Over the last two days, we have focused on mindfulness and meditation as part of looking after our well-being. In Crew, each child have completed their own individual part of a colouring jigsaw that we are going to piece together and display in our classroom to show how togetherness is important and that each crew member is a piece to our own crew jigsaw!

This week in Class 16 we have been busy presenting our expedition ‘How is evolution important to existence?’ to other schools in the trust. I would like to give a huge shoutout to Dylan, Alex, Brendan, Lily and Angel who presented their expedition work to Y5 children at Carcroft Primary. Mr Gerrard and his crew were blown away by your learning and were very impressed with your presentation skills and very kindly critiqued our product. Here are a few examples they shared:
We notice – That you spoke clearly
We praise – The resilience and determination of everyone who spoke and shared their learning.
We praise – How prepared you were for your presentation and how amazing it looked.
Well done once again for an amazing expedition Class 16!
Today Year 2 have listened to a story called Manjhi moves a mountain.
It is all about a man from India who lives a long way from any health care so he single handedly began digging a tunnel straight through the mountain. This allowed his village much easier access to schooling and health care. It took him 20 years to do and we discussed how he was selfless, kind, determined and resilient.
This led us on to a discussion about the differences between England and India and one of those was the primary religion in each country.
We learnt all about Ganesh, the Hindu God of luck, good fortune and kindness. The story says that he has large ears so that he can listen carefully to what people tell him and a small mouth so that he speaks less and listens more.
Here are some of the examples of how he might have looked…I think they’re fantastic! Well done!

A group of Year 6 girls have been challenging themselves in the kitchen. Every Sunday they join a zoom call, set the challenge and the timer and off they go! Every Monday Mrs Overson, Mr Taylor and Miss Knowles get to try these delicious treats and give them feedback! The teachers are blown away by the quality of their baking and are put to shame as they could never bake to this quality! Check out some of their sweet treats:
Week 1: cake!
Week 2: biscuits!
Week 3: Easter treats!
I’m sure you’ll agree that their creations are amazing and I can definitely tell you that they taste awesome!!!!
Mindfulness was the name of the game in Crew Rodgers this morning as we focused on our breathing exercises to be present in the moment. We then took our meditation to the playground to focus on what we could see, hear, smell and feel. What a lovely calm start to the week!
In crew Shaw this morning we have been discussing mindfulness and what it means.
The children then took their mindful task outside, using their senses, sound, touch, sight and smell.
