Keeping Cool!

Year 5 have had a ‘cool’ afternoon exploring thermal insulators as they designed and carried out their own experiment to find which material was best to stop an ice cube melting.

There were lots of predictions and hypothesis’ as well as close observations with lots of detailed scientific discussion about what they could see happening.

Early Years Easter Afternoon

Reception and Nursery children thoroughly enjoyed inviting parents and carers into their classroom and spent a lovely afternoon taking part in Easter crafts.

Thank you to everyone who came along and made it such a memorable afternoon.


In Year 2 the children have been developing their drawing and painting skills in Art by focussing on portraits.    They are working particularly hard on their portraits of Queen Elizabeth II.

Amazing Alnwick!

On Monday, the children in Year 2 visited Alnwick Castle after a very busy term learning all about Castles.  They understood more about defending and attacking a castle by having a battle between the Scottish and the English!  Everyone had a fabulous day.

Hatching chicks


On Monday, the boys and girls in Early Years had a delivery of chick eggs. By Friday, seven healthy chicks had hatched out. The children have absolutely LOVED watching nature in action! We cannot wait until next week when they will be old enough for us to hold.

Exploring Negative Space in Art!

Year 6 have been exploring negative space in art through exploration of Nōtan. Nōtan is a Japanese design concept involving the play and placement of light and dark elements as they are placed next to the other in the composition of art and imagery.

Christmas Greetings from France

Year 6 created some Christmas messages for their pen pals at La Salle School in Amiens in France on coloured paper strips so that the French pupils could make some paper chains. We were delighted to receive some back and enjoyed reading and translating these festive greetings!

Joyeux Noel!

Early Years Welly Walk

The children in Early Years really enjoyed their sponsored Welly Walk from School to Hadrian’s Wall. There were lots of opportunities to test out their wellies in muddy puddles! Together you and the children have raised an amazing £842.80 which will be spent on buying additional outdoor equipment for Early Years.

Christmas Jumper Day!

Everyone enjoyed wearing their Christmas jumpers in School. The bright colours and designs really brightened up everyone’s day! We are pleased to let you know that we have raised £144 which will be donated to Save the Children and be used to help children where it is needed.

Staying Safe Online

We are aware that during lockdown and over the summer some children have spent a lot of time online.

We would like to share a number of ‘What parents need to know leaflets’ about a variety of the games and social media platforms which the children may be accessing.

These leaflets are produced by National Online Safety and aim to inform parents about the platforms, any risks and practical steps to help the children stay safe.

Hopefully these guides will support you in having conversations with your children about thieir online activity.
