On Thursday 3 teams took part in the South Tyneside Boccia tournament. All 3 teams won their individual groups and progressed to the semi finals. Unfortunately 2 of the teams, Harton A and Harton C, met each other in the semi final and only one could progress. In the other semi final Harton B beat Hadrian. This meant that Harton A played Harton B in the final with Harton B running out the winners. The children will now progress to the county finals.
As part of our History topic of toys from the past, Year One had a visit from That History Bloke! Richard came to speak to us about life in Victorian times and we even got the chance to play with some Victorian toys!
We were excited to see the kind of things children in those times would have played with, and thought carefully about how things have changed. It was fascinating and lots of fun.
Thank you to the parents and guardians who attended our recent meeting about keeping your child safe online.
The lovely people who work at The Openzone@The Word are busy developing a series of E-Safety videos aimed at helping you to help your children stay as safe as possible online.
A link to the first of the videos can be found below ( I hope it works!!!), if you are having trouble accessing or viewing the video please let me know and I’ll reset the link.
I hope you find it helpful.
In year 1 we have been learning about mammals as part of our Science topic. We know that mammals are warm blooded, give birth to live babies and that they usually have hair or fur.
We were lucky enough to have a visit from Animal antics and got to meet lots of new animal friends, some of them were mammals! We listened to the facts and had to classify the animals before we got to see them. Our favourite animal was the chicken, who reminded us of Pollito from Despicable Me 2!
The Puzzlers are raising money for their trip to the national Lego League competition. They have designed 8 different badges and are planning on selling them for 50p each, to go towards the flights and hotel for the event.
So the children have started cutting and pressing their badges on a lunchtime. Only about 500 left to go!
We all know the value of good attendance at School and this morning Harton Primary hosted an assembly for all those children whose School attendance was 100% in the Autumn Term. There were 137 children and lots of parents!! Parents and caregivers were invited in for a bacon sandwich and a drink. All children received a certificate and the chance to take part in an attendance prize draw. Children then visited the attendance shop to collect lots of prizes – one for each full week of attendance. We all had a fantastic time and look forward to even more parents and children celebrating 100% attendance in the Summer Term.
Some members of our School Council have been writing poems on the theme of diversity. We have entered a competition run by Premier League Primary Stars, and have had some fantastic ideas.
We have had a busy time in Nursery this Christmas!
We have had Stay and Play, where we sang some songs and made some Christmas Crafts. We had a great Christmas Party with lots of games, dancing and party food. There was also a Special Visitor all of the way from the North Pole! Not forgetting the creative session we had with Willoby Rocs, where we made three different types of decorations to take home for our Christmas trees.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Nursery.
Some beautiful baubles have arrived from St. Anthony’s College in Malaga, Spain. This is the second year we have exchanged cards and baubles made by our some of pupils and some of St. Anthony’s pupils. We really like the mix of English and Spanish Christmas themed vocabulary on the baubles. Feliz Navidad, y prospero ano nuevo – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
