Reception Hook Week

This week the children have been excited to hook into their new expedition! We are excited to answer the question ‘What happens where the sea meets the shore?’ We have have enjoyed creating an under the sea look to our classrooms and are looking forward to talking more about our seaside and holiday experiences next week! Postcards and photographs are welcome!

Here are some of our moments and beautiful work caught on camera!

Supporting Motor Neurone Disease Day 2024

Jake, in Year 6, approached the school and his crew with wanting raise awareness around MND. Being a big fan of Leeds Rhinos, he has been inspired by Rob Burrows’ bravery and the superb effort of his ex-team mate, Kevin Sinfield. As a crew, we have planned a MND day for Friday 19th April for the whole school.

We are encouraging all children to wear something white, yellow or blue for a small donation that will go directly to the MND association. We will also be holding a coffee and cake morning in our school hall, all of our parents and carers are welcome to join us from 8:45. Jake has also secured a fantastic raffle with many excellent prizes which includes:

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!

Reception Celebration of Learning

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended our COL yesterday! The children were super excited to share their learning from the stories they had explored across all 3 case studies. The children showcased their work beautifully teaching the adults how to sing and sign ‘Goldilocks and the 3 bears!’ The children presented books to our day care early years settings and to Jenny from Thorne library. We are so proud of how much money the children have raised to buy books for children to enjoy and to share their learning with the wider world. The money will also support the development of new reading areas and our expeditionary curriculum! Thank you to all adults who kindly donated to help the children raise a whopping £1800 pounds!

The children enjoyed time in their classrooms with their adults taking part in many of our learning activities from this term. Here are some of our snapshots.
