Learning is fun in Class 1!

Class 1 had great fun raising money for Red Nose Day. The children were set the challenge of taking part in a talent show. Class 1 proved that Lockington School really does have talent! The children performed dances, jokes, songs, gymnastics and tap dancing! It was a lovely show and we really do have some very talented children, well done to everyone.

This week in PE class 1 were treated to a Hogwarts lesson in Quidditch by First Steps. The children really enjoyed getting sorted into teams by the sorting hat and learning the rules of Quidditch. Watch the slide show below to see how we got on!

Class 1 had great fun writing their own stories for World Book Day based on our Christian Value of Courage. The stories were all fantastic and it was hard to pick a winner! The children came dressed up as a character from their story and they all looked amazing. The day was packed with book day activities and to round it off the whole school came together for a quiz with cookies and milk!

The children in class 1 have designed and made bird feeders for their DT project this half term. We managed to get them up in time to take part in this years Big Bird Watch. We split up into little groups and observed the different types of birds we could see. We lost count of the number of crows and seagulls when a tractor started ploughing a field! We certainly learnt lots of different bird sounds!

Our Nursery and Reception children enjoyed a visit Mrs Kemp who is a nurse in the local community. She told the children all about what she does in her job and taught them how to bandage. The children really enjoyed playing with the different pieces of equipment she gave them!

Class 1 had great fun  dressing up for Children in Need. They started the morning off with a fantastic work out quiz with Joe Wicks. I am pleased to say they scored 20 out of 20 and burnt lots of energy off at the same time!

The children had brought in board games from home so we all enjoyed playing a variety of games together. This was followed by a delicious bun sale which everyone loved. The rest of the day was spent playing games and enjoying Pudsey Bear activities. Thank you to everyone for your donations and support. 

On Wednesday 6th October Class 1 enjoyed a lovely walk to Lockington Church to take part in their Harvest Festival. The church was beautifully decorated and it was so nice to be back there, for some of our younger children, it was their first time. The children shared acrostic poems they had written and talked about things they were thankful for. Some of our year two children performed a group poem about harvest. The children really enjoyed taking part with a familiar story, 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. Thank you so much to all parents for the generous donations you sent in, they were very much appreciated. We missed all our parents and class 2! Please see some of our photos from the day below. 

Class 1 had a great time at Sports Day. We very much missed our parents and spectators but the sun was out and we had lots of fun. Well done to everyone for fantastic team work.

Class 1 enjoyed their Whole School Gardening Day. They all worked really hard to weed all the flower beds and dig out unwanted moss!

Class 1 had great fun dressing up in red for Red Nose Day. The children designed and made their own red noses and then took part in a nose and spoon obstacle course!

 The children in Class 1 enjoyed taking part in many World Book Day activities. They created their own book marks and designed a book cover for the book they would write. Their knowledge was put to the test in a book quiz. Great fun was had trying to spot clues in a picture to work out familiar books. They ended the day making shadow puppets of their favourite characters. We missed the children at home and are looking forward to seeing and hearing about their book day experience! Please enjoy our pictures below.

The children in Class 1 wanted to perform a poem for everyone for Christmas. This is their reading of 10 White Snowmen.

Class 1 had a fantastic Christmas Party thanks to the brilliant Friends of the School, who provided them with a feast fit for Kings and Queens. The children played many games and even Santa managed to visit the class. He got a bit muddled up though and for a minute they all thought they were on the naughty list, but phew, he meant the nice list!

We may not have been able to deliver our usual fantastic Christmas play performance, but class 1 enjoyed dressing up and playing the part. We have made it to the papers, so keep looking out for us!

On Wednesday 9th December, Class 1 enjoyed taking part in their Christingle Service. The Church was decorated beautifully and the children enjoyed listening to stories and music about the birth of Jesus. Ellie and Oliver read a beautiful passage between them about the different parts of the Christingle and what they represent. As always, the lighting of the Christingles was magical. We missed Class 2 and our families and we hope you enjoy looking at our pictures.

Class 1 enjoyed taking part in Children in Need day on Friday 13th November. They began the day by working out with Joe Wicks as he finished his 24 hour work out. A range of wrapped cakes and biscuits were sold by the School Council and they all took part in a colouring competition. All the entries were fantastic, well done to Rosie who went on to win. A big thank you to all the parents for supporting us with this event.

On Tuesday 10th November, Class 1 were taught PE by Owen from Active Learning. The children enjoyed two hours of PE and really improved their ball skills. They learnt how to develop technique and accuracy when aiming for a target through a variety of fun games. They also enjoyed Maths and English through PE too. The children worked hard and a big thank you to Owen.

Class 1 have had a busy first half term and have all worked really hard. They finished their Journey topic by designing and making their own vehicles. Here is a selection of some of the things they have been up to.

What a beautiful sunny day to take a walk to the church and celebrate the Harvest Festival! On October 14th, class 1 joined Rev. Carol at St. Mary's Church, Lockington to recognise the importance of the farming community and give praise for our food, families and friends. A tasty food poem about peas, squash, turnips, lettuce and thyme was beautifully performed by the Year 2's. This was followed by everyone sharing their thoughts and feelings of what they are thankful for at Harvest time.

It may have been an unusual celebration this year, with no class 2, parents or singing, but we all enjoyed learning about this Christian festival which is a crucial part of the church's calendar. Thank you to you all for your generous donations which will be taken to William Booth House in Hull. It was a lovely service and for some of our pupils, their first time at Lockington Church. The children were a credit to you all.

We have had another great week for learning in class 1, both in and out of school. I have loved seeing all the fantastic flags that have been created on Purple Mash and the fact sheets on William the Conqueror. Well done Finlay, Oliver, Isobel and Isla for all the fantastic work you have been doing at home, we have all loved seeing it. A big well done to Isobel, the only certificate this week. It is the final week of term next week so keep working hard and let's see if everyone can get a certificate! Take care and stay safe!

Remember to send in any pictures of your rainbows, Easter gardens and art work so we can all share them!

Have you seen all the rainbows displayed in people's windows? Maybe you have already done one to put up but, if not, that's one of your tasks on the 'Home Learning' tab for this week. They are a symbol of hope and peace and intended to cheer everyone up at this difficult time.

Remember, if you have any issues with accessing documents just email school and we will try and help you out.

Also, this Friday, as we are unable to do Achievement Assembly I will upload any pictures of certificates achieved from Lexia and IXL. 


Fluffington finally finished his rainbow and has put it up in Miss Peacock's window. He has made some new friends too!
