Some children from 1K have written about our trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in May. Just to clarify, Mr Knight was not on the school trip. In Australia he had an altercation with a kangaroo when Mrs Knight, Mr Knight and their family were on holiday in 2015.
Year 1 went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and the polar bear was sitting in the water. I saw a giraffe in the distance. There were peachy brown camels. I spotted a leopard in the distance. There were 2 brown bears. There were wallabies and there was poo!! I loved my packed lunch. FC
This term year 1 1went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and we say loads of animals there. WE saw 2 brown bears and we saw a rhino that we eating some grass. I was scared of the tigers and we saw peachy brown camels in a group. We say a baby wallaby in its mothers pouch and there was lots of poo! JH
1K and 1F went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We saw lots of animals – tigers, lions and more. Some were very cheeky. The giraffes were tall. I was scared. The teachers guided us. We saw a brown bear just like in the Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? book. Nature is clever. We saw a snake. You have to be careful because they are wild. My favourite one was the snake. It was fun. They were weird. BW
Year 1 went to the zoo. I was tempted to go. The animals were east to spot. Some animals were very delicate. It was funny when James and Eloise were acting out when Mr Knight fought a kangaroo. JG
Year 1 went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We had loads of fun. I saw some lions and I saw a camel. We learnt about animals. We had the chance to hold the animals and stroke the animals. After we finish we had to wash our hands. Mr Knight fought a kangaroo. We saw a wallaby. You have to be careful. MH
Year 1 went to the zoo. We saw a lion. We went to have lunch. I was terrified of the tiger because they are meat eaters. My favourite animal was the tiger. HA
Some children from 1K have written about our 6 ice skating lessons.
Year 1 went Ice Skating. Ice is slippy but if someone goes to ice skating you want to fall and get freezing. You need safety. You need gloves and coats and a scarf too When I went ice skating I was nervous but I did it and I was delicate. SR
Year 1 went to ice skating. I felt scared there my first time. The last time I felt I could do it and i miss it. Someone one dancing in a blue circle. I love ice skating. SG
Year 1 went to ice skating. I was scared to go on the ice. The teacher said I was good. I was surprised to go on the ice. I love ice skating. I found it easier when I carried on. SV
Year 1 ice skaing. Firse when we went ice skating I was scared. But then I got used to it. I was a little more clam. Every Wednesday I got really excited and more. When I got there I always tried my best. Ice skating is real hard but when you practise it gets easier and easier. After we were learning we had fun time. When we were going I got sad. IM
This term year 1 went ice skating. The first time going ice skating I was proud of myself for going ice skating and not holding onto the side. I was excited to go. James was good at ice skating because he is good a roller skating. A
Have a look at our ” Super Grenouilles” ( our super frogs) who did an excellent job in French this term and last Tuesday they enjoyed French outside playing a running dictation game. Well done to all of them!
RRSA and School Council have been working hard to produce their own School Improvement Plan and here it is:
Middleton Primary and Nursery School
School Improvement Plan 2018-19
Make sure that the Rights Respecting School Award is part of everyone’s education at Middleton and try to achieve the Gold award again.
Make sure that the adults who help run the school (staff and governors) are working together to do the best they can for everyone at Middleton.
Keep the school running as normally as we can during the building works, and be ready for having an extra class start each year.
Teaching and learning
Teachers will try to help us to get even better at Maths and Writing. We will be given more time to do longer pieces of Writing by ourselves.
When we find things harder in Reading, Writing and Maths, teachers will try to give us extra help so we can catch up.
Well done Year 1 and 2 for your amazing singing and instrument playing. We all had a fantastic time raising money for our sister school in Togo. A big thank you to Miss Need for helping us organise this fantastic event.
What a show! The children were all amazing for each performance. We have received many many compliments. Thank you to everyone who helped at home with costumes, singing and learning lines.
