Y5 and Y6 showcased some of their learning about China at the very end of last term, with an amazing dragon dance, Chinese food tasters, and Chinese music and traditional tales. Well done for such a great showcase! You can see the dragon above!
We take great pride in the positive feedback that we receive from parents about the effective partnership we offer with regular updates about news and events that take place in our school community. This includes parental opportunities to link with their child's Class Facebook pages as well as the opportunity to see what their children achieve on a day to day basis using social media such as Tapestry and Seesaw accounts. (Secure methods to see photos and videos of learning experiences). We also have a school Twitter account and the weekly newsletter.
Happy half term! Half-way through our year and Year 1 learn all about shapes and halves with pizzas! It’s a newsletter of halves this week!
Australia day in Key Stage 1, early years compose their own website, whilst Africa and China teaching takes a hold in KS2!
Our parent workshop programme begins soon! And yurt activities are on the increase! Great team work on Wednesday from KS1 children in Forest School, who worked together to make a ‘clove hitch knot’ to tie their Aboriginal huts together in the yurt!
Snow business this week in KS2 forest school! Key stage 2 children wrapped up warm with most having gloves and hats to sustain an afternoon in the snow!
We were delighted to welcome Feyi Awotona to school who supports the North East of England African Community Association. Feyi was able to share traditional African folktales, and showcase some African artefacts to the children as part of their study about Africa this term. (Shame we couldn’t arrange a learning expedition to go to Africa!).
Merry Christmas everyone!
Year 3 and Year 4 ‘Takeover Woodhorn’ day is a huge success!
Christmas dinners nearly for everyone!
Our fifth birthday when many memories were made!
