We hope you had a great Easter break. School reopens on Tuesday 23 April 2019.
A huge well done to the 36 children from KS2 who took part in the school stage of this annual chess competition throughout the spring term. The highest scorers in each category (14 children in total) have qualified for the regional stage which is known as the Megafinal. This will take place on Saturday 18 May at the Royal Grammar School in Newcastle. We wish them all the best of luck!
We would like to say well done to all the entrants to our Easter egg competition on Friday 5 April. As always the standard was ‘eggstremely’ high! We hope the winners enjoyed their chocolate treats.
Class 2 had a lovely day at Gilside Cottage and Farm on Thursday 4 April. They would like to thank Mrs Gilson for making them feel so welcome.
We would like to thank the NSPCC and Buddy the mascot for visiting us on Wednesday 3 April. They delivered age-appropriate assemblies about staying safe from abuse and neglect to the infants (Class 1 & Class 2) and the juniors (Class 3 & Class 4), followed by a workshop for Class 4. The children were taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or Childline.
Congratulations to our Y5/6 netball team for their performance at Whitworth Park Academy on Tuesday 2 April. They achieved 3rd place and were delighted to receive bronze medals.
Many thanks to Reverend Friswell and Reverend Titterton for visiting us on Tuesday 26 March. They led a range of age-appropriate Easter-related activities for every class which encouraged the children think more deeply about this important time for Christians.
We dressed up as our favourite book characters to celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7 March. See which ones you can spot!
We hope you had a great half-term break. School reopens on Monday 25 February 2019.
