PE – Castles and Cannonballs in 1,2B

Posted on Sunday 08 September 2024 by Mrs Latham

We really enjoyed our first PE lesson on Friday. We are learning a new game – Castles and Cannonballs. We enjoyed building castles using all sorts of equipment and then throwing balls at them to knock them down. We are going to change and adapt the game over this half term; adding different rules, using different equipment and using different parts of our body.

Our First Week In 1A

Posted on Friday 06 September 2024 by Mrs Wilkins

1A have shown amazing resilience by settling into the routines of a Year 1 classroom. Everyone is ready to listen, take part, follow instructions and take care of each other. We are incredibly proud of them!

In Maths, we have focused on number formation and place value.

Our PE lesson was in glorious sunshine. We have begun our new KS1 game ‘Castles and Canon Balls.’

Please look in your child’s book bag. We have sent a lot of new passwords and information home that are very important home tools to support your child’s learning.

First week of 2C

Posted on Friday 06 September 2024 by Miss Young

We have had a fantastic first week back at school. The new Year 2 children are settling very well into their new classroom. All of the children have been extremely resilient and ready to learn. Here are a few things we have been getting up to this week.

In Maths we have been recapping numbers up to 20. We have been counting forwards and backwards 1-20. We also ordered numbers in table groups by looking at the value of each number.

In phonics lessons we have been recapping letters of the alphabet and letter formation. We have also been recapping some of our sounds and ‘tricky words’ ready to begin our Little Wandle phonics lessons from next week.

The children have spent some time this week, practising saying and writing the days of the week. In Year 2, we write the ‘long date’ in our books each day. This activity is helping children to remember their spelling as well as remembering that days of the week and months of the year need a capital letter.

In PE we have been playing games that will help us to work as a team. This half term we will be working on developing skills such as spacial awareness, throwing and kicking.

It has been a pleasure to get to know the children this week. It’s going to be a brilliant year!

Beach party fun

Posted on Friday 19 July 2024 by Miss Young

We had a fantastic time at the beach party yesterday. We were very lucky with the weather. Thank you to my fantastic class for a wonderful year. Enjoy some photographs from yesterday.

Summer disco

Posted on Sunday 14 July 2024 by Mrs Latham

Everyone had a great time at the disco on Friday – hopefully raising lots of funds for FOSP (Friends of Scholes Primary). They are always looking for new members to help (in a small or big way). Contact the school office if you’d like to join.

We were too busy doing the conga to take photos during the disco but managed to get a couple at the end (sweets and drinks are the favourite part, anyway).
