This week we invited parents from Nursery up to Year 6 to experience our reading event. Held over 4 days, we showed parents how children in every year group are taught phonics and reading. We have had such positive feedback and would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who attended and participated in our first parent event: we look forward to running others in the future.
Well done to our Stars of the Week this week!
Congratulations to our Star of the Week winners this week!
The pictures from our visit with Lucy Turner are eventually ready to view! We tried spotty dogs, mountain climbers, push ups and star jumps and it was exhausting! Well done to every single person who took part and tried their hardest. We were extremely proud of everyone!
This week the whole school has celebrated Art Week. Each year group focussed on a different art movement. We each learned about a different art style, some famous artist and create our own piece of fantastic art.
Year 1 Fauvism
Year 2 Pop Art
Year 3 Surrealism
Year 4 Surrealism
Year 5 Cubism
Year 6 Dadaism
This half term Year 1 have been extremely busy. We have been taking part in yoga sessions with Vicky from Kalma Life. We have been practising our yoga poses such as: downward dog, mountain pose, easy pose, hero pose and warrior pose. We have also been practising our mindfulness at the beginning and end of each session.
We have been looking at art by Andy Goldsworthy and recreating some of his work. Look at these fantastic models.
In computing we are understanding the importance of using digital media to capture our ideas. We drew and labelled our own rockets using 2simple software and we are using these pictures to help us make our models.
In maths we have been using concrete to materials to count equal groups.
Today we were able to spend our attendance stars from Autumn 2!
We had so much to choose from and enjoyed spending our well earned stars. Did you know we get a star for every full week we have in school? We were able to choose prizes such as; superhero masks, rubbers, zip bracelets, cars and so much more!
We are so excited for the attendance trolley to come around next time but for now, Miss Little has to rest her feet!
This week, a little later than we had hoped, we were able to go to our attendance shop. This attendance shop was on wheels and came to our classrooms which was super fun!
We were all so excited to be able to pick our prizes which ranged from superhero masks, squishies, snap bands and much more! Our most popular prize was definitely the slinky!
Wow, it was so wonderful to hold our first parent event in almost two years! Thank you to everyone who came to support our McMillian Coffee Morning and huge thanks to Year 6 and the staff for all their hard work in organising this event.
The Year 6 pupils are currently distributing the remaining cakes to classes and we will let you know the total amount raised as soon as the donations are counted.
Thank you to everyone who donated cakes and biscuits – we had so may that we took some to our lovely neighbours to brighten their day. All of the packets that are left will be dropped off a Hebburn Helps today.
This year we are supporting the Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in the worlds biggest coffee morning! The Year 6 children will be hosting the coffee morning and raffle in the school hall from 9:15am on Friday 24th September and we really hope to see you all there!!
All children are invited to bring in a voluntary donation towards the purchase of a cake of their choice in order to raise money for this fantastic cause.
Cake donations would also be greatly appreciated. These can be brought in by children and will be collected from classes by Year 6 before Friday.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you there!
