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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!
