Owls have been making felt mice with the help of Mrs McFetrich. We have learned blanket stitch, which was used to join the different pieces of felt. Here are a few examples.
Pupils in OWLS class spent a day learning about the life of St Cuthbert. . Everyone had a super time and came home with lots of smiles on their faces.
On Saturday our Year 2 and 3 children participated in a football competition at Cambo. They played very well and managed to get into the final against Cambo. Stannington were fantastic and played some good football but narrowly missed out on taking first place. Well done!
On Friday the Swifts went to the beach to take part in a sand castle building competition. This year’s theme for the competition was the Lindisfarne Gospels. There were lots of other schools taking part and many wonderful sand sculptures to view. We had a great day!
We had lots of fun learning about recycling, what goes into the recycling bins and what doesn’t! We also got the opportunity to reuse plastic bags and weaved them together on the fences to make fantastic pictures. In the garden we planted vegetables and herbs. We also had the chance to create artwork using litter and make signs asking people to turn off lights and taps! A few children made eco pledges on wooden discs, they pledged to turn off lights, turn off taps and recycle materials etc… The children who are learning guitar learned a recycling song and Mrs Davis turned used milk cartons into wonderful pencil pots.

‘I got to learn about composting and that we should recycle things to make them new.’ (Max KS1)
Thank you to all the parents who kindley donated all of their plastic bags.
The children have now waved a sad ‘Goodbye’ to the I-Pads, they were a fantastic resource for them to use, every year group used them at some point during the trial. Our school fair on Saturday 8th June is raising money to buy us some I-Pads of our own, so please come along and help us to buy some I-Pads!
We are all very excited about Eco-Day! Lots of exciting activities are going to take place following on from the assembly led by Lorna our ‘Eco Expert’…… Watch this space for photos and feedback.
