Being The Best We Can Be

Owls Yrs 1 & 2

EASTER HOLIDAY BINGO!

We have all been blown-away by the amazing work the children have produced the past 2 weeks. We would like to say a big thank you to all the children and parents/carers for working with us to keep our Hauxton Primary School community learning.  

For over the Easter holidays, we have created a whole school reading and creativity bingo for the children. This is not compulsory but may help keep the boredom at bay. The idea is that they pick a row or column on the bingo boards and have a go at crossing off each activity. Each activity crosses off that one square and they will have achieved bingo when they make it all the way across, down or up.

We would love for you to continue sending us their bingo activities and we will put up the fantastic creations and book choices on the website.

We hope they enjoy the activities and that all of our Hauxton Primary community have a relaxed, positive Easter break.

We look forward to speaking to you soon.

From everyone at Hauxton Primary School – Happy Easter! J

Friday 3rd April

Feels strange to wish you all a happy Easter holiday but we hope that you all have as a relaxing time as possible and that sunny days make us all smile!

There will be some Easter holiday activity bingo games uploaded to the Owls' class page. These are not something you have to do but have some good suggestions of activities that can be done at home to try to keep boredom at bay...I know, like Mr. Stewart, a lot of you won't be 'on holiday' so please don't feel any pressure to complete them! I have also uploaded quite a few MyMaths homework activities. Again, you do not have to do them but they are there.

Thank you all so much for the amazing work the children have done. They are all truly missed and we hope that we are all back together very soon.

Hello Owls,

I hope you have had a good week and are getting used to the home learning. We are adjusting to it but it does feel very strange at times! 

I am looking forward to seeing all your incredible work this week. 
Keep smiling and stay happy!

Good morning, Owls!

I hope that you have had a good week. It does all feel very strange to not be at school but I know you will all be working so hard, staying positive and happy.

Hope you enjoy the activities and please let me know if you have any questions. You can either submit the work in one go or  individually.

PS I will be keeping a tally of who returns all their work on time each day and adding it to the Ocean Points! 

 

Dear Owls,

I am sure you are all just as sad as we are that you won't be at school.

You will find on our class page your daily learning activities and extra things you can do at home. There will also be videos to explain things and George, the rabbit, might even say hello!

It won't be the same as the time we have in class but we know that you will all work very hard, stay positive, stay happy and remember your capital letters and full stops! 

Although we won't be able to see you, we will be with you remotely and can answer any questions you have via the class email -OwlsHomework@hauxton.cambs.sch.uk 

Thank you to all your mums and dads for helping you and us with all your work - you are stars!

We will miss you, our little Owls.

World Book Day

World Book Day 1

Wednesday 26th February 2020

Welcome back! Hope you all had a lovely half-term.

We will continue our topic of Earth and Space, which we are absolutely enthralled with. We are looking forward to studying the works of Chesley Bonestell and learning about Neil Armstrong.

We will also continue our reading and writing based on the book Olga da Polga.

In Maths, Year 1 are revising Place Value and Year 2 are data analysing! I wonder what our favourite fruit will be?!

 

Thursday 23rd January

In our poetry unit children created fabulous paintings, dances and descriptive list poems inspired by some of the poems we have read.

In Maths children have been using positional vocabulary, above, below, in between, left, right, clockwise anti-clockwise, quarter turns, half turns, three quarter turns and full turns to describe direction and position.

In Topic, Owls have been researching continents to make their own little continent book. 

To celebrate Burns Night, we had a wee go at some Scottish country dancing too!

Welcome back and a very Happy New Year!

We have had a busy week so far. We started our new Maths topic which is Geometry, where we are learning about 2D and 3D shapes, position and movement. Can you practise your quarter/right angled turns at home? It is very tricky to get right!

We are really enjoying learning about lots of different types of poetry with Michael Rosen being a firm favourite!

Thank you everyone who has brought in Learning Log homework so far - lots of excitement about our new topic, which is Earth and Space.

 

 

Merry Christmas!

Hope you all have a wonderful festive season!

Friday 13th December

The children have been enjoying our text -The man on the moon. They invented space products to sell at their souvenirs shop, they have also designed posters to advertise trips to moon and they have met and described many different aliens.

In Maths year 1 are still solving addition and subtraction problems. Year 2 are looking at multiplication and division using arrays.

In topic Owls have used atlases to identify the different continents and oceans. They have also leant about Christopher Columbus and wrote a biography.

Friday 22nd November 2019

Time is whizzing past and we have just finished our work on the book 'I Want My Hat Back', which culminated in us producing our own little books. They are proudly displayed in the classroom.

We have now started reading "Man on the Moon' and have all had a pleasant visit to the moon. We used lots of descriptive language to describe what we were seeing, touching, smelling and feeling. 

In Maths, we are continuing to solve addition problems in Year 1 and in Year 2 we have moved onto multiplication and division of 2x, 5x and 10x tables. Hit the Button, which can be found online, is a super game to support learning of times tables.

The Nativity has been selected so get ready to get in the Christmas spirit...

 

Trip to the Moon!

Thursday 14th November

In English we designed our own hats inspired by our text 'I want my hat back'. We have made our hats and left them out for display. Unfortunately one of the hats disappeared and we had to write a police report.

In Maths we have been solving addition and subtraction problems. Year 2 is moving on to multiplication and division.

Police reports about the missing hat!

Look at our amazing hats!

Friday 1st November

What a busy start to the second half of this term we have had.

We have carried out some drama based on the book 'I Want my Hat Back' and have also been looking at the different personalities of the characters in the book.

In Maths, we are continuing to work on addition and subtraction and using these strategies to help with problems solving.

We have started a block of Science work looking at humans and animals. Today we learned about the digestive system and produced our own mini digestive systems!

Friday 18th October

We are at the end of a lovely half term. Owls enjoyed doing lots of drama work linked to our new text ' I want my hat'. They showed great improvisation and we enjoyed their imaginative stories. They have also written a news paper report about the mysteriously lost hat.

In Maths we are still adding and subtracting. Please keep practising your number bonds to 10 (yr1) and 20 (yr2). When you feel secure with these challenge yourself with number bonds to 50 and a 100!

In Topic we made a delicious sweet potato and coconut soup!

Friday 4th October 

What a busy few weeks we have had. We are moving onto addition and subtraction in maths, so please continue practising your number bonds to 10 for Year 1 and to 20 for Year 2.

In English, we are coming to the end of our work on Rapunzel and have written some superb diary entries, potions and wanted posters.

We had a fabulous time with Those History People and have finished our Great Fire of London houses. We are hopeful that the Fire Service will make a visit soon.

19th September 2019

Owls have been enjoying our text, Rapunzel by Bethan Woollvin, so far. We have been engaging in role play and hot seating. Owls wrote a diary entry as Rapunzel, recalling a day stuck in the tower and they have been making a witch's potion!

In topic they have been learning about life in 1666 and they have chosen some interesting jobs that they would have liked to do, like a rat catcher and a gong farmer. They have learnt about looking at evidence from the past and used Samuel Pepys' diary entries to inspire them to write their own diary entries of the Great Fire of London.

In Maths Owls have been working on reading and writing numbers. They have also been looking at different ways to represent numbers.
