The whole school took part in a ‘Reindeer Run’ to raise money for Dove House Hospice. The children in class 2 led a warm-up to ensure our reindeer muscles and legs were ready. Then Jensen led the whole school on a ten lap sponsored canter around the playground. Bells were ringing and antlers were dancing, a whole lot of fun was had!
Thank you to everyone who took part, we are still collecting in the money and will let you know the final amount raised.
Lockington School’s Christmas Fair was a huge success! The event was organised by our extremely hard working Friends of Lockington School. The children opened the fair by singing some favourite Christmas songs and then it was time to visit all the beautiful stalls.
Class 2 had a great time creating decorations and cards to sell on their class enterprise stall. We will let you know what we decide to spend our takings on!
Special visit from Mr Webb
Class 1 were delighted to have a visit from Mr Webb who kindly came to talk to them about being a farmer in the local area. The children were amazed at how big the tractor was and learnt all about the things the tractor was used for and what it can do. Mr Webb told the children all about his farm and the different jobs he has to do on it. The children couldn’t believe that he has never had Christmas Day off, he always has jobs to do!
Special visitors in RE
On Thursday 16th November we were delighted to welcome Sholeh and Sina, faith members of the Bahai Community of Hull. They shared the fundamentals of their religion which is all-accepting and welcomes people of all other faiths to their meetings. The strong messages of love, hope and mankind working together as one, seemed particularly relevant in today’s world. The children enjoyed learning through story, song and discussion all about another world religion.
The Good Samaritan
In RE class 1 have been looking at right and wrong choices. They acted out the Parable of The Good Samaritan and thought carefully about the choices the people made.
Reception and nursery children are really enjoying having fun exploring the environment on Welly Wednesday! Look at some of the things they have been getting up to.
Anti - Bullying Week
Class 1 certainly enjoyed getting the theme of this years anti – bullying week across: Make a Noise About Bullying when they took part in an active workshop led by Flex Dance. They children danced and sang superbly and certainly made a noise!
Class 1 were very excited to take part in their whole school Harvest Festival on the 4th October as it was the first time that the nursery children had taken part. The class performed their own version of The Little Red Hen and put on an amazing performance.
World Book Day
In the lead up to World Book Day, class 1 took part in some virtual meet the author visits with Scholastic. They met Axel Scheffler and listened to him reading two of his books. He showed everyone how to draw some of his characters, which was amazing. Next we met Julia Donaldson and she told the class a story called, ‘The Baddies.’ Finally we met an author called Kaye Umansky who told us all about her love of ducks and read her book, ‘The Delightful Duck.’ On World Book Day, we all enjoyed dressing up as our favourite characters!
During the autumn term Class 1 designed and made their own vehicles. Look at some of our finished vehicles below.
