NSPCC came in to speak to all of the children in school. KS2 had an assembly in the hall then KS1 and EYFS had an assembly in the classroom. They learned all about being safe and understanding what is not ok. Everyone was excited when they met Buddy and recognised he was a speech bubble to show children how to speak out and stay safe.
Year 2 really enjoyed film night in their cosy pyjamas and Millions of sweets!
Today we looked at the Bible. We found out this is a very special book full of the word of God. The children pass the Bible around to have a look themselves. Some couldn’t believe how many pages there were and how much writing was there! Everyone designed a new front cover for the Bible to show it is full of God’s love and special people.
This term, Year 6 were set the task of creating a project about a US state. The children were then given the opportunity to share their projects with the class. We heard a range of presentations and it was so lovely to hear the children saying that they loved learning from each other. Fantastic work Year 6.
Year 3 had a great time at the KS2 Christmas party! We enjoyed lots of dancing, games and yummy food!
Year Five had a brilliant time at their Christmas Party. There was lots of laughter, dancing and games. They all looked super smart!
All of the children had an excellent afternoon at their Christmas party yesterday. They played lots of party games, danced all afternoon and had smiles on their faces all day. A secret visit from Santa was also a massive surprise to everyone. We can’t wait for Christmas!
Last week, Reception and KS1 preformed in their nativity and were all superstars!They have been working hard to learn all the songs and retell the special story of Christmas.
Reception enjoyed a festive trip to Gibside National park to take part in their Christmas Trail. We wrapped up warm and were greeted by two members of the trust on our arrival. Santa’s Reindeers had dropped their sacks and we had to find them to help save Christmas. As we searched for them we had help from Ivy the Christmas Elf. we found sacks hidden in different parts of the park, inside the sacks were : songs for us to sing, interesting facts about the wildlife at Gibside and where the idea of the first Christmas tree came from. It was a blustery day with leaves swirling around us as we walked. We settled next to a camp fire where we were able to toast marshmallows over the fire pit, it was amazing. When we had found all of the sacks we learnt how to sing ‘Oh Christmas tree’ in German where it originated from. We had so much fun!
All of the children have had an excellent afternoon at our Christmas party. They played lots of party games, danced until their little legs were tired and had smiles on their faces all afternoon! A secret visit from Santa was also a massive surprise to everyone.
