Year 1’s Christmas Party!

Today was the Year 1 Christmas party.

All of the children looked fabulous in their smart outfits and beautiful dresses!

We had a fantastic time dancing, singing and playing party games.

We were all so surprised when, for the second time this week, Santa Claus came to visit us!

Another super afternoon had by all!

We wish you a very merry Christmas and a relaxing, well deserved rest over the holidays.

Today, Year 1 had a delicious Christmas lunch at The Cock Crow Inn!

We all had a scrumptious carvery followed by a pudding of our choice.

After all of that, we were very full!

Suddenly, we heard bells ringing and in came a special visitor… Santa Claus! He gave us all a present for us to open on Christmas Day.

A fantastic afternoon was had by all!

A huge thank you to everyone at The Cock Crow Inn for having us!

Reception at the Cock Crow

Today Reception had Christmas Lunch at the Cock Crow Inn! It was delicious. We were so lucky because we also had a very special visitor! Santa took time out from his busy day to visit us and bring us a present! We sang him some songs and then he had to go and feed his reindeer. Before we left we sang some Christmas songs for the customers who were having their lunch. They saw us sing last year and came back for more wonderful singing to get them in the Christmas spirit!
Merry Christmas everybody!

Y1 Vue Cinema Visit

On Friday, Year 1 went to see The Smurfs: The Lost Village at Vue cinema in Gateshead.

We had a fantastic time and looked fabulous in our Children in Need attire.

There were lots of other schools there but the Toner Year 1s were definitely the best behaved!

The fun continued after our long walk back to school from the metro station when we all had our picnics in the classroom.

A great day was had by all! Thank you very much to the parent helpers who gave up their time to come along on our visit.

Year 2 Youtubers!

Here in year 2, we’ve been working super hard in our English lessons.

We decided that the teachers, the parents and the WORLD, needed to learn about Minecraft!

We spent one week looking at Non-Chronological reports and seeing what we needed to include in our own, we practised using conjunctions and sorting information under sub-headings.

Then we planned and wrote our Minecraft reports. Now, as serious Youtubers, we had to make sure we edited and improved our work…the grown ups wouldn’t want to see any mistakes!

Finally, this week we’ve been reading our reports out loud. We had to use expression as the best Youtubers are exciting and not boring! Today we made our videos. I was impresses by all of the children’s efforts and I know they really enjoyed it, but they’re most excited about everyone watching them!

Here are the Youtube links, you are the only people able to view our videos as you’ve visited our website. It’s our first attempt so please give us some encouragement. (It’s also the first time I’ve fathomed out how to upload videos on here too!)

World War 2 Projects!!

A big thank you to all parents, guardians, aunties, uncles and friends who have helped Y6 with their WW2 projects. They were amazing!! We had everything from cake, models, medals, pictures, text and IT.

A real diverse mix – the children thoroughly enjoyed doing their own and listening to how other children made theirs.

Thanks again
