Superpowers in Action!
Skip-a-thon for charity – The children participated in a Skip-a-thon to help raise money for charity: Woman In Need. We had lots of fun trying to beat each other’s score of how many skips we could do in 10 minutes!
What is anti-social behaviour? – The children in Diamond Learning Zone had a visit from the police this week. They took part in a workshop on anti-social behaviour and learnt why it was important to look after our village and other areas.
Am I ready for secondary school? – The children in Year 6 had lots of fun taking part in the It’s Your Move workshop. As it’s nearly the end of the year, it was a perfect time to discuss our move to secondary school. Children had the opportunity to share any worries they have as well as discuss what they are looking forward to.
How can I identify dangers and potential hazards? – The children in Diamond Learning Zone were given the opportunity to take part in a Safer Futures workshop presented by County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue service. The children correctly identified potential hazards in and outside of the home and gained some fantastic knowledge!
Why is it important to know basic first aid? – The children in Diamond Learning zone received a visit from the police to discuss the importance of first aid. The children were given a demonstration on how to give CPR and were later encouraged to practise the skills they had learnt. Rosie did a fantastic job!
