On Tuesday 16th December, we held our School Christmas Dinner. A traditional roast was enjoyed by all the children, served to them by the staff. It was fantastic to have the pre-school with us. They all enjoyed their dinner and then sang some of their favourite songs to us.
For the meal, we created our own Christmas crackers. We enjoyed telling each other our Christmas jokes.
Thank you to Mrs King and Miss Smith who worked so hard in the kitchen to ensure that all the children had a delicious lunch.
Elf at Newton Ferrers C of E Primary School
An elf has been leaving clues to his whereabouts and his after school activities around the school this week.
The week started with him unwrapping the presents in Class 1 which the children had been learning to wrap. Apparently, the elf did not do this to be mischievous but wanted to help Class 1 by teaching them how to wrap a present. He has also had lots of fun during a snowball fight with The Gruffalo, awarded himself a Head Boy Badge and nominated himself for the Courtesy Cup. What will he get up to in the last week of term?
On Friday 24th October, the children in Key Stage 2 invited a female friend or relative to school to enjoy lunch with them.
We had over 20 extra visitors for a lunch of Salmon Bites and Chips. Thank you to all the Mums, Grandma's. Sisters and Neighbours who joined the children. Special thanks to Mrs King, our kitchen manager, for cooking so many extra meals.
Wild Night Out Year 3 and 4 -JUNE 2014
On Thursday 26th June the Year 3’s and 4’s went on their Wild Night Out with Mrs Caunter, Mrs Dixon and Mr Fuller. We went there to learn about surviving outside and to have fun…we really did!
When we got to Parsonage Bridge, we parked the mini bus and met our instructors called Jenny, Mark and Becky. They told us that it was a 1 mile walk to camp. On the way to camp, we saw wild plants like garlic. We also saw white, fluffy sheep. When we got to camp, some people were tired but some of us still had lots of energy so we played a game of stuck in the mud.
After a while we all helped put up the tipis. They were massive and we had to put up 3! One for the boys, one for the Year 3 girls and one for the Year 4 girls. On the boys tent Mark had to put a bin bag on the top otherwise it would leak. After that we had to put the ground mat down. It was very tiring but finally we did it. (Phew!)
Then after an hour we made and cooked our own pizza. We made a fire using small sticks and we had to blow the ash to get it going. To keep it going, we had to keep putting sticks on it. It was very smoky! Next we placed the pizza on the fire to let it cook. When it started to bubble we took it off the fire. My pizza was definitely the herbiest!
In the evening after a long day of canoeing, we had hot chocolate which was lovely. Then we ate some chocolate cake that Milly had kindly brought in. Then at about 11:30 we all had cookies…(Tesco’s Finest)!
At the end of our Wild Night Out I was sad to leave but I learnt lots about surviving outside and we all had fun making up a song. I can’t wait to go again!
