KS1 expert visitor

Today we were very lucky to receive a visit from Mr West, our local Baptist Minister. He came to speak to us about harvest time and also to speak about the local heroes who work at the food bank in Askern. It made us think about all of the things that we are grateful and thankful for.

We had a great morning and thank Mr West for spending time with us.

Marvellous Mathematicians

In Year One we have been working really hard in maths. We have been counting sets of objects and representing one more in different ways. We have also been solving problems and working through reasoning activities…..we have been amazing.

Crew Champions

We launched our brand new crew champion awards in our Community Meeting today! It was lovely to hear crew leaders and children talk about each others howls and character traits.

Well done to our first group of recipients including our Miss Tinker!

We are looking forward to next week already!

Reading for pleasure in Crew

A lovely start to our day in Year One, sharing our love of books. Harper said reading this morning has made her “feel happy”, Teddi said his book was “exciting” and Quinn said reading with her friend made her feel “calm”.

Read a book day…

We celebrated the day by sharing lots of lovely stories and making bookmarks in Class 3. We are going to enjoy spending time in our reading area this year exploring many more books.

A great start to the year in Class 3

We have had a lovely Crew Week getting to know each other and having lots of fun together.

We met our Year 6 crew buddies and we shared stories together:

We also made some delicious biscuits to gift to the Year 6 children who were so kind and caring throughout our time with them:

We are looking forward to another fabulous week next week.

Year One Celebration of Learning

Class 3 did an amazing job of sharing their learning from our latest expedition ‘North, East, South, West: Where will your journey take you?’, with their adults from home. It is amazing to see how much they have all grown throughout their time in Year One. Well done everyone.

Walking challenge

This week in our crew sessions we have been promoting walking and discussing the benefits of this. We walk for inclusion, sustainability, health, mindfulness and for friendship. We have loved the sunny mornings, getting outside and walking around our beautiful school grounds then checking out with a word or caption to describe how walking makes us feel. Some of the words used by our Year One children were, ’happy’, ’joyful’, ’calm’, peaceful’, ’lively’ and ’closer to nature’.
