Today Year 6 were visited by the NSPCC. We focused on the message ‘Speak out. Stay safe’. We listened carefully about the work of Childine and why we may contact them and how we could. We discussed what is okay and not okay in our lives and how we can speak to a trusted adult if something is not okay.
On Friday Year 4 were invited to St Paul’s church Jarrow to celebrate the feast of St Benet Biscop. The mass was attended by other schools from our parish.
The children learned some interesting facts about St Benet Biscop.
We all had a lot of fun at the KS2 Christmas Party! The photos speak for themselves!
Today the children in Year 6 had a fantastic time at the KS2 disco. They danced the afternoon away and were able to take part in games. They enjoyed meeting one of Santa’s helpers and of course, the favourite part of their time at the party was the snow machine. The children had a great time showing off their party outfits.
Year Five had a brilliant time at their Christmas Party. There was lots of laughter, dancing and games. They all looked super smart!
This week Year 6 and Year 4 joined together to learn some French. Each pair created sentences in French by using a ‘fortune teller grid’. We had lots of fun and the children were able to construct the sentences and they were able to say them with very good pronunciation! Bravo les enfants!
Today we were joined by Mrs Gray. We explored the courses of the River Tyne and explored features that we may see in those courses. Mrs Gray was very impressed with our knowledge so we were then introduced to the processes of erosion, transportation and deposition. We were then challenged to make our own models using play dough and labelled the features. It was an excellent lesson.
In class worship today, the children gathered whilst singing ‘The Servant King.’ They placed both hands together like a bowl where they placed a sad or scary memory. They then blew on their hands to blow the memory away. They listened to the Word based on Luke 24:13-35 led by Ellenor, Grace and Millie. Going forth, the children decided they would take a few moments during the day to say a quiet prayer.
In the spring term Year 4 will be taking part in a skipping competition at St Joseph’s secondary school. We have been practising some of the techniques we will need for the competition. Some of them are very tricky!
Year Five visited the Winter Gardens to find out more about ‘Rainforests’ and why it is important to protect them. They researched facts about the detrimental effect that deforestation is having on humans, animals and plants so that they could write a persuasive letter to some of our World Leaders explaining its devastating impact.
They had a fabulous time and their behaviour was outstanding. Well done Year Five!
