Both Reception classes had our first visit to the library at Hebburn Hub today. Before we left school we talked about keeping safe in the snow and then we set off on our walk to the hub, making sure to wait for the green man and look left and right before we crossed each busy road. When we got to the library the very helpful librarian, Sharon, read us a lovely Christmas story about a beautiful Christmas tree and we all made a beautiful bauble to hang on our own Christmas trees.
The library staff and members of public commented on our BEAUTIFUL manners and EXCELLENT behaviour. Our teachers were VERY proud of us! We even sang some Christmas songs for Sharon and then chose some books to take back to class to read at story time.
On our way back to school, we had a very important job to do! We needed to post our letters to Santa! We made a big line and passed the letters along. Our class elves, Pipkin and Jingles had the special job of posting the big envelope into the post box.
We all had a GREAT day!
Today our Year 3 choir visited Hebburn Court care home to spread a little Christmas cheer. They entertained the residents with a few Christmas carols and other songs, and sounded beautiful. Well done!
Today our school council handed over our school donations to Angie from Hebburn Helps.
Many thanks to all the children, staff and parents who donated – it really means a lot to a lot of people!
On Friday Mr Conway received this letter praising our children. Well done to the children on the number 27 bus!
Miss Doughty’s class have had a very exciting time in the secret garden this morning. One of our Nana’s kindly asked if we wanted lots of tree stumps when her trees were cut down. We were very pleased when they arrived, there were so many of them. Today we worked together as a team to transport some into the secret garden. We looked very carefully at the rings and counted them to see how old the trees were. We loved working together.
Mrs Guy’s class made autumn wreaths. First of all they went out in to the Secret Garden with Mrs Cockburn and Mrs Wells to collect the autumn leaves that they would need and then they worked with a partner to make their beautiful wreaths. They looked brilliant!
What a fun afternoon was had by Year One when we visited the ICT suite and we were able to log on and become more familiar with a key board. We were introduced to words like mouse, return and screen. We were able to use the program 2Simple and showed increasing accuracy in using the mouse and tools within the program.
Well done to Leo and George from Mrs Guys class who have successfully reached 50 reading records.
Enjoy your new mugs whilst reading a good book boys!
Over the past 2 weeks the year 3 children have been on class trips to the Openzone. While there they designed their own Christmas decorations, which were cut out of plastic with the laser cutter. They made christmas animations and augmented reality using the Ipads. We even had lunch in Santa’s workshop.
