30.11.16 - Bugtopia!

What a fantastic, educational visit years one and two enjoyed from Bugtopia. Ben arrived with a selection of intriguing tanks and cases, and set up in our hall ready for a day of excited HCPS pupils!

Ben explained to us about the meaning of some tricky scientific words, such as invertebrates, arachnids and exoskeleton. The first creature we were introduced to was a Madagascan Hissing Cockroach. We discovered that the cockroach only hisses when it is frightened to try and trick its predators that it is a snake!

The second creature we met was a Giant African Millipede. Strangely, it wasn’t waiting in one of the cages, but keeping warm in Ben’s pocket! Ben told us that the name means 1000 (milli) feet (pede), but that they don’t really have 1000 feet, the maximum they have is about 700 but most have about 250.

We then had the opportunity to meet a scorpion. We discovered that scorpions with larger pincers and thinner tails use their pincers to attack, and scorpions with thinner pincers and larger tails use their tails to attack. Fortunately, we met a friendly scorpion today!

Finally, the part we had all been waiting for…the tarantula! Lots of the children, and even some of the staff, were brave enough to handle it. We learnt how different spiders catch and kill their prey in different ways.

We hope that the children have come home as excited and full of stories as the staff all have. Thank you for supporting this special day for them.

Autumn Term in 1LW



2MT are turning into Magnificent Mathematicians!

2MT have been exploring 'beachy' adjectives

2KB - Using adjectives to write noun phrases about the beach!

2KB Maths - we've been busy learning our number bonds to 10, 20 and 100!

What a wonderful walk!  Years one and two paired up this week to explore Hornsea and find out more about the places we have been learning about during our Hop in to Hornsea topic. We were so impressed with both the children's behaviour and their knowledge of Hornsea - well done years one and two! Since the trip, the children have been talking and working enthusiastically about the things they saw, and have produced some fantastic work. 

2KB Maths - we've been exploring the place value of numbers, including how numbers are made of tens and ones, number sequences, ordering numbers, greater than, less than and equals signs, and a lot of problem solving!

2KB Roald Dahl Day 13th September 2016 - What fabulous costumes!


What a fantastic start to our new school year! The children have settled in to their new classes quickly and are all working hard. 

We started our new topic with a fascinating hook day, looking at our school and some of our favourite places to visit in Hornsea. Thank you for the super homework which was collected/put together over the holidays, it really helps bring our topic to life and the children love to share their experiences. As part of our topic, we have been practising our map skills using maps of the school and the local area. During the first week we enjoyed our first maths mission day of the year focusing on position and direction: we practised whole, half and quarter turns; used maps to find clues around our playground; programmed BeeBots to move around an area; and gave each other directions using the terms 'clockwise' and 'anticlockwise'.

During our half term's topic we will be thinking about a different part of Hornsea each week, including Bettison's Folly, The Mere, the beach, the park and Hornsea Freeport. We will also be going for a walk around Hornsea to look at all the places we have been learning about.

Where possible, our English lessons will be linked to our topic. However, these will also include all the skills we need to learn to develop our writing.

Please do let us know if you think you can help at all with our topic in some way, or if you have any comments or concerns about any other aspect of school life. Thank you.

In 2JR, as an introduction to our topic, we had a whole day doing different activities to do with minibeasts. We talked about what we would like to learn about, decorated biscuits with minibeasts, made symmetrical minibeast paintings, read minibeast stories and information books and made minibeasts from coloured card, pipe cleaners and anything else we could find! We had a great day and can't wait to get stuck into this term's topic.

They have looked at maps and atlases; studied the points on a compass; found out lots of information about being a pirate; and had a fantastic trip to The Deep!

As usual we have been working hard this half term and have enjoyed taking part in a wide range of exciting activities. Our class were particularly enthusiastic about our English work in which we learnt about the well-known author, Julia Donaldson. We loved reading lots of her stories and comparing the differences and similarities between them. Thank you to the many children who brought their Julia Donaldson books into school to share with our class. Which is your favourite and why?
