It was a difficult decision for staff to choose which children should receive the Redscope Learning Awards as so many children always try their best and are 100% committed to learning.

This year the green team won the team point challenge. They were 4 points ahead of the blue team … so every single point counts. The Green team had an amazing reward. They were taken bowling, had a wimpy meal and then went to the park for ice lollies and outdoor fun. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. All the staff commented that this group were the best that we had ever taken. They were so polite and well mannered. It was no wonder that they were the winning team.
Well done Greens! Which team will win in 2015-16?
The Year 4 and 5 children visited the New York Stadium to sing as part of the One Voice celebration. The months of rehearsals were worth it as the children sounded amazing. The children particularly enjoyed singing ‘The dragons under my bed’. They loved seeing Mrs Bennett, who was conducting our section of the choir. Despite the rain, the event was a huge success. Staff commented on how proud they were of our children as everyone was so beautifully behaved. Well done children. You are a credit to your parents.
Thank you so much to everyone who entered our Easter bonnet/ hat competition. We had over 100 entries! Each one was brilliant and must have taken ages to make. The judges had a very difficult job but eventually decided on 13 winners. Congratulations to everyone who won and well done to everyone who had a go.
Class 14 visited the New York Stadium this week. We had a special talk by Peter Murray, a preview of his new football book and a tour of the stadium. We saw all areas of the stadium including the changing rooms. Some of us got to sit in Ben Pringle’s spot! Everyone behaved beautifully and relished being chosen to represent the school. During the event the story writing winners were chosen and our very own Charlie Stringer won! Well done Charlie!
We all went outside to experience the eclipse. Sadly science does not always work out perfectly… it was so cloudy that we did not see very much. We did experience an eerie silence and the temperature dropped. Lots of classes read the Rotherham safety advice, watched the live stream or completed some related science learning.
Today (5th Feb) a Mayan warrior came to school. He educated Y6 on all things Mayan. We learned how to count in Mayan, special Mayan words and moves and created drama scenes to explain aspects of the life of the Maya. We got to try on Mayan clothing including a fabulous head piece.
It was a wonderful day.
Y6 visited the Sheffield Arena on Thursday 22nd of January to perform at the Young Voices concert. The atmosphere was electric and fun was had by all. We performed with Lucy Spraggan from Britain’s Got Talent. We loved the medleys and got to perform 2 in assembly in Friday for the rest of the school.
We had so much fun last week. It snowed and Mrs Dobbin let us go out to play … provided we were sensible! We made snowmen, snow sculptures, massive snow balls. It was fantastic. The field was full of laughter and happy smiling faces.
