Year 3 have been making collage shapes during art week. They have really enjoyed creating different shapes and making their own collages.
Some of our Year 3 children spent time with Father Smith today, planting new flowers and seeds around the ‘Daft As A Brush’ headquarters in Gosforth.
The founder of the charity, Brian Burnie, spent time with the children explaining what the volunteers of Daft As A Brush do and looked at the amazing work our hospitals carry out to support those undergoing cancer treatment. The children also explored the different types of seeds planted, how many and the reason behind the plants.
The charity, Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care, provides a free transport service to and from the Freeman/RVI Hospitals for outpatients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment – some from as far afield as the Scottish Borders, North Yorkshire and West Cumbria.
Together we ran a total of 2820 laps, which is the equivalent to 218 miles!
Thank you for all of the sponsors we received.
We all had a great day running our Race for Life together!
Year 3 have been creating their own pop up books. We created different mechanisms to make our books move. After reading it in class, we based our books on Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to Ken Smith, a parent of a Year 4 pupil, for giving up his time and resources to repair school storage boxes on the playground this morning.
The area outside our school is busy in the morning and at the end of the school day. Some drivers park irresponsibly, potentially placing children in danger. We have been working with the Local Authority who have helped create a ‘5-minute protective Walking Bubble’ around our school so that everyone can travel safely and actively to school. Our walking bubble map can be view below.
We are asking those who are able to walk, cycle or scooter to school as much as possible. Also, for those who must drive, to use their car as little as possible for school journeys and when they do drive park at least 5 minutes from the school gates and walk the rest of the way.
Can we remind parents to please park considerately to the local residents.
