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.  

Kexborough Students Are Scientists!

On the afternoon of Friday 8th November the whole school took part in science experiments to celebrate World Science Day. We talked about how science is relevant to our lives and how without it we wouldn’t have half of the things we have today. Have a look below at some of the photographs taken during our afternoon celebrating World Science Day. All children from FS1 through to Year 6 demonstrated engagement and curiosity during their experiments. Please see individual class blogs for more details on what we got up to!

Year 1 Athletics

In outdoor PE this half term, we are focusing on athletics. This week, Mr Rodgers has been focusing on travelling at different speeds: walking, marching, jogging and running. Afterwards, we got into our coloured teams and practiced those skills whilst racing each other.

Bubble Science for World Science Day

Bubble print

On the 10th November it is World Science Day. To mark the occasion, Year 1 have been making bubble print pictures. We mixed water, washing up liquid and paint together. Then we used straws to blow into the mixture and then we placed a piece of paper on top to create our bubble prints. Throughout the process, we discussed why the bubbles kept getting bigger and what would happen if we placed the paper on top. Have a look below to see us in action.  

Sharing is caring

In RE this half term, we have been looking at the concept of caring for others. Today, we focused on Sikhism. This is because in every Sikh temple there is a Langar which is a free kitchen. We learnt about when people go to the Langar they get free food and is run by volunteers. We also discussed why they only made vegetarian food at the Langar and why it is a kind thing to do.

Properties of Materials

In Science, we have been looking at every day materials and their properties. During the lesson, we discussed what materials were and what all the properties meant. The children then had to look for certain properties and write down a material that had that property. The children worked hard and were able to name more than one material for each of the properties.

Bulb planting

Today, we have been bulb planting with the North Area Council Team in Kexborough Recreational Ground. The children placed the bulbs into the ground and then put the grass back on top and stamped it down. The children  really enjoyed themselves and we are all looking forward to seeing them grow in the spring.

The five oceans

In year 1,  we have been practicing singing songs to remember the 5 oceans. Have a listen to hear how they have been getting on.

Wet play

Unfortunately today the children have had to stay indoors due to the wet weather. However the children in year 1 have been having a great time doing a range of activities in the classroom. Have a look below to see what they got up to.

Proud moment

In assembly today, we celebrated proud moments of the week. My proud moment of the week was that these two children wrote their first ever sentences independently. I am so pleased to see how far they’ve come in such a short space of time. Well done!


This week, we have been learning to take pictures on an iPad. Once they had took their pictures they went on a photo editing app where they could change the colour, filter and orientation of the photo. Have a look below to see some of the children in action.
