Please look out for a letter which will be going home tonight giving information about our Sports Day on Wednesday, 19th June. There is a slip attached which needs to be completed by ALL parents, whether your child is school meals or packed lunches, to let us know whether they will be having a family picnic lunch on the field or not. It is important that we know which children are staying in school so that our brilliant kitchen staff can order the appropriate lunches for them and we have appropriate members of staff to supervise them during the lunch break. This is always a wonderful day and we want it to go as smoothly as possible, so we would appreciate a quick response from you.
Derwent Hill- After half term many of our Year 6 class are spending Monday to Friday experiencing the many adventurous activities at Sunderland's Derwent Hill Education Centre. Whether canoeing, hill walking or climbing, the days are full of energetic tasks and team problems to solve. This will be an amazing experience for all those concerned and we will be preparing the children for the residential beforehand. Watch this space.
Sporting success: Well done to our Football and rugby teams. Our football team sit top of their league following a 3-2 win over St John Bosco RC Primary last week and are awaiting the results of other games to confirm whether we have, in fact, won the league again. Our Y5 tag rugby team went undefeated in the Monkwearmouth Cluster Competition and lifted the trophy - for the third year running - after defeating Redby Academy in the final. Well done to everyone concerned. The final included a haul of ten tries and the performance has contributed to SDPS climbing up the school sports cluster rankings.
The Different Faces of Britain- two fantastic assemblies really brought together what it means to be British this week. Yr 4 based theirs on the story of Stephen Lawrence, while Yr 1 - among other things - looked at our Royal Family through the ages. The messages couldn't have been more different, but equally important.
Year 6 The Year 6 SATs are finally over so we can all get back to business as normal. Congratulations to our Year 6 for their fantastic attitude, resilience and focus last week-we are proud of their efforts. Now we look forward to their Yr 6 production, scripts go out today.
