Crew Dutton – Summer Term Hook Week

Wow! What a fantastic and busy week it has been in Class 15. After a couple of days to settle back in, we have ended on a real high – with EVERYBODY in the class achieving a 4 in their HoWLs for two days in a row :). Of course, the children were keen to celebrate this and we have enjoyed milkshake and sweet treats together, as well as some extra break time to enjoy playing dodgeball. The cherry on the top? 100% attendance ALL week – well done!

As part of our immersion into our new expedition topic, we have been learning all about the ancient Egyptians – reading facts, creating our own pharaoh-themed portraits, creating papyrus coloured paper, using hieroglyphics and even making our very own headdresses … check out our photos and I’m sure you’ll agree they look amazing!

I can’t wait to see how next week can top this week … and now we know everyone is capable of a 4 on the HoWLs tracker, the standard is really set high for amazing learning behaviours all round 🙂 Let’s keep it up!

Best wishes for everyone’s well-earned weekend,

Spectacular Spoons!

I can’t believe the amount of wonderful character spoons we had fetched into school as part of our World Book Day competition! The creativity and effort that has gone into each and every one is amazing!

The Learning Council judged the spoons this morning but it was such a hard choice that we have ended up with 8 winners instead of 4!

Watch this space to see the winning spoons tomorrow …

Here are just some of the fabulous characters!

Here’s to another fantastic day tomorrow to round off our week.

Year 5 – A special visit to help us think a little more carefully about racism & being kind

This afternoon, we were very fortunate to have a special visit from a Y5 pupil’s parent who shared with us the history of racism and racist language, and who encouraged us all to think a little more carefully about how the things we say and do can impact on others. Thank you to Martin for sharing an important message with us and for reminding us of the importance of being kind to one another, even if we are different in any kind of way!
