What we've been up to ...
We have been learning a poem called 'Lottie Potter'. The class them performed this to Class 3. They used expression, rhythm and rhyme to impress their Class 3 audience. Great job everyone.
Class 9 had the opportunity to perform their 'Ancient Egypt' themed routine to the rest of the school. They put an excellent performance which the crowd loved and should be very proud of themselves. Keeeeep Dancing
Coxhoe See Incredible Ice Queen
Class 9 returned to the Pantomime for the fourth time. We thoroughly enjoyed the performance at East Durham College. The children then created some fantastic newspapers reporting the event.
Class 9 did tremendously well at our in-school Gymnastics Festival. Performing to Mr Blue Sky, they created a seaside theme. They even managed to win the KS2 festival! Great job everyone.
We visited St. Mary's church for our Harvest Festival. The children donated lots of food to help support Durham Food Bank. It was great to see lots of family attend and hope we impressed them with our poems 'Pumpkin Poem' and 'Harvest Moon'.
European Day of Languages
Lingotot came in to teach lots of new languages. We also celebrated the European Day of Languages by researching the country Greece. Our questions were then used for the whole school quiz around the track!
Active Ted is continuing his busy schedule. So far he has been walking, trampolining, performing gymnastics and squeezed in a Junior Great North Run. He’s hoping to get up active for 30 minutes at home. Keep going Ted.
Author Adam Bushnell paid us a visit and gave us some tips on how to write epic stories. The focus was on the Anglo Saxon legend of Beowulf. We can’t wait to read them!
Some of the class are enjoying their new brass tuition. The class are working together to compose a piece of music. It sounds great.
