- About Us
This morning we had a visit from Gail from Warburton's. She discussed with the children about the benefits of healthy eating and recommended food they should be trying. We watched a video about bread is made then we got to make our own sandwich. We made sure we chose healthy ingredients to put in our sandwich then we ate them up!
Just a reminder that it is our Warburton's workshop on Friday. Please can you ensure all forms are returned to school as soon as possible,
Last week we had a trip to the park to stimulate our senses. In our English groups we wrote down what could see, feel, smell, hear and taste at the park, we had to use our imagination for some of the senses. We worked together and came up with some great noun phrases and descriptive sentences. We are going to be using this trip to help us with our big write this week which is a description of the park. Hopefully one of our big writes will win 'writer of the week' in this weeks assembly.
Yesterday we paid a visit to Crook Fire Station and learnt more about how the fire service has evolved since 1666 when the Great Fire of London happened. The children got to see the various types of uniforms the firemen wear depending on the type of emergency they're responding to. Miss Greaves even got to dress up as a fireman!
We were lucky enough to watch one of the fireman come down the pole. The children were shown all of the different equipment on the fire engine and got to have a sit inside. Finally the children had the chance to squirt the hose. It was an excellent afternoon and the children behaved impeccably.
On Monday years 2 and 3 had a lovely afternoon as part of our dojo treat watching Boss Baby and eating sweets and popcorn! It was really nice to mix with another year group and spend some time having fun!
On Thursday 26th April at 3:30pm is our summer parents meeting in Miss Greaves' room. This will be to discuss timetables, trips and the upcoming SAT's.
On Wednesday 25th April on the afternoon we are finally going back to the fire station! We will be walking across so please ensure children have a waterproof coat and adequate footwear. We will be back for school finishing.
On Wednesday 2nd May, children in Miss Adlington's, Miss Greaves and Mrs Nicholson's English groups will be attending the park as part of our English lessons this half term. If the weather is bad we will change it to the following day.
In PE the children in 2G have been learning a range of dance moves and getting to grips with how to stay in beat with the music. The children then got into groups and worked together to choreograph their own dance routines. They only practiced twice before performing to the rest of the class to the music. I was so impressed with how much effort they put into it and was blown away by the routines that they had put together. We definitely have some future dance stars in the class!
