If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school office!
Usually at this time of the year our Y6 pupils enjoy a leavers service at Newcastle Cathedral where they celebrate everything they have achieved and look ahead to the future. It is a great opportunity to meet with pupils from other schools and the Diocese felt that it would be a shame for our pupils to miss out completely on this special service due to the pandemic. They have created a service online for our Y6 pupils to enjoy.
For the remaining two weeks of the school year, please explore the websites below to ensure that both parents/carers and children are familiar with their secondary schools expectations and complete any work required by their transition teams. If they have any concerns what so ever regarding their transition, please feel free to contact me via the school office.
Hope everyone is safe and well,

From tomorrow morning, learning packs will be available from the school office to collect any time during the day for children who will not be attending school. They will include: an exercise book, pen, pencil, ruler, rubber, pencil sharpener, protractor and mirror (for work with measuring and drawing angles and symmetry in math). If you are unable to get to the school, please contact the school office and we will try and arrange a drop off for your pack.
Hope everyone is well and staying safe!
Due to planning and preparations being put in place for children's safe return to school next week, there will unfortunately be a limited amount of work being put on our class page. I will still be placing extracts from The Hobbit on each day starting from tomorrow, as well as some information regarding transitions to secondary school to help the children in their progression to secondary education. If you have any questions relating to any of the above, please feel free to contact the school office and I will get back to you as soon as possible!
Hope everyone is safe and I look forward to seeing some of you next week!
