- About Us
This week, 6O have been continuing their work towards earning the 'John Muir' Award alongside OASES. As part of their 'discover, explore, conserve, share', the class have taken part in tree planting in the field.
The children planted a range of trees, including beech, hazel and cherry. Whilst doing so, they gained valuable experience in conserving nature, working together as a team and using a range of specialised tools safely.
Fingers crossed our 22 new trees will grow big and strong over the coming years and become part of 6O's legacy at Crook Primary.
Today (11th February) is Safer Internet Day. Crook Primary has joined forces with other schools across the globe to work "Together for a better internet". Our E-Cadets, pictured, led a fantastic assembly introducing the rest of the school to the aims of Safer Internet Day. They explained how the internet is used by most people in our community daily, and how to stay safe while online. They also introduced the idea of an 'online identity' and encouraged the rest of the school to explore what this means. Thank you for your hard work E-Cadets!
In our new topic, "Electrifying!", Year 6 have been learning how to interpret and draw circuit diagrams using universal symbols. They then had to become electricians to identify and fix problems within electrical circuits.
Today, 6O were specially selected to visit Parkside Academy for a basketball training session with Durham Wildcats Basketball Women's team.
The children's behaviour was exemplary and they really impressed the team with their skills. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to learn and be inspired.
