Rumble in the Jungle

Well done to all the children in the ‘Great Gorillas’. You have made a brilliant start to the new academic year!

In English we have enjoyed listening to and reciting poems about jungle animals. The children loved picking out the rhyming words and identifying the verbs and adjectives in the poems. In May when the children are tested they will have to know what a verb and adjective are.

E.g. High light the verb and the adjective in the sentence.

The brown monkey was jumping from tree to tree.

On Thursday the children had a go at writing their own poems about a lion, monkey or elephant. We have displayed these poems on large cut outs of monkeys which are going to hang from the ceiling in our classroom. So look out for the cheeky monkeys in Class 2 next week!!

Thank you to all the children who have completed some brilliant homework and brought it back on Monday. Also thank you to all those parents who heard their children read and recorded their comments or signature 3 or more times. Your children will be entered into the prize draw in Friday’s assembly!

Tankersley Gold celebration event

Wednesday 3rd October

Dear Parents and carers,

We are very proud to announce, that we have been awarded the Gold Modeshift Stars award, for our hard work and dedication to improving road safety, at Tankersley. This is a fantastic achievement for our school, as we are the first school in Barnsley, to be awarded the Gold star. 

To achieve this award, we have consistently held road safety activities for our pupils and pupils have also changed how they travel to school. Last year 43% of pupils travelled by car. This is now only 16%. A change of 27%, to active sustainable travel. Well done Tankersley!

To celebrate this achievement, we are having a Gold celebration event, on Weds 3rd October, which will be attended by the Mayor Councillor Steve Green.

In the morning, pupils will be treated to ‘golden’ performances in the hall and can arrive in non-uniform, in a yellow or golden outfit.

Normal lunch options are not available on this day, as the Catering staff are providing a ‘golden’ buffet lunch. Pupils have the option to choose the buffet lunch or bring their own packed lunch. Please print and complete the reply slip below and return to your class teacher by Monday 17th September.

There is also a raffle , for a brand new scooter and helmet. Tickets £1, will be on sale in the hall, every morning 8.50-9.00 from Monday 17th September, until Tuesday 2nd October.

This is me!

The nursery children have been using their observational skills to paint self-portraits. They used a mirror to observe their lovely faces first, before they painted.

The results were amazing.  They were really proud of their super work! Well done everyone!
