As part of Class 4’s treat, they have chosen to decorate a chocolate log to be shared with family and friends at home. Please may each child bring in £2.50 cash (not parent pay) by Tuesday 11th December to put towards the cost of the ingredients.
We will be decorating the logs on Tuesday 18th December, and therefore we ask for each child to bring in the following equipment on this day:
Bowl, spoon, plastic/ wooden mixing spoon, plate/ board to put the chocolate log on.
What do you think to our WW1 trenches? We designed our trenches taking ideas from the Internet, then we wrote our methods and then we had the best day making them!
Take a look at our fabulous Trench Cake we chose to make as part of our ‘Ready to Learn’ and ‘Class treat’. As part of our History topic ‘WW1′ we used our mathematical skills to weigh out the ingredients, and worked as part of a team to bake a trench cake.
We then had a WW1 tea party, eating our trench cake (yummy) and listening and singing along to war songs……’Pack up your troubles’
We took part in Huby’s memorial service on Friday 9th November to commemorate the fallen soldiers. We read aloud the poem we had written, and remembered the lives which were lost.
Below are pictures of our visit to Etz Synagogue in Leeds, where we learned about the Jewish faith.
Our topic is World War 1 where we have been learning all about how the war began and what it was like to live during that time. This term, our English topics are based around our history topic. Our most recent topic work was our fantastic newspaper article, reporting on a chosen key event.
In Science, we have been looking at Animals including Humans and learning in detail how our bodies work. Take a look at our lesson, learning all about our blood and the elements it contains. The pupil’s then wrote a scientific observation, which were excellent.
Our Maths focus has been on place value and the four operations throughout the first half term.
Below the children are using concrete resources in maths to support our learning with negative numbers.
As always, autumn term gets very busy, especially with the run up to our phenomenal Christmas play which will be revealed later on in the term but please remember that regular reading and learning those times tables and division facts is a important part of learning.
Our football and netball teams have been competing in our Cluster sporting events. Great sportsman ship, and some wonderful results! Well done Year 5 and 6.
We’ve been having great fun learning our new sport ‘judo’ over the first half term, and are now moving on to kick boxing! After our PE questionnaire, we came to the conclusion that children wanted to learn a new sport, and this is a sport which only very few people learn outside of school. Each week, all pupils at Huby look forward to their Martial Arts lesson. The two pictures below show children practising their grappling techniques!
We had a great morning at Crucial Crew, RAF Leeming- Something that we all found out was, that a child as young as 10 years old could be arrested!
