Year 6 enjoyed their Christmas Party!
Year 6 designed and made Christmas stampers using polystyrene tiles, we then created our own Christmas wrapping paper using paint and brown paper to sell at our Christmas fayre.
To work out what profit the school could make we calculated how much each sheet had cost (including paint) and what we would could sell them for.
We also created some hot chocolate reindeer gift packs. These contain hot chocolate power, chocolate drops and marshmallows – everything needed for an amazing hot chocolate drink!
Year 6 were exceptionally lucky to have a visit from craft company who came in to work with the children to decorate ceramic baubles. It was great fun and the children tried extremely hard.
This year the children in year 5 and 6 performed a play called ‘The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas’. The choir and actors put a lot of effort into learning the lines of the play and the songs. We were very impressed with the children’s efforts and behaviour throughout. We would like to thank any parents or carers who came to watch and support the children, we hope you enjoyed it.
Our Year 3 and 4 children loved performing their Christmas performance to all their parents and carers.
On Thursday 7th December 2017 4 teams from Year 5 took part in the Hoops4health tournament at Temple Park. All the teams played well and two of our teams progressed to the knock out stages. Unfortunately, we were knocked out in the quarter finals. All the children had a fantastic time and represented the school brilliantly.
On Wednesday 1st November, 3 squads of 12 children went to Boldon School to take part in a Rugby Tournament. The children played extremely well, developed fantastic team skills and had exemplary sportsmanship. One of our teams – Team B came first in their group, receiving a medal each. The other two teams came second in their groups. A great result!
This term, Year 3 have been studying Hinduism in RE and had the amazing opportunity to take part in a Hindu workshop where we learned about Diwali, the Festival of Light. Some of us even got the chance to dress up in fantastic costumes to act out the story of Rama and Sita. A fantastic time had by all!
