Children from across KS2 took part in the Netball World Cup at Staindrop Academy on Wednesday 10th July. They played very well and got through to the semi final. They were beaten and finished 4th out of the 12 schools taking part. Excellent effort, well done!
Class 4 went to a cricket festival on Wednesday 3rd July at Bishop Auckland Cricket Club. As part of the All Stars cricket programme the children took part in many different activities trying to score as many points as possible. On the afternoon the children played three different games of cricket and we teamed up with another school for some friendly competition in diamond cricket. The children and teachers had a fabulous day and they represented the school perfectly.
Come on Lionesses!
We are so excited for tonight’s semi-final game against USA. We have been following all the teams throughout the competition and in celebration of England getting into the semi-finals we had our own World Cup football competition. We wore our football tops and made England flags. Good luck tonight Lionesses!
It was an exciting day across all classes as we came together to celebrate ‘Spanish Day’. Each class was given a topic to research which included, numbers, colours, songs and stories in Spanish as well as looking at cities and football teams. The children loved tasting the Spanish foods. The day was finished off by the whole school coming together for a celebration assembly where each class showcased what they had learnt. ‘Tuvimos un día increíble!’
Children and staff had a fantastic day celebrating ‘Pyjamarama 2019’. Everyone came into school wearing their pyjamas and brought along their favourite bedtime story. The day was organised to raise money for the Book Trust who want every child to have a bedtime story. Everyone had a fantastic day and we would like to say thank you to everyone who supported such a great cause.
It has been an exciting week across all classes as we’ve come together to celebrate ‘French Week’. The children have researched France, learnt songs and stories in French as well as tasted foods. The week was finished off by the whole school coming together for a celebration assembly where each class showcased what they had learnt. We also have some beautiful and artistic displays in the hall as a reminder of the week. Fantastique!
Today children from across the school have had a taster session of the Skip2Bfit workshop. These unique skipping workshops are about motivating the children to succeed, whilst at the same time encouraging them to exercise. Skip2BFit worked in the school throughout the day seeing the children in their class groups for sessions, with a 15 minute assembly at the end of the day. In the sessions they showed the children how to skip, breaking it down into 5 simple steps and then demonstrating what the children can do when you practiced, showing them the technique that boxers learn to skip by. Everyone had a fantastic time whilst keeping fit and having fun!
Well done to everyone who contributed to this year’s Red Nose Day. We had a fun day with lots of red! We had a cake sale, joke competition and non-uniform day. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we have raised £200.25, which is amazing!
