Crew MW’s Stay and Engage

Thank you to all of our grown ups for coming in to school today to help us with our expedition learning! This week in Crew MW, we have been looking at different ways to help the Gingerbread Man to cross the river. We talked about how using an animal wouldn’t work as they would probably eat him, how he couldn’t swim as he would get all soggy and crumble into pieces, and how we would need to use materials that float. After drawing our designs out, we invited our grown ups in to help us to create them, We loved having you all in to help us bring our designs to life and we think they look amazing! We can;t wait to display them on our corridor display!

Hook Week in nursery!

We have started our Spring expedition here in nursery. It is called “Once Upon a Time” and our guiding question is “Who is hiding in the pages of this book?” During hook week we have read the story ‘The Great Nursery Rhyme Disaster’ and explored the different nursery rhymes in the book. We made a list of nursery rhymes we liked, sung nursery rhymes in class and acted out nursery rhymes in our nursery puppet theatre. Our parents came in to share a story or rhyme with us this Friday and we have had lots of fun making ‘Rhyming stones’ for our outdoor area. Phew! We have even met lots of new friends that started nursery this week and have helped them to settle in.

Well done FS1!

KS1 Santa Dash!

We are so proud of our children in KS1, today, we completed our Santa Dash to raise money for Hallam FM, Cash for Kids. The children were so excited to be ‘heroes’ in their community and help those children who are not as fortunate this Christmas. The children raised an incredible £306 pound in total, including the bake sale earlier in the term. We’d like to thank all of our parents and families for your support, we enjoyed having you with us today. The children were thrilled to have raised so much money. We can’t wait to buy and wrap the gifts to donate 💕 Here’s a couple of sneaky peaks 🎅

RWI Workshops

Thank you to all of our parents who came and engaged in our Read, Write, Inc. workshops today and last week. We loved having you in to talk through how we are teaching your children to read and how you can help them at home! We’re looking forward to having you in to see some phonics in action this year!

Yr 3/4 Family Stay and Engage

It was lovely to see some of our grown ups in this afternoon to participate in an activity with the children. You’ll have seen previously that we have been making knucklebones this week so it was time to teach the parents how to make them. The children led the activity with their parent and between them they decided on some rules for their knucklebones. Thankfully, the children brought along the ones they’d made earlier so they could play a few games. We look forward to seeing more parents joining us next time.

UKS2 family stay and engage

Thank you to all the parents and carers that joined us this afternoon for our Colombian kahoot quiz, coffee and biscuit. It was wonderful to have so many of you in school and to see the children’s smiling faces as they took part in the quiz. Hopefully everyone learnt a few new facts on Colombia!! Children are now really excited for our next few geography lessons where we will focus on Colombia in more detail.
