KS1 Community Crew Meeting

Another fantastic week this week to celebrate!! KS1 have had a smashing time on Numbots recently and have taught Miss Rodgers some new types of metal as they’ve flown through the steps. Lots of lovely shoutouts for our stewardship this week too, particularly for working hard to take care of our jumpers and cardigans as the weather has got a bit warmer (fingers crossed it stays that way).
Big well done to our HOWL point winners this week, lots of hard work and quality craftsmanship from our children, we love it when you know you can be proud of your work! Crew Stone won the most attendance this week, it’s great to see how proud the children were to win Paddington the attendance bear. Well done guys!!!

Finally, big well done to our Crew Champions this week in KS1 who have been following all of our HOWLs, improving in their learning, showing respect and quality craftsmanship!

KS1 Community Crew Assembly

Some huge shoutouts this week, starting with our Crew Champions who have shone this week, big well done for your hard work and we hope to see lots more of this. Who will be stood up there next week?!

There were SO many reading certificates this week too. Particular shoutout to Arnie for getting the highest reading certificate yet and also Ezra for getting his sparkly pencil for beautiful handwriting! Loads of other wonderful people to celebrate, for their hard work on TTRockstars and Numbers, for their stewardship this week and for our HOWL point winners too! Keep it up KS1, we love to celebrate your fantastic achievements.

KS1 visit to the Pentecostal Church

We have spent a very exciting morning visiting the Pentecostal Church where we were treated to a live reading from a real life Cbeebies television star of one of her books. We sang songs and played games and generally had a wonderful time. The children behaved beautifully both on the walk to and from the Church and while listening to the story and we are all very, very proud of you.

A huge thanks to Pastor Kevin for inviting us.

Diverse Doncaster – Where do I belong? KS1 extended study menu and parents overview.

Today we began our learning for our new expedition. Please find below links to the overview of what we will be learning in the summer term and extended study menu’s for Y1 and Y2. There is no obligation to complete all of the homework, but past experience has shown that studying themes at home linked to our expedition has helped the children to consolidate the learning they have done in class. Plus they LOVE sharing their new knowledge with you. Don’t forget to send the work into school or email photographs so we can celebrate their achievements.

Class 7 found a time capsule!

Yesterday afternoon class 7 have been on a clue finding treasure hunt, answering lots of questions to find the word ‘office’. So off we headed to find our treasure, and what a wonderful treasure we found! At the office, there was a time capsule, from 2000!

Back in the classroom we circled up to find what was inside. We read letters from students at Green Top 24 years ago, we looked at photos, found a bobble head of David Beckham, a 24 year old Pokémon card and lots of other awesome things. We discussed the similarities and differences between what we found from 24 years ago, compared to things that we play with, like and learn about now! I wonder what children in another 24 years would think!?

KS1 Artists

We are so proud of the artwork produced by the children in KS1 during this terms expedition. The children put lots of effort into their work. First the children sketched their animal. Then they painted the background and their chosen animal using watercolour paints. Next they edged their painting with water colour pencils and finally they embellished their picture using collage skills. It was lovely to spend quality time with the children teaching them the different skills required to produce their artwork. The children completed each stage in small groups which gave us a lovely opportunity to spend time together chatting away as we spent hours building up our pictures over the past few weeks! The children have demonstrated a lot of pride in their work and so they should! The results are fabulous.

We are so proud of you all and hope your artwork will remind you of all the fabulous memories made during our expedition this term.

Please take a photograph of yourself with your framed artwork and email them to your class teacher! We can’t wait to see where you put them!

*** Friday 22nd March 2024 ***

Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be holding an art gallery in school on Friday 22nd March. We will have their art work ready to share with you on display in frames. This is a fantastic experience for the children to see and share their art work in this kind of setting.

Key stage 1

Key stage 1 will have their art work set up in their classrooms and also have time slots to have a workshop with reptile rendezvous and their animal guests.

The time slots are as follows:

You are welcome to come and celebrate the children’s work with them at any time between 4 and 5 but if you are around for your child’s class time slot with reptile rendezvous, then this would be fantastic too!

Year 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 will have their art work in the hall set up in an exhibition ready for you to view anytime between 4 and 5pm. There is also the opportunity to use the green screen and have photos taken with polar bear backgrounds.

Every visitor

There will be canapes made by Michael, in the hall for all guests to enjoy. We really hope to see as many parents and children as possible at our first ever Green Top Art Exhibition. The children’s art work will be available to buy on the night (as well as any pre-orders that have been made) at a cost of £10. Thank you as always for your support with the children and their education…they have all worked extremely hard to produce good quality art work and can’t wait to share it with you!
