Well done to Bradley our Star of the week again!!!!!
This week the year 6’s got their Leavers hoodies presented to them (which by the way are green) and look amazing. Father Dennis gave them out at the end of the 1st communion mass.
On Tuesday all of Class 4 went to Mass practice, after the Year 6’s finished their stories and self-marked their literacy whilst the Year 5’s did some more literacy.
On Wednesday afternoon the Year 6’s started their five weeks of forest school at Auckland Castle. Our task was to create a forest man out of string and then build a shelter for it to live in. We worked in groups of two. We all loved it, it was very exciting and enjoyable.
On Thursday afternoon Mr. Brown let us watch the England match.
On Friday we made Father’s day cards.
Congratulations to Bradley who is our Star of the Week with his fantastic attitude to his learning, even staying in at break time today to complete his writing. Well done!
On Thursday we were hosting a three schools choir practice and so we had some visitors from Cleves Cross Primary, Timothy Hackworth Primary as well as Durham Cathedral including: Mr Lee, the assistant choir master, and some boy choristers. We started at twenty to ten and at ten past ten we had a break which included juice and yummy biscuits! We carried on until twenty to twelve. we sand lots of different songs from Bring Him Home to Those Magnificent Men.
In the afternoon we hd a debate about school uniform policies. Bradley was Chairperson and he decide that, although the against side came up with good comments, the for side was the winner!
At two o’clock we did Relax Kids which is a programme to help kids to release stress! The first thing we did was stretching our muscles. After that we played pirate ships then we did some massage. At the end we did some relaxation (which involved closing our eyes and imagining we were lighthouses). It has been such a busy week but also a fun one! The week after the holiday, thirteen children are going to France and we wish that they have a great time.
Congratulations to Scarlett who is our Star of the Week for her excellent dancing skills. Well done, Scarlett!
On Wednesday 18th May 2016, Class 4 took part in a liturgical dance workshop. The workshop was delivered by 2 ladies from More Than Dance (Emily and Danielle) and Deacon Kevin. The dancing was to celebrate the Christian faith. During the morning session we had two dances to learn but they were a little difficult to remember! We also had some activities to do. We filled a suitcase with memories and friendships we wanted to take to St. John’s and outside the suitcase we wrote the memories and friendships we wanted to leave at St. Chad’s. We continued with the dancing in the afternoon. We also wrote prayers for the things we would miss when we were at St. John’s-for example, teachers or buddies and learned the Hail Mary in sign language. All in all, Class 4 had a fabulous day.
On the 20th May, year 6 went to planet leisure to roller-skate, have a meal, play in the arcade and play laser quest. Most of us enjoyed laser quest. We had hats and helmets and a gun. We went into a dark room with lights and if you died you could re-charge. We ended up on a big team targeting on 1 person. We got very hot by the end. For the roller-skating we had lots of fun, we took a big year 6 photo and bought some drinks. In the arcade we all had lots of fun and Eric was lucky to win a minion, which he named Barry, on the claw. From year 6 we would give it 10/10.
Star of the week goes to all of the year 6 children who have worked fabulously hard towards their SATs tests this week. Well done!
Our star this week is Ellis.
Our star this week is Johnny who has continued to work extremely hard in preparation for the SATs test, in maths in particular. Well done Johnny.
