Tuesday 7th January 2020
Library learning starts back up on Wednesday 8th January and the children are really looking forward to it! We are starting the term off with the classic The Wizard of Oz' and we hope to do some fun activities based on the book!
We hope you had a great Christmas and Happy 2020. We are looking forward to a great year ahead of us. There is going to be a lot of hard work from now to our SATS in Year 6. We are also looking forward to our residential trip this year.
In the coming weeks some of the children in Year 5 and Year 6 are going to start their football training; they are really looking forward to it.
This term Year 6 have been reading the book 'Holes' and we have all really enjoyed it because it has flash backs to 110 years ago and all the class have been really interested. On table 3 we have made some predictions about what might happen in the book. We are all in suspense and can't wait to see what happens next!
On Monday 9th December Year 4 did an advent wreath service for parents to attend. Every single person enjoyed it. One person said "I really enjoyed your liturgy and I think the children love doing it".
This week Nursery performed their Wriggly Nativity! Year 6 joined the parents and we are sure the grown-ups loved it. During the show Nursery explained the story of the nativity in such a fun way! They all really enjoyed doing this and we wish they could do it over and over again!
Later this week KS2 will perform their Christmas around the world carol service!
KS2 have been practising their nativity, Christmas Around the World. On 10th December we are having our dress rehearsal. All of the children have been trying hard to learn songs from other countries and cultures.
First School Blog Meeting
Today was the first meeting for the school blogging team. We are meeting once a fortnight and we will work hard to create new stories to share with you each time we meet.
On Monday Year 4 had a visitor who taught them about the Normans. He taught us a lot of facts about education and their life styles. At the end of the day we went into the hall with our paper shields and got to march like a Norman soldier. Everybody had loads of fun and this was a great experience.
The Change 4 life team have been using their balance skills in their sessions. On Tuesday 19th November they taught Year 4 and Year 3 pupils how to balance on a big beam. This activity looked fun and the children loved learning.
Last week we held a trial to see if we could have school dinners and packed lunches sitting together because for many years we have had separate tables. We were very excited about it at first but by the end of the week we were used to it and it was very good.
During this term Year 6 and Year 5 have taken part in the Coyne league in which different schools from the North East take part in. So far in the league we have won 8 games and lost one. We got an excellent surprise on Thursday when the South Shields football club came in and talked to us about the season. After that they gave all of the children a ticket to get free entry into the match on 30th November. All of the children were excited.
