The children have settled back into the school routine quickly after the Christmas break. These are a few of the activities we have enjoyed this week.
We watched the pantomime performance of Cinderella in the hall today. It was fabulous, the children were gripped by the drama of it. We have followed this up by reading alternative versions of Cinderella but the pantomime version was overwhelming voted as the favourite one!
We had been looking forward to our party all week. The buns were made (by the children), the list of games written and the 'pass the parcels' wrapped. The children had lots of fun and so did the adults!
We were very pleased with how the children sang and spoke out loudly in our concert. Thank you to everyone who came to watch. We have recorded some clips of the rehearsal for anyone who wasn't able to come. We hope you enjoy watching them.
The children were so surprised to see who was sat in our library area this morning! We were super proud of them all because Santa commented on their beautiful manners.
Year 6 and FS2 have had a wonderful afternoon walking to Wombwell Library together. The Year 6 children acted like role models walking with a partner from foundation and making new friends.
At the library, we listened to The Night Before Christmas and learnt about how the library works. Year 6 then read stories to the foundation children and shared that special time together. Any child that has a library card borrowed a book to take home. A wonderful time was had by all!
We can't wait to do it again in the spring.
Our focus for anti-bullying has been friendship and also understanding that we are all different and all special. We have been learning through stories and have based a lot of our learning on the story of 'Elmer' and also 'Only one you'.
Today a sample of our work was displayed in the hall. Here are some photos in case you couldn't make it.
We loved children in need day. We had no uniform, Pudsey bear and rockstars! Real variety this year. We raised lots of money for the charity and the children showed concern that some children have problems and are not as lucky as we are.
'As part of anti-bullying week we took part in 'odd sock day'. The children were so proud to show off their socks.
Odd Socks Day' is designed to be fun. It is an opportunity to encourage the children to express themselves and celebrate their individuality and what makes us all unique! We talked to the children about how we are all different and that is what makes us all special.
The children created their own poppies to wear on Remembrance Day. They wore them proudly in our assembly and we were very proud of how quiet and respectful they were during the silence.
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
