A huge Well Done to all the boys and girls in the nativity today, you were truly fantastic and retold the story of the birth of Jesus very well. We are very proud of you!
For the past three days we have taken to the great outdoors.
On Monday, we explored the environment that we were in and made lists of items that were natural and man made.
On Tuesday, we were given the extra special task from the Jarrow Superhero Society to build some dens so that they could have a meeting. Fantastic team work, problem solving, language and opportunities for independent writing. We even learnt how to tie knots properly.
Today, we read the story of Stick Man by Julia Donaldson and made our very own Stick men.
Today we have been so lucky have Sergeant Lewis and PC Elstob visit our class to talk about their role and the responsibilities that they have as real life superheroes in our community. The children had the opportunity to try on the officers uniforms and be mini police themselves. The children had loads of questions to ask them about their jobs. We learnt that police aren’t just there to capture the bad guys, they are there to protect us and keep us safe.
Reception loved having their grown ups in school today for a shared reading afternoon. We loved showing how much we have improved with our reading skills. Mr sunshine even popped in to say hello. We can’t wait for another reading afternoon.
Just found this beautiful video made by the wonderful Miss O Reilly from reading week. It is so wonderful to hear their favourite parts from reading week.
Last week Northumbria water came to visit KS1 to tell us all about how to keep our drains clean. They gave a pantomime all about Dwayne the drain and told us what we should and should not put down our drain. We sang songs and had lots of fun, thank you to Northumbria water.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Mother’s Day lunch. We hope each and every one of you get spoilt rotten on Sunday. Lay back and enjoy!
It’s the end of reading week and what fun it has been. From borrowing books from the library, to no pen day, to singing in front of the school, to making our own counting books, playing hide and seek with the Gruffalo and finally getting up as our favourite characters. What a week it has been! The love for reading is well and truly on the up. Thank you to Mrs Tumelty from all in reception for such a fun week.
Reception class went to Boldon Lodge as a part of reading week to hear the story of the Gruffalo. The children loved walking through the forest searching for acorns. They then has to find the pages of the story and sequence them in order. We shared the story as we sat around the camp and set out to make our own Gruffalo masks using natural materials from the forest. We loved making Gruffalo crumble and hiding in the dens from the Gruffalo. Reading week has brought such excitement. Thanks to Trent’s mam and Abbie and Chloe’s mam for joining us.
As you all may have heard, Reception has a new student join their class this week. George crash landed into our classroom on Wednesday night and was keen to join our class the minute he landed. George needs some extra help with his writing and everyone in the class has been keen to help him out. We cannot wait to learn more with George. Don’t forget to say hi to him if you see him around school.
