- About Us
On Monday, Class 6T were very proud to present Claire Hunt, the Deputy Manager of the RSPCA Felledge Animal Centre, a cheque for the £470 that we have raised to help and support the animals that are rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed by the centre.
Claire talked about how the RSPCA help animals which have suffered from animal cruelty and her role within the charity. She also showed the children the many toys which are used by the centre to stimulate the animals' minds and keep them active. Claire was very impressed with the work we have done to raise awareness and fundraise for the issue of animal cruelty.
We can't believe day 2 is over! We started out in the National Science museum; finding out about ancient transport, space and how we are made up into human beings. We found it all very interesting and couldn't wait for the National History Museum.
In the National history museum we particularly enjoyed looking at the life size statues of past and previous land and water mammals!
After a quick change at the hotel, we headed to Pizza Hut where we enjoyed unlimited pizza and salad! We then took a short journey to the Lyceum Theatre for the Lion King. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the show and what a show it was! It certainly doesn't disappoint!
The children in 6T are working collaboratively to 'make a difference' to the issue of animal cruelty in County Durham. As part of this project, the pupils have researched and created a web page on animal cruelty. It explains what it is, how you can help to tackle the issue, and the organisations and charities involved.
Some of the children in Year 6 took part in this year's BBC Radio 2's short story-writing competition. They worked very hard to create some gripping tales.
The stories are judged by a panel of experts, including Malorie Blackman and Francesca Simon, and are judged on specific criteria: originality, plot, characterisation, language and enjoyment.
We were very proud when Zack Blair got through to the second round with his fabulous story, 'The Lighthouse'.
We obviously have a future author in the making. Well done Zack!
