Hooray for Stay and Play!
Parents of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 enjoyed a visit to their children’s classrooms this week for the first stay and play of the academic year. It was great to see everyone and to hear from parents what the children are saying about school! The next one will be held next half term. (more…)
Welcome back to school everyone! And what a start to this academic year with every year group having launched their new topics with great style this week! (more…)
This is the second Year that our school has taken children to our capital city. Our brilliant children showed once again their independence and fantastic team spirit as they visited some of London’s most famous landmarks. (more…)
Children, parents and staff were all immensely proud on Thursday this week, when we took Y1-Y6 to the Phoenix Theatre stage in Blyth.
Well done KS2 for a great CVPS Sports day! Our next summer event is coming soon at Blyth’s Phoenix Theatre!
Big Play Day at Cramlington Learning Village
Y5 and Y6 attended the CLV music festival this week and had an amazing time alongside children from five other primary schools. The children were put into instrumental sections (our children chose a mixture of voice, keyboard and guitar) and took part in intense rehearsals so that, by the end of the day, they were able to put on a concert that brought all of the students together as one big orchestra! Performance pieces included Don’t Stop Believin’, Pachelbel’s Canon, Hit the Road Jack, It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing) and Blaydon Races. The children’s behaviour was outstanding, their musical skills shone, and they put on a fantastic show. Well done! (more…)
This week our classes have shown great enthusiasm for the usual wide range of activities and learning opportunities that take place. We are starting serious preparation for our end of term theatre productions and some children will have lines to practise, and costumes to source during the two week break. Thank you for your support for this. (more…)
And so compulsory summer testing time begins…
Year 1 have been busy in forest school this week. You can see them completing a survey to find which flowering plants grow most on the field. They used a bar chart to determine that dandelions are most common, but also found slender speedwell, selfheal, common mouse-ear and wild sweet peas! They discussed how to make it a fair test and how to remove bias. Kirsten has also been doing some wonderful ‘Enormous Turnip’ learning in nursery this past couple of weeks! I’m sad I didn’t get to taste the Turnip soup! (more…)
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! (more…)
