Children in Need
School has looked very spotty today! Thank you very much to everyone who dressed in spots and donated to Children in Need.
Year 6 Road Safety Quiz
On Thursday of next week, Year 6 will all be taking part in a Road Safety Quiz. Please ensure your child has read and learnt as much of the book provided as possible. Last year, our Year 6 cohort qualified to the Stockton finals and were the overall winners of the Stockton Road Safety competition! Let’s see if we can retain our title!
Phunky Foods in KS1
Children in Year 1 and Year 2 have enjoyed preparing and tasting a gorgeous vegetarian chilli. We were very lucky to have Heather from Phunky Foods in who showed us how to cut vegetables carefully. It was very impressive to see children try new vegetables such as peppers and kidney beans. Recipes for this lovely dish, along with other tasty treats can be found on the Phunky Foods website.
Y5/6 Girls Football
On Wednesday afternoon, the Year 5/6 girls’ football team competed in their first tournament this year. They incredibly managed to win every competitive game (2-0, 2-0 and 5-0) with brilliant goals from Sophie B, Sophie D and Olivia L. Head Girl, Liyana M was also recognised as Junction Farm’s player of the tournament. The effort from all the girls was fantastic and they will now compete in the next round representing the Stockton cluster. Onwards and upwards girls!
Actionwork’s 2017 Anti-Bullying Week Competition
On Thursday, Mrs Macdonald delivered an assembly relating to National Anti-Bullying Week. As part of this, we have decided to enter a competition sponsored by Actionwork, to design a buddy or peer support scheme that could possibly run within our school. Entries must be in school, handed to Mrs Macdonald, by 11th December. Actionwork have an extensive list of prizes available (see entry sheet).
It’s that wonderful time of year where you may be buying your child computer games for Christmas. Please can all adults be extra vigilant when checking the age restrictions on some games. The cover may look child friendly, but could be rated as 18+ or even 21+. Many of these games contain adult content which is inappropriate for children. Thank you for your support.
We have been completing Gruffalo activities this week including wanted posters and Gruffalo caves. Next week we are reading the Gruffalo’s Child. Here in Early Years we have started to rehearse the songs for our upcoming nativity performance. We are very excited and looking forward to finding out the parts we will be playing.
A copy of the school’s gritting plan is attached to the newsletter this week. This has marked on the path to follow when slippery outside.
Well done Diamond!
