On Friday Class 7 had the best day creating Dens for Save the Children. The children worked brilliantly together as a team to build dens and then wrote to a local school to explain why Den Day is so important. The children had lots of fun and thoroughly enjoyed working in their new hideouts (I loved it too!)
As a treat for completing their SATS Year 2 had a visit to Morani’s Gelato this afternoon. It was just what we all neeeded in this hot weather. A huge thank you to the staff at Morani’s and parents that made our visit run smoothly and of course to Mr Butler for treating us! The children have worked really hard this half term and from their faces I think we can definitely say that they enjoyed their ice cream! Keep smiling year 2 we are all really proud of you!
This afternoon both year 2 classes got together to do some amazing collaborative learning about the parts of a castle. The children could choose who they worked with and painted a basic shape of a castle and labelled all the features. We all had lots of fun and we didn’t make a mess on Mr Gravil’s carpet, hoooray!
On Friday, Class 7 were very busy collaborating and critiquing in our maths lesson.
Each time we try peer critique the children just grow in confidence and can undertake the task better than the last. The children were specific, kind and helpful and totally…BRILLIANT! Well done Class 7!
Today the sun shone down on Year 2 at Lincoln Castle. The children had a wonderful day at knight school, walking the castle walls and exploring what it would have been like at a real medieval banquet. The children were a credit to the school with their impeccable behaviour and lovely manners when interacting with the general public.
The trip inspired us all to get stuck into our new theme ‘What secrets can the castle wall tell us?’ and we can’t wait to learn more in the coming weeks.
A big thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who kindly gave up their valuable time to support the children’s learning on the trip.
What an amazing day! KS1 have been so busy working alongside artists from Scrapstore in Hull. Today each class created large scale castles out of scrap materials that would normally be thrown away by factories in the area. These castles will now be used as break out areas in our new fan dabby dozie immersive classrooms. We have learnt that great things can be created with recyclable materials, we worked as a team and had lots of FUN!
Today in Class 7 as part of Arts week, we recreated Paul Klee’s Senecio using oil pastels and water colour. All of our paintings are incredible and they made Mrs Hay and Miss Rhodes smile a lot! We are very exited to display them in our beautiful classroom.
Today we held our ‘Celebrating Children’s Learning Event’ for EYFS and KS1 parents. It was great to see the children leading their learning conversation. Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended today.
