Katy Morag

Class One are getting on with their new topic of Katy Morag, today they were looking at different forms of transport on the island.

Movement art

University student, Jess, came into class and spoke to the class about her work and how she has been taught to draw. The children were really impressed with her work and keen to hear about the coursework and expectations of university. Jess worked with the class in the movement art too, they said after that it was nice to have a teacher who can actually draw…charming eh?! Needless to say, I’ve invited Jess to come again!

The sports movement pictures are almost ready for display, finishing touches applied today and research has also started on the history of transport.

Did you visit East Park between 1st July to 2nd August 2013?

We have recieved this email, please respond if you feel it applies to you.

I am Dr Rossid, one of the doctors working for the Public Helath England in Yorkshire and the Humber.

I have spoken to  one of your admin officers about a press release by the Hull City Council regarding an outbreak of Cryptosporidum earlier in the summer among visitors to the city’s East Park. To help us with the investigation, the council is appealing for the people who visited the park between 1st July to 2nd August 2013 with children under aged 12 to complete a short online questionnaire – regardless of them being ill or not.
