This week we invited parents from Nursery up to Year 6 to experience our reading event. Held over 4 days, we showed parents how children in every year group are taught phonics and reading. We have had such positive feedback and would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who attended and participated in our first parent event: we look forward to running others in the future.
Well done to our Stars of the Week this week!
This morning, Year 4 participated in a Guinness World Record attempt for the ‘Most Viewers of a Rolling Numbers Livestream’ in conjunction with Times Tables Rock Stars!
We joined in with the dance moves, chanted along with the tables and crossed our fingers that we would be record holders by the end…which we were!
The record was smashed, with over 5,000 viewers taking part across the country.
Here is our certificate!
Today, we visited Durham Cathedral as part of our RE curriculum exploring places of significance in the North East. We had a great day and learned lots about the Venerable Bede and St. Cuthbert! We saw Bede’s tomb and St. Cuthbert’s shrine – we even got to try on costumes and act out the story of St. Cuthbert’s life.
Congratulations to our Star of the Week winners this week!
The pictures from our visit with Lucy Turner are eventually ready to view! We tried spotty dogs, mountain climbers, push ups and star jumps and it was exhausting! Well done to every single person who took part and tried their hardest. We were extremely proud of everyone!
This week the whole school has celebrated Art Week. Each year group focussed on a different art movement. We each learned about a different art style, some famous artist and create our own piece of fantastic art.

In honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Y4SJ wrote to Her Majesty herself, in order to congratulate her on her 70th anniversary of her Accession to the Throne.
Today, we were delighted to receive a reply!
This morning, Y4SJ took part in a workshop with Seven Stories. During this, the illustrator of The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler, talked us through what life is life as an illustrator and how to make our very own miniature books!
Today we were able to spend our attendance stars from Autumn 2!
We had so much to choose from and enjoyed spending our well earned stars. Did you know we get a star for every full week we have in school? We were able to choose prizes such as; superhero masks, rubbers, zip bracelets, cars and so much more!
We are so excited for the attendance trolley to come around next time but for now, Miss Little has to rest her feet!
