On Friday Oliver and Lola, our Year Six school councilors, visited Hebburn Helps to deliver our reverse advent calendar donations. Lola said, “I wanted to give something back so that children who aren’t as lucky as me have a great Christmas with treats. Oliver added “I couldn’t believe how many sweets we got, everyone was great and got on board supporting it!”
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 the children from the Junior School went to see Snow White panto in Newcastle. Katy, Grace, Lily and Chloe were all performing. We had a brilliant time!
On Thursday Mrs Dow took the Enterprise group to the Christmas Market at the Grainger Market. They have been working hard on a Tuesday night to make many christmas treats and decorations. Please keep an eye out for their next venture.
Last year, when in Year 4, the children wrote letters to children in China. Today, the children received their replies! We had great fun reading all about what the children enjoy doing in their spare time and how school is different in China.
On Friday we sent off our filled shoeboxes to children less fortunate than ourselves so that they would receive a nice present on Christmas day.
On Saturday night some of our children completed the 5K Moon Run at Gibside. They doned their lights and glow paint and headed out in the dark around the park. The Moon Run was organised through Grassroots. They all had a fab time even if it was a little chilly!
On Saturday some of our Year 2 choir entertained the parishoners at the SVP Parish Christmas Party. They all sang beautifully!
In reception we have been looking at why we wear poppies. First we watched a clip from CBeebies. Next we Painted and made our own poppies using abstract art. We found red, black and green items from around class to make our poppies. We all had a great afternoon being very creative.
