To recognise anti-bullying week, which is next week (16th November to 20th November), we are asking the children to come to school wearing odd socks on Monday 16th November 2020.
Year 4 – Collage ‘Dancing Figures’
As part of Year 4’s Art lessons, they have been learning about the famous artist ‘Henri Matisse’. The children have researched his work and his life to find out why he created his wonderful masterpieces.
Matisse became ill, ended up in a wheelchair, and was unable to paint in style he was use to, so he came up with a new style and called it ‘Painting with Scissor’. The children were challenged to create their own art piece based on the same style and used scissors, a variety of warm and cool colours to create a collage with a focus on dancing figures.
Mrs Meek sent Megan Coyle an email with all the children work and she has now replied and put some of the children’s work on her blog.

Our teachers are working hard to ensure that learning can be continued at home. We will be posting up daily work for children who may be absent whilst the school is still open and educational packs will also be provided in the event of school closures, which children can be working on whilst at home. These are available on the class Work Pages a link to which can be found on each Class Page.
During one of our Eco Group meetings it was decided that we could link two important areas together – recycling and helping the homeless. We discovered that a lady in London was recycling foil crisp packets to make into ‘Bivi bags’ – a sleeping bag. Mrs Ashcroft, Ginny and Bea, kindly offered to go along to a meeting in Bishop Auckland to learn all about the scheme and to take part in making a bivi bag. She then returned to school to feedback what she had learned to Mrs Lambard and Mrs Routledge. Now Mrs Routledge has set up a team of helpers in after-school club who clean, dry and cut the foil crisp packets that we have been collecting in school. She will then iron them together so that we can send the foil blankets off to London to be made into a bivi bag. Each bivi bags needs around 150 crisp packets!
