The children had a busy morning visiting the Gleeson Homes site in Blackhall.
Dressed in their hi vis jackets and hard hats off they went into the site.
We were extremely sensible as we walked through the building site to Plot 102.
Paula chatted to us about being safe on the site. We discussed why we were wearing the hi vis jackets and hats.
“We put our hard hats on to keep safe.” Joseph
We got to see some of the machinery that is used on the site.
Our next job was to have a go at bricklaying.
The staff and children from Class 1 would like to thank everyone at Gleeson Homes and our volunteers for a fantastic morning.
Children from Key Stage 1 visited St Aidan’s school to take part in a maths challenge. They participated in 4 rounds coming first in the Countdown challenge and winning a tie break question.
Well done to the team and thank you for being fantastic ambassadors for our school!
Energy Heroes led a whole school assembly to educate our children to become models of energy efficiency.
Year 5 then worked with Energy Experts on a variety of challenges around the theme of being ‘energy literate’ supporting them to
develop lifelong skills that will help them to make informed choices about energy use and climate change.
Children in Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed a relaxing retreat at the Youth Village. All children participated in a range of activities and as always behaviour was fantastic.
A BIG well done to all of the winners of the Easter raffle- enjoy your prizes!
Children were very respectful and prayerful as we joined in unity with our federated school Our Lady of Lourdes, Shotton, in our day for peace. Watch this space for some beautiful work produced today.
