Here are some snaps of the gruffalos litter picking to protect our land and oceans. We then had some lovely hot chocolate as a well-deserved reward!
The Gruffalos have been making "Land Ahoy!"board games to show case their learning of our creative curriculum theme. The children then had a go at playing each other's games which were filled with knowledge about oceans, sea life and plastic pollution..
A small team of Y2s were excellent Walkley ambassadors at the Ponds Forge "Cricket All stars" festival. The children had a lot of fun catching, batting and bowling. Thank you very much to Sheffield Hallam University, Yorkshire cricket club and the Arches project for organising this brilliant event.
The Y2s did themselves and the school proud at the Kingswood 2 day residential. We were so impressed with how well the children supported, comforted and worked with each other while building dens, tidying rooms, climbing walls, building rafts and guiding each other blind folded through a "nightline" obstacle course. Things were so action packed, that everyone had a great night's sleep and decided to do an extra activity of a 3 mile walk round a reservoir on the last day. The Kingswood activity leaders who were with us, commented that we were the most mature, active and politest Key stage 1 group they had ever had. Long live this new Walkley tradition!
