Chinese New Year

The children tasted rice, made lanterns and created a dragon dance to celebrate Chinese New Year.

The Three Little Pigs Rap! Booh Yahh!

Medieval Fayre

The children enjoyed the School Parade as part of the Medieval Fayre. The atmosphere was buzzing and everyone made a great effort dressing in 'Jubilee' themed outfits. 





Local History

The children walked around Sedgefield looking for dates, histroric buildings and things that were new to the village. Later in the afternoon, the children cut up the pictures and sorted them into 'history' and 'new' features.

British Science Week

This year the theme was 'Growth'. We planted cress and predicted it's height, before measuring it with a ruler at the end of the week. We measured the children in the class and discussed heights.

World Book Day

The children have completed a book scavenger hunt, a personalised bookmark and presented information about an author. 


The children have been completing addition number sentences using a rekenrek and ten frames.
