Welcome to the Central First School website. We hope you have the time to browse around and find out some of the exciting and innovative things we do here at Central.
Class Dojo is in full flight and has been a great success so far. Children are earning points for being kind, completing homework, working hard and taking part. Improvements have been seen in all of these areas and the children are happy that their efforts are being recognised. A huge positive is that Class Dojo is an online resource so parents can log in and track the progress their child is making!
With a hunger for points, the highest levels of returned homework have been recorded. Teachers are thrilled so it is happy, happy, happy all round!
This week, excitement levels have soared further sill with the opening of the Class Dojo shop. Children can exchange their points for fantastic prizes on Friday afternoons. Once children reach specific mile stones they can either cash their points in or save for something they really want!
Digging for Victory
As part of our WW2 topic Y3 have been digging for victory! We planted potatoes, looked after them then harvested them once ready!
Y3 Beamish Trip
Y3 were evacuated to the Beamish farm this term as part of their WW2 topic.
They baked cookies using traditional recepies, helped out around the farm and even took part in a 'blackout'!
As it was near Christmas they also got to meet Father Christmas and feed his reindeer!
Signs of Autumn
Reception went to the park to look for signs of Autumn.
We had a great time kicking the leaves, listening to them crunch and finding leaves of all different colours!
Trip to Bamburgh and Seahouses
As part of our Explorers topic Y2 went on a trip to Bamburgh and Seahouses.
We concentrated on Science and were looking at the different environments and habitats.
We went on a trip to the Farne Islands and saw lots of seals! We worked with the National Trust looking at different sea creatures and talked about the habitats they would live in.
