Year 6 had a great afternoon investigating reflective materials. They even adapted their own clothes so that they could be seen on these dark nights. Remember be bright, be seen.
Year 6 Sports Hall Athletics. Well done to all.
Year 4 had a fascinating day at Arbeia yesterday. As usual, their behaviour was perfect and they learned such a lot.
We have been making Autumn Crowns this week. We used lots of maths to help us make them. Please ask your child to find out how we made them.
Well done to all our stars this week. We are so proud of all your achievements. 9-11-17
Today, School Council representatives visited the Key Project in South Shields to deliver the food that we have collected. Thank you to all families who have donated items.
This morning Year 3 paid their respect to all of the fallen soldiers who have died in conflict since the First World War. We laid stones which we had painted with Mrs KG in the shape of a poppy.
May they rest in peace.
Well done to our three Year 4 teams (and their supporters) yesterday at the Hockey Finals. We didn’t make it past the group stage this time, but our attitude, respect for the referee and each other was first class!
This morning Year 2 visited the Cenotaph at West Park to pay our respects to all fallen soldiers who have died both in war and peace time. On our return to school we laid special stones in the prayer garden and took time to reflect on the day with our own prayers.
A gentle reminder that our liturgy is this coming Wednesday at 2:30pm.
Teaching our children about the significance of Remembrance Day and why people wear a poppy is not always an easy thing to do.
Today in class we watched a short animation produced by CBeebies. It is simply entitled ‘Poppies’ and helps to convey the notion of remembrance in a way that would resonate with a young audience.
After watching this we decided to make our own poppies to help us remember. Later in the day we took our poppies to the prayer wall in our prayer garden and placed a painted stone on the poppy made by all our friends in school.
