Y3C are getting into the holiday spirit!
Y3C have some new French pen pals. They wrote letters and made Easter cards for pupils in Noisy-Le-Sec. We should be receiving their May celebration cards soon.
Year 3 have had a fantastic time during Arts Week. We have taken part in dramatic productions, produced works of fine art, and enjoyed vocal and body percussion workshops.
Milk for the Autumn Term is now available for payment. The cost for milk is
£9.10 per child. Milk is an important source of calcium in a child’s diet as it
aids in the development of healthy bones and teeth. All payments must be
made by WEDNESDAY 11 SEPTEMBER.
Those children in receipt of free school meals (income based) do not pay for
milk, however from September if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2
and you would normally have paid for school meals, payment for milk is still
Year 3 have been helping with the upkeep of our new allotment by watering and feeding the vegetables and herbs. Our tomato plants from Beamish Hall are doing well, and the courgettes are beginning to flower. Did you know that in Italy, deep fried courgette flowers are a popular appetiser?
An exciting parcel arrived from our French penpals in Noisy-le-sec this week. It contained timetables and beautifully written letters about what pupils will be doing during their Summer holidays. We noticed that they have already started their holidays (on 4 juillet – 4th July), and that their school day begins at 8.30. Children eat their evening meal at 7pm. We hope they received the timetables and letters we sent them.
Thank you to all of our parents/guardians for the contributions during our Elmer Project Day. We raised over £400 for St. Oswalds Hospice.
We are so excited for Elmer’s Great North Parade and cannot wait to see our Harton Primary School elephant on the trail. During our project day the children put forward their own design ideas and they were amazing. We cannot wait to share them with you.
We started celebrating Easter this week with a range of activities. All classes decorated boiled eggs and some year groups enjoyed a visit from the Storyteller. She retold the Easter Week Story, and the children reflected on events.
There was a lot of chocolate on display in assembly! The winners of the Egg Decorating Competition were awarded with their prizes, and the winners of the sustainably sourced Easter Egg Chocolate Raffle were announced. The raffle supports Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and UTZ. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated to charities suggested by our School Council.
Happy Easter everyone!
