A Busy Week Ahead

It may be the last week of the academic year but there's no winding down at Seaburn Dene! In actual fact it's one of the busiest weeks of the year. But, as we head towards the six week break, we can look back on a year full of challenge, activity and new ideas and projects. Thank you to each and every one of our families for their continuing support, turning up to assemblies, Parents Evenings and special occasions and supporting children with their work at home. 


Year 6 Presentation Afternoon-Tuesday

On Tuesday afternoon guests will be delighted to see what is always an emotional presentation designed by Mrs Wilson and  our leavers in Year 6, followed by a formal presentation by the teachers then a high tea created by Gillian. Last year it was absolutely scrumptious! This event is a ticketed event and no one without a ticket will be allowed to attend. Younger siblings will be welcomed free of charge into the school Tea Club. Usually this very special occasion closes at around 5.30pm. We look forward to seeing the families of Year 6 on Tuesday at 2.30pm.



Yesterday I had a wonderful day, spending time in every classroom to see what children are learning in their island project. I saw everything from making contour maps to a forensic investigation. Everywhere, children were very excited in their learning so we would like to bring this altogether with our Showcase event. The last showcase was so well attended that there wasn't room to move so, this year, we've split it into 2 sessions. The Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 takes place between 1.30 and 2.30pm and Key Stage 2 from 2.30pm to 3.20pm. Parents may take a look in classrooms other than their own child's too. 


Year 6 Leavers' Meal and Disco

It's best outfits on for the Year 6 celebration meal at Bellini's followed by a disco in the hall. Our resident DJ Dr. Cool Smith will be playing the tracks children select so it'll be the hottest venue in town!


Friday 21st July is the last day of term. Children return to school on Wednesday 6th September.


Summer Holiday Project

Throughout the whole school, from Reception to Year 6, children will have a book (or in the case of Year 5 a collection of poems) to read during the school holidays. Inspired by their reading, we are challenging children to tap into their creativity and research skills to create a wonderful scrap book based on their book. They may think about including features such as their own

  • maps,
  • fashion design
  • research about animals featured in their book
  • cartoons or illustrations
  • casting the film of the book
  • story board

The list is endless and there's no reason why children shouldn't make models too. All entries need to be in by Monday 11th September for judging. There will be a class prize and also whole school prizes but best of all is the enjoyment you will all get from the project. The school is providing scrapbooks for everyone so, I'm sure, many of you will be working as a family...I only wish I could make one too!
