Aycliffe Care Home: Celebrating Christmas as a Community
After what has been an unusual year for the local community, the children in Year 6 wanted to spread a little Christmas cheer and so with the warmest Christmas wishes they have sent Christmas cards and calendars to the residents at Aycliffe Care Home.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Year 5 - Young Journalists Academy
Today has been the start of an exciting adventure for Year 5, working with John Jerreries from the YJA.
As the children entered school this morning, instead of the average class day, Year 5 entered the world of journalism. At the beginning of the day, we re-introduced ourselves to each other, by sharing our passions and interests. This led us onto interviewing skills, where the children had to find out two facts and a lie. The rest of the class participated, using investigative skills to work out the lie.
Just before the lunchtime, the children started to research into Fake News, and the reasons for their views. This led us to sum-up the day with understanding more about news articles, how news is spread and our adventures into article writing.
The articles will be created throughout this academic year.
