House Captains announced.

Yesterday the House Groups elected our House Captains and Vice Captains.

All the teacher were very proud of how eloquently the candidates spoke. They all worked very hard on their speeches.

Well done to all those who took part.

STEM day

On Friday 10th June, the whole school had the opportunity to discover and explore STEM. The children had the opportunity to meet two engineers from Rolls Royce who worked with each class. The children found out lots of fascinating facts about aeroplane engines and had lots of questions for the engineers!

What a day we have had, we started at Infinite Air on the FreeJump course with over 40 trampolines and box sections, we bounced all over the place. We also did the Bag Jump, standing at nearly 3 metres above the podium floor, we looked down on to the huge airbag, and all eyes were on us. We were at the highest point in Infinite Air, looking out over the whole park, waiting to jump! We nearly all did it!

We also had a fantastic day full of challenge at Beamish Wild. We had the opportunity to learn how to manage risk in a controlled environment and overcome our fears with the support of our friends whilst having FUN.

We all attended a safety briefing and practiced our skills on the ground before heading to the treetops. Beamish Wild’s staff were on hand to supervise us at all times, throughout our high ropes experience which were really, really high and scary.

We hope you enjoy our photos as much as we have enjoyed our day.

Advent is here! Let us prepare!

Yesterday was the 1st Sunday of Advent. Today we celebrated this in school. We are preparing for the coming of Jesus and Mrs Butt has asked us to make Our Advent promises – which you will be able to see in entrance corridor.

We will also be taking home our Travelling Cribs each night we would love it if you could set these up and retell the story of the birth of Christ with your children.
