Today we celebrated our last day of school together in the hall led in a lovely assembly by our children in Year 5 and Year 6. Parents from both classes were invited and we had an absolutely fantastic turnout, the hall was packed!
The children’s performance was superb with a mixture of acting and singing from our Year 5 class and a combination of choir and solo singing from our Year 6 children.
It was a lovely way to end the year and prepare for celebrations over Christmas.
Extra special thanks to Mrs Carrahar and Mrs Wilson for taking the time to prepare and rehearse the show and all the songs with the children, and to Mrs Fenwick for assisting with the words and music on the day.
We made our own Christmas cards with an angel on the front. First we had to glue the angel’s wings and body together and then we decorated the angels face, deciding what colour we wanted the hair, eyes and mouth to be. After that we stuck the head onto the body and began decorating with glitter, sequins and shiny paper. We then stuck the angel onto the card and left it to dry. It was lots of fun making
On the 14th of December eleven of our Y6 children went along to ‘The Event’ (hosted by St Joseph’s RC Academy in Hebburn) where we met Bishop S
Today (21st December 2016) Year 6 visited Cheviot Court Care Home for the elderly, where we sang our production ‘One Night In Bethlehem’ to them. We sang several carols in unison as a choir, as solos and in two parts. The old people had never heard them before and were thrilled. Afterwards we chatted to them and gave them each a Christmas Card – written personally for each resident by Jessica Amess in our class.
It was a great privilege to be able to share our time and talents with them and to be able to live out the Gospel Values in such a small way in our community.
To celebrate our first Reconciliation and the end of our RE topic in class, Year 3 took part in a class liturgy. We listened to some music as we passed a candle round to say a prayer and then read the story of Zacchaeus the tax collector. Our mission was to tell our parents and families that we love them.
These past 2 weeks year 4 have been learning about Ancient Greece.
We learnt that Greece conquered a lot of land, but then the Romans came a long and took most of the land that they had.
In DT we have been designing pop up books and how they work.
