World Book Day

Today was World Book Day and to celebrate we completed lots of activities about The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson. In the morning, we wrote about how The Highway Rat was caught for his awful crimes and in the afternoon we made a story map, did some colouring, watched the story online and made our own highway mask. Have a look at the children below with their masks.

Daisy Illustrations

This week, we have been focusing on the story Daisy Eat Your Peas. This afternoon, we watched a video of the illustrator Nick Sharratt teaching how he draws Daisy in the story. The children really enjoyed drawing Daisy and here are their masterpieces.


This week, the wows went to these children for challenging themselves in their work and for being role models in class. Well done!

Last week, the wows went to these boys for their hard work in phonics. Well done!

Christmas Door Afternoon!

On the afternoon of 2nd December, all classes across school took part in our Christmas Door Decorating Afternoon. All the children (and staff!) had a fantastically festive afternoon, listening to Christmas songs and making decorations to display on their classroom doors. The end results look amazing and have definitely made Kexborough Primary look a little more festive!

A big thankyou to all the staff and children for their hard work and ambitious designs!

Avocado Baby

This week, Our writing has been based around our about class story Avocado Baby. In the story, the baby will not eat anything apart from avocados and when he eats avocados he becomes extremely strong. Today, we tried avocados for the first time (to hopefully make us strong like in the story). When we got our piece of avocado, we first described what they were like then we tried them. Out of the whole class, only 6 children said they liked it and the others thought it was horrible! Have a look below to see what we thought about trying avocados.


These children received a wow this week for their hard work and for having a positive attitude to learning. Well done!
