Last week's absence doesn't appear as good as the week prior with Class 4 showing as red, below 92% and Class 1 and 2 showing as amber, below 96%. Although we had more people absent last week compared to the previous week, we have two classes reaching 100% attendance, well done to classes 5 and 8! We are aware that some absences are due to appointments and illness and we ask if you could continue your cooperation with the school office and inform us if your child is unwell or does have any appointments so we have evidence of why your child is or has been absent.
Keep following our absence updates to find out the next 100% attendance reward for the pupils that have attended school every day for an entire term!
On February 2nd, Class 6, 7 and 8 went to Beamish. We were all very excited!
Two big coaches came to school and we all left together. When we arrived we found there were lots of lovey things to see and do…
We split up into our various classes and between us we explored lots including the town area, the old church, school, garage, dentist and not forgetting the old fashioned sweet shop, (yum yum!) We learnt lots about how people used to live and work and we travelled on some old fashioned trams and buses. The drivers and conductors were very friendly and they took lots of time to talk to us and answer any questions we had. We also went into some very old houses. Did you know that years ago people had toilets in their back yards, not in their houses!?
We jam packed as much as we could into our day and then climbed on the bus to come back to school. Some of us were so tired we fell asleep on the way home! zzzzzz
Back at school we have been writing about our trip and comparing new vehicles to old. We had the most fabulous time and will never forget the fantastic day we all had!
We would greatly appreciate it if you all could take some time to fill out our online parent questionnaire here. This is an opportunity to have your input and opinions on the some of the recent changes we have been making within the school. We value all feedback from parents and will use any suggestions to influence decisions made in the school to better your child’s experience here.
First of all we would like to say a big thank you to all parents/carers and families for the sponsor money that has been raised to ensure we are able to buy outdoor wear for the whole school, this will enable our children to access the outdoor areas in all weathers. All the children had a great time splodging around the field with their classmates whilst doing their sponsored walk. We have had such a huge response from yourselves regarding sponsor money, with the final tremendous amount being £866.08! Well done and thank you to everyone.
