Our school is taking part in the ‘walk-a-marathon-in-a-month’ activity. This is a whole school activity where staff and children either jog, run or walk at their own pace for 15 minutes at the beginning of each day. This initiative helps improve physical and mental health and wellbeing and helps to raise attainment. 

Elm Class enjoyed a lovely trip to The Grace Darling Museum. They took part in a workshop and made puppets to tell the story of Grace Darling.  They also visited the Church and the play park.

Ash Class were lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic day at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. They time travelled, witnessed a volcanic eruption, flew over a glacier, enjoyed the view from a submarine, took a 4D venture through Earth’s biomes and visited the Rainforest – as well as enjoying a ‘supervolcanoes’ film in the showdome.  Everyone had a busy day full of learning and full of fun!

Oak Class have produced some lovely self-portraits ......  can you guess who they are? 

Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust Infection Prevention and Control Nurses visited children in Elm and Oak Classes to education them about good hand hygiene and cough etiquette.  

Oak Class enjoyed making potions as part of a reading comprehension activity and a maths activity.  The class were reading George's Marvellous Medicine and had to make their own marvellous medicine by using their reading skills to follow set instructions, look at labelled ingredients and add the correct amount to their potion in the correct order.  They also had to measure capacity, compare amounts and problem solve. 

The whole school has enjoyed taking part in our Forest School activities learning to identify trees, making tree ID books, looking for and identifying mini-beasts then creating models of them using natural materials, building shelters, making ropes and tying knots........... here are just a few photos

The whole school visited St. Peter's Church in Scremerston  to join in a special celebration to honour the 100th Anniversary of the ending of the First World War.  There was a special blessing of the display of a cascade of poppies flowing down from the Church porch onto the graveyard.  Some of the children dressed up in WW1 clothing and they all entertained the congregation with the song 'Hey, Mr Miller'. 

Sunday 11th November  A wreath was laid at the War Memorial on behalf of the school.
