Thank you to Cllrs Grant and Susan Davey for coming into school to hand out special medals for the Queen’s jubilee. The medals were donated by Blyth county council. The children were very excited to receive them. We even had a special guest driving the train. We would also like to thank Blyth council for funding our Jubilee party at school. We all had a great time.
Huge congratulations to our new Rebound Therapy team. Everyone passed the 2 day course this week, meaning we have an opportunity to roll out this great therapy to even more of our Dales children. Our team will create bespoke pupil profiles, engage children in sensory regulation and enjoy intensive interaction sessions amongst a lot of fun.
Well done our bouncing buddies. We look forward to regular online updates to see our new, improved school Therapy offer.
This week in outdoor learning we have looked at Eric Carl and his amazing art work. We read his book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We then went on to design and make our own butterfly, looking at symmetry and even made our own Eric Carl art work. In the Garden we explored insects and bugs under a microscope.
The Erasmus team at the Dales school welcomed our partners from Italy, France, Belgium and Spain last week.
The Team spent their first day looking around both sites and exploring our new train in our yard. In the afternoon the partners went on visits around the local area. They visited Alnwick and went to the castle and learnt to fly on their Harry Potter broomsticks. This was a huge success and the partners couldn’t believe they learned to fly, as they thought this to be impossible. On another visit, they went to Beamish, and again they were blown away with the museum and all it had to offer. After all the fun it was time for business and the partners linked up with different classes around the school to see what we offer. They were so taken aback by all the work we do for our children that they stated it was a life changing way of looking at education. The project is a Maths based topic but The Dales School take a different look at maths and try to incorporate it into all aspects of the curriculum.
