On Thursday night, CHJS Mini Police had the honour of attending and speaking at the High Sheriff Awards held at Wynyard Hall. In front of an audience of over 150 guests, Alex, Dylan, Harley and Harvie shared their experience of being in the Mini Police on the stage whilst other members greeted guests, handed out badges and formed a guard of honour for the High Sheriff of Durham, Caroline Peacock and the Lord Lieutenant, Sue Snowdon.
As part of our Light and Shadows Science topic, 3H went outside to investigate changes to their shadow throughout the day. We found out that the shadow of an object changes when the distance from the light source changes. It was interesting to see our shadow change throughout the day.
During a Numbers Count session, the children learnt how to partition a three-digit number using place value cards. Using their knowledge of hundreds, tens and ones, they played a game with the place value cards. Well done to all.
On Thursday, 4C went to King James to start work on some art that will eventually become part of an exhibition. We looked at collage and then made some collage pictures of our own. We had a fantastic time are are looking forward to going back next week to complete our work.
This week, Mrs Stevens came to 4H to teach us all about her visit to Nepal with Miss Trow. We started our lesson by working in groups and looking at a range of photographs, writing what we noticed about them and any questions we had. We showed that we are very inquisitive in 4H and asked some fantastic questions, thinking carefully about how life in Nepal is different to life in the UK. We discussed these questions and discovered lots of new things. Thank you for sharing with us Mrs Stevens!
The whole school were in PJs for the day to celebrate World Book Day, each child also brought their favourite book into school to share with their peers. What an amazing day!
Cockton Hill Junior School won the Year 3 and 4 Bishop Auckland School Football League at the Alun Armstrong centre. They finished with 36 out of 42 points, winning 12 out of 14 games. Well done to all of you, CHJ are very proud of you!
To celebrate World Book Day, we decided to share our favourite books with our friends. We talked about the books and what was good about them. We then worked in groups to complete a ‘Reading Scavenger Hunt’ where we used our books to hunt for different details such as character descriptions and key words we have been spelling. Great detective work 4H!
The children were asked to walk and move around like a cave man. This led to them working with a partner then into groups to create a sequence which included turns, travelling and pouncing resembling being hunted and gatherers. Each group showed their sequence to the class. so much fun was had by all!
This week in PE, 4H have been developing passing and receiving skills in hockey. We worked in pairs and small groups to practise the correct hold of the hockey stick and to make sure we could make controlled passes of the ball. We are beginning to show some super hockey skills!
