Fun at Stannington!

This week has been the best! We have been doing all sorts of fun things.

Firstly, on Monday, we painted pictures of our mums. Zumba was great and fun!

On Tuesday a special visitor came to our school…It was a baby lamb. The lamb didn’t have a name.

Wednesday was our favourite day because it was gymnastics. We got to do flips on the pole bar and it was fun! Bobby was really scared but he still had a go!

This Thursday we played tennis with Sam. We had lots of mini games. My team lost but we still enjoyed the games. We also created Mother’s Day acrostic poems to read out in church on Friday.

By James and Bobby!

Scooter training KS1

This month the children had the opportunity to practice their scooter handling skills. They learned how to stay safe and they all had a great time zooming in and out of cones!

Sand Castle Challenge

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!

Great fire of London work

KS1 have been looking at the Great fire of London. We painted fantastic landscape pictures of London on fire and drew Tudor houses.

We made Tudor houses and then placed them next to each other to make streets. We then set the houses on fire and recreated the fire of London. The fire spread very quickly!
