We’ve had another busy week this week.
We started on Monday 12th July with Messy Church. Everyone who attended had a great time and completed a range of craft activities before sharing worship with Father David. Of course there was something tasty to tuck into after all of that hard work!
Class One took part in sessions 2 and 3 of the John Muir Award this week. Working in our very own woodland and also in Ebchester Woods, the class had the opportunity to create ‘smelly cocktails’, have a mini-beast hunt, build journey sticks and also go pond dipping. Great fun! The pupils have now had the opportunity to discover and explore their local environments. I wonder what they will be doing in the next session?
Sophie and Eve have also written a poem about John Muir and their experiences when working towards the award.
Today we did the John Muir Award,
We discovered, explored, conserve and share,
Right now we’re in Ebchester Woods,
Out in the fresh air.
John Muir was a crazy guy,
He like to look after nature,
But every now and then,
He like to go on an adventure!
He made a getting out of bed machine,
He tied himself to a tree,
He looked after the habitats,
And inspired you and me.
That’s why we do the John Muir Award,
Doing everything we could,
To help protect the area,
And wildlife as we should.
To earn this award was lots of fun,
This award is for everyone!
Tuesday 13th June
Linked to the topic of the Romans, the Year 5 and 6 pupils visited VIndolanda and the Roman Army Museum. Luckily, the weather was kind and the class had a great time. They found out all about what Roman forts looked like and chatted to an archaeologist who let them handle artefacts which had been found that day.
Wednesday 14th June
Our Kwik Cricket team played their first two matches this week (after being rained off last week).
Congratulations are in order as they won both matches! Everyone is looking forward to next week and the next 2 matches!
Friday 16th June
The Ebchester Mini- Police visited Moorside Primary School to see the police helicopter. What an amazing experience. Not only did the class get to see the helicopter land, they also managed to sit inside the helicopter and ask the pilot questions.
