Annie Fanny

On Tuesday, Annie Fanny paid a visit to Crosby Primary School to promote a love of reading to the children in year 3/4.

After a "memorised" version of Cinderella, which included a greyhound called Prince and a curfew of back before countdown, Annie read one of her favourite books 'The Gruffalo' to the children. Both the teachers and children were hooked on every word as she performed the story with an array of voices, making each and every character come alive.

Sports Day

The children were very excited - after missing a year due to the school move, Sports Day was to go ahead this year...

The weather was maybe just a bit too kind to us and we had to be careful that we didn't burn or overheat in the fabulous sunny weather!

KS1 kicked off the events in the morning at about 9.15am with KS2 following in the afternoon.

There were lots of different events including the Egg and Spoon Race, Bean Bags in the Bucket, Football Dribbling Skills and 100 metres.

Everyone had lots of fun! Well done and thank you to everyone that took part (including the parent helpers!) :-)

Music Festival Success for Choir

On Wednesday the Crosby Key Stage 2 Choir performed at the Scunthorpe Music Festival. They were entered in the Town School Hymn class and sang Lord of the Dance. They were in competition against four other schools from the Scunthorpe area and finished second! They have all been working incredibly hard all year for this event and started practicing their song back in February. They scored eighty five points out of a hundred which is a commended performance. Adjudicator Steven Roberts said that the choir had clear pronunciation, good vocal effects and a strong sense of dynamics. He was also so pleased that they remembered all the verses!

Mr. Truepenny promises to pick a shorter song next year, but he and the other choir staff, Mrs. Gray and Mrs. Martin, are incredibly happy with their performance and result. Well done to our choir and to all the other schools who took part. Scunthorpe Music Festival is an incredible opportunity for young people to perform and be encouraged in their musical careers.

The photos show what a good time was had by all to learn about island life.

Crosby Goes Prehistoric

This term in Year 1 and 2 we are taking a step back into the prehistoric times. When learning about dinosaurs the children have enjoyed becoming palaeontologists and discovering dinosaur fossils and new facts about the different dinosaurs which roamed our planet millions of years ago. With this new knowledge each class chose a dinosaur to create out of recyclable materials such as cardboard boxes, paper and bottles to demonstrate what a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Diplodocus, Stegosaurus or Triceratops looked like. To make these dinosaurs look even more realistic we chose to paint them different colours to camouflaged them. We then as a year group wanted to see what each classes dinosaur looked like so we decided to display them in the hall for all of Crosby to see and enjoy.

Space Inspiration Days

For two days last week, pupils in Years One and Two were permitted to go off the usual timetable. This created an opportunity to spend two exciting days learning about and being inspired by space.

The different workshops included; Music - Composition, Geography - Equator & Temperature, Music - ICT, Art - The Galaxy, Music - Singing and Music from Holst (Planets), Art - Painting an Alien and Sorting Aliens. The children also had a visit from a mobile planetarium.

During the ICT workshop, pupils worked on laptops with a music software package called 2Simple Music Toolkit. This allowed the children to use different instruments, set different timings and use different volume levels for each instrument. The goal: to compose their own piece of space music.
