Reception Class Assembly

Reception children performed a wonderful class assembly on their topic 'People who help us in the community'. 

A visit to Sunderland Empire

Year 6 enjoyed a real treat after finishing their Sats tests.  The children were taken to Sunderland Empire to see a performance of 'Gangsta Granny'. They all thoroughly enjoyed the visit especially when Miss Kitchen got chosen from the audience to show off her dancing skills on stage! The children were a real credit to the school. 


We are looking forward to the many visits and events planned for our International week which will commence Monday 22nd May.  The school menu will be changed for the week to give children the opportunity to sample different foods from various different countries.
