The school have been taking part in raising money for Toilet Twinning.
Please see the article which appeared in the Northern Echo and also the email that the school received from the Toilet Twinning organisation.
The school were asked to join in the celebrations at the church.
The school held a Christingle Service on 16th December at the church at Cowshill.
The infants performed a puppet show created by Mrs Evans and Mr Harle called The Three Billy Pigs Gruff. The infants designed, made and then performed the show in front of an audience who were delighted . Well done!
Our performance of Lenny on the Front Line was a huge success! An amazing feel-good factor evening made all the more special with our community choir and also the fact that the children only started rehearsing two and a half weeks ago. After the performance, KS2 sold cards, decorations, decorated pebbles and christmas tree decorations to raise money for www.toilettwinnng.org.
KS2 took part in an outreach session delivered by Alison Smith from The Bowes Museum! They followed the true story of Sydney Dobson, a young boy from Burnhope (Stanley) who ran away from home to join the great war. (One Boy’s War by Lynn Huggins-Cooper). During the story, Alison showed the children various artefacts from the war – including a very delicate heart shaped pin cushion that had been made by a soldier who was convalescing. At the end of the session, the class made a sweet heart pin cushion to give to someone special. This was a super link to our work with Mr Heatherington from The Weardale Museum about first world war silks.
Wearhead children observed 2 minutes’ silence on Tuesday 11th November by the Weardale Society oak tree (given to us to commemorate the start of WW1 100 years ago). After singing WE WILL REMEMBER, a small poppy cross was placed by the tree and a short poem read.
The School are taking part in a Mayfly Nymphs in the Classroom Project. This entails collecting the Mayfly from the local river and observing their life cycle using suitable equipment set up in the junior classroom.
