The children who participated in the Doncaster Rovers ‘Play on the pitch’ tournament have made me extremely proud today. Not only did they play excellent football but kindness, determination and teamwork was demonstrated throughout both teams. In class we talk about how important crew is and why it is important to be part of a crew; today 16 children used those skills to be, frankly, incredible role models.

Both teams played dazzling football and really stuck to the task. Green Top team 1 managed to reach the semi-finals of the tournament, only conceding 1 goal in 7 matches (placed 3rd out of 40 teams)

A special mention to Louis-John who played as our target man striker and scored a hattrick in one game.

Thank you Y5/6 footballers and to Kelly Jackson-Powell at Doncaster Rovers for inviting us to this event.

Fantastic fish paintings!

Class 5 have produced some amazing fish paintings this afternoon. They drew the fish from watching a video and then used wooden dowel and cotton buds to fill them in with different colours. They are fantastic!

 

Well done class 5!

Leeds University!

Some of the Year 5 children are taking part in a university programme and to kick start the programme they enjoyed a launch trip to Leeds University! The children enjoyed participating in a tutorial led by a PHD student, a lecture in the lecture theatre, and a tour around the Leeds University campus! They thoroughly enjoyed their day and couldn’t believe how big the campus was!

 

Oil Pastel Practise!

As part of diversity week we are drawing our own self portraits and using oil pastels for the colours. We have enjoyed practising with the oil pastels today and have tried blending, mixing colours and creating tone and definition in our pictures. I am so excited to see the finished product!

 

Great Reading!

Class 13 completed their reading activity around the room this week and they looked at extracts from the book Mina by David Almond. Mina is a character from Skellig so it was really fun to find out more about her!

The children coached and supported each other through the questions and worked really hard to retrieve information from the text.

 

 

 

Missing Angles

Continuing from our protractor work – Class 13 enjoyed problem solving by finding missing angles on straight lines, in triangles, and around a point. The children were all so proud of their achievements and were real Stickability Stans! Some groups had to be Choosing, Checking, Changing Charlies to find their mistakes and correct their work! They enjoyed loop cards, tarisias and some even enjoyed working out on windows!
