Growth Mindset

We have been discussing the importance of having a growth rather than fixed mindset. Here are some pictures of our fixed mindsets and then our growth mindset statements.


We have been thinking about different ways in which we can estimate and represent numbers. Here are some pictures of us in action.


As part of R.E. we have been looking at the Christian explanation of creation. This week we created our own interpretations of the world using lego. We then went outside for a short playtime and when we got back into the classroom our creations had been DESTROYED. We had reflection time to think about how this made us feel and allowed us to discuss and think about the term 'Stewardship'. 

World Food Day 2017

Today we celebrated World Food Day in school. We went into a special assembly and we were all given a SECRET box filled with ingredients and clues about the country we would be learning about. When we got back to class, we soon worked out that our dish was chilli con carne and that it came from Mexico. We talked about what we know already about Mexico.

Grace, " Sombreros come from Mexico!"

Ethan," Tacos are Mexican!"

We then made the dish AND tasted it! After play we looked at a famous female artist, FRIDA KHALO. We thought about 4 key questions linked to one piece of her artwork titled "Self portrait and monkeys."


Forest School

This half term we will be spending time in BBW. This week we explored the following question: I WONDER HOW WE COULD KEEP OURSELVES DRY AND PROTECTED? We showed fantastic team work skills to produce shelters. Here are some pictures (spot Mrs Wilson testing them with her watering can!)

Operation Christmas Child

As a class, we decided that we would like to make our own shoebox for a boy aged 10-14. Thank you so much for all of the contributions, we had so much we managed to make 2 boxes!

First day back

Our first day back to school is a very special one! The tour of Britain is in North Lincolnshire and passes our school TWICE! We have a day of celebrating planned! Watch this space for photographs.


We had the best first day back at school! We took part in our very own bike race and then watched the Tour of Britain twice. Keadby had such a party atmosphere; there was bunting, decorated bikes and we sang the National Anthem whilst we were waiting. Here are a few photos from our day!

Christmas in the community

Aswell as the cards that we made to send home to family, we made an extra card for somebody in our community. We went out and posted a card each through letterboxes in Keadby in the hope of spreading Christmas cheer. We hope you like them!
