It’s all Greek to me!

A huge thank you to all of the family and friends of our Year 4 children for attending our Greek WOW morning. It was great to see so many of you at school. We all had a super morning painting our Greek vases, writing hidden messages to each other using the Greek alphabet and even tasting Greek food whilst being blindfolded. Have a look at the photos for some fab reactions.

Exploring Ancient Greece

This week, Year 4 visited Palace Green Library to take part in an Ancient Greek workshop. We had fun handling real Greek artefacts, exploring the museum gallery, building our own temples, playing traditional Greek games and even performing our own Greek play. A super way to kick off our Ancient Greek topic!

Groovy Greeks

We started our new topic this week…The Groovy Greeks. As well as writing the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, we spent some time researching our own lines of interest around Ancient Greece. Why don’t you ask us what we found out?

Inflatables Fun!

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!

We aim to provide a lively, creative curriculum to challenge and motivate our pupils and enable them to participate in a range of high quality learning opportunities. The schools excellent facilities enhance the quality of our children’s education. We have recently extended our building and increased our outdoor facilities further, this has enhanced the opportunities that we can provide our children (although we are always seeking to make them even better).  However our greatest resource is our skilled and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide the best teaching and learning experience for each child.

We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school and to be enthusiastic about learning. We will nurture and encourage pupils and hopefully, inspire them to be active participants in their own development and education.

Reuse Reduce Recycle!

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!
