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.

Silent Conversation

This week we completed a silent conversation where we thought carefully about how we might have felt, what we would have heard and seen if we were about to take part in the march we have been reading about in our core text – Let the Children March.

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!

Mystery Reader 📚

This week our mystery reader was our very own Miss Tunney! She shared with us her favourite book – Giraffes Can’t Dance 🦒

What a treat! 💕

Roald Dahl Day 2023

This morning in crew we celebrated Roald Dahl Day. We checked in by sharing our favourite Roald Dahl books and characters. Next we played matching pairs with some of our favourite characters like Willy Wonka, the BFG and Mr Twit. We ended our crew session by listening to an extra from Matilda and we loved listening to Roald Dahl’s Little Red Riding Hood – it definitely wasn’t the ending we were expecting!!

Mindful Monday

We started our week with some yoga. Kate said it made her feel ready for the week, Ava said it was a little bit tiring and Henry said it made him ready to learn!

Great job everyone,

The Paper Dolls

After some of us listened to The Paper Dolls we decided we wanted to make our very own paper dolls. We talked about what kinds of things connect our crew just like the paper dolls!! I was really impressed with everyones resilience because we soon discovered making paper dolls is fiddly business!

National Read a Book Day

To celebrate National Read a Book day we had our very first Mystery Reader! Olivia’s Mummy came in and read The Paper Doll’s by Julia Donaldson – we absolutely loved joining in with the song! We already can’t wait to make our very own paper dolls in Crew tomorrow.

We can’t wait to find out who our mystery reader will be next Wednesday!
