This week is a 3 day week for all our pupils, although teachers will be busy improving their own skills on Thursday and Friday. Our training day themes are science and children writing. Throughout the school, classes will be busy designing and making as it is this term's first Design and Technology week. Thank you to everyone who responded to teachers' requests for items from home such as bottles and boxes.
Several children will be representing the school on Wednesday at the Schools' Engineering Challenge. This group of Year 5 "engineers" has worked with two volunteers after school for several weeks to create complex Meccano models so we wish them good luck and a happy day at Shildon NRM. You can view some of the models in the photographs below.
And a hint for Father Christmas-I hear that our "engineers" have been totally engrossed in the challenge so, a Meccano kit may be an ideal Christmas present.
Almost as soon as we return to school, we have our first of this term's two parents' evenings. If you haven't received the form, they were sent out last week. You can access them on this website by clicking the link here. Please return your appointment preference asap.
