Year 4 Skipping Festival

After weeks of practise, Year 4 got the chance to show off their skipping skills at the Gateshead SSP Skipping Festival. Last half term, they took part in a skipping taster session and since then the progress has been phenomenal! Children have perfected their skipping techniques and gained confidence to try new skills. At the event, Year 4 competed against 4 other Catholic schools in individual, partner and team events to showcase all of their skills. They also got creative in their ‘skip-dance’ routine with some impressive rope work (and flossing!) At the end of the event, when they were all skipped-out, lots of children received bronze, silver and gold certificates and all of Year 4 were rewarded with participation certificates to reward their commitment, effort and ‘have-a-go’ attitude. I am immensely proud of all of Year 4 for their hard-work preparing for this festival- Well done!

Gardening in the sun

First, we had to soften the soil to make it suitable for planting. Next, we added vermiculite to help keep the soil nice and wet. We put…Continue Reading
