Children were selected from Year 3 and Year 4 to represent St Mary’s in a Basketball Competition at North Durham Academy once again our children played fantastically.
Well Done !
Year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London in class.
They had a very special interactive lesson yesterday when the prayer room was transformed into a scene from the Great Fire of London. The children were transported back in time with lights, smell and scenery allowing them to immerse themselves in their diary entry about the Great Fire, just the way Samuel Pepys had written in his diary all those years ago.
Take a look at our Great Fire of London:
In 1666, a huge fire that started in a tiny bakery burned down most of London. The fire was so big that it was called the Great Fire of London.
We know what happened during the fire because people back then wrote about it in letters and newspapers – Samuel Pepys wrote about it in his diary.
We have had a busy World Book day in school today with activities including art, writing, reading and drama.
There was a special whole school assembly his morning where we received a visit from local author Neil Sullivan, who read his new book to the children (this was particularly special as both of Neil’s granddaughters are pupils in our school)
To top our special assembly off Miss Hughes had organised a special play based on Neil’s previous book “The Little House that didn’t have a Home” – all the teachers and teaching assistants have worked hard to re-create this special story for the children.
We have had a wonderful day in school today where the children were invited to come to school dressed as a word or a character. The costumes were fantastic and very creative.
School opened early at 8.30am so that parents/grandparents could come into school and share a moment reading before school.
