Today @RotherhamMusic delivered our Winter-themed music lesson online. After warming up, we learned about our diaphragm and how to use our posture for singing. We tapped to the beats in a song, then moved to the beats. We can use musical notation to represent the different movements we did e.g. walk, stride, jogging and slow. […]
Today’s PE lesson was focused around ball skills, but the weather had other ideas. Children watched a video, focused on practicing skills with a tennis ball. Some children did today’s Joe Wicks workout. Many children explored our ‘Winter Wonderland’ for their exercise and had lots of fun with their families! Here is a video showing […]
Today we read a school reading book electronically, choosing from the non-fiction genre. Our task was to make a poster for the book and include any new facts that we had just found out. Beautifully presented – well done 2WB!
We were lucky to be able to keep our music lessons while home learning. We started with repeating chants, using different voices. Can you tell which is the sad chant and which is excited? We began to learn a new song with actions We finished with some rhythm work We just had time to share […]
Today we looked at items of equipment for an experiment. We put them in a list. We made a prediction about using the equipment. Next, we watched or participated in 3 different experiments: Fizzing Potions Milk Swirls Rainbow Skittles We even made our own videos… Finally, we drew and wrote about our observations… We really […]
We have enjoyed Christmas craft activity. Christmas maths has been a favourite 🎁 The cracker challenge got everyone thinking 🎅🏻
Our Nativity star is extremely multi-talented and enjoyed his acting debut in the school Christmas video…
Mrs Slack is working her magic…
We started with a special message from the man himself 🎅🏻 We had lots of ‘on the spot’ dancing and games. What great moves! Finally, pass the parcel is always a favourite.
We looked at statements like: even + even = ? Doubling an odd number = ? 😀 Children enjoyed justifying their sometimes, always or never answers with number sentences to prove it 🤔
Children in 2WB supported our Christmas Jumper day, looking fabulous!
Our Santas couldn’t believe it when they went dashing through the snow yesterday for our whole-school charity event @RotherHosp. What is the collective noun for a group of Santas?? Please let us know!
As part of our understanding of British Values, we acknowledge that not everyone will celebrate Christingle or Christmas. Children who do not celebrate this festival had an alternative task, to create an image of what this time of year means for them 👍🏻😀
We are really looking forward to continuing our art projects next week!
Yesterday we attended a live webinar all about Antarctica – as part of #AntarcticaWeek Festival 2020 (@GlacierThwaites). We loved learning facts about what animals live there and how to keep warm. Thank you Mrs Burkinshaw for organising this for us! 🐧🐳🦭❄️❄️❄️❄️
We used story maps to help us retell ‘How Giraffe became so tall’ Using Chromebooks, we made an electronic version of our story. Children were working between home and school to complete the full 15 parts to their Tinga Tanga tale.

1/2P have been enjoying utilising the Ks1 outdoor area for learning. We have done lots of brilliant learning outside, all whilst having lots of fun! This week, we have used our area for Phonics, Literacy and Numeracy learning. For Literacy, we looked at word classes and concentrated on nouns. We thought about what we could […]
This week we have looked at the amazing text ‘After the Fall’ by Dan Santat. We considered the deeper meaning within the story and discussed how we can be resilient and have a ‘Growth Mindset’. Our children were brilliant at this and we had a really meaningful discussion. We then closed our eyes and thought […]
Mrs Slack has been praising her reading champion for working so hard – it is definitely paying off 👍🏻😀 Well done!
We then wrote about the key points that we agreed or disagreed with from the story.
Working on strategies to support times tables has definitely helped – with a 12/12 success story this week! Well done to Mrs Slack and her group who are working really hard 👍🏻
Today we continued our silhouette art work with Mrs Robbins. We have been adding patterns and geometric shapes to our silhouettes, I wonder what we will add next…
Today we built arrays to help us solve worded multiplication questions. We used our arrays to skip count in 2’s, 5’s, 10’s and 3’s. We also wrote our multiplication number sentences two ways to show that the numbers are commutative (can go in any order).
In our outdoor maths session, we looked for arrays in our new KS1 outdoor learning area. Arrays help us to do repeated addition in our maths learning. We thought about how we make and use arrays. Children carefully constructed outdoor objects to make rows and columns, enabling them to skip count items quickly.
Any excuse for cake! 😉
Wednesday Despite a slow start (the chickens were being inquisitive and we couldn’t get in), we had our 4 leaders who changed the food and water for our feathered friends. Friday (am) Our 4 leaders were eager to have a go at taking care of our school pets. Friday (pm) Our final feed of the […]
We work on strategies to help with our skip counting skills 😀
