Welcome To Hawker Class

School Closure:
If you are looking for additional ways to support your child at home, please have a look at the list of websites below. Lots of educational wesbites are offering free short-term memberships at the moment.
 
We have set up a new private Facebook group for the class: Hawker Class 2020
On this group I have shared lots of files. I have also created a Google Drive with files which are all accessible here: Year 1 and Year 2 
 
 
 
 
Welcome to the Hawker Class website pages! 
 
Wriggle and Crawl 
 
Put on your coat and wellies and let’s head outside on a minibeast hunt.
 
This term, we’ll head to a woodland to identify minibeasts in their natural habitat. We’ll write a guide book for other children to use on a minibeast hunt, draw sketch maps of our minibeast hunting area and create minibeast stories and poems. Heading out into the local area, we’ll explore trees and bushes to see what lives there, investigate how far and how fast a snail can travel and create a minibeast habitat of our own. We’ll draw delicate sketches of minibeasts, make models from a variety of materials and use microscopes to observe minibeasts up close. We’ll also observe a beehive through live webcam footage.

A special assembly on 20th March will give us the chance to share our knowledge. We’ll create a PowerPoint presentation, use scientific vocabulary to explain what we have learnt, show our artwork and share our writing. 
 
Previously:
Our first topic in the autumn term was called Beachcombers and was all about the seaside. Ask your child if they can remember what beachcombing means and what else they learned about.
 
Our second topic in the autumn term was called The Enchanted Woodland and was all about the outdoors and woodland areas. Ask your child what they can remember about this topic. 
 
Our third topic was called Bright Lights, big city and focused on the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland with an in depth look at London. Can your child remember the events of the Great Fire of London? 
 
Many thanks,
 
Mrs Steer & the Hawker Class team

We will continue to complete the Daily Mile challenge as well as using the BBC Super Movers and Go Noodle websites to ensure that our pupils have regular movement breaks. 
 
Please remind your child not to bring toys into school with them.
