- About Us
Yesterday, Year 1 had their Christmas party! We played musical bumps, pass the parcel and Christmas corners! A huge thank you for all the food contributions, the children had a marvellous feast after all their dancing!
A huge thank you to all of you that kindly donated to the Salvation Army Present Appeal this Christmas! Some of the Year 1 children walked over to the church yesterday to deliver their presents and handwritten letters. They were greatly appreciated by the staff at the centre.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and can't wait to see you again in the new year of 2019!
Year 1 Team
On Tuesday afternoon, Year 1 ventured out to visit Shildon Railway Museum where we had a wonderful time carrying out science experiments. First of all, we got to explore the effects that salt has on ice and discussed the reasons why we use salt on the roads during the winter.
Next, we investigated how many different colours we could see through a glass prism when we held it up to the light. Lots of us could recognise the colours of the rainbow! We were blown away when our guide, Gareth, was able to show us how water can change the direction of light!
For our last experiment, we used sugar, ice, cream and a lot of shaking to create the most delicious ice cream! We even got to taste it at the end.
To round up a spectacular visit to the museum we enjoyed a Christmas story in the back of an old train and created stain glass window designs. We can't wait to take them home and put them up in the window!
