KS1 Arts and Crafts club

Arts and crafts club managed to find some sun yesterday! The children sat out in the sun for the chance to draw something that they could see, before we headed back in to colour them in. They focused on all the little details around us and worked so hard to create beautiful pieces of art work! Hopefully the sun will return next week so we can get back outside.

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!

Class 8 shared reading

We spoke a lot today about how to read with a partner and being engaged in the lesson and the children in my reading group were on fire! Great inferences of the text today and lovely, fluent reading. Keep it up Class 8!

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.

Crew Shaw Target setting

In crew yesterday, the children set their own target for what they wanted to work on. They had a choice of what they felt they needed the most practice with and then they independently worked on this area…it was great to see them being so pro-active and leaders of their own learning.

Class 8 are geographers!

Class 8 have started their geography case study this week. They have been exploring maps, atlases and globes and discussing the different features. They found lots of keys, scales and images that needed to be unpicked to help us to understand the information. The children then presented some of their information that they found in their groups to the rest of the class. It was great to see them grappling together.

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.
