Global Outdoor Classroom Day was such a success that staff have decided to use the outdoors for lessons more often. During the day we had outdoor maths, den building, science, bug hotel building, planting, cloud identification, poetry, art and much more. It was a wonderful learning day as we are especially lucky to have so many different environments on our doorstep. I'm sure the children slept well that night...and so did the staff!
The WE Wonder Walk...it was too much to expect two consecutive fine days and, as we opened our curtains on Friday morning, we were dismayed to see the pouring rain. However, all is not lost as we have rearranged the Wonder Walk to Friday 9th June.
Derwent Hill-this week many of our Year 6 class are spending Monday to Friday experiencing adventurous activities in the Sunderland's Derwent Hill Residential Centre. Whether canoeing, hill walking or climbing, the days are full of energetic tasks and team problems to solve. Have a wonderful week everyone.
Relax Kids-we were so impressed with how Relax Kids work and the passion of Relax Kids leader Hayley Ramm that we have asked her to work in our school. Year 4 will be taking a 6 week course, beginning on Wednesday 7th June, that will teach them strategies to deal with life's ups and downs. We are also inviting a few Year 3 to join the Yr 4 as ambassadors. They will assess the course to decide whether or not another year group should have the same opportunity.
The Different Faces of Britain-the whole school will be taking part in this one day multi cultural topic on Monday 5th June.
