Well done to everyone in class 2 who came to the Quadkids athletics on Thursday afternoon, it was great to watch you all participating and trying your best at sprinting, running, throwing and jumping. We are very proud with how you represented our school. As a special treat for all the hard work this week, the children got to spend Friday with Archie, Mrs.Carter's dog (and enjoy extra choosing time and an ice lolly too!)
Last week we were very busy making masks and learning dance moves ready to join in with the Darlington Community Carnival in June. Class 2 will be representing endangered animals from Antarctica! I hope that as many of the children as possible will be able to come and join in on the day - more details about this nearer the time.
We have made a really good start on our allotments over the last two weeks, weeding, digging and planting, let's hope that things begin to grow soon! In class, most of the beans have started to grow and we have also planted sunflower seeds. We will hopefully be out tending the allotments Thursday afternoons, weather permitting, to observe any growing.
I have added some more games onto all the children's active learn accounts. If you have time, please encourage your child to practice these maths skills over the holidays. Thank you.
What a busy last week of term! We had special church services with it being Holy week, which had us waving palms on our way over to Church. We all enjoyed the 'From farm to fork' trip at Tesco, especially at the end when we were able to try some of the food! Egg decorating was fun, well done to all the brilliant and creative designs and to the class 2 winner, Sophie. The egg hunt was a great way to end the Spring Term. I hope that you all have a fantastic Easter break and look forward to seeing you again for the Summer term when our Topic will be 'In the Garden'. Happy Easter everyone!
It was lovely to see so many signs of Spring on our visit to the library this week - daffodils, crocuses, snowdrops, blossom and sunshine. The children have also enjoyed investigating the percussion instruments and creating a 'musical' story about the life of James Cook. They had a great afternoon with Mrs.Gunnell making their own model Endeavour ship and testing to find out if it really did float or sink! On Friday everyone had a great time jogging around the school grounds for Sport Relief. Please remember it's egg decorating time next week, children can bring in a hard boiled egg and any bits they would like to use to decorate it .
This week has been very busy in class 2! We came into school on Monday morning to find a ransom note, we had to follow clues and rescue Mog from danger. We also had our class Agape and a visit from Mrs.Mason and baby Joseph. It was lovely to meet with parents on the open evenings and to see so many fantastic book character outfits on Friday.
The children have really enjoyed this topic during the first half of the Spring term. It has included creating our own monsters, facts about Mount Everest, making a Yeti and writing a non-chronological report about our invented creature.
This topic will continue during the second half of the Spring term when we will be looking at the adventures of Captain James Cook.
