As part of our World Book Day Celebrations Year 1 and Year 5 enjoyed being reading buddys!.
Wow, what a fantastic morning we had at French Cafe!
Thank you so much to all the parents, carers and chikldren who attended throughout the morning.
It was amazing to have everyone together and hear so many children and adults ordering their food in French!
Someone on whom you can depend.
Instead, they will be there to lend an ear.
So you can be happy for a while.
They will be there to share the laughter.
For they pick you up when you fall.
Give friendship back; it is pure gold.
Over the last two days, every child from Reception to Year 6 has taken part in a STEM project.in collaboration with the KAPLA workshop team. They have learned how to work as a team and shown resilience and engagement with the process in order to complete their final build.
We have built ski villages, giraffes, houses, crocodiles, boats and so much more! The wooden bricks needed to be carefully placed to make different shapes that would stand tall. There was no glue, no fixing mechanisms, just pure determination and a methodical, systematic approach.
We are so proud of what we managed to achieve together! A massive thank you to all of those parents and adults that helped our children enjoy an amazing learning experience.
The school council decided that they would like to buy some resources for our chilckens and ducks.
In assembley they launched the idea of a bake sale to the whole school. Each member of the student council explained why they loved our animals so much and how important they were to everyone in school.
The children made 300 cakes and dedicated some of their lunch break to sell them to the rest of the school.
Everyone loved their cake and Wow!!! we raised £75.93. The next decision is what to buy!!
Representing Hedworthfield Primary some of our school councillors, attended the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Monkton Cenotaph.
Members of the student council presented a wreath, on behalf of the school and displayed some art work, that the chilkdren had produced to show their respect.
The children have taken part in class elections. They wrote a manifesto and presented their ideas to their classmates. We discussed the UK voting system and British values before attending our very own Polling Station to vote.
The successful candidates were announced by our special guests Cllr G Kilgour and Cllr J Potts.
Well done everyone!
Today our student council planted an apple tree in our Forest School. So we can always remember The Queen’s Platium Jubilee we also placed a commerative plaque next to the tree.
Year 5 have made an excellent start to the term across all curriculum subjects, including their new topic ‘Earth and Space’. We have dived into our new class text: ‘A Firework Maker’s Daughter’ by Philip Pullman, focusing on fluency when reading aloud and learning about the context of Indonesia and the experiences of rice farmers and sulphur miners.
Today our School Councillors acted as Ambassors of our school when they visited Calf Close Home to present some gifts and well wishes to the residents.
