Last night, our children and their families enjoyed a Pyjama Party whilst watching the Polar Express. A wonderful evening had by all.
With thanks to our PTA The Friends of Croft Community School for filling us with Christmas cheer.
It’s that time of year when we are feeling very festive.
P4 enjoyed decorating the Christmas tree, with Christmas music playing everyone was getting into the spirit of things.
Lots of teamwork was involved and a lot of discussion as to which colour of tinsel to use and the order to do things.
Decisions, decisions, decisions!
We hope you like the finished look of the tree, as we certainly do.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Primary children had a fantastic time celebrating the end of their topic with a WOW day.
Parents and carers were invited to join the fun as the children took part in an African drumming session.
Not only did everyone learn new skills they also had great fun too!
A huge “Thank you!” to all of the parents and carers who came to school, your support is much appreciated.
Article 28: We all have the right to a good quality education.
The children in Primary had an exciting afternoon, where they performed their Christmas show to a packed audience.
They all looked the part and the singing was amazing.
In the show, there were children from China, Australia, Malawi and Poland.
The children shared how Christmas is celebrated around the world through words and songs.
Everyone has worked really hard over recent weeks to perfect their lines and learn lots of songs.
A huge “Thank you!” goes to Mrs Levee who orchestrated the whole show.
Please can all donations for feeding families come into school by tomorrow as some staff and students are going to drop the food at the packing centre. Please if you’d like to donate, send anything off the list below (not veg and meat) and it will make such a difference.
Today year 11 students visited New College Durham to hear a presentation from Project Choice about supported internships within the NHS. Some Year 11 students went on to Newcastle College for a tour of the campus and sixth form centre. Here students had a chance to speak with the teachers and support as well as looking facilities.
My favourite film is Sully because it can teach you that if you do become a pilot or any job you do, you can be right. If somebody says you have done wrong and you have done right and it puts you down, don’t let it, you have done your best and that is all that matters. YOU TRIED…
Today year 8 have been learning about Blogging.
They were asked to produce a review for the school blog.
Here is Finley’s review of his favourite game:
BMG drive is a crash test game where you could do driving tests, crash and free play.
You can modify cars so it has Supercharger, turbo and all sorts of engines and cars.
Bad things about BMG drive
It cost £15.00You need a gaming pc
And you need steam
Good things about BMG drive
It only takes 8GB of storage
You have a lot of fun playing around
You can get cars off World of mods
During P3’s art lesson today we looked at famous paintings by a variety of artists.
We discussed how we thought the people felt in each painting, for some of the pictures we got a mixed response.
Miss Robson explained that art work can be portrayed differently depending on who was looking at it. Sometimes someone might like a painting and someone else may not.
P3 then created their own emotions art work. They were given an emotion to paint and their peers then had to guess which emotion they had painted.
Good Evening Everyone
