On Wednesday Reception hosted a Team Building Afternoon where we invited parents to come and take part in numerous activities. The children and parents were divided into six different teams and then had to tackle a number of challenges trying to get the highest score. It was great to see the different teams working together but also displaying a competitive nature as they successfully completed the stations.
The stations included a bean bag throw, matching pairs, passing a ball, making words, throwing a foam javelin and matching 2D shapes.
The eagerly anticipated results are in, here are the scores:
Pink Team - 473 points
Red Team - 501 points
Yellow Team - 320 Points
Green Team - 336 points
Blue Team - 383 points
Purple Team - 511 points
Thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to the Purple Team, you will be able to collect your prize today!
Emily and her Mum have agreed to brave the chop as they donate their hair to the Little Princess trust. This is a charity that makes real hair wigs and donates them free to girls up to the age of 24 who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or other diseases.
Please find the link below if you would like to make a donation. This is a great cause and we are all so proud of Emily!
Firstly, thank you so much for all your help with the costumes. Each and every child looked incredible, bugtacular!
We really enjoyed celebrating the end of our 'Mini Beasts' topic. We ate a feast of creepy crawly goodness and were full to the brim. We also enjoyed singing and dancing. So much so, we took ourselves on our mini beast hunt around the school singing one of our favourite songs. Take a look...
Mini beasts are everywhere but do you know how strong they are? They are incredibly strong mini beasts. We decided to use their tactics and put it to the test. By working together we had to transport a cup of water from one side to the other by passing the water from cup to cup.
We have had so much fun being the most perfect ants for the afternoon. We can confidently tell you that working together makes things a lot easier!
Last week the children got to experience their first trip since arriving at Crook Primary School. We ventured out to Hamsterley Forest in search on mini beasts and to investigate their habitats. The children broke off into small groups and had to search for any insects they could find, we were turning over logs, scrapping through mud and searching trees.
The children behaved excellently as they traveled around the surrounding areas and gave a great impression of Crook Primary School. The children played pooh sticks off a bridge, completed the Highway Rat trail and also got time to explore the different climbing frames on offer.
