1.3.17 World Maths Day
Today we have had lots of fun solving maths problems in different classes. The children were in mixed age classes from Year 1 to Year 4 and all worked together to solve a series of maths problems. These included shape problems, addition and subtraction and place value problems.
Each of the 7 problems were solved by the children and great fun was had by all. Tritlington First School joined us for the morning so the children had an opportunity to make some new friends too!
Not to be left out, Early Years had some maths challenges too to complete. Their favourite one was crime scene that had to be investigated in order to solve the crime!
13.12.16 - RVI Shoe Boxes
We have finally sorted, wrapped and labelled all the boxes! Thank you so much for all your generous gifts for the children at the RVI. I'm sure it will make a huge difference to all the children who will be staying in hospital over the Christmas period. Thank you very much!

We would like to say a huge thank you to Carillion who have kindly given up their time to dig MAS a pond at the back of KS2. It is fantastic! FOMAS have also generously donated funds to secure the pond with a grate, which will be constructed on Monday. Here are a few pictures of the pond so far...
90th Celebrations for the Queen
To celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday we planned an afternoon packed full of lots of exciting activities. From making a crown to playing God Save the Queen on the glockenspiel. We invited all the parents in and then had a picnic fit for the Queen, we even had cucumber sandwiches. Thank you for your support, another great afternoon.
On Tuesday, Dr Bike came into school, and if you cycled into school he provided you with a FREE breakfast. We opened our doors from 8.15 am and we were really impressed with how many pupils managed to ride to school. Dr Bike then stayed for the day and serviced everyone's bike. Thank you very much Dr Bike and Carillion! We can't wait for 'Get Off Your Stabilisers Day'.
Science and Engineering Week (14.03.16)
Many exciting experiments and activities are happening during Science Week.
Children have been training like astronauts; analysing photos of different places on earth that have been taken from Space; making hovercrafts and learning all about recycling. This is just some of what has been happening.
We have also had people in from 'Orca' teaching the children all about different whales and dolphins and the need to protect these species. Please take a look at their website for more information:
Children also have some more excitement to come with various experiments on Thursday and Friday this week, taking place with the help of two of our parents (and some colleagues).
World Book Week March 2016
We've had a fantastic week! Every afternoon pupils from Reception to Year 4 have been able to work throughout the school and join in with lots of exciting activities. As part of World Book Week we have also supported Oxfam, and have taken the opportunity to explore issues that enable our pupils to develop the core competencies which allow them to actively engage with the world, and discuss key issues such as climate change and poverty. Throughout the week parents also volunteered to read their favourite stories and on Friday we all dressed up as our favourite story book characters. Well done Morpeth All Saints, another successful week packed full of love, laughter and learning!
At Morpeth All Saints we are all completing the 'Love and Kindness Challenge' for the whole of February! Please follow the link to find out more and see weekly updates of our acts of kindness in school.
To start the day, we explored how and why the Romans attacked Britain. I then set Orange Class a challenge; they had to take on the roles of a Roman. They had to train an army, organise how they would overpower Britain, choose their weapons, their formations and finally decide what they would do when they had secured settlements. Each group then had to present their plans to the class.
We then ventured outside to practise our formations, can you spot the ‘Wedge’ and ‘Tortoise’? Orange Class even took on the role of the Romans, travelling from France and attacking Britain whilst under the control of Emperor Caesar and Claudius.
In the afternoon, we created catapults and Roman roads using food.
Year 3 and 4 are taking part in Virgin Money Grow your £5. We have planned twelve weeks of exciting activities which will support KS2 to develop key life skills and enable them to set up their own business. Over the coming weeks, we will cover: ideas generation, branding, design, market research, profit and project management.
This week French Grey Tales, Relish Publications and Pinny Princess kindly came into school and told KS2 all about their businesses; how they started, what their products are and what they feel makes a successful business.
Thank you very much, we will see you again in the Dragons’ Den in a few weeks.
Thank you very much for all your support with our Story Telling Day! Jim the Story Teller worked with each class throughout the school and left each class enthused and ready to create their own stories. Everyone wrote fantastic stories and we have encouraged everybody to enter Chris Evans' 500 word story competition. We have included the link below too.
This week it was International Week!
Every afternoon the whole school went into the hall; each pupil was checked by security, went through passport control and then boarded a plan and jetted off to another country. Each teacher had a different country and pupils explored traditions from around the world. On Friday, we also had an International Food Tasting event, pupils had the opportunity to taste foods from all around the world, and it was a great success!
We would also like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who ran workshops throughout the week!
