Sadly, due to the current circumstances with Coronavirus we have cancelled our visit to The Sill next week (should have been on Tuesday 24th March 2020) but we do hope that this will be re-scheduled in the future.
World Book Day – World book day was, as ever, a huge success, with colourful characters from the wonderful world of fiction and non-fiction being celebrated at Greenhaugh Primary School. Inspiration for writing, measuring and design came from the wide range of genre from our children's favourite books and assembly took place in Mr. Gumpy's boat where happiness, love helpfulness, joy and smiling were some of the qualities that our children brought to share in it. What a lovely celebration, but also proof that our love of reading happens EVERY day!
We send a huge thank you to FOGS for making such a fantastic contribution to our new reading books project. The books have been purchased from Collins Big Cat and provide both classes with a range of exciting books to encourage the children to become confident and skilled readers.
Mrs Nixon organised a fundraising raffle before Christmas and from this we purchased additional books from Oxford University Press.
Inter school Multi-skills Competition - Class 1 travelled to Otterburn RTC on Wednesday 5th February to take part in a morning of multi-skills activities with children from our mini-partnership schools. They tried “curling” and hurdling, throwing and catching team games.
Class 1 have used the school grounds and surrounding environment to learn which trees are deciduous, or evergreen, as part of our Science curriculum and our understanding of the world around us. We created our classroom display using the colours that we could see on our lime, cherry, birch, horse chestnut and oak trees as we decided they were definitely deciduous. We are already thinking ahead to what the next season will bring and have noticed changes in the trees, weather and temperature already...brrrrrr! We are sure it is getting darker earlier and earlier too as the day length varies.
The whole school had a fabulous visit to Kielder Winter Wonderland on the last day of term before breaking up for the Christmas holidays. It was a truly magical day for all. The day included helping Mrs Christmas get ready for Christmas, helping in the Elves workshop, visiting the snowy owl barn and visiting the two beavers who gave their version of the Christmas story. Thank you FOGS for your help in making this visit possible.
Magic Lantern – Recently the children enjoyed a visit from Margaret who is part of a charity working with schools bringing art into the classroom to help the children explore a variety of topics. As part of this visit they looked at pieces of art showing a variety of landscapes by different artists. This is a Class 1 pupil working on a Cezanne watercolour!
