Strings Concert

Today we had our strings concert. You all performed brilliantly, well done! 

A hedgehog on the playground....or was it a hodgeheg?

 In our literacy lessons we have been reading 'The Hodgeheg'. We have loved reading about Max's adventure to find a safe place to cross the road. Some of us have even been inspired to build hedgehog nests in our playground. We couldn't believe our eyes when, like a stroke of magic, a hedgehog appeared on our playground this morning! We think that it was most certainly Max out on one of his adventures! We brought him in to have a look at in our classroom before he was safely sent to the 'Hedgehog Sanctuary' where he will be looked after. 

More Cricket!

We all loved our second cricket session with Dean today. We learnt all about batting today! We can't wait to see what we do in our next session on Thursday 22nd June!

Cricket with Dean Smith

 We have been very lucky indeed today as we have had the opportunity to worth with cricket coach, Dean Smith. Today we learnt all about bowling and had so much fun! We have 2 more cricket sessions; one on Wednesday 14th June and one on Thursday 22nd June. I wonder what we will learn then! 

National Coal Mining Museum

What a fantastic day we had at the National Coal Mining Museum! We learnt so much about what life was like as a miner in the past. Well done everybody! 


We have had a lovely morning orienteering at Cannon Hall. Well done everybody. Let's hope that we have the winning team! Here we are in our teams...

If you look closely, you might even spot Mr Gilmore being bossy!

Coal Mining Homework

Book Buddies!

 We had such a wonderful afternoon with our 'Book Buddies'. We shared books, read stories and had lots of fun with the children from FS2.

A book in a box!

What a fabulous idea! To celebrate World Book Day, these children have been really busy over the half term break making a book in a box! They will be displayed in the entrance hall ready for Parents Evening next week, please have a look, they are wonderful! We've had boxes showing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Little Red Riding Hood, Daisy and the Trouble with Vampires, Flat Stanley, Harry Potter, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and The Hungry Caterpillar! Wow! 

Bakeathon Winners! 

Wow! I can't believe it! The two Bakeathon winners were from our class! Well done! I am looking forward to seeing your creations next year! 

KS2 Bakeathon

Well done to everyone who baked for the KS2 Bakeathon! We are hoping to have raised lots of money for school funds. I think Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood would be very proud! 

Scholastic Books!

Wow! Look at all the wonderful books we have been able to buy with money raised from the Scholastic Book Fair! We can't wait to read them. Thank you!

Creswell Crags

We had a such an exciting, activity-filled day! All the children had the opportunity to take part in some amazing activities. We learnt lots of survival skills including: den building, spear throwing and fire making! We learnt how to track reindeer by looking for markings on the ground and of course...their droppings! We all explored Robin Hood's Cave and handled flint from over 10,000 years ago! It was so interesting so see just how Stone Age people would have lived and learn all the skills needed to survive in the cold climate. I hope that the children will always remember this day. Well done to everybody for behaving so well and showing such lovely manners - I am very proud of you all!  

Christmas Jumper Day!

Wow! You all look great in your Christmas jumpers!
