I spy with my little eye …
Our first reading week challenge has arrived. Around Thorne, hidden in the windows of shops, hairdressers and local businesses, you will find 20 children’s book covers. On each book cover you will spot a number. Over the next week I wonder how many you will find. When you spot one, record the title and the number. To take part in the challenge you will need to record the title of any that you find next to the correct number on the google form below. Don’t worry if you can’t find them all. There will be a small prize for everyone who takes part even if you only submit one or two! If you are lucky enough to spot at least 12 then a bigger prize will be waiting for you! All entries must be submitted by 9am on Friday 21st May.
Over the next week look out on the blog for clues as to where you might find some of the more tricky book covers hidden! If you spot one and want to send me a photo email to [email protected]
We had to take our learning outside today so that we could enjoy the glorious sunshine so we decided to chalk our key stage 1 common exception words in the playground instead of on whiteboards.
I love my reading and spelling group…they are such Motivated Mo’s …great work as always children,

The School telephones will be down for a short while tomorrow (14/5/21) while work is being carried out, please email into school if needed.
The children have been geographers this week and have enjoyed exploring globes, atlases, world maps and learning about the continents.
This was definitely ‘reading for pleasure’ as they chose what they were interested in looking at and shared it with their peers…so lovely to see!
Great work crew!

Year 2 expedition morning video
I am blown away by the fantastic learning that has happened in year 2 this morning. Our second case study for our expedition is geography and the children got a chance to try a range of foods from different countries around the world. They explored the country’s flags and learnt how to say ‘hello’.
They also did some research on the countries to record in their own passports and created a mind map of words to describe the food they tasted.
Some foods were a hit like apples and maple syrup but the olives didn’t go down too well!
Super learning today year 2, it was so lovely to see!

……..take some amazing photographs!
Yesterday year 6 took their photography skills to the woods. They captured different images focusing on perspective, framing and varied angles. We are looking forward to collating their images and ‘showing them off’!
Which images will be published in our year 5/6 book?
