Thank you very much!
New Penshaw Cardboard Arcade
During Science Week, the children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 developed ideas on how to make an arcade game from cardboard. Sounds difficult? Not for us! By delving in to the use of engineering and mechanical skill, children created some amazing games to play with family members on Friday afternoon. The hall was filled with cheers and laughter and everyone was giving the games a real good go!
Thank you to family members who helped to develop the arcade game as well as the those who came along to take part! We had so much fun!
We are now a Silver Awarded Eco School
This week, the whole school has worked hard to develop areas of the Eco Award. To develop the school, we have worked on the outdoor area, created birdfeeders to promote biodiversity, ensured recycling happened in all classrooms and children took part in a litter pick! What a great week it has been!
The beginning of something exciting!
This week, we are beginning to develop our outdoor area by painting tyres to create fun plant pots! Soon, they will be filled with amazing, colourful flowers and a sensory garden!
Can you help?
Over the next few weeks, we will be collecting items for Science week (Week beginning Monday 9th March) Eco Warriors are collecting the following items to create birdfeeders:
– 1L and 2L bottles
– Wooden and plastic spoons
– Egg boxes
– Bird feed
Any donations would be greatly appreciated!
We’ve achieved the gold, now let’s get platinum!
We are very proud of our school this week as we have achieved the Green Tree School Gold Award from the Woodland Trust… what an achievement. This week, we were sent a wonderful plaque and we wanted to post to show it off to you all!
The Eco Board is done!
We are currently in the process of developing our new Eco Board. Here, the children of New Penshaw can see our action plan, environmental review, and our lovely bronze certificate. We also have a suggestions folder where children can help us with ideas on how to develop our Eco footprint. We hope you like our new board, check back soon with updates from the Eco Warriors!
Year 3 work with Groundworks
28.1.20 – Year 3 develop our Key Stage 1 area working with Groundworks
Today, Year 3 have had the opportunity to start our development of the outdoor learning space. We were very lucky to have Jane from Groundworks to give a helping hand and offer many hints and tips. We started by trowelling through soil which will prepare it for lovely plants to be added. We have also took our time to tidy and look after the green spaces we have.
This is a really great development for the Eco Warrior team, we are excited to continue our hard work!
