Welcome to Hillary Class
Be the Best you can Be
Hello and welcome to Hillary Class, we are really looking forward to getting to know you and your child as their learning journey begins at Gamston Primary School. As the Class teacher I will be available before and after School if you have any questions or queries, Mrs Morris is our wonderful full time Nursery Nurse working alongside us too.
Thank you Miss Weselby
A very big thank you to the PFA for very kindly buying us a super Gruffalo and Handa's Surprise puppet set, the children in Hillary Class have loved acting out the story and been incredibly creative with their acting skills!
Red Nose Day
Hillary Class had a super day celebrating Comic Relief.
World Book Day
Look at how the fantastic children in Hillary Class all dressed up for World Book Day. Excellent costumes and the children were so knowledgeable about their book character, we are so proud of the fantastic writing that they have produced.
Great Wall of China
This afternoon for our China topic the children learnt some fantastic facts about The Great Wall of China and used construction materials to build their own Great Walls.
Today in Hillary Class we looked at the traditional Chinese dress and painted and decorated some lovely Chinese dolls.
What a wonderful day the children had on Friday celebrating the China Day. We produced some super dragon art work, read some non fiction books about China and Chinese New Year, tried some Chinese food and performed a dragon dance in the hall too. A very big Thank you to Benny's Mummy for making such a superb dragon for us to dance with.
Wow! We are so impressed with the wonderful children in Hillary Class for their amazing Chinese dragon models, masks and art work they are superb and really enhance our topic. A very big thank you to all of the parents for your help and support.
Lovely Library visit
Hillary Class spent a super morning at Retford Library, listening to stories and sharing books. A huge thank you to Mrs Singh, Mrs Todd, Mrs Cook and Mr Weselby for helping to transport the children to and from the library.
The children in Hillary Class have had a fun morning exploring the frost and fog, they made frost angels and measured how far they could run before they couldn't see each other because of the fog!
Super Story characters
A huge thank you to all of the parents who sent in biscuits, models, cuddly toys and art work with the children for them to celebrate the launch day of National Story Telling Week. The children loved sharing their favourite story characters with the class and this led to some wonderful independent writing too.
Today in Hillary Class we looked at some pictures and video's of snowflakes. We described them and thought about how they would move, we then went and did some snowflake dancing and pretended to be swirling, sparkling snowflakes.
A special visitor
Today we had a wonderful surprise a guide dog for the blind came to visit us in assembly with her owner. We were able to ask questions and give her a stroke too.
Wonderful Winter Wednesday
What a fantastic day we had to celebrate the start of our Winter topic. We looked at ice melting and freezing and practiced our cutting skills to make a snowman. We also watched some videos of building a snowman and learnt a snowman song and dance.
A super party afternoon
This afternoon was our Christmas party, what a super time we had! Party games with our friends in Bannister, party food and a very special visitor. We are really on the count down for Christmas now.
Look at the wonderful nativity stars! We are so excited about our Nativity performances on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday evening thank you so much for your support with the wonderful costumes.
Christmas biscuit decorating
What a fantastic time the children in Hillary Class had decorating Christmas shortbread biscuits. A huge thank you to Kim and Rachel for giving up their own time to bake the biscuits and then to support the children with the decorations.

Look at the wonderful Nativity art work that the children in Hillary Class produced with Mr Woodsford and Mrs Morris.
Wow what a super day the children in Hillary Class have had, to conclude our fire topic we had a very special visit from the fire fighters and a fire engine. The children tried on the fire fighters clothes, squirted the hose and had a chance to sit in the fire engine!
Children in Need 2018!
We had a super spotty day in Hillary class celebrating Children Need. We had a parade in front of the School to show off our spotty, bright and Pudsey clothes. We also decorated biscuits and cakes with Bannister Class this was a fantastic opportunity for the oldest and youngest children in School to work together, we made headbands and face masks too. We sold the cakes and biscuits and all of the proceeds went to Children in Need. A very big thank you to Sophia's Mummy for baking us such a yummy cake to share.
Look at our wonderful fire art work for our fire topic
