KS1 superstars!

We have had an amazing week in KS1. Lots to celebrate…

Lots of people have been working so hard in their learning, have shown that they are kind crew members and have been making good choices. We have had some awesome readers, getting or reader of the week as well as lots of reading certificates that have been achieved too!

Crew Rodgers and Crew Good won joint attendance this week, with 100% so get to keep Paddington and Jemima for the week! I wonder who will get Paddington or Jemima next week?

We are all so proud of the children! Thank you to everyone for continuing to work hard, get smart and be kind! Keep up the hard word, and maybe it could be YOU next week?

Shared reading

In expedition today we all showed some fantastic decoding and listening skills when we completed a shared read about jellyfish. I listened to lots of children read the text and was really impressed by the improvement in their fluency.

Super lesson today guys, well done!

Problem solving

In maths this afternoon the children worked in pairs or small groups to read maths problems and talk through their methods of how to work it out.

I saw some fantastic conversations and coaching taking place. Keep up this super work!

Animal makaton

Class 8 were so lucky today that Mrs Woolley came in to teach the children some makaton signs for a variety of animals which linked beautifully to our expedition.

They played games, worked in teams and practiced the signs.

Great work crew!

Year 2 xp outdoors

Today was the first session of year 2 having their XP outdoors lesson. I can see lots of smiles in the photos and the children were very eager to share what they got up to so I can’t wait to see what they get up to this term.

Please remember to bring suitable outdoor clothing on a Tuesday. The next year 2 session will be on Tuesday 1st February. Thank you to all parents and carers for supporting us with this great opportunity for the children.

Features of a text

Class 8 worked in pairs today to unpick the features that they need to include in their non-chronological report writing.

The pride and presentation they have in their work at the moment is fantastic to see. I have seen such a huge improvement.

Well done guys!
