How much is in your Piggybank?

Y3D are loving their new rewards system! Each group has their own piggy-bank and when children do something amazing or work fabulously as a team they earn money for their piggybank. At the end of each week children count how much they have in their piggybank and the winning table who have the most money can exchange it for a prize from the reward chart! This weeks winning table was Green table with £27! They choose a prize of Hot Chocolate with marshmallows and cookies with Miss Devlin this break time! Yummy! We wonder which table will win this week?

Y3D Tranquil Treehouse Session

Y3D enjoyed a fabulous meditation and yoga session delivered by Nadia from the Tranquil Treehouse.
We learned lots of new, exciting ways of thinking about our emotions. We never knew Yoga actually came about 5000 years ago!
It was really cool and fun we spotted some of our favourite sports starts completing yoga like Andy Murray, Ryan Giggs and Lady Gaga.
Today we learnt the camel and cobbler pose and chilled out whilst we meditated to some beautiful music – take a look!

Y3D Christmas Party!

Y3D had a fabulous time at their amazing Christmas party!
We played lots of fun party games, ate delicious party food and got our groove on at the disco!
We showed some unique dance moves and routines to our favourite tunes!
We all looked sensational!
Here’s a few pictures of us all having the best time ever!

Y3D had a fabulous time visiting the Great North Museum to find out lots about fossils.

We then had a lovely stroll along Northumberland Street to visit the wonderful Fenwick’s Festive Window to link in with our current Christmas Novel ‘The Snowman’. The children really enjoyed it and it was lovely to see their faces light out with the great design and moving windows.

Feliz Navidad and Merry Christmas!

In Year 3 and 4 we have been connecting with other cultures. We found out that some Spanish customs and traditions at Christmas time are similar to our own. Then we made cards and baubles to reflect what our local area can look like in Winter. We will be exchanging these with a school in Spain we have connections with.

Mr Donnelly visited Wellbeing Club this week and taught the group some greetings in Spanish. Pupils played a game to reinforce the language. They will use these new skills to communicate with Spanish pupils.
