Crime scene!

Last week we had a mysterious visitor in our classroom. They came in during the night and ate some porridge and broke some chairs! Can you guess who it was?

We looked at the clues they left behind and jotted down lots of questions into our ‘police’ notebooks.

Art work based on Matisse’s collages

We have been looking at Henri Matisse’s paper cut outs and have created some of our own.


EYFS nursery rhymes

Just before the half term, EYFS were learning about a lot of different nursery rhymes. The children’s favourite seemed to be, ‘Miss Polly had a dolly’. The children loved getting all the doctors and nurses outfits out and enjoyed bandaging each other up! They especially enjoyed making Miss Downie all better.





Pancake Day

We celebrated Pancake Day before we broke up for half term. The children had got to make their own pancakes and then had a turn at flipping them. Once the children had made their pancakes they had got to choose their own topping that they would like on their pancake and then enjoyed eating it up!








Making vegetable soup

This half term, EYFS have been learning all about Nursery Rhymes. We made some broth to go with the nursery rhyme ‘There was an old women who lived in a shoe’. We made our own spiders out of sault dough to go with the nursery rhyme ‘Incy Wincy Spider’. We have also made clocks to go with the nursery rhyme ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’.







Early Years Christmas Sing-a-Long

This afternoon, the children in the Early Years Foundation Stage Unit performed their Christmas Sing-a-Long for their mummies and daddies – what a wonderful performance it was!  The children had learnt Christmas songs and Carols, including ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ (all the verses) and many, many more; well done to all the children and staff, you are all stars!

Year 4 SAGE Performance

Last week the Year 4 children sang alongside other local schools from within the Morpeth Partnership to a packed crowd at the Sage in Gateshead. Although it was a long day, Miss Enzor and Mrs Stokoe were very proud of the children’s performance and fun was had by all.
