Sacriston Academy art

A big shout out to our nursery children, 

You have amazed us all with the work you have been doing from home! From making playdough animals to searching for trolls in the woods, planting and growing seeds to practising your writing skills, we think you are all Sacriston Stars!

Our topic for the final half of the Summer term is 'Once Upon a Time'. Your home tasks will be based around traditional tales such as 'The Magic Porridge Pot', 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'The Billy Goat's Gruff'. These are all stories that have been told for many years and are always well-loved. 

Please keep sending your fabulous work to us on Class Dojo so not only we can see it but all of your friends too. This is an unusual time but we have been very touched by your positive thoughts, comments and feedback and are simply blown away by the work you have all produced.

Keep smiling our little Sacriston Stars, Your smile brightens up the world!

Take care and stay safe, 

From Mrs Parks and Mrs Cossey.

Calming bedtime story from CBeebies 

We know it is a very unusual time for us all at the moment that may make us feel worried or anxious. It is important we share our worries, if you have any, talking about them with people you care about can help. You can read a story about a girl who learns that she is not the only person with a worry here
