We were excited to come to school in our Europe Day T-shirts. Each year group came to assembly wearing their T-shirts inspired by the country they had chosen to learn about,  including Belgium, France and Scotland.

Year 1 learnt lots of facts about Switzerland, looked at maps about its position in Europe, made Swiss flags, tried Swiss foods, completed word searches, and mixed some paint tints to paint like the artist Paul Klee.

‘Observing’ Shabbat in Year 1.

Our RE topic on Jewish faith has taught us a lot about belief and traditions.

Our Jewish visitor from Newcastle Synagogue brought it to life for us.

We listened to a story about Abraham, found out about writing and speaking Hebrew, and observed Alan demonstrating what happens during a traditional Shabbat Friday night dinner.

In preparation for his visit, we had decorated our own Kiddish cup, and recreated eating challah bread and blackcurrant juice. We listened to traditional Jewish music.

No Smoking Day 2018

The children asked and answered lots of questions during our whole school No Smoking Day  assembly. Their posters and wishes show that they feel well informed from the activities they joined in with that day.

Year 1 Anti-Bullying Yoga Session

As part of Anti-Bullying Week, Kalma Juniors visited some of our Year 1 pupils after school to take part in a yoga session. The children experienced sequences of yoga postures, breathing and mindfulness for them to use in everyday life situations.

Well done everyone! We were proud to receive recognition for all the great work our children and staff do towards anti-bullying, and the contributions they make in helping to create a safe school environment.
