Year 5 have enjoyed learning how to use a protractor. We did this by drawing angles onto the tables and carefully measuring each other’s, we understand the importance of accuracy when measuring angles.

Darren for SSP came to teach the children the game End Zone. The children scored points if a member of the team caught it in the 'End Zone'. The class played in their team colours with the Red Team coming out on top.

On Thursday morning the Year 5 pupils participated in Danish long ball. The aim of the game was to get the basketball into the end zone without moving or running whilst holding the ball. This required effective team work and communication. The children worked in their house teams and discussed then tested different strategies to see which method was the most effective. Their team scores were recorded and in both Toucans and Jaguars, the winning house was Green!

On Thursday Year 3 and 4 were transformed into Ancient Greek Gods, Goddesses and Soldiers for the day!  We had great fun making a Greek Salad, taking part in a treasure hunt for mythical creatures, playing Ancient Greek Olympic sports, making a water clock and finally making an ancient Greek vase from clay.  The children had a great time!

 

On Wednesday evening, 31 pupils from KS2 completed in the Durham Dash at Beamish Museum alongside 33 other schools!  The children did amazingly well, with our school winning 4 medals!

Hello everyone,

 

I hope you all have a lovely week. We’ve had another busy week at FMPS.

Year 5 and 6 classes (Jaguars and Toucans) went to Weardale Adventure Centre. The children arrived at a beautiful quarry where they paddleboard in the sunshine. The children had to use teamwork and communicate effectively on the mammoth paddleboard, where they all had to work as a team to get back to shore. Teamwork and communication were again important in the other activities where they needed to complete games using these skills to earn prizes to make a fire. After this, the children helped to light the fire before toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate. 

A big thank you to our instructors Simon, Phil, Dylan and Connor, who helped and encouraged the children.

On Thursday, the Year 5 and 6 children enjoyed our fabulous French café with Mrs Raine. As well as learning how to speak in French, they also got to enjoy some delicious French food including: fresh baguette from the bakery, various French cheeses, pain au chocolate and more! The children then spoke in French to share their thoughts on the taste, mostly “J’adore”!

On Friday Year 1/2 thoroughly enjoyed Zumba this morning! They learnt some new moves and danced their socks off.

The whole school thoroughly enjoyed working with Adam Bushnell this week. In the morning we created our own mythical beasts, then used adjectives and adverbs to describe their appearance and behaviour. In the afternoon we designed our mythical heroes and used AI to generate their names and attributes. We also had the opportunity to wear armour and handle weaponsPlease see the photos below of Year 3 & 4.
