Year 6 Beamish (posted on 05.11.2018)

Year 6 visited Beamish Home Farm to experience what it might have been like as an evacuee during WW2. Some children made carrot cookies using items that would have been rationed while others had to blackout windows in case of an air raid. Everyone had a chance to sit in an Anderson shelter which made us all realise what a difficult time many people had during WW2.

Year 5 at Derwent Hill (posted on 12.10.2018)

Our Year 5 children had a fantastic weekend away at Derwent Hill in the Lake District, tackling all kinds of outdoor challenges from canoeing to rock climbing.

The children took part in a range of individual and team challenges, pushing themselves to achieve their very best.

They plunged into the gorge, paddled across to One Tree Island and climbed the dizzying heights of the Gladiator.

They all had great fun and the staff were very proud of all their achievements.

Outdoor Learning Area (posted on 17.09.2018)

You may have noticed some changes to the area next to the key stage one yard. We’ve been busy all summer and we now have a fabulous outdoor learning area. This area is going to be used for curriculum based activities and for a brand new gardening club which started this week. In gardening club, we’ve already given it a good tidy, planted some daffodils, composted the plantars and fed our new pet worms.  Thank you to anyone who has made a donation to the area so far, all are greatly appreciated. We still required plant pots, children sized tools, gloves and anything else you think suitable.

Our Year 6 pupils were treated to a pizza party on Friday 11th May 2018 to celebrate the end of their KS2 SATs tests.The children have worked really hard and we thought that they deserved a treat!  All of the children were given the opportunity to create their own pizza using a range of ingredients including tomato sauce, cheese, ham, mushrooms and peppers with Ms Offer, Mrs Hughes and Mr Cawley in the Year 6 Hub before they were cooked in the oven. We are really proud of all the hardwork and effort that the children have put in during the weeks leading up to the SATs, and we hope that they enjoyed their treat!


Online Safety - Fortnite: Battle Royale (posted on 15.05.2018)

Recently we have noticed many pupils talking about the game Fortnite: Battle Royale. As with many online games, Fortnite comes with risks to children and young people. The game is PEGI rated at 12+, however there is no proof of age required which can expose younger children to violent content as well as inappropriate comments from older users.  As a school we have had several recent incidents of children bringing arguments into school which have started during their time on this game. We have also had reports of ‘strangers’ having inappropriate conversations with children and children play acting out the violent content.
