This Week's News


January 18th 2019

The cold snap has finally arrived! Please encourage your children to wear hats, gloves and coats with names in while it is here.

On Monday, we welcomed two Initial Teacher Trainers, Miss Austwick and Miss Danny, who will be working with us for the next few weeks, mainly in Year 6.

On Monday, Year 4 visited the Great North Museum to support their learning about Ancient Egypt. Mr Ramsey was very impressed with the children’s behaviour, manners and enthusiasm. Well done, Year 4!

On Tuesday, the author, Lisa Thompson, visited and made a presentation to Years 4, 5 and 6. The children had the opportunity to buy signed copies of her books afterwards.

On Thursday, we had our Pizza Party lunch, which was very well attended and well received by the children, several of whom received golden tickets in their envelopes and won prizes. Also on Thursday, Ms Donnelly took a group of children to a sports event at Percy Hedley School in North Tyneside. The children were amazing and they loved the unusual sporting events they had taken part in, so much so that we are now looking to see if we can buy some of the equipment to use in our school.

Please help us by continuing to support our attendance initiatives. Your support was amazing last term but there was a dip towards the end of December. This has continued so we now need to try our best to get above 98%, which would be fantastic! Whole school attendance last week was only 96.28%. Year 1 were the best attenders with 98.333%. Since September, whole school attendance has dipped to 97.72%, so we need to work hard to get it back to above 98%!
