As part of Black History Month, 5/6H and 6B have looked at the artwork of Adia Millett. We analysed her artwork in paint, textiles and wood. We then created our own versions of her work. The results have been lovely.
Today we contributed to a joint willow sculpture which is now attached to one of the front fences in school for all to see. We learnt new skills and with a lot of resilience made some lovely leaves made of willow to add to the branches.
Last week, year 6 visited Crucial Crew to learn about lots of different situations. They looked at hate crimes, fire safety, road safety and our favourite the magistrates court. The children learned lots of new things and how to cope in different situations.

Thank you to everyone for all your hard work this week. Congratulations Jack on achieving the Head Teachers Award this week and to Mrs Buttree – our staff star of the […]

Sharing some fabulous learning outcomes this week we are really proud of all of our dojo winners this week.
Today we have been appreciating poetry looking at a range of narrative poems around our key person in history, Grace Darling.

We then added in a drama frieze focussing on the famous painting ‘The Wreck of […]
Today we started our discussion in response to a film that we watched about how the world had a new beginning after the Corona Virus.

Wentworth Woodhouse has invited us to make paper camellia flowers to contribute to a collaborative art work installation, to attract funding to restore its beloved Camellia House.

Today we started our performing arts journey with @WingfieldAcad Children composed and performed their own movements to music using our class text Kensuke’s Kingdom as a stimulus. We are looking forward to our further sessions with Miss Priestley over the autumn term.
Identifying what animals live in our pond, what can you see?
We have a wide range of opportunities on offer for our Children this term. What a wonderful time our children have had in their first session.

Today, we have discussed what makes a good friend, listing qualities and attributes. We then ranked them in importance order but came to the conclusion that all of the qualities that we look for have the same level of importance. Finally we explored Agony Aunt/ Uncle scenarios and expressed our opinions on what we would […]
We loved our first assembly back sharing all the wonderful things that had happened that week. Our children have come back settled and love learning. It was really lovely to see our KS1 children back in the hall. Well done to all our winners and to Scholes who have taken the house challenge lead.
Yesterday, Rotherham Library Serviced helped our new Y6s understand how to run a loaning library. We just have a few finishing touches and we will be relaunching to the whole school.

Mrs Tunks always loves taking us on adventures. We explored the pond and saw lots of frogs and tadpoles. I hope we didn’t scare them off.
We have built on our art and poetry skills this week into published pieces. Children have explored line and texture in art and completed Blackout poetry with a descriptive page from our class text Kensuke’s Kingdom. Outstanding start to the new term by all.
Our Children in 5/6H and 6B were exploring tone within their sketch books today. You can see some of the completed sketches from 6B in their post. Well done everyone so proud of the way you have settled back in.
Today, we used our pencil sketching skills to create line drawings of sailing boats, linked to our class text Kensuke’s Kingdom. Children then quickly transferred these pencil skills into pen drawings becoming braver with their line experimentation as the afternoon went on.
Today we challenged ourselves to making the Olympic Rings using folding of paper techniques (Origami). It was really challenging but we persevered. We most definitely did not use a dot of glue to secure a couple of the main joins. Did we 6B? 🙈

Today, 6B have been learning new watercolour skills in order to create a skills card for any watercolour work that we complete this school year. Children were surprised to know that a ‘dirty palette’ is a good palette because of the broad range of colours that could be created. We will be laminating these cards […]
Our inspirational Olympian is the Sheffield born Jessica Ennis-Hill. My new Y6s have enjoyed researching her journey through her early career and the passion and drive for success; into life after her retirement from her athletics career.
