This week saw the first Science Technology, Engineering and Maths (or STEM) week. The children have been inspired to plan and explore experiments; they have welcomed visitors into their classrooms and assemblies, and they have been hugely engaged in STEM activities. While the photographs showcase the work they don’t do justice to the scale and huge enthusiasm evident in the children. (more…)
We were delighted that so many children made a really big effort to develop their ideas for designing a costume or outfit for their chosen character on World Book Day. Thanks for all your support. They had a great day and were hyper excited! We saw so much creativity and imagination from the children, and they had a much better understanding of book day being all about stories, reading and books. (more…)
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!). (more…)
Merry Christmas everyone!
Year 3 and Year 4 ‘Takeover Woodhorn’ day is a huge success!
