This afternoon in primary they all celebrated their reading rewards with a picnic in the classroom and everyone had fun.
Very proud of our secondary sports leaders who spent their afternoon helping out with primary sports day! Staff had nothing but kind things to say about you all as you cheered the pupils on and encouraged them to try their hardest. (Here they all are helping set up each station) You’re all superstars 🌟
Yesterday Birch visited Seaham Beach for a trip out and were surprised by some very friendly guests of Dolphins, which was amazing. Once we were at the beach we found a lovely secluded safe spot and set up for our adventure with some pop up tents for shade and beach blankets for our picnic. During the morning we played beach games such as dodgeball and catch. Lots of us brought buckets and spades and done some digging and building sandcastles. After a lovely relaxing time playing with our friends we had our lunch and shared our best moments then Mrs Kennedy and Mr Walker took the children into the water for some wave jumping and to have a splash. Once we all got changed into our dry clothes everyone went to the Ice cream parlour and got a cone with sprinkles, syrup and a flake to end our magnificent day before traveling back to school.
Please find attached a letter which has information about some of the changes that we are implementing from September 2022. I hope you find this information useful and we will also post it on Class Dojo and the school Facebook page. We will email out the class timetables to your email addresses.
Should you require more information please contact school.
Summer rewards day is fast approaching.
Rewards day will take place on Monday 18th July.
We have Party Time inflatables coming again with some of their amazing inflatables, most of which are new to Croft this summer. Vision and CER, supply staff agencies that we use, are providing some lovely refreshments in the form of bottled water and ice cream and our lovely PTA, along side Travis Perkins, are providing us with the equipment to make our very own slip and slide, where pupils can slide down the soap and water covered tarpaulin on an array of inflatables. There will also be a face painting station.
ALL children will get to access the rewards day. It will be staggered to reflect Dojo points with EVERY child outside by 11 am.
By 1pm the ice cream van will be here, for all pupils to grab an ice cream or iced lolly of their choice.
If pupils are wanting to go on the slip and slide they MUST have a change of clothes as taxi’s will not allow pupils onto the taxi in wet clothing.
Looking at the weather, its meant to be a rather warm sunny day, so as a school we have decided that pupils can wear their own clothes, however, jeans are NOT to be worn. Could you please make sure that your child is well protected from the sun and if you would like sun cream to be re-applied, send a bottle into school with your child, with their name and class name on. We advise caps and summer hats to be worn and light clothing.
If you would not like your child to take part in the slip and slide or face painting, could you please send their class staff a message.
If you have any questions about the day, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Mr Harrison or myself.
(The soap being used on the slip and slide is bubble bath for sensitive skin and is fragrance free.)
On Monday Maple class had a very special treat.
We were invited to go up to our forest school area for the afternoon.
Mrs Watson was very naughty and was chasing us round squirting us with cold water, although we really enjoyed this as it was keeping us nice and cool,
We had such a fun time enjoying the space and playing with some of our friends from Hazel class too.
The fabulous Secondary students did an amazing job at building a pizza oven. We all learnt a little bit about health and safety as we weren’t allowed to go near this pizza oven as it is very HOT,
We enjoyed some garlic bread. The garlic was grown and picked from Croft School.
We then were soooo lucky and enjoyed some margarita and pepperoni pizzas.
They were SOOOOOO YUMMY.
We had the best afternoon.
Last week pupils from primary and secondary shared their work, on the local community, with Lewis creating the mural on the top yard. Parents, carers and people from the community also came into school and shared information, knowledge and images with pupils and Lewis to support with creating the ‘Community Mural’.
The pupils created some outstanding drawings and had clearly spent lots of time researching about the history and the local community to share with Lewis and support with the creating of the design.
During Outdoor learning today Birch class embedded their knowledge and understanding for Environment and the need to keep it clean and tidy. The class discussed the importance of littering and the impact this has on our society following last weeks PHSE lesson. All pupils adhered to personal safety whilst out litter picking around the school grounds by wearing the high vis vest, using a litter picker tool, refuse sacks and disposable gloves. At the end of the activity they all washed their hands thoroughly and discussed how much rubbish they had collected in a short space of time and it was three full sacks.
