P2 have had an amazing time this week. We have researched different types of puppet then made our own. In small groups, children have written and produced their own puppet shows.
Video footage to follow.
Again, a group of Y10 students walked down to the local care home to volunteer and help the residents and staff with activities. We are so very proud of our students. The manager of the care home made them all certificates to thank them and even invited them to stay for lunch. She told me on the phone that they are the most polite and well mannered children she has ever come across and a credit to the school. They will hopefully be volunteering here each week, I think the care home would love them to come every day, they have even been invited to one of the residents birthday parties!
P 10 visited Consett Police Station and Custody Suite today. They were given a tour and had opportunities to use the breathalyser machine, experience a stay in the cells, experience booking in and take a look around a police van.
What an action packed day we had celebrating the end of our ‘Wonderful World ‘ topic. We created some recycled art with Miss Newton using bottle tops. We worked with Ruth Thompson, a willow weaver where we learnt how to weave willow to create an amazing tunnel and dome in our outdoor area-we can’t wait to play with it. We also created some large natural pieces of artwork, making a traditional ‘God’s eye’ and wooden beaded mobile. Parents and carers enjoyed the fun too.
P5 had some welcome visitors this afternoon. Staff from Co-op Funeralcare popped in with a box full of Easter eggs! Everyone was able to choose an egg to take home and we even shared some with our primary friends.
What a generous and kind thing to do. Thank you Co-op Funeralcare! Happy Easter!
In P3 this term the topic has been ‘Wonderful World’.
We have learnt about how things grow, animal habitats and how to look after the environment around us.
On the WOW day we had a great time using recycled bottle tops to create a piece of art work.
We also enjoyed willow weaving in the morning.
In the afternoon we created a habitat to keep the insects safe.
We hope you like our bug hotel.
We decorated Easter eggs and then went back outside to do some more willow weaving.
Another lovely day.
