Activities, Visits & Trips 2019-20
Today we have been celebrating Harvest in school. Each class had a go at making their own food before we tasted it all this afternoon.
Our class loved making bread and having a go at designing their own roll.
We have had a very busy week in Class 4. On Monday we had our Paralympics themed afternoon where we had a go at writing fact files about a chosen Paralympian.
On Tuesday we took part in a Handball Festival at Stanley Crook Primary school. All of the children were brilliant and our three teams achieved 3rd, 4th and 6th place finishes. Everybody really enjoyed the morning and represented our school fantastically.
On Wednesday night we took some children to take part in our local Tag Rugby league. Although some of the children had never played Tag Rugby, they all showed a fantastic attitude and picked up the skills very quickly.
We played 3 matches and only lost by 2 points each time, which was a great effort considering it was our first time.
Today we have had our ‘Jeans for Genes’ day in school, we have raised money for a fantastic cause and all of the class looked great in their jeans.
On Tuesday we will be taking part in a Handball festival at Stanley Crook Primary School. We will be leaving school at 9:15am and returning at 12:15pm.
I know all of the children are very excited as it’s the first festival we’ve had for nearly 2 years.
Children will be changing into school PE kits, but they can bring their own hoodies/jumpers and tracksuit bottoms to school to get changed into in the event of bad weather.
We have been offered the opportunity to take part in the Heart Project. This project is based on keeping active in school and at home with friends and family, promoting an active lifestyle. As a result, all children in Classes 3 and 4 will be sent home either tonight or Monday with a backpack full of sports equipment. This equipment is for the children to keep and has been donated by Bishop Leisure. There is also a project booklet which contains 6 weeks worth of simple activities for the children to complete using their new equipment.
If you get the opportunity please can you take pictures of your children using the equipment and send them in through Class Dojo.
At the end of the 6 weeks, children will receive a medal and certificate if they have completed the activities their books.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
Just a quick reminder that we will be going for our first swimming session tomorrow afternoon. Can all children please remember their swimming costume/trunks, towels, goggles (if they are needed) and a swimming cap. Swimming caps can usually be purchased for £1.50 at the baths.
This afternoon we’ve really enjoyed learning all about Shrove Tuesday and eating our pancakes.
Our class 3/4 bubble having fun in the snow!
As part pf Black History Month we’ve been looking at significant individuals in history. This afternoon we had a sport theme and we looked at the impact Jesse Owens made at the 1936 Berlin Olympics in Hitler’s Germany, winning 4 gold medals. One of the events he won was the long jump, which we tried ourselves.
This week in Science we have been exploring the effects of gravity and air resistance. We were tasked with creating a parachute that would support an egg being dropped from a height without smashing. We had to think about the balance between the weight of the object, the surface area of the parachute and the materials we were using.
We have a new addition to Class 4!! Each class decided to make their own scarecrow for Harvest. This is Farmer Bob, Class 4’s very originally named class scarecrow who comes complete with his own PPE.
This afternoon we’ve been investigating the effects of gravity on different objects. We did some research into who Sir Isaac Newton was and why he is such an important scientific figure. We then used newton meters to investigate how and why the amount of gravity acting on an object changes.
The Forest School children really enjoyed their afternoon exploring the wildlife garden. They whittled sticks to make fishing rods and explored the area to find different types of insects and bugs.
Since we have come back to school we have been doing a lot of work in PSHE about settling in and how we feel in new situations. We shared ideas for our class charter about what we think our rules and expectations should be and then we created comic strips about new scenarios. We also shared stories about how we have felt in different situations…
