After a very successful school fair last Friday (we raised over £1,000) we have enjoyed a fun-filled week at Northstead. It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome parents and carers into our school to enjoy our EYFS, Y1 and Y2 performances recently. The children and staff have worked incredibly hard to put the shows together and I have been so impressed by every show I have had the pleasure of watching. Christmas lunch today was a lovely festive treat for school and enjoyed by all.

Stay and Learn Sessions
Many thanks to all of our parent and carers who braved the cold, wind, ice and snow to attend our stay and learn sessions over the last few weeks. We hope you enjoyed learning alongside your children.
In 6PL, parents took part in a real year 6 maths lesson, where they had a go at completing a Magi-Mixer challenge and a retrieval grid. We looked at long multiplication and division and it was definitely a great way to show the adults in the class the expectations for the end of Y6.
Year 3 loved inviting the parents into class 3RW this week for their stay and learn. They enjoyed sharing their learning about multiplication. Some children showed off their speedy recall of multiplication facts, either on TT Rockstars, or with a times table check challenge. It was great to see some children representing times tables by drawing and making arrays, skip counting or repeated addition. Creativity and resilience was shown when making times table fortune tellers to practise recalling multiplication facts! Finally, children showed how they can use their learnt knowledge to solve multiplication and division word problems! Wow! Well done Team 3RW (Parents too!)
Year 2 Trip to Ebenezer Baptist Church
Year 2 enjoyed a trip to Ebenezer Baptist Church for a Christmas Labyrinth Experience, provided by Faith in Scarborough schools. The nativity was brought to life via an interactive journey around a Labyrinth, meeting different characters from the story along the way.
