Hello everyone,

 

Once again lots to talk about! Thank you to everyone who came to KS1 sports day this afternoon.

This week, Sam shared his fantastic knowledge about gemstones with us. We learnt all about their formation and different types that exist. We were also lucky enough to see some gemstones from Sam's personal collection - our class favourite was the Tiger's Eye! It was wonderful to see you speaking with such confidence and passion about your chosen subject. Thank you so much, Sam!

Anzor made and gave a fantastic presentation all about his many hobbies. We discovered that he's been playing the piano since he was six years old and tries to practise every day. He's performed in three concerts and he showed us a video clip of one performance. Anzor's other hobbies include chess, swimming, football and Taekwando. Well done, Anzor! You definitely make the most of your spare time!

Yesterday, our school choir had a fantastic opportunity to sing at the historical Durham Cathedral. The choir have been working hard rehearsing ten chosen songs including 'Bring me sunshine', 'Blue Moon' and 'Here comes the sun'. They sang beautifully in front of a very large audience and they finished with a standing ovation. Miss Robson is very proud of them! Well done Choir!

Hello everyone,

 

Its been a fun week at FMPS this week.

Today we had a very special visitor come to nursery, The ice cream man! The children all brought in £1.50 in a purse or wallet and were able to visit the ice cream van to buy their own ice cream. They could choose a Mr Whippy with a flake and add some yummy strawberry sauce on the top. The rain didn’t stop us from all enjoying a yummy ice cream and the children all had so much fun.

Fun in Jaguars

This week we have had fun with a range of exciting lessons. In English, we have been developing our speaking and listening skills through the use of role play interviews. We looked at the purpose and audience of different interviews (linking to different careers too) and then had a go at interviewing players and spectators from football matches.

Tara’s Time To Shine

Tara wanted to tell us all about Kumon. It's an after school activity where you can go for extra learning in Maths and English.

Six Ten Problem 

Year 6 tackled the six ten problem, where 6 dice are facing up of one number and 10 of another. The difference between the two different numbers had to be 2. The children tried different numbers to see if they could find a pattern, which they did spotting that all the totals were multiples of 4 and that this meant the difference between the two numbers being multiplied by 4.

Y3 / 4 Fieldwork Visit to Hamstley

We had a fantastic day at Hamsterley Forest carrying out orienteering activities, river fieldwork and den building. We used a compass and compass directions to find hidden treasures, used an orienteering map to locate control points, produced sketch maps, created a river bed profile by measuring depth across the width, calculated river velocity on the inside and outside of meander and even had time to construct dens. The sun shone and so did our superb geographical knowledge - well done, Tigers!

In the afternoon, the children took part in obstacle, skipping, sprint, sack, egg and spoon race in front of a captive audience. Sports Day finished with the house captain relay! The Yellow team were eventually crowned the winning house. WELL DONE YELLOW TEAM.
