Little Sprouts Dojo Reward
Recently Year 3 had the privilege of attending Mr Drake’s bookshop which is situated in the ‘Enterprise Arcade’ in Stockton. This was part of the ‘Guinness Book of Records’ attempt¬†to try to beat the record of having the most children taking part in a written competition¬†as part of ‘World Book Day’. Mr Drake was very impressed with the behaviour of year 3 students and commented on how they were a credit to St Cuthbert’s School.¬† Mr Drake set them a competition whilst they were in his shop and he was¬†very impressed with their concentration and commitment to finishing the task set.
The following Friday Mr Drake attended our assembly to announce the winners of the competition he set, again he praised the children for their outstanding behaviour and invited all the children to his shop to choose a book for ‘World Book Day’,¬†using the ¬£1 voucher they will receive on ‘World Book Day’.¬† He expressed his amazement at how well the children scored in what he described as being ¬†“A very tricky competition which had himself and¬†some of the adults¬†really having to think of¬†answers to some of the questions.”¬† The picture below shows the winning team ‘The Lego Friends’¬† Ellie-Ann, Amelia and Leza with their prize which was a ¬£5.00¬†book token.
Just a quick message to thank you for suggesting a group come and see us Yesterday – they were brilliant! Once again the Arcade was a buzz of young people and once again they did the school proud. Please pass on my thanks to the staff and thank you again. I look forward to seeing classes here soon or me popping back in to school for some speaking and listening.
The Day ‘The Planetarium’ Came To School.
Tuesday the¬†1st of¬†March was the day ‘The Planetarium’ came to school and the children had the opportunity to see the stars during the day in a special blow up dome. The children crawled into the dome then were seated, each class had a different experience whilst in the dome and below are some of the comments from the children:
¬†¬†¬† Year 3:¬† Sola:¬†I thought it was brilliant when the stars came out.¬† We were sat in darkness and then suddenly it looked like there were a¬†million stars above us. ¬† Tom:¬† It was really interesting Mr McCue told us a story about North, South, East and West and gave us a rhyme so that we could remember them¬†‘Never Eat Shredded Wheat’.¬† He also told us how all the planets go around the Sun and that they spin as they go.¬†¬†
Year 4:¬† Morgan: It was amazing I got to sit right in the middle and saw all the different¬† stars.¬† Mr McCue explained to use that they were called consolations and he pointed out the Big Bear and Little Bear to us.¬† Abigail: I loved it¬†and thought it¬†was very exciting. When Mr McCue pointed out the Big Bear and the Little Bear consolations to us he told us a very interesting story about them.¬†
Year 5:¬† Aneta: I thought it was great fun, Mr McCue¬†explained about the different consolations pointing out the Big Bear and Little Bear he showed us how to make patterns and animals from looking at the¬†stars from different angles.¬† Victor: I found it very interesting¬†he showed us a Swan, the Big Bear and Little Bear, then showed us a model of the sun and named¬†all the planets around it.
Year 6:¬† Charlotte: I thought it was fantastic very interesting and informative.¬† Mr McCue told us some stories about the stars and said that¬†they were Greek Myths.¬† Colin:¬† I thought it was fascinating I didn’t realise there were so many stars and different consolations.¬† Mr McCue told us that a lot of the consolations had stories behind them and explained this by telling us a few Greek Myths.
World Book Day
Below are some pictures from our world book day. The children and staff made a great effort dressing up as characters from their class book.¬† We also had the privilage of having an author in school for the day Mr David Jowsey,¬†he¬†worked with all the classes and they all enjoyed the different tasks they were doing with him.¬†
