do use different measurements and tell the time. Help us by asking us to read the time to you!

Christmas in Reception!

The children in Reception have had a very busy Christmas week. We thought you would like to see all the fun Christmas activities we have been doing.

On Monday we had our Christmas dinner, with the rest of Key Stage 1, in the hall. It was very yummy … especially the pudding!

On Wednesday we had our class Christmas party. We played lots of party games, ate lots of food and even had a Christmas boogie.

On Thursday, we performed our Nativity for all our family and friends. We were a bit nervous but we still enjoyed performing for everyone.   

St.Paul’s Community Carol Service 4.12.17

On 4th December, various members of the community were invited to join our carol service and listen to some Christmas carols with a mince pie. All the children sang beautifully and  everyone enjoyed it. Well done to Mr Collier, Mrs Barraclough and all those who helped.

Manchester Airport

Last week, year five visited Manchester Airport to enhance our topic of flight! Everyone had a great day as we were shown around by two fantastic hosts – Neil and Elaine. There are some photos from our day below. I will be choosing our best recount of the trip and posting it on the blog within the next few days!
