Class 2 have been busy creating speech bubbles and shields to share information about themselves. We are proud of the display we have created.
Red Nose Day wasn’t quite like in other years but we all entered into the spirit of raising money for this very good cause. We started the day with our Celebration Assembly finding out how our money makes a big difference to many children and adults in the UK and across the world.
The children really impressed us with their creativity and originality with amazing Red Nose Day bandanas, masks, headbands or eye patches. School Councillors had the very tricky job of judging the competition. There were wonderful examples of reusing old red noses and other materials you already had at home rather than new plastic that would just be thrown away after one use. Thank you to all who made such super efforts to take part in a more environmentally friendly way and thank you for helping to raise £70 for those who aren’t as fortunate as ourselves.
Wow, Skiddaw class have been settling back into school by reading and sharing two wonderful but very different stories – The Secret Sky Garden by Linda Sarah and The Promise by Nicola Davies. In these very different tales, the characters both turn to being outside, nature, music, friendship and colour to help them feel good. We’ve followed their lead and have been doing the same!
The children told me today the highlights of their first week back have included…
- painting colourful kite pictures
- playing with friends
- playing games of tig together and running a mile or more
- playing musical cup games and drumming
- reading chapters of our class story – The Ickabog
- using our amazing imaginations in drama to create believable back stories for characters and
- planting seeds and putting up our new bird feeder
See some snapshots here of our week.
Our Year five and six pupils all enjoyed a live link to the Houses of Parliament as part of their learning during UK Parliament Week.
We learnt all about the House of Commons and the House of Lords, how laws are made, the role of Mr Speaker, elections, voting and much much more!
Scafell Class were quite eager to pass a bill to reduce the school week to 4 days, however Baroness Farraday and Lord Dean, who sit in the House of Lords, opposed this motion.
