Blue class (Year 3 and 4) 2018

On Monday 1st April, Blue Class, went on a curriculum visit to Stowell Street in China Town. The trip signified the culmination of their topic on The Shang Dynasty and Ancient China and was planned to allow the children to experience aspects of modern Chinese culture and lifestyle. On the trip the children enjoyed finding Chinese features on Stowell Street, exploring Wing Hong supermarket for Chinese foods and cooking equipment and drawing the arch at Stowell Street's entrance. The highlight of the day was having a delicious buffet at Lau's 202 restaurant. The behviour of the children was fabulous as usual and was commented on throughout the day by a number of members of the public. Well done Blue Class. What a great day.
From Friday 22nd March to Friday 29th March, Year 4 enjoyed a fantastic week of cycling with Richard Rothwell from Cycling Generation. The children progressed really well over the week. Richard was really impressed with the children's cycling skills and even more impressed with their listening skills . this meant they made huge amounts of progress over the week. Well done Year 4 - I am super proud of you all. Thank you Richard for a really great week.
Yet again, the children in Blue Class have wowed me with their creativity! Their submissions for the Shang Dynasty topic homework are out of this world. We hope you enjoy looking at them. Fantastic effort everyone.
Cramlington and Seaton Valley school games gymnastics competition
 
In February, six children from blue class took part in the Cramlington and Seaton Valley gymnastics competition at Northburn Gym.  We were also joined by Jacob Dowson, Mr and Mrs Dowson's son.
 
The children had to perform two routines which Mr Dowson taught them in PE lessons.  They all did a brilliant job.  
 
This was the first time we entered the competition and we all really enjoyed it.  The team came 5th out of 9 schools taking part- AMAZING.
 
In addition to this, our team was awarded the school games values award for demonstrating the school games values- team work, self-belief, passion, determination, honesty and respect. Well done to our team- Daniel, Jacob, Jessica, John, Kaydan, Olivia and Poppy, 
In October, the children in Key Stage 2 enjoyed their science week all about healthy eating and the 'Eat-well' plate
Key Stage 2 completed their first ever open ended topic homework this term. They worked over three weeks - the week before half term, during half term and the week after. Children were set an open ended task to make, draw or write about an aspect of the Stone Age that they were particularly interested in. Here are their magnificent contributions to our very informative museum.
Back in September, the Year 4 children from Blue class enjoyed a brilliant trip to Dukeshouse Wood. They worked together, challenged themselves and developed their independence over the two days.
