Kwik Cricket

Last week , several of our Y5/6 children took part in the area Kwik  cricket competition , held at Denby Cricket Club. We played in a mini league , losing the first game by 27 points but went on to win our second game 62-18 comfortably. The team played really together and were extremely supportive of each other throughout.Sadly, we didn't make it to the finals but the children were a fantastic credit to the school. Thank you to the parents who came along to watch in the sunshine.  IMG_1808

Super sunflower!

Despite the rain, Class 1 had a bright and cheerful welcome back into class today! India brought in the sunflower that she planted from seed during our 'Plants' topic in Spring term. She has tended to it at her grandad's house and it has bloomed a beautiful flower.

Well done India, you have remembered all of the things we learnt to be able to care for a plant! 


Parachute fun!

Class One had great fun this week using the parachute. They worked as a team, listened carefully to instructions and enjoyed themselves.  IMG_5470

He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws...

We have had a lovely surprise today... Toby and his family have been busy at home, baking this fantastic Gruffalo cake for Class 1! We were all very excited to take a piece home! It is lovely to see children so inspired and enthused about their learning that it continues at home in a variety of ways :-) 

Thank you Toby and family!

To link with healthy eating this week, class 5 learned how to prepare a simple, delicious and nutritious meal. Their challenge was to create a 'Healthy Spring Roll', incorporating important food groups in appropriate ratios and fabulous flavour combos!
