Busy, busy, busy!

Forest Schools

We started the term in January with a whole school Forest Schools week. Everyone enjoyed Forest Schools activities on the school field and we all created some fantastic creatures! During the rest of the week, we used our creatures to stimulate lots of fantastic writing, which is proudly displayed along the corridor.

The Jungle Book

Once again, we were lucky enough to enjoy an afternoon performance from image Theatre this year. It is always fantastic to see the children dress up as characters, learn some lines and join in with the acting and singing. The performance helped us to celebrate National Storytelling Week.

Mini Police Visit to Newcastle Central Mosque.

Our Mini Police really enjoyed an interesting and informative visit to the Mosque. They found out all about the Five Pillars of Islam and how Muslim people use them to guide how they live their lives. The children had the opportunity to look at pictures of Mosques around the world and The Quran in many different languages. Listening to a man singing the call to prayer was amazing! The people at the mosque kindly gave the Mini Police drinks and a biscuit, as well as a bag of interesting things to take back to school.

Reception Class and their Chinese Dragon

Reception children have been learning all about Chinese New Year. As part of this, they made a wonderful Chinese dragon and amazed the school and some of their parents with a fantastic dance.

Safer Internet Day

On 7th February, the whole school did activities in classes to help the children to think about how to stay safe online. Key Stage 2 children enjoyed an assembly led by the police which helped them to explore this important topic.

Throughout the day, hints and tips about staying safe online were texted to parents. Here are some of the topics that were covered:

  • Gaining children's permission to post their pictures on social media.
  • Ensuring children with smart phones can't be found by strangers by turning off location settings if they are linked to social media.
  • Cyber bullying and all of the platforms that can be used for this, including Musical.y, X-Box Live, Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook.
  • Parents to take an interest in their children's digital lives.

Finally, we had a cautionary tale about hacking servers in Minecraft and illegal activity on the internet.
