Everyone loved wearing an old jumper/T-shirt to school for our ‘Save the Children’ Christmas jumper day, which we decorated with festive additions and used sewing, sticking or stapling, tin-foil sculpting, drawing and cutting skills to name, but a few!
Thank you to all who sent in recycled bits and bobs that were shared and added to our creations.
Please donate online to this worthy charity if you would like to.
Northumberland National Park Authority has this week very kindly given us a beautiful book ‘The Lost Words.’
It is a stunning book of Poetry and Artwork and was the inspiration for the exhibition that we were going to see at The Sill, before Covid sadly stopped us in March this year. We are very grateful to NNPA for this lovely gift and we will look forward to creating our own exhibition in the New Year as poets and artists ourselves. Watch out for our own exhibition of children's work on the News Blog!
Our valued reading dogs, Boo and Nell visited school this week as reading volunteers. They were very welcomed, and inspired the children to read about The Great Fire of London; The Shang Dynasty and Flash Harriet and the mystery of the fiendish footprints; and also appeared as characters in ‘The King and the Moon’ story planning. They are already looking forward to their next visit.
During the building of the new classroom onto our school, some of our wildlife area had a bit of a tough life!! Today we have seen the re-planting of these areas and we will look forward to seeing next summer's happy insects.
Class 1’s sculpture day was enjoyed by all the children where they created 3D fireworks and set them off…safely…with tissue paper flames and wonderful dancing. Thank you to everyone for sending in recycled materials so that we could continue our exciting projects.
On Thursday 15th October, we had our autumnal Harvest walk up to St. Aidan’s Church. Despite, unfortunately, not being able to invite you, we hope your child shared their experience with you about how lovely it was and we picked the perfect weather. On our return back to school, we all enjoyed a much-deserved drink of hot chocolate. Yummy! We would like to thank you all so much for your generous donations to our Harvest Festival collection for the Food Bank.
Our children loved their walk from school to the community orchard where each child picked one special apple for our school trees. We celebrated with apples dipped in honey and oaty crunch. Class 1 learned the fractions whole, half and quarters through apple art back at school. Class 2 are going to apple print The Earth!
