Our School Council have been busy deciding where our winning banner designs could be placed around the allotment. We think they look amazing!
On January 16th, 23 year 5 children took part in the Newcastle Eagles Hoops4Health basketball tournament. The 3 teams took part in a group stage – comprised of 6 teams per group (30 teams in total from 10 different schools).
Each team worked incredibly hard fought for every point!
Harton 1 and 2 go through to the Play-Offs, and had to face each other. With Harton 2 progressing to the final stage of the tournament, only to be beaten by Biddick Hall in a nail-biting match – losing 4:2 (2 baskets to 1).
We could not be more proud of the effort and teamwork they children displayed, and they all left both tired and thrilled with what they achieved that day.
We use our Positive Vibes Box every Friday. It makes us feel fantastic to say something positive about someone, and to receive a complimentary comment.
We have been very busy in Nursery during the last few weeks. On Wednesday we had our very first Stay and Play. There were lots of songs to sing and a visit from Williby Roc’s.
Milk money for the Spring term is now due. A total cost of £9.10 is to be made, should your child want milk in school. The last day for milk payments is Friday 10th January 2020. Due to regulations, no payments will be accepted after this date.
If you have completed a Free School Meal application form and you are eligible for free meals as a result of Universal Credit, you do not have to pay for your child’s milk. Please note that the new milk rota will start week beginning, Monday 13th January 2020.
We have introduced a new online learning platform called NumBots. This game is aimed at boosting addition and subtraction skills for all aged children.
Since the success of Times Tables Rockstars in encouraging children to master times table and division fact instant recall, we would like their skills with mental addition and subtraction to be just as good. NumBots will help! More importantly, children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 can access the games.
All children start at the same place in Story mode, and when they get to a certain stage they will unlock Challenge mode. The idea is that they play little and often, and this will significantly improve their understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.
The login is exactly the same as the one for Times Tables Rockstars – Key Stage 1 parents should have received parent letters with new login details.
Times Tables Rockstars app and NumBots app are available to download on all android and Apple devices.
We have had some visitors for the day in Nursery. We danced, created a large Nursery flag, found out about castles and learned how to be a Knight.
