Not only have we had a fantastic chinese new year menu today, but Class 1 have also a had a brilliant day learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year (which takes place on 16th February). They have enjoyed making Chinese dragons and performing a dragon dance, making Chinese lanterns and sampling some Chinese cuisine.
Some of our year 1 and 2 pupils attended the KS1 athletics festival at St.Thomas More on Wednesday 7th February. All of the children really enjoyed taking part alongside our cluster primary schools and loved the dinosaur theme of the events, we certainly have some budding athletes to watch out for in the future. Thank you to all of our parents and grandparents who came along to support the children and a big well done to those who took part, we are very proud of you! (A special mention goes to one of our fantastic sports leader, Matthew who was on hand to offer advice on techniques and supported all of our younger children fantastically).
Class 1 were very lucky to have mr Tobin visit their class today. He came to talk to about the toys that he played with when he was a little boy. The children had prepared questions to ask Mr Tobsin such as “What was your favourite toy?”, “What material was it made from?”. He was very kind and brought in some of his old toy s and let us have a go of them. His favourite toy was his green bike and his toy scotty dog, whom he named ‘Scotty’. Have a look at the some of his toys below, the children had such fun learning and trying them out!
On Tuesday 20th June 2017, we had a fantastic day studying this painting by Norman Cornish, a pitmen painter.
We worked very hard to create our own versions of the picture.
We really enjoyed re-enacting being people from the picture and miners taking a break!
