Today, LKS2 launched their final products for both the Spring and Summer Expeditions. Thanks to our trusty sales people, they expertly sold our CDs for the Expedition Why should we protect our beautiful planet? They also were able to sell our sweets that we made for the Expedition answering Why is sugar not sweet? The sweets were freshly packed this morning and we hope that you enjoyed them!
A huge thanks goes to the many parents that turned up and were able to raise money for different charities. It was so cool to see and there were so many lovely vibes, smiley faces and excited children. We will inform you of the money raised in due course! Thanks also to Mrs Fox for taking photos of the event!
There are still plenty of CDs and sweets left that can be bought for £3 and £2 respectively, so be sure to grab yours!
Tonight, we have been blown away by how amazing our pupils truly are. Our hearts are really bursting with so much pride. As part of the XP Climate Conference, Carcroft was invited, along with other Trust schools, for the very first event including primary schools.
We were lucky to witness some fantastic speeches, as Year 3 and 4 pupils spoke along with high school pupils in front of about 200-300 people! This did not daunt our very brave pupils, Chloe, Honey, Lilly and Tommy, as they spoke beautifully about the Expedition they completed in the Spring Term. We answered the Guiding Question Why should we protect our beautiful planet? Their confidence shone through as they spoke so clearly and incredibly well as they spoke about their learning and final product – a charity song. We could not have been prouder!
After premiering the song video and listening to a question and answer with some expert visitors, it was time to sell our CDs. Luckily, we had some fantastic sales people who walked around confidently, persuasively and persistently. They have raised a boat load of money for the charity, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation. Without their kindness and can-do attitude, I don’t think we would have raised nearly as much. Most importantly, the manners shown were impeccable whether or not items were sold. A lot of people are leaving XP with lighter pockets tonight thanks to your efforts!
Tomorrow, LKS2 will be selling the charity singles tomorrow for £3, in order to raise more money for the Foundation. It would be great if we could raise even more money. LKS2 will also be selling sweets as part of the current Expedition. See more information below about the CDs:
Finally, we would just like to say a massive well done to Tommy, Chloe, Honey and Lilly again. You guys absolutely smashed it and represented yourselves and Carcroft impeccably. We could not be prouder! A big thanks as well to the parents of these children as well for bringing them – without that, we could not have had as much success!
What a great start to our new Year 3/4 classes. After a bit of settling in, we have been able to complete some Crew building activities. We built spaghetti and marshmallow towers – the aim was to build the highest structure we could with the same amount of items. This has helped us feel more comfortable with each other!
Throughout the week, so far, we have also been looking at the book Small Things. We have been having many discussions about feelings and worries, in order to help settle us. These interesting discussions have been a fantastic way of getting to know our new Crews and how we can help them feel better when they aren’t quite feeling themselves!
Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the week, where we will share our sketches of London monuments. This is preparing us for our new Expedition in Autumn! 👀👀
Children will go round the carousel of activities in their teams to try and earn the most points.
At the end of the sports day, children will sit in their teams on the grass for the winner to be announced, and parents can spectate this on the muga pitch. Children will then walk past for a last goodbye before entering back into school. The gate will be opened for parents at 11:30am.
There will be a barrier that parents are not allowed past, in order to keep our children safe and keep the activities moving.
Carcroft was lucky to have a visit from the second fastest man in Britain – James Dasaolu. We were lucky to hear about the journey James took to reach the top of his sport and even compete at two Olympic Games.
James was very inspiring as he spoke about his lows and how it motivated him to reach the highs, which led to him setting the second fastest time in British history for the 100m. He ran a staggering 9.91 seconds, which was the equivalent of 25mph.
The children listened amazingly well and were hanging on James’ every word. They loved asking a variety of questions and some were unique, which James had never been asked before. After the the questions, each year group was lucky to have a circuit training session with James. He definitely put Years 1 to 6 through their paces.
We will be handing out the gold, silver and bronze awards when we receive them in due course. This should be soon.
