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.
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.
Congratulations to our new school buddies 2017-2018
This year our buddies will be very busy organising playground games and termly inter house playground competitions. They will also be there as pupil support at play and lunch times ensuring that friendship is at the centre of our play. Well done buddies I’m looking forward to working with you this year.

Today Year 3 learned about St. Paul’s letter to the Colossians. They had to interpret what we have to do to be a Holy People.
We used imovie and camera to help us make our own trailers to show how we can be Holy People.
Yesterday the Rise Theatre Company visited school. Years 5 and 6 participated in workshops and the whole school enjoyed a play about Oscar Romero. The key messages were YOU MATTER and LOVE NEVER GIVES UP.
What a day we have had, we started at Infinite Air on the FreeJump course with over 40 trampolines and box sections, we bounced all over the place. We also did the Bag Jump, standing at nearly 3 metres above the podium floor, we looked down on to the huge airbag, and all eyes were on us. We were at the highest point in Infinite Air, looking out over the whole park, waiting to jump! We nearly all did it!
We also had a fantastic day full of challenge at Beamish Wild. We had the opportunity to learn how to manage risk in a controlled environment and overcome our fears with the support of our friends whilst having FUN.
We all attended a safety briefing and practiced our skills on the ground before heading to the treetops. Beamish Wild’s staff were on hand to supervise us at all times, throughout our high ropes experience which were really, really high and scary.
We hope you enjoy our photos as much as we have enjoyed our day.
We are extremely excited to announce the arrival of the ‘SS Peter & Paul Spelling Bee.’
