Welcome to Hawking Class!
Hawking Class have made a great start to the year! I've really enjoyed listening to what they got up to during the summer holidays and sharing what was inside their boxes.
Our topic this term (Autumn 2017) is the British Monarchy; more information about this can be found within the class letter. I'm certain that that the children will love this topic.
During this term, we have swimming on Wednesday afternoons, so please make sure that your children are sent with a towel, swimming costume and a hat.
We ask that PE kits are in all week, please.
This half term, we will be focusing on the value of respect; we will talk about this in class and during assemblies
Mrs Johnson, Mrs Godfrey and I have really enjoyed teaching your children so far and getting to know them. We look forward to having your children in our class and seeing them progress.
We've got some marvellous mathematicians in Hawking class. Every week we try to see how many addition and multiplication questions we can answer in 90 seconds. We all try really hard to answer as many questions that we know.
These children in particular have worked really hard and have beaten their last score - Scarlett also got a certificate but missed being in the photo.
I'm so pleased with everyone for their hard work and can do attitude. Keep it up and hopefully soon we will have everyone in the photo.
Start of Science Week
We had a really great start to Science Week! The first activity that the children did was try to build the most stable bridge using 5 pieces of paper and 20cm of sellotape. We looked at bridges like the Ironbridge and tried to use these structures to help us. Once we had built the bridges we tried to test them out to see if they were strong enough. (Thank you to Mrs Johnson for letting us borrow her meerkat). We then went outside onto the field to see the different creatures that could be living under our feet everyday. We used classification keys to identify the creatures and plants that we found.
The children really enjoyed the activities today and can't wait to see what it's store next week!
We've got some super readers in Hawking Class. These children have read every day since getting their reading diaries and bookmarks.
I'm really impressed with the enthusiasm to want to read by all the children and some already filling in their reading diaries answering some of the questions in their diaries left by Mrs Johnson and I!!
Lets keep up the amazing reading and see if we can all fill in our bookmarks and get those prizes at the end of the term!
The Adventures of Robin Hood
We have been learning all about Robin Hood's adventures. We've started looking at how Robin Hood became an outlaw and wanted to help the poor.
To help us remember the story we put actions to the sentences and drew our own story maps.
See if we can perform the actions to you and see how much we know.
Hawkings Class Bears Adventures
Not only have the children been getting used to a new class but they've also been getting used to two new class members. Lily and Harry (names chosen by the children) get to go home with two children on a Friday and come back to class on Wednesday and share all the adventures they've been getting up to during that week.
Imogen and Luke got to take them home in the first week and the whole class enjoyed hearing what they got up to.
Oscar and Jamie get to take them home this week, we can't wait to hear what they got up to!!
