The last couple of weeks, the children have been looking at mixing primary colours and how to make darker and lighter versions of the same colour. For each colour the children had to think about which colour would make it lighter or darker. Then they had to make different shades of the same colour. Have a look below to see what we have been up to.

Number Day

Today has been number day so we have all dressed up in number based clothes to raise money for the NSPCC. To celebrate number day, we have completed lots of different Maths based activities. First we played snap and snakes and ladders then we played other maths board games. After dinner, we made our own clocks, did some maths colouring smd finally we played some bingo! We have had such a lovely time and as a class, we managed to raise £37.33 and as a school we have raised £298.53 which Mrs Richardson has rounded up to £300. Thank you for all of your donations!

The Gruffalo

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been doing different types of writing about the Gruffalo. First, we wrote descriptive pieces about what the Gruffalo was like. Then, we rewrote the story in our own words using a range of sequencing words. The children then copied their work neatly. Mrs Brocksom and I have been that impressed with their that we decided to create a display to show off all their hard work . You can see the writing and our display in the pictures below. Enjoy!

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!
