Swimming with plastic!

The Year 6 children have been well and truly hooked into our new cycle of writing! Today, they had the opportunity to swim with plastic at Armthorpe baths to take on the perspective of sea creatures, swimming in our plastic filled seas.
I am so impressed with the discussions and suggestions the children were having and how hooked in they were to their learning. The children reflected during the session and it was so powerful to see how this experience has impacted them. I can’t wait to read the awesome poetry that I know is going to come from today’s hook!
Well done Year 6, you have made us very proud!

Fabulous free books!

Fantastic free books yesterday! Remember to complete the Golden Token for another free book! Please fill it in and take it to the library to receive your 2nd free book. Keep reading and remember the winners get a Nandos!

Crew shout outs!


Well done to above children who all received a shout out in today’s crew assembly! The top photo shows the children who have earned the most coins on TT Rockstars. The following photo shows our super spellers followed by our top readers and then the children who have been voted by their peers for following the Plover pledge. The final photo shows the children who have improved the most in their arithmetic. Another shoutout to Lucas from 6B and Jack Y from 5K who are not photographed!
Well done everyone! Keep it up! Let’s see if we can have new faces up there next week!

Family learning

Years 5&6 had so much fun this afternoon! They participated in a quiz on their learning so far. Then, they worked with their friends to make a planter out of a plastic bottle to make a pretty area outside on our playground. Finally, the children created posters to encourage others to save our planet.
The children worked so hard and there were lots of happy, smiling children!
Well done 5/6! Thank you to all parents/cadets who came today, we hope you enjoyed it as much as the children!

Please bring in your plastic bottles!

Please can we ask that parents/carers save any plastic bottles you may have and pass them on to 5/6 teachers. After half-term, years 5&6 children will be going to Armthorpe baths to swim with plastic as part of our writing hook- from the perspective of a sea creature swimming in our seas (letters will be going out shortly).

We need as many bottles as possible to make it as realistic as we can.
Thanks in advance,
the 5 & 6 team 🙂

Crew celebrations!

A huge well done to the above children who were all given a shout out today in crew assembly.

The top five photos are our top spellers from each class achieving a: bronze, silver or gold award today.

The next photo is of those children who are the top readers in their classes; they have read the most to an adult at home and are in with a fantastic chance of having dinner at Nandos next half term.

The next photo is the children who were nominated by their crews for a crew shout out for following the Plover pledge and lastly the bottom photo is of those who have improved their arithmetic scores by the most.

Well done 5/6! Remember to: keep practising your spellings from the sheets you have been given. Our next test will be spellings 16-30 on your 3/4 sheets. Also, keep up the awesome work of reading to adults at home! It really will help your fluency in reading! Let’s see who are winners are next week!

Also a shout out to 5K for being the top attending phase; 6B you know what to do next week!
