Together We Can...

2023-2024

Easter Basket Making - March 2024

The children have been busy making Easter baskets this afternoon. There was some very creative designs! Well done to the older children for very patiently helping the younger ones. When we'd tidied up, everyone went out to play and celebrated the start of the holiday with an impromptu conga! 

Comic Relief Run

We all came dressed in red to support comic relief, bringing in a donation for the charity. We took part in some silly races, made red nose pictures and ate some buns too. 

World Book Day -  March 2024

As is tradition on World Book Day at Little Weighton Rowley School, children and their families come in and have breakfast together and read stories. It's a great opportunity for children to spend time with parents, sharing their love of reading. We had a great selection of books to choose from at school, as well as those brought in by the children themselves. Teachers and children all came dressed up as a character from their chosen book and we feel each year, the effort made by children is excelled! Well done to the winners of the 'best dressed' competition, which included lots of homemade costumes and attention to detail; those children all won a £5 book voucher.

Shrove Tuesday - February 2024

We gathered in the hall for a special assembly all about Shrove Tuesday, we learnt all about what Shrove Tuesday is and why it is celebrated, including why it is also called Pancake Day. The children then enjoyed a pancake each, after choosing which topping! Each class then took part in a pancake flipping competition, seeing who could flip their 'pancake' the most times. Well done to the winners!

Poetry Workshop with Mr Rice - January 2024

Mr Rice came into school to lead a poetry workshop. He read us some famous poems including the 'Owl and the Pussycat' by Edward Lear, 'The Tyger' by William Blake and 'From a Railway Carriage' by Robert Louis Stevenson. He also read some of his own poems, including 'Moon Dragons' and 'Hippotomouse'. We all joined with these poems, saying the repetitive lines and using some musical instruments to keep the rhythm. Mr Rice then worked with Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 and we wrote our own poems. At the end of the day, we all gathered in the hall to listen to each other's poems. 

Community Card Making - December 2023

We all gathered together in the hall to make Christmas cards to send out to the local community. The year 6 helpers were invaluable, each taking charge of a table. The children worked brilliantly together, producing some rather cute Christmas penguin cards. We are looking forward to delivering them next week!

Advent Worship 2023

This year over the advent season, we have taken an interactive approach to reflect on the meaning of advent. Each week we have focused on the themes of hope, peace, joy and love and added to our advent crown using evergreen firs, berries, lights and glitter as symbols of these ideas.

Children in Need - November 2023

The children (and staff) all enjoyed dressing in their own clothes to raise money for Children in Need. Lots of spotty yellow t-shirts, socks and jumpers could be seen around school and as always, a complete Pudsey suit worn by Mrs Gell. Each class thought about the theme of positive relationships throughout the day, considering how we can develop those in our own lives. Thank you to Class One for bringing in lots of yummy buns for us to eat!

Remembrance Service - November 2023

A time of coming together to reflect, to respect and to pray.

GB Athlete Visits Little Weighton - October 2023

Commonwealth and Invictus Games athlete, Sean Gaffney, visited our school today and put us through our paces! Here are some of our ‘games values’ wristband winners with Sean. Visit our sports page to hear a bit more about what we got up to and see photos of our day. 

Autumn Dig it Day - September 2023

We started the year as a whole school with our autumn Dig it day. Our crops may vary each year but we always all get stuck in and give it all we've got to harvest our produce. We have had an amazing rhubarb crop due to all the rain in July, so it was good to share it with the school family again. Harvested potatoes were used in Class 3 DT food topic to make delicious filled baked potatoes. Thanks to our Year 6 leavers, who gifted us ten fruit trees we were able to plant a new orchard.
