This half-term our topic is 'All about us'.
In the Juniors, we are beginning to write a biography about someone that inspires us.
The infants have been looking at 'tall and small' measurements and making skeletons using art straws. They have also been writing all about themselves.
Also in the infants and early year class we are looking at all the similarities and differences we all have, in this class and also all around the world. We have used a variety of materials to create self-portraits and more recently have used the book 'Only One You' to discover what makes each of us special and give us some good quotes to lead a happy life- our favourite is 'smile'. We all love to smile- give it a try it makes you feel happy.
Last week, the Juniors went to Tullie House to learn about the artist 'Turner'. We saw some of his artwork and learnt different watercolour techniques as well as having a go at quick 2-minute sketches of his work.
The whole school, once again, has experienced wheelchair sports with Nat. We find this really fun and a good chance to see how disabled people can take part in sport and achieve amazing things!
This week is Road Safety Week and on Wednesday the school is taking part in 'Stripy Day' to raise money for charities.
Some of the Junior children took part in the Cross-Country competition at Sheepmount last week. There were over 150 children in each race so we did really well!
Year 4 and 5 children are looking forward to the upcoming Athletics event at Caldew Sports Hall.
We really enjoy being at this school and would recommend Raughton Head School to anyone!
