Phonics Screening

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported their child with their phonics. All of the children have worked very hard and achieved so much. We are very proud.

We are not able to tell you your child’s overall score at this time but a letter will be sent in the coming weeks.

Well done to our Year 1 superheroes!

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.
