18 students met or exceeded their reading targets on Accelerated Reader. Congratulations – your McDonalds will be delivered today!
Well done to the 39 secondary students who were entered into the raffle for reading effort – the winner was Callum in P6 and he has already claimed his £20 reward.
Children in P2 are accessing visual resources around the classroom to allow them to learn more independently. We are working really hard to learn our 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 times tables.
We are taking some responsibility for reaching our EHCP targets, supporting each other in achieving them.
The pupils in P4 have been learning about the five Northern Saints of Northumbria. During the visit to Durham Cathedral the children had the opportunity to dress up as a Saint such as St Bede, St Hilda, St Aiden, St Cuthbert and St Oswald. Even Mrs Ridley played the part of St Hilda and Miss Lee was assigned to be a Bishop for the morning before she became St Cuthbert once the story was retold of his death. The children then enjoyed their lunch together in the Monks’ garden as they would have done many years ago.
In Science, P5 have been investigating electrical circuits. At the beginning of the lesson, the children were asked to work in teams and were given a range of electrical equipment with the challenge of making a lightbulb light up. This was great fun and after a lot of discussion and attempts, circuits were made and the mission complete. We then investigated lighting more than one lightbulb at a time and we made conclusions as to why the bulb became dimmer.
