Working Together for the Good of Each Other

Hadid Class

For home learning this week the children have listened to the story of 'The Great Explorer' and started to write their own stories.

In history home learning the children have been learning about significant people. They chose a significant person from their own lives and then one from history.

In RE they have been listening to the story of the 10 lepers and reflecting upon what they are thankful for.

Welcome to Hadid Class.

This year our class is named after Zaha Hadid who was an Iraqi-British architect who was born in 1950 and died in 2016. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize.


Take a look around our classroom.

The Posada represents Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem where baby Jesus was born and each child will get the chance to welcome them into their homes throughout their journey. The children can light a candle, choose a prayer to read and reflect upon the Advent season and how we can prepare for the celebrations.

'Star of the Week' this week is Ivayla. For always trying her best in everything she does and always having a smile on her face.

We made Christmas cards for our families today. We followed instructions to fold, cut and stick our cards together.

The children really enjoyed completing the 'Santa Dash!'

Healthy heads

This week we are learning division.

Hadid has two 'Stars of the Week' this week. Olivia for working really hard in English and writing a super newspaper report about the 'Big Bad Wolf' and Archie for completing super home learning work. Well done both of you.

Healthy heads-Teamwork

We have been learning repeated addition, multiplication and solving problems this week.

We had a zoom lesson with the 'Creepy Crawly Road Show' as part as our animals topic. We learnt many amazing facts about mini-beasts.

The weeks 'Star of the Week' is Hermione for giving 100% in everything she does and being a good role model for other children.

Healthy heads- This week we learnt about teamwork and used these skills to work together during PE acivities.

In RE this week we listened to the story of 'The Annunciation' from the Bible as children acted out the story for the class. Then the children wrote the story thinking about what the Angel said to Mary and how she replied.

In worship we thought about what 'Red Wednesday' meant and prayed for the Christians who were ill-treated for their belief.

The children have been learning about habitats around the world and how animals adapt to their environments in science. They then chose a habitat and created it using collage materials.

This week, Hadid's 'Star of the Week' is Harriet. For being a super mathematician and having a mature, sensible attitude.

Healthy heads-This week, the children learnt about kindness in relation to their own feelings and emotions, and also the feelings and emotions of others.

To start our new topic 'Traditional tales with a twist' We listened to 'The little pigs' used role-play to tell the story and wrote a story map.

For 'Anti-Bullying' week this year we wore odd socks, discussed what bullying is and what we should do if we or one of our friends were being bullied. We then designed odd socks to use for a display.

Hadid's 'stars of the week' this week are Maria and Brendan for both working so hard and pushing themselves to do their very best in all lessons. Well done!

Healthy heads-feelings

Today in science, the children worked in mixed ability pairs to describe the different habitats around the world using adjectives and what animals they thought would live there. Then they presented their work to the class.

We wrote acrostic poems for Remembrance day and the children put poppies in their windows at home.

We made Victorian toys in history.

Hadid Class Autumn II 2020

This week, Hadid's 'Star of the Week' is Jorja for always learning her spellings, reading at home and just being an all round super star! Well done!

In history we have been learning about how Victorian schools were different from our own. We have learnt about the punishments children received for talking in class and the lessons they learnt in school. The children thought it would be a good idea to have separate lessons for girls and boys but didn't think it very fair that girls learnt sewing and cooking and the boys got to learn carpentry!

This week we are learning to add 2 and 3 digit numbers.

This week the 'Star of the Week' in Hadid Class is Evie, she has been chosen because she always chooses to do the right thing and is a lovely, kind member of our class. Well done Evie!
