Year 4 had an assessment based on their rolling, balancing and moving performances. They had to remember their routine, pointed toes and holding balances for 5 seconds. Everyone did really well showing the progress they have made in terms of developing their movement skills.
This week Nursery have been getting ready for Christmas. The children have been developing their fine motor skills by making their own wrapping paper and wrapping presents to put under the tree in Santa’s Grotto. The children enjoyed making their own stockings and hanging them up. They have really enjoyed helping Santa and his elves.
Our Santa Fun Run is now a well established tradition of our school year.
Year 4 enjoyed learning some rolls, balances and shapes during their gymnastics lesson this afternoon. They are working with specialist teachers from the Peterlee Sports Partnership..
Class 3/4MF have been developing their gymnastic skills in PE. We played 'mirror, mirror' to practise balancing on one leg in different positions. In pairs, we created sequences of movements and balance, before performing them to the class. Great balancing!
Mrs Tucker and our Reception children have been working hard turning over the mud in the mud kitchen ready to serve up some muddy treats and developing their core muscles and co-ordination.
Nursery have been practicing their fine motor skills by seeing how many conkers they can pick up and put into their cup! We became very good at using our tweezers with control to collect the conkers. Mrs Venner was naughty and made it even tricker by adding masking tape in a web so it was harder to get them!
The children have enjoyed workshops with 'Destination Judo' over the past couple of days. They learnt many new skills like how to throw an opponent safely! Leaflets have been sent home detailing how they can become further involved
July 2019: We have spent the morning celebrating the children's wonderful achievements in assembly. Mrs Evans awarded her Swimming Champion and Most Improved awards for each year group. Well done to the winners!
Thank you to everyone who came to the fayre today, we had a lovely time seeing you all! A huge well done to the children who competed in the finals of our football tournament, it was lovely watching you play. Congratulations to the winning teams, we hope you enjoy showing off your fantastic medals!
Many of our Year 5 children enjoyed the beautiful weather today while they participated in a cricket festival at Seaham Park Cricket Ground. The children behaved impeccably and played some fantastic cricket, with our C Team winning their league!
