Titans Rugby 

image004Year Three spent a day with members of the Titans Rugby Club. The children had a wonderful day. They learnt about healthy living and eating and made their own healthy pizza. The players also talked to the children about having a positive body image.
The  children were also taught simple  basic rugby moves and took part in team games.
The players sent an email to the headteacher to say how well behaved and enthusiastic the children were, so we are very proud of you all for representing our school so well. The players were also impressed that the teachers and teaching assistants joined in as well…

Y3 Tesco Visit

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 10.21.13On Monday, 9th November Class 3 went on a school trip to Tesco in Rotherham.  We had a fantastic day looking around behind the scenes at a busy supermarket.  We spent time looking at the bakery, the deli bar and the fishmongers before spending time looking at the fridge and the freezers finding out about the temperatures and the reasons why they are that temperature.  After that, we were able to try out different foods from the bakery, deli bar and the fresh fruit and vegetable aisle.   Then we spent some time in the community kitchen where we made a pizza and crumble.  The children enjoyed chopping and mixing the ingredients and then eating what they had made. It was a great day enjoyed by all the pupils and teachers.

Year 3 are learning all about ‘Mighty Metals’. 

Part of our learning involves investigating different forces that act upon objects.  This week we have been looking closely at friction.

We found out from our experiment that rubber had the greatest amount of friction and fabric had the least friction.

Pirate Day

Ahoy! On Wednesday 3rd June 2015, Pirate Ron visited our school to teach us about pirates. We had such a fun morning learning new fantastic facts and asking questions for Pirate Ron to answer. Later in the morning, we watched a puppet show of a pirate story which was really funny! In the afternoon, some of our parents came to help us make pirate puppets. We listened carefully to instructions and used paper plates, newspaper, tissue paper and collage materials to create amazing puppets! We can’t wait to use these in class to tell each other pirate stories!

 

Wriggle and Crawl

Class two visited Potteric Carr Nature Reserve to look at minibeasts and other wildlife in their natural habitats.

We had a great day pond dipping, grass sweeping, leaf littering and bird watching!

Year One and Year Two  Christmas Production

On Tuesday the children in year one and year two put on their Christmas production of ‘Baubles’. The children had worked really hard to learn all the words and songs and they put on a wonderful performance.

We were all really proud of them

As part of our ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’ topic, Class 2 visited Conisbrough Castle.

We had a great day exploring the bailey and the keep and found out what it would have been like to live there 850 years ago. The children enjoyed a guided tour, hearing tales about Lord Hamelin and Lady Isabel and dressing up in medieval outfits.

French Day in KS1

To celebrate the Tour de France, Class One and Two have been busy learning about all things Yorkshire and French!

This included tasting different foods, locating famous landmarks and learning some traditional French songs.

We turned our Yorkshire classrooms into French cafes and invited parents and carers in to sample some fabulous French food.

Thank you to everyone who came along!
