Year One Visit Tweddle’s Farm – 5.12.17

Year One – Children in Need Fun – 17.11.18

Year 1 had a fantastic day raising money for Children in Need. We wore our pyjamas and had a copper trail right around school. We had so much fun but more importantly we raised lots of money for children who aren’t as lucky as us.


Oliver enjoys Sports Camp!

Oliver has spent his first two weeks of his holidays at the Royal Grammar School in Jesmond at sports camp, taking part in swimming, trampoline, football, netball, athletics, handball, unihock, hockey, gymnastics, running, table tennis, tennis and table sports!! He’s loved every minute and wanted to do the whole 6weeks of it!
We picked up a free running guide yesterday and opened it up to find Oliver in the middle of it!(last photo 2nd from left!) thought we’d share it with you.

Next week he’s off to the caravan for two weeks near Bamburgh.


Reception’s Indoor Picnic – 29.6.17

Reception were really looking forward to their river walk today however the weather had other ideas.  We didn’t however let this ruin our fun.  We have had a great day in class and at lunchtime we worked together to make a den to have our picnic in.


Reception have had a fantastic morning this morning creating lots of food for our Spider Sandwiches picnic!  We made Crawling Caterpillar Sandwiches, Worm Pasta Surprise, Creeping Caterpillar Kebabs, Spider Crunch Cake and a Minibeast Smoothie.  We are looking forward to having our picnic outside this afternoon!

Reception Nativity – Oops a Daisy Angel

We were very proud of all of our Reception children on Thursday 15th of December for performing their nativity of Oops a Daisy Angel in St Oswald’s Church.  Considering the children are only four and five years old they did amazingly well.  A big well done to the Reception staff too.
