Lovely visit to library
On Thursday 5 March all of Carr Junior went on a lovely trip to the library in Acomb.
Last Thursday we went on a lovely trip to the Acomb library. The first year group to go was year 3 then years 4 and 5, finally year 6. On the trip we listened to a story called BFG by Roald Dahl and we completed a quick quiz while the other half of the group went to the adult library.
It inspired us to read more.

Destroyed by storm Doris!
In the half term break the destructive storm Doris broke our school shed with all the school chicken supplies in.
At Carr Junior School in the holidays the shed with all the chicken supplies in was sadly blown down by storm Doris and her strong winds. When the teachers saw the shed blown down they felt devastated.
The school is getting a new shed.

As you know Carr Junior has chickens, and lately they have been laying eggs this means we might be able to have omelets in lunch for hot-dinners.
Mrs Stephenson is delighted to tell the school the chickens have started to lay EGGS! One of the eggs was found by Katie Innes and Katie Pearson. Katie I says “The egg was sort of warm and it was also pale”
Mrs Stephenson was very happy and showed the staffroom, she says “The chickens don’t tend to lay in colder weather”.

Year 4 took a trip to Murton Park on Wednesday 1st March and Thursday 2nd March to learn how the Vikings lived and how it felt to be a Viking.
While there we did some gardening, made some pottery and we also fought against a Saxon invader. We had a banquet for lunch we had a lot of fun and enjoyed being a viking.
As a result of our trip year 4 got their Viking topic off to a vicious start!
