Paper Christmas Baubles
Yesterday, we had so much fun making paper baubles with Mrs Richter! We used 4 strips of paper and we made 2 crosses. Then we drew on them. We put the two crosses together and then pulled the strips upwards and joined them together at the top. It needed a lot of concentration or else it would all go wrong! We tied some wool on the top so we could hang the bauble up. I took mine home and hung it on my mum and dad’s door. Some people made more baubles at home. We really enjoyed making them.

The children had fantastic time on Friday at Woodhorn Museum, as part of our topic about local mining history.
They explored original colliery buildings and watched machinery whizz into action. They saw how the shaft was sunk, how the mine was ventilated and how the cage lowered men into the ground safely.
Working Down The Pit
They got dressed for dirty work down the coal mine where they crawled through tunnels. They discovered the tools that helped keep the miners safe underground and found out what it was like to bend their back digging for coal.
The Art of Mining
The children were inspired by the paintings of the Ashington Group, also known as the Pitmen Painters, and had a go at recreating some of their best loved work. The workshop introduced the pupils to some of the techniques used to create the paintings, including perspective, light and dark and details.

This week we were very lucky to have a visit from the author Adam Bushnell. He worked with us in class and we each created and described a monster and a hero. After we had written our descriptions, he came back to our class again and we wrote a battle scene between our monster and our hero. What super writing! Here are some of them:-
The Battle by Annabel
At that very moment, Wondereus threw her boomerang headband but she missed. Then she saw its sharp, sharp teeth. She was shaken, but said “I’m still not scared of you!” With one slice of her boomerang the monster fell down dead!
The Battle by Zoe
Wasting no time, the hyper monster shot out smoke from its nose. Almost at once, Mollyeus stepped forward and spun her marvellous mace in the air. As soon as she spoke, the monster stung her with his bee stinger. Mollyeus said “You are going to die!” The monster said “Really?” Mollyeus drew her sword and said “Ding!” The monster shot out fire from his human feet. The hero Mollyeus took a deep breath. As quick as a wink the monster stole Mollyeus’ sword and chopped off her head!
The Battle by Amelia
At once, Amelia took her sword out and hit the monster. Suddenly, the monster tangled her in his tongue. Instantly, Amelia wrapped her hook around the monster. In the end, Amelia took her glitter bow and killed the monster with it.
