Crew Welburn’s Weekly Overview 7.5.2021


Maths week ➕➖✖➗

We’ve had lots of fun carrying out different maths challenges this week in Crew Welburn. We’ve made our maths learning really fun by using practical activities to learn our number bonds. We played parachute games, pretended to be Farmer Pete’s sheet, and played bingo! We’ve had so much fun and topped it our with our number dress up day.

Highlight of the week:

Our highlight of the week has to be our HOWLs. We have worked so hard this week so that we could get smart and we have all made sure that we have been kind. This has meant that we have met minimum expectation every day as a crew which is amazing! I am so proud of Crew Welburn’s attitude towards their learning this week, keep it up!

HOWL Heroes:

Work hard: Charlie is my work hard HOWL Hero today as he has been working really hard to get smart in his arithmetic. Charlie has been using his number line to help him work out his addition and subtraction questions which is fantastic!

My learning legend for this week is Charlie Strutt. Charlie has worked so hard this week to set himself targets during crew to make sure he is achieving at least minimum expectation with his work hard HOWL. Charlie consistently reflects on his target throughout the day to remind himself of what he needs to do, and does it without being asked. This makes you a fantastic role model in Crew Welburn Charlie, keep up the hard work.

HOWL Score: 3.1 Well done Crew Welburn!

This week’s HOWL average: 3.3 Well done Crew Welburn, this is a much better score!

Crew Welburn’s Weekly Overview – 30.4.2021

Friday ✔

We have had a busy week in Crew Welburn trying to work on our HOWLs by working hard, getting smart and being kind. We’ve had lots of reflection time during crew and we have made our pledges to help us to improve our HOWL scores. I have seen such an improvement today which is fantastic. I can’t wait to see our scores next week.

Highlight of the week:

Our highlight of the week has to be our expedition launch hook day. We got to jet off on an aeroplane to the African Savanna, the Arctic Ocean and Antarctica to explore different animals and the climates around the world. We had so much fun! Our classroom is now fully immersed in our new expedition and we can’t wait to get started!

Check out our TWIP video to see what else we got up to.

HOWL Heroes:

Work hard: Evie

Get smart: Charlie

Be kind: Harry

My learning legend for this week is Kairen Bell. Kairen has been a superstar since coming back to school and always works hard to be a fantastic role model in Crew Welburn. Kairen has been working hard to get smart in his phonics and writing lessons all week, and has created some fantastic pieces of writing about The Wizard of Oz. He has used his Fred fingers to write all of his words accurately, and re-read his work to check it made sense. This is amazing Kairen, keep up the good work. 

HOWL Score: 3.3 Well done Crew Welburn!

This week’s HOWL average: 2.9 We know what we need to work on next week Crew Welburn.
