A huge well done & thank you for all the effort made with costumes for our superhero dress-up today – all of the children looked awesome!
Wow! What a fantastic start to our KS1 expedition … What will I do to be a superhero in my community? All of the children looked amazing in their hero dress-up and we ended the day with a protest to parents against litter on our school grounds. Remember – Pick up litter! Use the bins!
Well done everyone.
Today, we have been learning about positions of power and how superheroes use these to do good things in their communities. We talked about what makes a good mayor and then our class mayor candidates presented their pledges and the votes were cast … Cara was voted for our classroom mayor with a huge 6 of the 23 votes! Well done to Cara who swiftly put her new position to good use by encouraging Poppy and Isabelle to help her litter pick on our playground – great job girls!
Today, we began thinking about our new expedition and it’s guiding question: What will I do to be a superhero in my community? We discussed the different job roles of some superheroes we might come across every day – doctors, firefighters and vets for example. Then we enjoyed working in groups to role-play these and perform to one another.
Class 7 have started Year 2 with a bang! We’ve been busy discussing how colour links to our emotions and using this to create beautiful art. We’ve also been busy looking at tally charts and bar graphs too!
All of the children have had a fantastic return and it’s been lovely to see them all enjoying being back with their friends.
A special shout out today for Katie and Harry who independently critiqued one another’s handwriting, leading to immediate improvement … Super self-led learning guys! Well done 🙂
This morning, KS1 celebrated the end of sports week with a mini sports day event. Even though we couldn’t share this with spectators this year, the cheering was still spectacular and the racing highly skilled … Well done to all involved!
This afternoon, Year 2 have gone football crazy for sports week … skills practice and a mini tournament have put a smile on everybody’s face 🙂
KS1 were so excited to take receipt of their Summer expedition final product … a set of round-the-world Top Trump recipe cards!
Our expedition explored the question, ‘what does the food we eat tell us about the world around us?’.
The cards look fantastic and we are only disappointed that we can’t share them with you straight away due to the number of KS1 children currently self- isolating. With this in mind, we will launch the product when we return to school in September and offer everyone the opportunity to purchase their very own set.
Sports week has got off to a great start for the Year 2 children who are still at school. Monday saw us practising skills such as balancing, jumping and throwing followed by an exciting game of bench dodgeball in the hall. Today has been all about cricket with skills practice this morning. Unfortunately it was just too hot to play cricket this afternoon so we opted for a water game in the shade instead!
We hope all our friends at home are staying cool … We miss you!
Check out all the fab things we’ve been up to today!
