World Book Day
Today we dressed up as our favourite book characters to celebrate world book day.
We had an assembly to share our costumes and then shared some of our favourite books with our friends and teachers.
Today our Extreme Reading competition winners visited Waterstones book shop in Sunderland.
They were great ambassadors for our school, and Jude said that we were the best group that had visited this week!
We had a good look around the children's section of the book shop and Jude read a story to us.
We were so impressed with all of the competition entries. We thought that we would share them with you all.
Thank you to all parents and carers for your support with this competition.
We had a visit from the School Nurse who came to talk us about having healthy teeth.
She showed us how to brush our teeth and told us that we should:
🦷 Use a pea sized amount of toothpaste on a dry toothbrush.
🦷 Brush the outside, the inside and the bumpy bits.
🦷 Move our brush in circles or backwards and forwards as we brush.
🦷 And finally …. Spit the toothpaste out and don’t rinse our mouths out.
She also told us that we should all go and visit the dentist regularly.
We're having a very busy week at school with parties, Christmas activities and lots of Christmas singing!
Today we had two very special visitors in school who came to see all of the children and bring them a special gift!
The children were very excited to meet Santa and Mrs Claus!
Thank you for all of the kind donations on Friday for our Christmas Jumper day.
We raised £121.47 for Daft as a Brush charity!
The children enjoyed showing off their jumpers and having their Christmas lunch.
Today we welcomed Kalma Juniors into school to do some taster yoga sessions with some of our children. They had great fun having a go at the different poses and we think they look amazing!
The children were also challenged to work together to pass a hoop around the circle without letting go of hands. It was very tricky but as you can tell from the pictures, the children were excellent at it and showed great teamwork!
Children were very excited to come to school dressed in spots and Pudsey clothes today. We talked about the reason for joining in with Children in Need day and did lots of fun activities such as biscuit decorating, cake making and designing our own Pudsey Bear.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed, we raised a fantastic £156.67 to donate to Children in Need!
Today we were privileged to welcome to our school, a real life Olympic sports person! Safiyyah Syeed is a female boxer!
She talked to our children and grown ups about her journey to the Olympics and broke down many pre-conceptions about what women in sport can achieve. The biggest message that we hope your children learned, is that with a positive attitude, hard work and determination, we can all succeed in achieving our goals! Thank you Safiyyah!
Children enjoyed their first Creative Club yesterday after school. We had a very special visitor, Lynn from Rosebud Ceramics who brought clay decorations for the children to decorate. Lynn was very impressed with their painting skills and said how polite they were. She took the decorations back to her workshop to glaze and bake in the kiln. She will bring them back to school when they are finished, just in time for the children to take home at Christmas. We think you will be amazed when you see the finished decorations!
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Harvest Festival. The food has been collected and taken to a local food bank to help those who need it.
We had a visit from the Super Splash Heroes who came all the way from Northumbrian Water to help us find out about ways we can save water. It was very interesting and we found out lots of different ways we can help save water.
If you would like a water saving kit for your home you can go onto the Northumbrian Water website and you can order one free of charge.
The Super Spash Heroes were lots of fun and we had a fantastic afternoon!
