Welbeck Class

Maths: Counting forwards and backwards from a given number.

Week beginning: Monday 21st September 2020


In maths this week we have been focusing on counting forwards and backwards form any given number. We had spent the beginning of the week completing worksheets and playing games on the whiteboard. Towards the end of the week we played a game of hungry hippos in the hall. Everyone had a turn to collect as many balls as they could and then count forwards or backwards from a given number depending on the amount of balls in their basket. It was great fun and everyone asked to do it again next week!

Food Technology: Making a hot drink

Week beginning: Monday 14th September 2020


In Food Technology we are thinking about how to complete simple life skills. This week we have demonstrated how to make a hot drink. The pupils had to write instructions and then follow them to see if they were correct. Everyone had a really good go and a few people noticed that they had made a mistake with their instructions when they had cold hot chocolates!  

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Week beginning: Monday 7th September 2020


This week Welbeck have been making the mot of the nice weather outside. We have been playing lot`s of games including stuck in the mud, cat and mouse and ball games.

Wow! What a first week back.

Welbeck`s Timetable 2020-2021

Welbeck 2019-2020 Team work

Week beginning: Monday 15th June 2020


This year Welbeck class have worked as an excellent team. They have looked out for each other and supported each other with different tasks. UNO has been a huge love in our class this year and we have often all played a game together which is lovely to see. We have supported each other when learning magic tricks, having fun in the snow and making shoe boxes at Christmas for a local refuge.

Although it has been a very strange few months I am really proud of all the achievements Welbeck have made this year.  

Welbeck 2019-2020 life skills

Week beginning: Monday 18th May 2020


While the home learning continues Welbeck are doing a great job of completing their work at home. As well as completing their work at home, I have also been told about lot`s of helping around the house and trips out to the park. I thought it would be nice to have a look at some of the life skills we have taken part in at school since September.

This year we have looked at healthy foods in our healthy living lessons, made cups of tea and sandwiches in our New Horizon lessons and carried out little tasks like taking the register.  

We have practiced crossing the road when out in the public and had a tour around our local morrisons where we were all able to have a go on the tills.



Home learning continued

Week beginning: Monday 27th April 2020


Week 6 of lockdown and Welbeck class are still going strong!

I am really proud of all the hard work that I am seeing at home from all pupils. There has been a lot of children making the most of the nice weather with long walks and trips to see the ducks. There has also been a lot cooking and baking happening with parents and carers which is great to see.

On top of all that I can see that Welbeck class are also finding time to complete the maths and English work set for each day. 

Above you can see a few more pictures of home learning taking place at the children`s and staff`s home. 

Well done Welbeck and keep being fabulous! 

Home Learning

Week beginning: Monday 30th March 2020


What a strange few weeks it has been with everyone staying at home, keeping themselves safe from the virus. Although it has been a completly new routine for us, I have been very proud with how well Welbeck class have been coping with the changes. I have had a lot of positive feedback from parents and carers about the quality of work being completed at home. 

I have really enjoyed recieving the pictures and videos via SeeSaw to show what everyone has been doing. Above you will see some of the home learning that has been taking place by staff and pupils in Welbeck. 

Well done Welbeck and keep up the hard work! 

PSHE: Washing Hands.

Still image for this video

Week beginning: Monday 16th March 2020


With the growing increase of the Coronavirus, Welbeck class have been taking extra precautions to ensure that we keep ourselves clean to avoid spreading germs.

We have created posters to go around school and now have the hand washing symbols on our timetable.

We thought it would be a good idea to show everyone what we have been up to in a hand washing video.

This term in Healthy living we have been working on our skills in the kitchen. We have had a go at measuring amounts, mixing ingredients and using an oven. 

This week we focused on a really simple life skill, making a jam sandwhich and a cuppa tea.

All the children were able to independently make a sandwhich and cuppa tea with close supervision. They were able to talk about how to keep themselves safe when using a kettle and could wash up after themselves too. Well done Welbeck class  :)

New Horizon: Helping others

Week beginning: Monday 25th November 2019


In our New Horizon lessons, Welbeck have been thinking about other people in our local community and how they may need help and support. We talked about children in need and then thought about children in refuges. We thought about how often these children are removed from their homes without any toys or teddies and what Christmas might look like for them. As a class we decided to make shoe boxes for the children in a local refuge for Christmas. Each child wrapped a shoe box and then thought of 5 items that they could go out and buy to gift to another child. 

Due to the generosity of Welbeck class and their parents we will have hopefully made 10 children in refuge a little more happy this Christmas. 

Week beginning: Monday 18th November 2019


As part of our Topic on World War and conflict, Welbeck class had the exciting opportunity to visit Eden Camp in North Yorkshire. Eden Camp is a history museum that occupies a former Second World War prisoner-of-war camp of 33 huts. After the prisoners left it was then used for storage and then abandoned making it the perfect place for a War museum. 

It was a long day but everyone had a great time and enjoyed looking at all the photos from the war. 

Topic: World War

Week beginning: Monday 11th November 2019


This term Welbeck are beginning to look at World War 1, we are thinking about how it happened, who was involved and how it ended. This week was a perfect week to be talking about WW1 as the Monday was Remembrance Day. Everyone was able to take part in a 2-minute silence at 11am on the Monday. On Tuesday we had a walk to the cenotaph in Kirkby in Ashfield, everyone took turns in laying a poppy wreath and talking about what happens at a remembrance parade. 

Mental Health and Wellbeing Day

Week beginning: Monday 16th September 2019


This term in science we are looking at our digestive system. We have looked at the key parts of our body that help us to digest food and carried out an experiment to visually see what happens. 


Everyone made a banana sandwich and then chopped it all up to show how the teeth work. 

We put our banana sandwiches in a bowl and added washing up liquid to represent the stomach acid 

Children then put the moshed up mixture into a pair of stockings and squeezed them really tight ot get rid of the mositure like in the intestines. 

Finally a hole was cut in the end of the stockings and the children squeezed out the mixture to make a solid pretend poo. 

Everyone had great fun and was able to undertsand what each part of the process was linked to.
