Hawthorn Class

Mrs Marriott's Y1/Y2 class


We all had a great time decorating our trees in the morning then,

in the afternoon,  we sang with Mrs Essex's class and switched the lights on.

We enjoyed the Christingle service at St Mary's Church.

The speakers all said their words wonderfully and we all sang beautifully.

On Children in Need we visited the fire station to see how fire fighting has changed since the Great Fire of London. The week after we took our model houses and set fire to the Bakery and watched as the fire spread.

Thanks to Karl for making sure it was safe.

We all enjoyed Children in Need Day.

We enjoyed trying to cover Pudsey with our coins then decorating cakes for our cake sale.

Mrs Blenkinsop's class and our class went to the Memorial Square to lay our poppy cross for Remembrance Day. We read some poems then had a minute's silence

We all had a great day on our trip to Arkwright's Mill in Cromford.

We learnt about what it was like to be a child working at the mill, about Richard Arkwright and enjoyed our duck hunt looking for Arkwright the Duck.

We have all been involved with gardening around school. Hopefully the Autumn pansies will be colourful all Winter and we can't wait to see the bulbs in the Spring.

We were very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Watson. She had a treat sitting down to eat her lunch with the children instead of serving it to them.

We enjoyed our walk around Wirksworth. We looked at different buildings and how they have changed over the years.

We have started our new topic, Where We Live, by drawing buildings we have seen around Wirksworth,

We drew our houses, St Mary's church, our school, Top Ken's and the fish and chip shop.

We have enjoyed lots of Maths activities to start the new year

We have been enjoying doing maths in an active way outside in the sunshine.

We have found the missing numbers finding different clues and we spotted missing numbers in the ladders.

We also won lots of pirate's gold solving maths word problems.

We all loved learning how to maypole dance with Mrs Butler.

We learnt our dance well for the school show.
