Well, what a half term we have had! We can’t believe we are already at the end of summer 1. You have worked incredibly hard this week and we have loved receiving your weekly projects of the life cycle of a butterfly. You have put lots of thought and effort into them.

Have a great half term!

Year One Thank you!

Year One Thank you!

Dear Year One Children, Parents and Carers,

We have come to the end of a very different Summer Half Term for us in school and for those of you at home. The children in Year One have been fantastic during these challenging times with their hard work and commitment to continuing with their learning at home. It has been great for us to see their smiling faces and to hear their voices when they have posted their completed tasks onto Seesaw. We would like to say a ‘HUGE THANK YOU’ to parents and carers who have supported you with your learning at home – we could not have done this without you!

We would like to wish you all a safe and enjoyable Half Term holiday and we are all looking forward to seeing you all soon. Stay Safe and Take care.

With best wishes,

Miss Bowtell    Miss Hollison   Mrs Jones

Dear Year One Children, Parents and Carers,

We have been so impressed and appreciative of the continued support that you are giving to your child’s Home Learning Tasks during these challenging times. The children are working so hard on their learning  in English, Mathematics and the Foundation subjects. In English this week, the children have produced a story board about ‘Mrs Armitage and the Big Wave’ and their work has been wonderful with carefully drawn pictures and writing. In previous weeks, we have also read the book ‘Flotsam’, which does not have any text, and the children had to use their imagination to think about what the story maybe about. They rose to the challenge and they produced such imaginative writing and drawing. During the mathematics tasks, we have been continuing to learn about 2D shapes and their properties. The children have produced careful work and they have used their knowledge to answer some challenging questions.

The work completed for the Foundation Subject Art Tasks has been amazing! The children have been learning about a range of artists including L.S. Lowry and Giuseppo Arcimboldo and the art work produced has been colourful, imaginative and creative! This week, the children have been learning about the Four Seasons and they have used a range of skills including collage, painting and drawing to show how a tree changes across all four seasons. It has been great to see the time and care that has been taken to produce this work. Well done everyone!

Thank you again for your support during this time.

Take care and Stay Safe and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

Best wishes, Miss Bowtell

Our Home Learning

Our Home Learning

It has been another great week of home learning in Year 2! We are incredibly proud of the efforts you are putting in and would like to thank everyone that has posted their thoughts, learning and ideas on Seesaw this week.

The children have spent the week exploring persuasive writing in English. They created some fantastic posters about how to stay healthy and happy. We were so impressed with the many wonderful ideas shared and their excellent illustrations! The children also created their own leaflets about HPS and included some super information and pictures! In maths we have been exploring time and how we measure time. The children have been exploring seconds, minutes and hours and have been carrying out some investigations around this. For our project work this week we have been thinking about how the trees and their leaves change during the four seasons. Our challenge was to get creative and use an art skill of our choice to show how the trees change. We have seen some truly stunning versions and representations and it is clear the children have thought carefully about each season and how to make their final piece!

We have had so much to be proud of this week and we look forward to seeing your posts each day. We miss you all and cannot wait until we can be back together. Until then, stay safe and keep smiling!

This is Me

This is Me

We have had so much to be proud of this week in Year Two and it has been a joy to see your home learning each day, we would like to thank you all!

This week you have been super busy thinking about your ‘this is me’ work, thinking about what makes you unique, your talents, your loves and your goals. We have been so impressed with the incredibly thoughtful and reflective responses you have given, you have really worked hard and demonstrated our HPS values of pride and resilience! These will now be collated ready to go on your end of year reports.

Keep smiling Year Two and we look forward to seeing your wonderful work and achievements on Seesaw.

We have been incredibly impressed with pride and effort you have been putting into your home learning over the past week.

This week in English we are going to be exploring different Greek Monsters with the aim of creating our own and writing a wanted poster for. The key skills you will be focusing on include, using prefixes, different sentence starters, descriptive language, use of subheadings and writing in clear paragraphs. We will continue to focus on time in maths and this week we will be working towards solving duration problems.

This week we are looking at a new set of 15 words from the Year 3 list. We will not be focusing on specific spelling rules this week but instead different spelling strategies we can use to help us remember the words spellings You will also l have a mixture of multiplication and division problems to solve daily.

This week in English you are creating your own Greek Monster! At the end of the week you will be creating a wanted poster to try and capture your Greek Monster. But, where are you going to keep it once you have captured it? Your project for this week is to design where you are going to keep your Greek Monster. You may wish to keep it in a Labyrinth like the Minotaur, a deserted island like Medusa or a cave like Cyclops (I have attached pictures for your reference). It is completely up to you. We would like for you to design and build your chosen home for your Greek Monster. You could make it out of cardboard, straws, string, paper, wood and so on… you could even build it out of Lego!

