Well today has been a slightly emotional day in Crew Elmer 😥 which is totally understandable but I do hope that the children have had the opportunity to digest the information received and that they enjoy a lovely long break this weekend! 😊 Fingers crossed for some sunshine! ☀

Star moment of the week: ⭐

This week’s star moment has to be our crew building session on Tuesday! The children really enjoyed working in mini crews to build towers using only marshmallows and spaghetti. I was blown away with how well crew members worked together not only to support each other but also in sharing ideas to allow them to ALL be successful. It was lovely to observe this 💕 Great Crew work Crew Elmer! Well done! 👍🙌👏

This week’s HoWL average is: 2.8

Not a bad weekly score but a little off our ME which is 3.0! Hopefully next week we can achieve this! 🤞

Next week’s weekly HoWL target is: 3.0

How can we develop this next week? 

All crew members need to work together to ensure that all crew members are working hard, getting smart and being kind ALL day to get those 3’s and 4’s.

This week’s HoWL Heros: 

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

NSPCC Number Day

NSPCC Number Day at school

Dear Parents and Carers 

Next week is maths week at Carcroft (4th – 7th May).  We will be celebrating maths and to do this we will be doing the following:

  • Each day you will be informed of a challenge you can complete at home and bring into school or send to your crew leader on Class Dojo.
  • Each day there will be a FUN maths challenge on the blog for you to complete as a family at home
  • Friday is NSPCC Maths day so we will be having a ‘maths’ dress up day or Non-Uniform Day with numbers (£1 donation)

Please see the school blog for links to the NSPCC maths day website, ideas for dress up and daily posts next week.

Thrilling Thursday!🌟

Star moment of the day: ⭐

Today’s ‘star moment’ has to be our ‘Write Stuff’ lesson this morning. After not doing much writing this week in Crew Elmer with a heavy focus being on Experience Days and grammar I was nervous about the children writing today…. However, I didn’t need to worry as the writing that they produced was amazing! They included expanded noun phrases, a range of pronouns and some very imaginative similes! It just showed me how much they had absorbed from the experience days! Amazing work Crew Elmer! Well done! 👍👏📝✏🙌😁

Todays HoWL average is: 2.7

Another slightly lower score than I would have hoped but today we had three absences and also some children unfortunately let themselves down. I am hoping for a better day tomorrow! 🤞

This week’s HoWL target is: 3.0

How can we develop this tomorrow? 

All crew members need to work together to ensure that all crew members are working hard, getting smart and being kind ALL day.

Today’s HoWL Hero: 

Today’s HoWL Hero was Hannah May! Hannah May blew me away with her knowledge during our Road Safety session this afternoon. She could list several different crossings including how to use them safely, recite the Green Cross Code and list the dangers and distractions related to road crossing! She was also voted our Road Safety Expert! If you need to know how to cross the road safely then Hannah May is your lady! Amazing Hannah May! Well done! 🙌🤩👏👍👣🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️🚗

Wonderful Wednesday! 🌟

Star moment of the day: ⭐

Today’s ‘star moment’ has to be our Expedition lesson. The children really enjoyed exploring the digestive system in a practical way and certainly learnt lots! Watch this week’s TWIT to see some snap shots! 📸👍🥪🥛🍴

Todays HoWL average is: 2.7

A slight dip in our HoWLs today but again we have had a few absences and I also feel that we have been very honest with our HoWLs today and justifying our scores. Well done for your honesty crew Elmer!

This week’s HoWL target is: 3.0

Today’s HoWL Hero: 

Today’s HoWL Hero was Harley! Harley was praised by Miss Hart and I for ‘working hard’ all day and maintaining a positive attitude towards his learning. This isn’t always easy for Harley but today he absolutely smashed it and as a result produced some great pieces of work and achieved his Gold Targets in EVERY lesson! Well done Harley! An amazing day! Keep it up! 🙌🤩👏👍🖍

Terrific Tuesday! ☀

Star moment of the day: ⭐

Today’s ‘star moment’ has got to be ‘The Write Stuff’ lesson. I was super impressed with how well the children joined in with reading the text, ‘Demon Dentist’. The children enjoyed ‘echo reading’, ’round robin reading’ and ‘missing gap’ reading. Following this the children created some excellent storyboards to show what happened in Chapter 3, their illustrations and captions were great! Great work Crew Elmer! 👏🙌🌟📝✏

Todays HoWL average is: 2.8

Another slightly low score but again we had a few absences today so considering this we performed well as a crew!

This week’s HoWL target is: 3.0

How can we develop this tomorrow? 

All crew members need to support each other in ensuring that everyone is trying their best to get at least a 3.0 for their HoWLs.

Today’s HoWL Hero: 

Today’s HoWL Hero was Sienna! It was a close call but as a crew we voted and Sienna was chosen! Sienna was praised by several crew members for working hard and being kind today. I praised Sienna for blowing me away in reading and The Write Stuff today! Sienna grasped an excellent understanding of the story in both lessons and demonstrated this well! Great work today Sienna! Well done! 🙌🤩👏👍🖍

Memorable Monday! 🐶

Star moment of the day: ⭐

Today’s ‘star moment’ has got to be our visit to the farm on our school field today! It was lovely to see the children’s faces light up as they got to see, touch and hear about a range of different farm animals. The children learnt lots of interesting facts such as that Alpacas have to have their teeth trimmed, they also got to experience what it was like to brush a donkey’s mane, as well as throw toys for a sheepdog! The children had a really fun morning in the sunshine and I am sure that it will be one to remember! 🐶🐰🐔🐾🦌🐏🐑🐐🐇🦆🐓😁

Todays HoWL average is: 2.8

Slightly lower than the expected 3.0 but we did have two crew members absent today and also some children unfortunately let themselves down when it came to the ‘work hard’ and ‘be kind’ HoWLs. We are all hoping that tomorrow will be a better day! 🤞

This week’s HoWL target is: 3.0

Today’s HoWL Hero: 

Today’s HoWL Hero was Frankie! Frankie was praised by several of her crew members for ‘working hard’ and being kind’ inside and outside of the classroom. I also noticed Frankie today for similar reasons. In Maths she was incredibly patient in trying to work out a complex problem, she never gave up and was a great role model for her peers. I was also impressed with her behaviour during our farm visit, as well as how supportive she was to her crew members during our Expedition lesson. A fab day Frankie! Well done! 🙌🤩👏👍🖍

Fabulous FriYAY! 🙌

Star moment of the day: ⭐

Today’s ‘star moment’ has to be our art lesson this morning! Some of the children really blew me away with their Dorothy designs. Children carefully chose appropriate colours and patterns to build up an image of the main character. We have some very talented and creative members of our crew! Well done! 👏

Todays HoWL average is: 2.8

A slight dip in the score to end the week but this is mainly down to some absences and some children not quite working as hard as they could of.

This week’s HoWL target is: 3.0

How can we develop this next week? 

All crew members need to support each other in ensuring that everyone is working hard to allow all crew members to be the smartest that they can be!

Today’s HoWL Hero: 

Today’s HoWL Hero was Laila! Laila was praised by several crew members today for ‘being kind’ which I have to agree with! I also wanted to praise Laila for producing ‘beautiful work’ in art this morning. Her portrait of Dorothy was amazing! She had taken her time to ensure that her design was neat and she also thought about her colour and pattern choices. A piece of work that Laila should be very proud of! Well done! 🙌🤩👏👍🖍
