On the last Friday afternoon of school before breaking up for the Christmas holidays, the children enjoyed a walk along to the village to sing carols to the households of Greenhaugh. We do hope that all who were there to listen enjoyed it as much as the children did. What a lovely way to end the Autumn term.
We had a fantastic afternoon meeting Luciana's two ferrets and learning how to look after them. We also watched them down race up and down tubes and then took them for a walk round the hall!
Thank you to Luciana and her mum for making our last afternoon before half term so interesting and enjoyable.
The whole school enjoyed a day of problem solving, team building and learning new skills with Paul Mordue from Wild About Adventure.
From helping team mates through the Spider's Web, making the longest ball run, manoeuvering along the slack line, to learning the finer art of archery, all children thoroughly enjoyed this special day and it was lovely seeing our Year 4s using their fantastic leadership skills. Well done everyone!
Our Harvest Celebration began at school where children and parents, friends and community members were welcomed to join us in our walk from school to St Aidan's Church. It was a beautiful morning for everyone to enjoy our countryside. The church was beautifully decorated as it had been their Harvest Festival Celebration the day before. The children performed a variety of poems, songs and readings about different harvest celebrations around the world. After the service Rector Susan showed the children a variety of local produce including eggs, goats milk, apples from the community orchard and homemade bread. Thank you to everyone who donated tins and dried foods which were taken to the local food bank at Waitrose in Hexham.
Year 1 to Year 4 weekly ukulele lessons are well underway and all the children are enjoying their tuition. Mr Reed, the ukulele tutor is really pleased with their progress and the musicality emanating from the classroom is a pleasure to hear. The children will have 15 sessions of this tuition and we are hoping to have a little concert for parents which will be at the end of this term.