Good luck with this weeks home learning. Remember you can ask Miss Reeve or Miss Martin any questions.

Good morning Year 3,

This weeks project is really important because we would like everyone to create a self-portraits which will go onto the front cover of your end of Year 3 school report. Therefore we are expecting high-quality pieces of art. We would like everyone to try their hardest.

This week in English we will be looking at a new myth called Pandora’s Box. In Maths we are continuing with learning about time. This week we will be focusing on telling the time to the nearest minute, AM/ PM, and the 24 hour clock system. This week the spelling rule are are focusing on is words with the ay /eI/ sound spelt ei, eigh or ey. This week’s words are: veil, neighbour, eight, reign, they, obey, beige, sleigh, vein, weigh. 

We have left up the ‘This is Me’ written assignments for your reports in case you still need to complete the written activity for your reports.

VE Day

VE Day

Friday the 8th May 2020 saw the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Year 4 really got into the spirit of the day and completed a variety of activities from home linked to this important date in history. We were code breakers, using Morse code to crack hidden messages. We reflected on old photographs from the time and some of the words from Winston Churchill. We even designed our own VE Day celebrations!

A fantastic day of learning Year 4, well done!

Freddie’s Fundraising

Freddie’s Fundraising

This morning we were blown away to hear about the fabulous fundraising that Freddie had undertaken when he was inspired by Captain Tom Moore.

Freddie’s mum posted: Freddie has been in awe of Captain Tom Moore (like the rest of the nation). It inspired Freddie that he would like to help the NHS in his own way. On Sunday 3rd May, Freddie invited his friends to run/bike/walk or scoot 1 mile (obviously social distancing and in allowance of going out to exercise or to do it in their back gardens). The target was set at £100. Freddie and his friends raised a fabulous £465. Here is his video:

 

What a week in Year 6!

What a week in Year 6!

Home learning in year 6 has been very impressive this week! Pupils have shown determination, creativity and passion as they have worked.  Our focus has been algebra, inferred writing, and on the town of Huntingdon: its amazing impact on our lives and the lives of those before us.  Throughout the last few weeks pupils have explored the history of Huntingdon, becoming active members of Huntingdon society by investigating the present needs and make up of the town, and then finally looking into the future of our town.  

We have seen such pride and imagination in writing and projects, with some children really finding a passion for setting a scene.  In both English and the weekly projects, the children have been able to decipher and improve scenes from fantasy and reality.   

In maths, the children have started working with algebraic expressions and operations.  Each day, the pupils have challenges themselves to learn and apply key features of algebra, such as calculation, formulae and expression.  They ended the week completing a quiz based on the vocabulary and concepts they learned.  

The teachers and TAs of year 6 are so proud of the work handed in this week and it has been a struggle choosing the shout-outs each day due to the amazing work handed in.  Congratulations to Baker, Giuliano and Katie-Anne for Star of the Week!  They have been recognised for reliance, respect, and pride towards themselves, their work, and those around them.  It is a real pleasure seeing your work and ideas, though it is not the same as in person.  In keeping with the spirit of the anniversary of VE Day, we ask that you all take time to feel proud, happy, and cared for.  We are looking forward to seeing you all again!  In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.  

 

This is Me

This is Me

Another great week of home learning Year 6! We are incredibly proud of the efforts you are putting in and would like to thank everyone that has posted on SeeSaw this week. The children have spent this week considering what makes them special and unique. They have explored their talents, their loves and passions and their goals and aspirations for the future. We have seen such pride in these pieces of writing, and some children have gone above and beyond to uplevel their work to ensure it is their absolute best! These will now be collated ready to go on their end of year reports.

In maths, the children have been working out percentages while continuing to look at data. They ended the week by collecting their own data to present. The children have chosen to present their data as either bar charts, line graphs, pictograms or pie charts. Some interesting questions for their data collecting this week and some mathematically stunning presentations!

We have had so much to be proud of this week and there have been many shout outs for those children who have excelled each day! Today the children will find out who has won ‘Home Learning Star of the Week’ for standing out all week in their home learning. Check in on SeeSaw at 9.30 to see if it’s you!

We miss you all terribly, and cannot wait until we can be back together. Until then, stay safe and we look forward to seeing your brilliant work on SeeSaw!
