On Tuesday 20th February, Class 3 went on a visit to Durham Cathedral. The sun was shining for their morning of geography fieldwork skills on the riverbanks. The children were given compasses and a map. We walked along the riverbanks, with our guide pointing out key ‘landmarks’ that the children would then include on their map when we were back in the education building. They learnt about bridges, the corn and fulling mills and the counts house.
After enjoying their lunch, the children then entered the cathedral for an afternoon learning about the life of St Cuthbert. They enjoying dressing up as the different people in the story and hearing the story told in different areas of the cathedral, including a visit to St Cuthbert’s shrine.
The children were fantastically behaved and made the staff very proud to have them on this visit representing our school. Thank you to the lovely staff at the cathedral who made the children’s day very enjoyable.
Class 4 Reception pupils all took part in an Arctic Animals Assembly linked to their topic during Family assembly. The children worked very hard to write and perform their own version of the story Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? They were able to use their previous learning to create some wonderful arctic characters and a range of verbs within. They ended their performance singing beautifully the song, ‘Three Little Penguins.’
Class 3 children then performed their dance routine to Bruno Mars, Uptown Funk. This is a routine that they created themselves and worked very well individually, in pairs and in small groups. They can’t wait to take part in the dance festival next week with our cluster primary schools!
