Year 2 enjoyed an awe and wonder science lesson this week. We completed a paper towel colour mixing experiment linked to our previous learning on materials. The children had 2 cups, food colouring, paper towels and water. They made a tube out of the kitchen roll and bent it in half and dipped one end into each cup containing different primary food colours. The children discovered that the kitchen roll is absorbent and found it exciting to see the water and colour travel. The colours mixed when they joined together, red and blue made purple.



Week beginning 26.06.23


Year 1 enjoyed a really fun science lesson this week. We are working on scientific enquiry and completing some investigations this term.

Visit to the Postmill

On Thursday 3rd November we visited Wrawby Postmill. Our visit was part of our new history topic, How has Wrawby changed? We met some lovely volunteers, who maintain and upkeep the Postmill and listened really carefully about the history of the mill. It was built over 300 years ago and we were fascinated when we looked around. It has inspired us for our learning about Wrawby. 




This week (Monday 14th October) has been another busy one in class 2! We have been continuing our work on animals in science. Year 2 have been learning about omnivores, carnivores and herbivores. Meanwhile Year 1 have been categorising animals and learning about mammals, birds, reptiles fish and amphibians. 


We have written recounts of out trip to The Deep and continued our work on addition in maths. Year 1 have been learning number bonds to ten. We need to know these by heart. Year 2 have worked on adding three numbers and moved onto adding two, two digit numbers. We have used number lines to support us with this. 


We have finished our work on sketching skills. Look at some of our wonderful work. 




We hope you have a wonderful half term. See you on the 31st October!

Year 1 have been continuing to word on part whole models to combine two numbers creating a total. We have also learnt the equals symbol by making it with cubes. 


In maths we are working on addition. Year 2 were looking at related facts. For example if I know 8 + 2= 10 then I know 80 + 20 = 100. We played a great game with our friends hunting for facts. 

We continued being map detectives in Geography. We hunted for symbols that represent human and physical features around Wrawby. We worked well in in mixed year group partners. We also learnt about compass directions. We looked for things on the map that were north and south of our school. What did we find?


This week is 'Children's Mental Health Week'. (Week commencing Monday 10th October)

This year the theme is 'Let's Connect'. Children were given the opportunity to connect with children in their house colour and siblings from different year groups.

The school took part in a range of activities which included mindful colouring, making stress balls, yoga, puzzles, nature walk and listening to relaxing music. 

Wednesday 5th October was an exciting day in Class 2. A great day was had by all on our first school trip to the Deep in Hull.


 October Highlights

The children took part in a cross-country race this morning (Mon 3rd Oct). It was great to see the children all cheering on their friends and trying really hard to finish the course. Further photos are available in the gallery. 


Who has the biggest feet in Year 1? 



We had a fun Science lesson in Year 1. We investigated if the tallest person had the largest hands and feet. We worked together to draw around and measure our hands and feet. We were wrong the tallest person did not have the biggest feet!

In maths we have been exploring numbers. We have been counting, reading and writing them. It is important that we write them correctly. 

Year 1 have been representing numbers to 20. 


Year 2 have been representing numbers to 100. We have been explaining what each digit represents and using manipulatives to model the numbers. 


Year 1 have been on a senses walk this week around the school grounds. We used our senses of smell, touch, sight and hearing to explore. Autumn is a great time for a senses walk. If you are out and about at the weekend what can you explore using your senses? 



Year 2 have taken their learning in Science outside as well. We had a minibeast hunt around the school grounds. I wonder how many minibeasts you can find in your garden? 


September 2022 Highlights


Our Geography topic has been really exciting! We have been map detectives this week. We used Google Earth and Digimaps to locate Wrawby and Brigg. We looked carefully at the aerial views and maps to locate some landmarks, like our school, church, home and windmill. We worked so well supporting each other to find these places. 

We are working really hard on our handwriting. We need to use joined writing and the RWInc. rhymes for letter formation help us to form our letters correctly.
