September and October Update

There is never a dull moment in school! As well as all of the hard work our children do in their classes, we often have special events or visitors, and this helps to maintain an interesting, lively environment. Here are just some of the highlights so far.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We had a fantastic turn out for our annual Macmillan Coffee morning. Thank you to everyone who donated cakes and to everyone who attended in support of our event. A special thanks to all of the people who entered our baking competition; it was so difficult for the School Council and one of our Governors to choose the winner, but I'm sure they enjoyed tasting all the wonderful cakes! More importantly, we raised £164 for this incredible cause!


We are so pleased that some of our children had the opportunity to work with an artist to produce an installation for Durham's famous Lumiere Festival. The children cut plastic bottles into spirals and coloured them with felt pens to make vibrant sculptures that will look amazing when light shines through them at the festival. The sculptures will be beautiful, but they are also meant to remind us about the impact single use plastics have on our environment. The people who organise Lumiere will send us information about where our sculpture will be displayed and we will pass this information to parents and carers. We can't wait to see them in Durham between 14th and 17th of November 2019.

Democracy in School

We have held our elections for our new School Council. Children from each year group who were interested in becoming a School Councillor made a speech to their classmates to show that they understood what it meant to be a Councillor and giving reasons why they thought that they would be the right person to choose. School then held a Polling Day, with a booth set up in the school hall to ensure privacy so that our votes were secret - just like when grown ups vote in local and national government elections. 

Have a look at our School Council page to see who was voted into our School Council.
