World Read Aloud Day

This afternoon for World Read Aloud Day, the Y5 children came to visit us to read their favourite stories. There were loads of great stories and all the children enjoyed listening to the older children read to them.

Year 1 are artists!

For World Read Aloud Day, KS1 focussed on a story called The Tiger Who Came For Tea. In the afternoon, we focussed on creating abstract art in the style of Steven Brown who focuses on drawing animals and painting them unusual colours. So as a class, we drew the facial features of a tiger then mixed colours together to make our unusual colours for them.

Have a look below to see our masterpieces.

Christmas Dinner

Today was Christmas Dinner. First of all, the children had crackers to open and then sang along to Christmas songs whilst they ate. The children really enjoyed themselves and are now really excited for the holidays.

Christmas Fair

On Thursday, we had our annual Christmas Fair. As part of our class stall, we decorated baubles and made hot chocolate reindeers. As a school, we raised over £1100. Thank you to everyone that contributed.

Year 1 are performers!

This week, we have been performing our school nativity. The children have loved wearing their costumes and singing Christmas songs. We all have worked really hard and the performances have been a huge success. Thank you to everyone who came to watch and we hope you enjoyed the show.

Multi-skills at Barnsley College

This week, Year 1 and 2 visited Barnsley College for the morning. Here we did lots of games which involved throwing, rolling, running, jumping and catching. All the games involved performing the skills accurately and from different distances. The children had a lot of fun and learnt lots of new skills.

Year 1 are gymnasts!

Today in indoor PE, the children focussed on recognising and creating different body shapes. First of all, the children copied different body shapes (these included: tuck, pencil, star, straddle, pike, bridge, surfer and dish) then the children made their own routines using shapes they had copied and shapes they had created on their own.

Children in Need

BBC Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Their vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.

BBC Children in Need is currently supporting over 2,800 projects in communities across the UK that are helping children and young people facing a range of disadvantages such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma. In the last grant year alone, support has helped change the lives of over 589,000 disadvantaged children and young people, right here in the UK.

Today, our children dressed up and brought in a voluntary contribution which will all be set off to Pudsey and his team. We raised a fantastic £202.10 so thank you to everybody that contributed.

Special Visitor

Ahead of Children in Need, Kexborough Primary had a special visitor today… Pudsey the bear himself! He came into our assembly then he visited us in class afterwards to take some pictures. Have a look below to see them.
