KS1’s Ocean Adventure

Children had an amazing time learning about the oceans, life in the oceans and sharks during their visit to The Deep today. 

We took a deep dive under the oceans in one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world 🌎 🐠 🦈🦑 🦀 

We enjoyed a fantastic workshop exploring creatures great and small which reside in the oceans. We also modelled some diving equipment – our teacher couldn’t believe how smart we were with the background knowledge we’ve already acquired within a week of launching our expedition. We worked hard which in turn made sure we extended our knowledge of the oceans. Our crews had had a wonderful time. They children were a credit to the school 😊Keep on eye out for TWITP for some more snaps of the day 🦈 

KS1 Visit to The Deep tomorrow 13.01.2022

Years 1 and 2 are visiting The Deep tomorrow, in Hull.

The coach will leave school promptly in the morning, we are aiming for 8.50am once we have all children in school and registered. Classroom doors will open at 8.25am in the morning to enable us to ensure the children are ready in time.

Please note, children MUST come to school in uniform, including their red / jumper cardigan. Children can wear comfortable, sensible footwear, for example, trainers or boots. Children who are on school dinners do not need a packed lunch, this is provided by school. The children have chosen their sandwich option.

When the coach returns to school we will take the children back to their Crew base to dismiss. This will ensure that all children are kept safe, as you will appreciate dismissing children from the coach onto a busy playground and close to a main road is far from ideal, so please be patient with us. Your children’s safety is our priority.

Home Learning

So many of our crew have been so excited by their home learning this week! Well done to those children who’ve completed so many of the tasks, we’ve seen some fantastic progress, especially on Times Tables Rockstars 🎸

Homework sheets will be sent home on a Monday, please return these on a Friday. A simple tick on the bottom column for reading will show us that you’ve read with your child for 10mins a day, this could be using one of the apps which are on the home learning menu, a favourite book or even a reading challenge you set them!

We use all of the apps in school so the children are familiar with them 😊

Keep up the great work everyone!

PE Day Update

Crew Godley’s PE days are on a Wednesday and a Friday for this half term 😊

Can all parents and carers please ensure children are in the correct uniform for PE. We do have spare PE kits for those children who may need one. Our PE kit is as follows:

Plain dark tracksuit bottoms or leggings (shorts in summer)   – White / Red t-shirt / with or without a logo  – Red jumper/or sweatshirt hoodie with or without logo  – Plain black trainers / plain black pump style shoes (for girls).

Thank you for your continued support 😊

Welcome back KS1!

KS1 Crews were so excited to launch their new expeditions this week, ‘The Circle of Life – How will what I do today impact the world tomorrow?’

The children were hooked into their learning by working together as artists and sculptors to create their own own ocean dioramas, craft sea creatures and participated in a virtual author workshop to learn how to create some of the beautiful illustrations that we found in our core text ‘The Blue Giant’. We have some budding artists! Keep you eyes peeled for the finished ocean dioramas on Monday!

This week we visit The Deep, in Hull. We can’t wait to go on an ocean adventure!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone 😊

KS1 New Expedition

This half term the children will be starting their new expedition – Circle of Life: How will what I do today affect the world tomorrow?

As part of this expedition the children will be completing three case studies:

  • Case Study 1: Science – Animals and their lifecycles
  • Case Study 2: Geography – Weather, seasons, seas and continents
  • Case Study 3 : Art – Recycled sculpture.

Next week the children will be visiting The Deep. Please could we ask that all consents have been completed and lunches ordered. Please contact the office team if you have any queries.

As always, we would love to hear from any local experts. We would really like to hear from anybody who has knowledge of birds, as part of the Big School’s Birdwatch, animals or any geographers.

Throughout the expedition, you can visit the expedition website to see what the children have been learning about and seeing pictures and examples of the completed work.

If your child is isolating, this week’s work can be found by clicking this link. There are some hook activities to complete along with the children in school.

Crew Godley’s Weekly Round-Up

What a busy week we’ve had! We have worked hard to develop our art skills, working alongside Natasha Clarke, a very talented, local artist. She helped us to perfect our sketching and painting skills ready for our final products. We had so much fun!

We have also been working hard to develop our Crew building skills by solving some tricky challenges. Our favourite one this week was creating ‘The Leaning Tower of Feetza’. Who could build the tallest tower using only our shoes! It was so much fun! We have some true leaders in Crew Godley.

In our expeditionary writing this week we have been researching the inspirational, Wilma Rudolph. We found out what an incredible woman she was, who never gave up despite so many challenges in her young life. We were blown away by her determination and the fact that she had 21 siblings! Nearly the size of our Crew!

Crew Godley 19.11.2021

We have really tried to focus on our HoWL score this week in all 3 areas (work hard, get smart and be kind). Our crew have been determined to make sure we are making the right choices to show what beautiful work we can produce when we are focused. Slight disappointment this week when we reflected on our HoWLS as some crew members have found it tricky this week to keep on top of those 3’s. However, I would like to praise those children in Crew Godley who have achieved the golden 4’s this week! Keep up the great work I am so proud of you 😊

We have continued our work in art, by continuing to focus on the work of Quentin Blake, we have critiqued our work this week and I was blown away by the maturity of the children, they had some very thought notices, praises and wonders.

Over the next week, we will be creating our own heroes in the style of Quentin Blake. We can’t wait! We are ever so excited to be lucky enough to have a visit from Natasha Clarke. She is a talented local artist, who is going to help the crews create portraits of famous heroes as part of our finished product. You can see some of her amazing artwork here.

In maths, we have been investigating 10’s, identifying ten more and ten less. Using our equipment has really helped us and the crew were eager to extend this in their morning tasks 🔟

Have a great weekend everyone 😊
