🎄 LIGHThouse – Issue 15 – 10/12/2020 click image below:
Each year we join the nation to support Children in Need, and this year was no different!
We had a wonderful day celebrating all things Pudsey, while raising money for a very worthy cause.
Here are some of the things we got up to within our class groups

Prudhoe Class have had a fun Pudsey themed week.
Warkworth Class made two fantastic giant Pudsey heads this week.
A sensory Pudsey went down a treat on Friday! The children all loved exploring the textures and of course, getting messy!
Alnwick Class continued with their work on the Zones of Regulation…..but with a Pudsey twist!

They also had a fun afternoon playing Pudsey bingo….and then a well deserved rest before home time.
Berwick Class enjoyed decorating biscuits with Pudsey spots and having a singalong and a dance together.
Berwick Class also worked together to make a giant Pudsey head (complete with mask!)
Norham Class made Pudsey faces and also joined in with the 24 hour PE lesson with Joe Wicks.
Berwick Class have been working really hard this half term learning about The Vikings during My World lessons. They started off by thinking about objects from the past, and then they found out all about Viking/Celtic warriors.
They all learnt something new, such as the blue paint the warriors painted their bodies in is called woad (blue natural dye, used by the Celts) and trousers are called bracae. Everyone really enjoyed making a Celtic shield.
Then last week, the whole class designed a Celtic roundhouse together using a very large box that Jen brought in from home (recycling!). Everyone had great fun getting inside the box.

This week the class worked together to add a door and roof (but no windows, as roundhouses did not windows)
Jen said “We made sure that the roof could be removed so that we could check that our children did not fall asleep in the roundhouse!” (Harrison thought it was the perfect place for a little nap….he lay down and said “Good Night”)
Well done Berwick Class!
In ‘My Communication’ Norham Class have made their way through Roald Dahl’s The Twits. From beards full of food, worms in spaghetti and drinks with glass eyes (picked onions!!) to creating upside down houses, making bird pies and practising walking with an ever-growing walking stick, the students following the Semi Formal Pathway have experienced it all.
Clearly inspired, Norham Class students have even started playing tricks on the staff, a demonstration of how much the students have enjoyed and engaged with this wonderfully funny story.
Information regarding the start of term.
As we finish a very different year in school, some things are still the same – children moving from primary to secondary, and some students leaving school as they move towards adulthood.
Although we cannot celebrate together in person this year, we have prepared a virtual experience for you to share in some of the wonderful things our children and young people have done during their time with us.

We wish you all the very best in your new adventures.
Have a great summer!
During our final staff meeting (outside this year!), we spoke about how much we are looking forward to seeing you all in September. The home learning and all the activities you have been doing have been outstanding! Words cannot express how immensely proud we are of you all – so we are showing our appreciation to each and every one of you through our very own ‘Clap for Castle’
Also, we just want to let you know how grateful we are for all of your photos – so PLEASE do keep sending them! However, you may see a slight delay in photos appearing in our Twitter feed as our Castle Tweeter takes a bit of a break over the summer time.
If you are taking a bit of a break yourself, you could think about sending a ‘photo(s) of the week’?
During the holiday period, rather than sending photos to class emails, please feel free to send them to
