'Where everyone matters and every day counts'

Welcome to Yellow Class!

Welcome to Yellow Class. You will be working with me, I'm Mrs. Canham your new class teacher. Mrs. Brown will work with us every day. Mrs. Duxbury, Mrs. Connell and Mrs. Hardingham will also be helping us.

 

Welcome to Block 2 

Our topic this term asks the question, ‘Did children always play with the same type of toys?” We will be having lots of fun exploring and linking our learning around a teaching block based on history. We are going to find out about toys in the past and comparing them to  the present day. We will research toys using a range of sources including, the internet, books and interviewing our relatives to find out about the toys they enjoyed playing with when they were younger. We will be looking at toys during different periods in history and creating timelines.

In science we will be looking at materials and relating this to toys through various investigations, deciding which material has the best properties needed, for example which material is the best to keep a Teddy dry in the rain?

In P.E. we will have fun playing some of the game’s children played a long time ago and comparing them to the games we play today. P.E is on Tuesday and Thursday. You can leave your P.E. bag on your peg until the holidays so it is always ready.

Forest School

When we have Forest Schools  you will need suitable clothing and footwear (Wellington boots or outdoor shoes, hats, gloves, and scarf especially as the weather is getting colder) that you do not mind getting dirty.  On the day of our session will need come to school wearing your Forest School clothing and bring your school uniform and school shoes to change into, in a labelled bag. Our Forest School Day is on an alternate Thursdays starting on the 20th of January.
