The gallery is full of a wealth of photographs to give a real insight into the rich and varied experiences the children have in our school. Have a look at some of the wonderful things we do at our school by selecting the links from the menu.
World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day the children came to school dressed as a character from a book they enjoy to read.
We have had a lovely morning sharing books and reading activities with parents and carers this morning at our reading morning before World Book Day 📚.
Thank you to everyone who attended, we hope you all had a lovely time! 🙂
Rights Respecting Event
We had lots of fun taking part in Hesleden’s Rights Respecting event. We worked together to complete a range activities linked to our rights. We designed our own name on a graffiti wall, tried to guess the smell of different types of nutritious food and we went outside to build a shelter using sticks and string.
Year 6 Boccia
A group of children from Year 6 took part in a Boccia tournament at Wellfield Community School and came 3rd.
Very well done to our Year 5’s and 6’s who took part in First Lego League’s competition. They have worked very hard for 6 weeks leading up to the competition building their own robots and programming them to complete challenges.
Reception Visit to Washington Wetland Centre
Reception went to Washington Wetland Centre for a school visit. We are currently learning about birds and how to look after them in the winter months. We saw cranes, different types of geese, two black swans and a family of otters.
Artsmark Discover Award
As part of the Artsmark Discover Award a group of children from Year 2 and Year 4 visited Locomotion in Shildon which is a Railway Museum. We took part in a number of workshops focussing on Sea, Sand and Steam Trains. The children learned how the seaside resorts have changed over the years including the reasons why people visited, what they wore to swim in the sea and the role of the railways in transporting them to seaside resorts. Two of the children from each year group tried on bathing costumes from Victorian Times and were very surprised how much different they were to what they wear now. The children enjoyed building and decorating their own Victorian ferris wheels and looking around the museum at the different types of trains including the Royal train. The children from Year 2 also enjoyed taking part in a picture trail around the museum.
Four pupils took part in the Primary Maths Challenge at Wellfield Community School. We are so proud and delighted to tell you that they came 1st in the poster round and 3rd overall.
