Welcome back everyone. With the promise of fabulous weather this week, it bodes well for the Summer term with all it entails-Sports Day, Bikewise, Year 6 Derwent Hill residential and the Tall Ships festival to name just a few. We can't wait to get started!
This week our focus throughout the school is on being prepared to avoid and deal with emergencies and what to do if you find yourself in an emergency situation. The services within our community including Nexus travel are all being very supportive, coming into school and working with individual classses. PC Wilson and paramedic Rob Houston will also be running workshops so we thank them for their time. Did you know that Japanese children regularly have earthquake drills in school?
Congratulations to our tennis players for becoming Monkwearmouth Cluster Champions. Although tennis is not one of our prominent Winter sports, the team played magnificently to come away with yet another trophy for our cabinet.
Congratulations to our hockey players who qualified for the regional finals. They tried really hard, exhibited fantastic skills but were unfortunate not to come away with the trophy.
This week Year 4 are performing at the Skipping Festival and Year 5 start their rehearsals for the Magic Weekend performance.
