Yellow Team 1 Sports Day! (29/6/21) 🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️💪

Today, Yellow Team 1 Crew managed to have a really fun day. We completed lots of different challenging, but exciting competitions, from standing long jump to the javelin. I think we all really enjoyed the javelin the most, as we took many goes at this. We managed to come second with Crew Yellow 🌞🌞 overall. We were really pleased! Here are some photos from our first sports day in a long time! A massive shout out to the Year 6s for helping explain the activities so well!

We had a great day and can’t wait to compete again! 😆

Crew Elmer Final Blog 😥

The day has finally come to write Crew Elmer’s final blog after our final day together…😥 However, we have had a lovely last day altogether 💕

Today’s star moment ☀ : 

Today’s star moment has got to be the whole day! However, some moments that stood out were making pizzas 🍕, designing biscuits 🍪 and pass the parcel 🎁.

It has been an absolute pleasure teaching Crew Elmer and I really will miss all of them! Fingers crossed I will be back after half term and will get to spend some time with them all before my maternity leave starts! Have an amazing and well deserved half term and I will see you all after half term! 😊

Crew Elmer Weekly Blog 14.05.21

What a fantastic week Crew Elmer has had! We have done some great learning especially in writing with such creative minds. The children have worked hard to go above and beyond by smashing targets and improving in many ways this week.

Star moment of the week ☀ : 

This week’s star moment has got to be the way the children actively took part in learning about the muscles in our expedition lessons ‘Why is the body a miraculous machine?’. The children really enjoyed taking part in a series of activities including: a mindfulness activity; a cut and stick skeleton activity where they had to add muscles and label them; and also an active lesson using different exercises to see the effect on their muscles. The children had heaps of fun while learning key vocabulary about the muscles.

This week’s HOWL average is: 3

We have reached last weeks target! We have smashed it this week but lets make sure we keep pushing for those 4’s to keep our crew average up there! Try to keep working on our ‘Get smart’ ‘Work hard’ and ‘Be kind’ to ensure we are progressing in our HOWL scores! Overall Crew Elmer has had a great week and has stood out by making sure that they are all working hard.

This week’s HOWL target is: 3.1

We can develop this week by focusing on being kind as we move into our new crews next week. Make sure we are including everyone and pushing to work hard together so we can strengthen our crews.

Today Learning Legend is: Jazmin. Jazmin does not always find learning easy and sometimes lacks the confidence in her ability. However, she should not have any doubts as she has been working incredibly hard this half term already and this is enabling her to make massive progress especially in her writing and arithmetic. She has a great positive attitude towards her learning and her confidence is blossoming! She is participating more in class and this is allowing her to gain the maximum amount of learning and knowledge from each lesson. Keep this up Jazmin and continue to believe in yourself because you can do it and you sure are brighter than you believe! Well done Jazmin! 

This week’s HOWL Heros were: Kacey-leigh, Frankie, Laila, Jazmin and Ray.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I will see you all on Tuesday (when I am back in class), refreshed and ready to learn.

    Well what a wonderful week it has been in Crew Elmer this week! We have been very busy learning lots but have also had lots of fun! We have especially enjoyed ‘Number Week’ and ‘NSPCC Number Day’! We have completed lots of different number challenges this week and have really enjoyed exploring maths more!

    Star moment of the week: ⭐

    This week’s star moment has to be our ‘Number work’. Children have completed lots of ‘hands on maths’ challenges this week, as well as arithmetic questions and open ended problems. The children also really enjoyed their maths challenge today where they had to hunt around the playground and field for different answers and scan a QR code to reveal a hidden letter and then work as mini crews to ‘crack the code’! The children were really engaged and loved this interactive maths moment! I don’t think they realised how much fun they could have with maths! See some snaps below! 📸🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️✏

    This week’s HoWL average is: 2.9

    Oooh…. we are slowly getting closer to that 3.0! I am very confident that next week if we all pull together and focus on our HoWLs that we can achieved the ME HoWL target of a 3.0! 🤞

    Next week’s weekly HoWL target is: 3.0

    How can we develop this next week? 

    All crew members need to continue to pull together to help each other to get those 3’s and 4’s for their HoWLs. Some crew members also need to work hard on being kind to each other as we have had a few fall out this week.

    This week’s HoWL Heros: 

    This week’s HoWL Heroes were Harry, Esme, Kacey-Leigh and Frankie! Well done to all of you! 👏🙌👍😁

    Today’s Learning Legend:

    Today’s Learning Legend was: Harry! Harry has really impressed me recently with his positive attitude towards trying to achieve his Reading ME Target. Reading isn’t Harry’s favourite subject but this week I have been blown away with how Harry’s words per minute have increased, he is also reading with greater fluency and is able to use direct quotes from the text as evidence to support his answers during our comprehension sessions. I am very confident that if Harry keeps this up he will totally smash his ME target! Amazing work Harry! Well done! 👍😁🙌👏☀

    Have a great weekend Crew Elmer and I will see you all on Monday! 🖐
