Nurture Reward Trip
As a reward for all the hard work and effort of the boys and girls in Nurture we decided it was time for a special reward. In class we decided that what we needed was a class pet- something we could have ownership of, take care of and nurture. We voted and decided we would get a pet fish. We took the bus to Newcastle to get our pet fish. What a lucky bunch we are; meet Nemo!

The planned building works are progressing well and remain on schedule. It is very pleasing to see the new structures taking shape. Once completed we will have a new front of school, new reception area, office spaces and a purpose-built SEN room. Towards the back of the school there will be a new entrance, security measures and additional CCTV.

BBC Ten Pieces II Project
Key Stage 2 pupils from St. Colmcille’s P.S enjoyed a six week music club which focused on their BBC Ten Pieces II project responding to ‘The Lark Ascending’ composed by Vaughan Williams. After engaging in class activities which explored listening, emotional responses to music and graphic scores, pupils used drawing and sketch apps on ipads to create their own peaceful landscapes. With further development and exploration into Vaughan Williams’ own experiences, pupils suggested looking to our own locality for inspiration. Pupils chose a photograph of the local Quoile countryside park as the feature of their next creative response and used photo editing websites and apps to reflect the tone of the music and the contrast between Vaughan Williams’ experiences. These finished creations have been submitted to BBC Ten Pieces national website to be judged and acknowledged by accomplished musicians and composers.
