Years 4 and 5 had a fantastic, fun-filled afternoon at Hetton School where we had a taster of a variety of inflatable activities. We climbed, bounced, balanced, jumped, aimed…you name it, we did it!
Travelling Teddy arrived at Easington Lane Primary at the end of May. This parcel had first been to France then Portugal. Inside the parcel, alongside Ted was; a variety of brochures, a lovely bouquet of flowers, artefacts carefully wrapped in a brown parcel and Ted’s suitcase with a little sweet treat for the class. The pupils had a lot of fun investigating, exploring and learning more about Portugal and France.
Class 1DS have been busy planting flowers and vegetables! After reading 'Billy's Sunflower' by Nicola Moon, we decided to plant our own seeds and see how tall they would grow. We have also planted some beans to see if we can grow a beanstalk as tall as...
As part of our WOW week in Year 4, we invited our family members in to school to work alongside us to design our own World Cup football strips. Some of us chose to base our designs on England, some on the teams we picked in our class sweep and some on ourselves. We think they have turned out great! C’mon England!
This week in Geography, we explored globes and atlases to learn more about the country we live in. We were able to identify, recognise and find the countries in the U.K and name the capitals of those four countries. We discussed the surrounding seas and labelled our own map. We also used the World map to find other countries around the world, including our friends in New Jersey, America.
Year 4 had a fun-filled morning playing bubble football as part of our topic on the World Cup. We rolled, bounced, flipped…some of us spent most of the games upside down! Our smiles, giggles and hair showed how much we enjoyed ourselves!
Class 1EK had a visit from Groundwork’s staff this week where they were able to learn more about recycling. They listened to the Charlie and Lola book, ”Look After Your Planet.” They talked about the different materials that can be recycled and opened bags of recycling in the classroom. Each child got the opportunity to choose something, describe what it was and then they had to put it in the correct recycling bin. We are recycling experts!
