Class 6 Elections

Today in class 6 we held an election to find our new class mayor.

The children wrote their campaign pledges which included litter picking, helping with reading and even bringing in sweets!

We then held a vote. Well done to Amelie who was elected Mayor and Katie and Freddy who are assistant mayors. I can’t wait to see what they get up to!

Ros Jones – Expert Visit

This morning we had a visit from the Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones. We were very impressed with the mature and thoughtful questions the children asked such as,

Do you like your job?

Do you have an office?

What are you going to do to help homeless people?

Are there any foodbanks in Doncaster?

How did you become the mayor?

Who gave you your CBE?

Who came first in the Mayor of the world competition?

How has Covid 19 affected Doncaster?

How do you keep people safe in Doncaster?

What can we do to help?

We are looking forward to meeting some more experts next week to learn even more about champions in our community and what we can do to make a difference.

Preparing for our first expert visit

We have spent time today writing a protocol for expert visits. We talked about how we could use our habits of work and learning to help us – we are very excited to put our protocol to use tomorrow with our first expert visit.

Reception Class 2 – Our First Week!

We have really enjoyed getting to know each other this week, exploring, investigating and developing our Crew.  Our classroom has been a busy place and we have spent lots of time outdoors too! We are really looking forward to the adventures we will be having next week!

Welcome back!

We’ve had a wonderful start to our new year with lots of smiles this week. We have met our new crews, had lots of fun developing our team work skills through competitions and games and have practised our listening skills in music.

Balloons and Eggs Galore!

Another day means another day of crew challenges!

Today we had to build the tallest freestanding balloon tower – everyone did amazingly working together and communicating to build the best structure despite a few burst balloons!

Next we had a pile of materials, a roll of tape and an egg. We had to make the best safety jacket for our egg before dropping them from the target board to see which crews egg had survived! There was some fantastic team work and communication because every crew had an egg survivor!

If we get crew right, we get everything right.
