Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you all have a wonderful time with your families. 
We have a had a very busy and fun packed week. Don’t we look splendid in our Christmas jumpers and party clothes. We’ve enjoy a Christmas dinner, a visit to Santa and a class party. 

Week 4

This week we enjoyed a trip to the cinema to see Jungle Cruise as part of National Film Week. We throughly enjoyed it! In Geography we have finding out about extreme weather and volcanoes as part of our Extreme Earth Topic. Rocksteady was also great fun and we found out all about song composition and The Beetles. Please read our wonderful writing about Edgar the Dragon-A Christmas Tale. 
A huge congratulations to Georgie, who was rewarded for  an ‘Act of Kindness’. We are very proud of you. 👏 

Week 3

“One kind word” Anti- Bullying Week. 
This week we have celebrated Anti-Bullying Week, revisiting the different types of bullying and strategies overcome and prevent bullying behaviour. We watched a video about online bullying, played an online safety game in Purple Mash and made our own e-safety quizzes. 
We practised our bow-sawing skills in Bushcraft, working collaboratively with tools. 
The River Trust came and taught us about the water cycle, river systems and about the things the River Trust do to help prevent rivers from flooding. We loved testing out the river system models in the classroom and we made an enormous puddle on our classroom floor! 
To raise money for Children in Need, we had a fancy dress/ non- uniform day.

Week 2

‘Lest we forget.’

To mark Remembrance Day, we performed the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae. Please watch the video below. 
We also painted pictures of our interpretation of Flanders Fields and in our assembly we learned about the ways in which different countries mark Remembrance Day. 
The River Trust visited us and we learned about the River Tyne, it’s catchment and wildlife and we also looked at ways to prevent urban flooding. We even got to pour water onto model houses to see which were best at absorbing rain water. Lots of weeding and tidying was done in the allotments too!

Week 1

What a lovely first week back. The children hunted for Geography facts about extreme weather and climate to answer questions about our new topic ‘Extreme Earth’. The children investigated all of the different ways the letter string ‘ough’ sounds in words. Our school allotment is now bind week free thanks to the hard work of our class digging it all out of the raised bed. There were even some delicious strawberries still growing in the edible garden for us to enjoy.
