Today the School Council have embarked on a mission to help a newly established trust to raise funds. We are supporting the Together Forever Trust. The trust has been set up in memory of Liam Curry and Chloe Rutherford. The aims of the trust are to help children achieve their dreams and reach their full potential in sport and performance. From tomorrow the School Council will be selling wristbands at a cost of £1.00. The bands will also be available from Mrs Hawkins in Y1 after school if any parents would like to pop in and purchase adult or child size wristbands too.
The children are committed to supporting this cause and are very enthusiastic about raising as much as we can to help the trust over the months ahead.
The children from the School Council are designing a poster to advertise the wristbands so watch out for it over the next few days.
Congratulations to our new school buddies 2017-2018
This year our buddies will be very busy organising playground games and termly inter house playground competitions. They will also be there as pupil support at play and lunch times ensuring that friendship is at the centre of our play. Well done buddies I’m looking forward to working with you this year.

Congratulations to Holly Davis (Y4) and Lana McKenzie (Y2) who were winners in their age category for their entries into the North East Special Leaders Award.
Holly’s winning entry was the ‘Tent in a can’. A very imaginative design which allowed for quick assembly of a tent with the added bonus of a button that could be pressed and the tent automatically folded itself back up to fit into the can!
Lana’s winning entry was called the ‘Power-o-matic’. It was a cleverly designed machine that you could step into if you needed a super power for the day or just needed an extra boost for the day!
Well done to all that entered the competition with their fabulous designs!
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.
