Stay and Play – Kite Creating!

Year Two had an exciting morning today when their parents stayed at school to help them with their morning challenge. 

The children and parents were challenged to create a kite that would be strong, fly in the wind and look eye-catching.  The challenge was accepted and the hall was transformed into a kite making workshop!  Many different designs and shapes of kites were made, as well as an array of many different colours and materials.  Once the parents had left the children took their kites out to test and analysis.

Take a look at our pictures below:

If only you could smell the cakes as they were baking! The delicious smell brought people from all over school!

What To Do If You Are Being Bullied.

Bullying is not:

When someone doesn’t want to play with you or wants to play a different game.  It also isn’t if you fall out with your friend.

Bullying is:

Bullying is when a group of people or an indivdual pick on someone repeatedly- Several Times On Purpose.

There are may types of bullying -

Unwanted physical contact, words, rumours, threatening, annoying, racist and emotional.

If you are being bullied you should:

1) Talk to an adult you trust.  Telling someone will help make it better.

2) Don’t bully back.  Get help.

3) If it doesn’t stop, tell another adult you trust.

4) Try to stay with a group of friends or people you know.  This will help.

Whether you are being bullied, have seen someone being bullied, or have bullied someone else- do not be afraid to tell someone.

It’s better to tell someone than let it carry on.

Year 4 visit Murton Park

Year 4 visited Murton Park on Thursday 22nd January. It was a very cold day but we had all wrapped up warmly! We dressed up as Roman soldiers, it was quite difficult to keep our helmets on and carry a spear and shield at the same time! We signed up to the army for 25 years and then made clay oil lamps as well as practising our weapons training. Later in the day a Celt attacked our fort but we saw him off! At the end of our visit we tried the Testeudo formation and then marched off home, left, right, or, as the Romans would have said:SIn, Dex, Sin, Dex!P1000032The main gate.

Murton Park

Year 3 have survived the coldest day ever at Murton Park!

As you can see from the photos, it was a very busy day. As well as making clay lamps, learning how to write in Latin, and battle practice we even had to scare off a Celt!

Although it was FREEZING, everyone had a great time, learned lots and made it back from the fort safely. As usual, all the children were wonderfully well behaved and we were very proud of them.
