This year, we celebrated in two different ways. First of all, we asked all children to bring in their favourite book to share with the rest of their class. Secondly, as we are trying to increase our use of a wide range of vocabulary in school, instead of dressing up as a book character – children dressed up as a particular word.
Class 5 have been working with Durham Agency Against Crime as part of their Mini Police scheme. Over the last few weeks they have been learning about anti-social behaviour and the role of the Police. They have even learned the phonetic alphabet.
Their assembly last week showed everyone the types of anti-social behaviour we should be looking out for in our community.
Children now have a role as a ‘Mini Police’ officer at play times to help keep everyone safe.
Class 5 and 6 had a great day on Wednesday 29th January with staff from Show Racism the Red Card including a coaching session from ex-Newcastle footballer John Anderson. They learned all about discrimination and stereotypes. “We had so much fun but learned lots at the same time!”
Thank you to everyone who attended our musical celebration on Tuesday 17th December 2019, we were treated to songs sang by the school choir as well as Class 4 performing ‘Jingle Bells’ on the recorders. The whole school are extremely proud of their musical efforts as were the adults who came to watch.
Children from our school choir have been spreading a joyous message throughout the local area this December, with their beautiful singing. People old and young throughout the town have enjoyed listening to the children. Their performances have taken place at Barrington Lodge Care Home, Devonshire House Care Home, St Helen’s Care Home, The Well as well as Sainsbury’s. It has been a very busy time for the children but they have enjoyed every performance!
Well done to everyone in all classes for their hard work and dedication this year when practising for the Christmas Performances. The children have put in so much effort when learning their lines and also the songs. All of the costumes were fantastic and the children have made everyone proud!
