Class 10s first day in Year 3! 😆

What a fantastic first day back Class 10 have had. I am absolutely blown away by their attitude, hard work and kindness. Have you really had 5 weeks off?

We started today by having XP Outdoors with Mr Kershaw and Class 9. We had to build dens after there was a devastating storm that had sunk our ship. As a Crew, we had to make sure we worked together to collect materials and build dens that we could survive it!

After this, Class 10 were introduced to their first week back, mini-guiding question. We are looking into ‘what does Crew mean to me?’ Using think, pair, share, Class 10 were able to have some interesting discussions about how Crew helps them and others. There were so many fantastic ideas that were discussed! We found out that we would be spreading the message of kindness by painting kind messages onto rocks.

After lunch, we then continued our day by looking for rocks on the school field that could be used for our positivity rocks. We found loads and hope that we can inspire the wider community to complete their own, once ours are completed!

Class 11 River Work!

Moving on from our Atlas work, we have been using digital technologies and maps to look within our local area.  We found out that the River Don runs through Thorne at the other side of the motorway through a place called Waterside and that we have a Canal which is called the Stainforth and Keadby Canal.  We Then used a river map of the UK to be able to locate, place and label some of them onto our own blank maps!

E-Safety Day! 💻🎮

Today was e-safety day, where we discussed the importance of being safe if we are using the internet. This included gaming and for those with a phone.

Class 11 came up with lots of sensible answers for how to stay safe, such as speak to an adult, block those who are unkind or quit a game. So we thought we would share that amazing advice through the creation of posters.

KS1 Final Product – update

KS1 were so excited to take receipt of their Summer expedition final product … a set of round-the-world Top Trump recipe cards!

Our expedition explored the question, ‘what does the food we eat tell us about the world around us?’.

The cards look fantastic and we are only disappointed that we can’t share them with you straight away due to the number of KS1 children currently self- isolating. With this in mind, we will launch the product when we return to school in September and offer everyone the opportunity to purchase their very own set.
