Goodbye and Goodluck
Tuesday 21st July 2015

Today is a day of mixed emotion, great sadness that our old year 6 children will be spending their last ever day here at Crosby, yet great happiness that we’ve seen some of these people grow from little children into responsible, hardworking and wonderful boys and girls; an attitude and commitment which is exemplified by the select few who join our 100% club.  

The 100% Club
Those children who through the entire academic year haven’t missed a single day.  An achievement we recognise and appreciate by rewarding those with a £5 gift voucher for WH Smiths.  Well done Ume, Alisha, Samia, Anamul, Jaymie-Leigh, Ebony and Chloe

Great Crosby Sewing Bee
Tuesday 7th July 2015

Well done to all of Mrs Thompson’s lunch time sewing club, who have spent a great deal of time this term designing and making their own  cushions.  Each child designed their creation on paper first, then transferred the design to material, then cut out and sewed them together using a sewing machine.  Congratulations everybody, they look absolutely superb!

Balloon Race

Just before half term, CCOPPs (Crosby Children's Outdoor Play Project) released balloons as part of a Balloon Race competition.  Children were selected by most balloons sold, or due to some brilliant act of hard work or exceptional behaviour.  Each balloon has a child's name on it, the balloon that travels the furthest wins a Toys R Us voucher for the finder and the boy or girl who sent it.

Question Time
Friday 15th May 2015

In the run up to the general election this month, we were visited by Nic Dakin (MP for Scunthorpe) who kindly agreed to answer some probing questions by our Y6. Questions included What do I need to do to become a politician, Why do you want to be re-elected and Shirin’s particularly profound …do you think you could benefit us more?  The day finished with Y6 staging their own parliamentary styled debate around the different parties and their pledges.

 
Galleries of Justice
Friday 24th April 2015

As part of the topic ‘Crime and Punishment’ Year 5 went to The Galleries of Justice Museum in Nottingham.

This week saw Year 1 continue their investigation into the seasons where each class visited Sheffield Park again to see how the seasons had changed from Winter to Spring.  They saw spring blooms, buds on trees, blossom, insects and a pair of birds building a new nest.

A Christmas Celebration
Wednesday 10th December 2014

Investigating Our Town At The Library
Thursday 16th October 2014

This week saw Y3 visit Scunthorpe town library.  While there, the librarians were kind enough to talk to us about lots of the different facilities which we can all use.  We looked at their networked catalogue of local photographs, where we saw images of Crosby School in the early 1900s, and we saw the books of census and local maps, both of which illustrated how much Scunthorpe has grown and developed over the last 50 years.

 
What have the Romans ever done for us!?
Thursday 25th September 2014

Nothing!... well, apart from architecture, firemen and Police, modern language, sanitation, aqueducts and irrigation, education, the calendar, coins, cement and bricks, public heated baths, turnips and carrots, paved streets and pavements ad infinitum (…that too)

Today Y4 welcomed Ronulus into Crosby, who spent the whole day teaching us about the Roman people, way of life, and the legacy they've handed down to us, which we still use today.
