Lampard4legends!

On Wednesday Year 5 and 6 recreated their gum boot dance to help secure Frank Lampard for the Eve’s Trust charity football match, in which Mr Mumby will be taking part.  The children all wore a ‘Frank Lampard’ mask and took part in a series of chants.  We can’t wait to see the video, which we hope will help raise money for this cherished charity.

The children enjoyed bacon sandwiches for breakfast as a treat this morning at breakfast club a celebration that the testing week is over. Next the Y6 children will be focus on their writing assessments and Y2 begin their SATs.

 

the great debate this week has been what sauce to have on our bacon bap? Ketchup or hp?

A brilliant time was had by members of the Green Top KS2 Book Club today at the Doncaster Book Award Finale, held at the Dome.We have been reading, blogging and voting for the books all year and today was when we discovered the winners!DBA5 Doncaster Book Award

 

 

Arriving early, we had time to practise making lots of noise with our home-made shakers and then the fun started…….

Liz Millions, an illustrator and writer, gave us a very entertaining crash course into how to draw imaginary creatures like dragons and unicorns. Starting with a potato or baked bean shape, she gave us tips on how to create fabulous cartoon characters. Just by changing the eyes and the mouth, she demonstrated how to completely transform a picture – and all done with her unique, hilarious sense of humour!

Joshua (call him Josh) Seigal was up next! He entertained us with his brilliant, interactive poems about chicken, his dog and how he ‘doesn’t like poetry’! We learnt lots about rhythm and how to perform poetry and it was great how he got us all joining in. He was then kind enough to sign our books and pose for a photograph with us!

In the afternoon, after a second ‘slot’ by Liz Millions (Teddy Bears and Pirates this time!), we were delighted to welcome Philip Ardagh, the’ 2 Metres Tall, bearded, international best-selling children’s author’ to the stage. His wacky style had us howling with laughter – especially when he told us the story of his second-hand (sorry ‘second-bottom) pants that he was forced to wear.

Using our critique phrases ‘I notice, I praise and I wonder’ the children picked out their great work and identified next steps in learning. We have another session this afternoon for KS2, with Reception to Y2 on Friday.PE2 PE3 PE4
