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!

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.

Thank you to our adults for coming to celebrate with us, we hope you agree that we have a wonderful crew in KS1.

KS1 Story Club

Another fantastic story club this week. We enjoyed reading about Winnie the Witch celebrating the Chinese New Year and we found out about the different animals which represent each year in the Chinese tradition. Chinese New Year is going to be celebrated on 10th February this year and it will the year of the dragon! We also enjoyed making ourselves some Chinese lanterns just like we saw in our story. Well done boys and girls!

KS1 Community Crew Meeting – 1/2/2024

On Thursday, KS1 came together again to celebrate all things learning and HoWLs! Another fantastic week with lots of certificates and shout outs for those children achieving great things in all areas of learning and development. A big thank you to the parents and carers who could join us for the crew champion award and a big well done to Crew Hilton / Dutton on their hat trick … an impressive 3 weeks at the top of the attendance leaderboard – who will it be next week?

KS1 Community Crew Meeting

On Thursday, KS1 gathered once again with students, teachers and parents/carers for our weekly Community Crew meeting. We shared our recent learning, celebrated shout outs and praises, and gave special recognition for our Crew Champions … as well as enjoy singing our crew songs! A huge well done to everybody for a fantastic learning week in KS1, and especially to all those who received special mentions and certificates – keep on being fantastic!

Crew Hilton / Dutton were, for the second week running, crowned 1st place in attendance. Can they make it a hat-trick and keep Paddington the Bear for a 3rd consecutive week? Only time (and the class registers!) will tell …

KS1 Story Club

Another Thursday and another fantastic story to explore! This week we have read Tadpole’s Promise, which tells of the unlikely romance and unfortunate demise of a tadpole and caterpillar.

The children have enjoyed thinking of their own unlikely animal pairing, making use of their new learning about animals from different countries and their habitats. What fabulous drawings to illustrate your own romantic tales, KS1 – well done!

KS1 Story Club

In story club today, we have enjoyed reading the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers which tells the tale of an unexpected friendship between a boy and a penguin from the South Pole.

As KS1 are learning about different animals from different places in the world, this was the perfect starting point for us to imagine and draw ourselves with our own animal friend. Children followed the style of Oliver Jeffers and drew themselves with an animal of their choice from one of the places we have studied so far.

Well done boys and girls – a great start to our new after-school club!

Class 7 – Superstar Carer Award!

A huge well done goes to our very kind and caring Ava, who was so enthralled by our recent work with local care homes that she has encouraged her family to get involved too. At the weekend, Ava went back to visit the care home with her family to spread some Christmas cheer and she was gifted this lovely card made and signed by the residents there. Well done, Ava – what a superstar carer you are. We are all very proud of your kindness and compassion – just what Christmas is all about!
