So close…

On Wednesday our school football team took place in a football tournament, the EFL cup, at Silksworth in Sunderland.  Competing against 30 teams from the region, Toner performed brilliantly only conceding one goal in the entire competition.  Unfortunately the one goal was in the final, losing 1-0.

There will be match reports written by the squad to follow, but here is a link to a gallery and overview video.  Toner crops up a fair bit!

A brilliant effort to all the children, and Mr King was especially proud of their sportsmanship!

Year 1’s Christmas Party!

Today was the Year 1 Christmas party.

All of the children looked fabulous in their smart outfits and beautiful dresses!

We had a fantastic time dancing, singing and playing party games.

We were all so surprised when, for the second time this week, Santa Claus came to visit us!

Another super afternoon had by all!

We wish you a very merry Christmas and a relaxing, well deserved rest over the holidays.

Last Day of term

Just a reminder that we close at 1pm on Friday 22nd December.  Please collect your children from the usual points.

The children return to school on Tuesday 9th January.

A massive thank you for all your support this term and to those of you that came in such large numbers to the carol concert at St John’s church.

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Mr Arthur.

Merry Christmas from Year 2!

Year 2 had a fantastic time at their party yesterday! We had lots of dancing, fun and games.

We just wanted to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU! to the children for all of their hard work. Also a big THANK YOU to the parents for their help and support since September.

Have a fantastic time!

Year 1 at The Cock Crow Inn

Today, Year 1 had a delicious Christmas lunch at The Cock Crow Inn!

We all had a scrumptious carvery followed by a pudding of our choice.

After all of that, we were very full!

Suddenly, we heard bells ringing and in came a special visitor… Santa Claus! He gave us all a present for us to open on Christmas Day.

A fantastic afternoon was had by all!

A huge thank you to everyone at The Cock Crow Inn for having us!

Y1SJ and Y1HS
