..of our football team for coming third in the County Durham football tournament. Considering the size of our school, with only one class per year group, this is a remarkable achievement. Mr. Traves and Mr. Ashton said the team played well to draw two matches and lose one in the very last minute, but the players were superb role models in the way they took defeat.
...of our Yr 5 and their skills in dancing. Paul, the Dance City teacher, put our school name forward to perform at the Magic Weekend rugby tournament in front of 60,000 rugby fans and television cameras. It's going to be hard work to learn the steps, as 250 children will have to perform the exact same routine together but have only one live rehearsal! This is an event when we'll need to be aspirational and show high levels of resilience and determination.
We're excited about....
The Easter Chocolate Afternoon tea celebration on Tuesday at 3.30pm, the dance demonstration for Year 5 parents on Wednesday at 3.00pm and the Spelling Bee all day on Thursday.
The Year 4 regional hockey tournament taking place this Wednesday. Mr. Wilson, our coach, is thrilled with the progress children have made and believes they will play really well.
The Spelling Bee on Thursday. After the success of the inter-house times table competition, it's time for children who excel in Spelling to shine.
We're back to school on Monday 16th April. During the first week back we're all looking at what we would do in any emergency and Year 4 represent the school at the Skipping Festival.
Throughout the week we will be celebrating the Easter story during assembly time. Today we will hear the sombre story of the Crucifixion, in class assembly tomorrow learn about Easter traditions in other European countries and on Wednesday Mr. Howe's assembly will tell the story of the Resurrection.
