Northumbria in Bloom 2013 “Growing together” | December 10, 2013

Eco and Gardening club along with the help of Mrs Todd, Mrs Atkinson and Miss Halliday assessed whole school grounds with the aim to continue to keep our school at a high standard of cleanliness and well designed garden areas. The children from the whole school then carried out the required tasks.

Nursery Christmas Production | December 6, 2013

As a multicultural school we celebrate all faiths and Religions. To take advantage of this we held a Christmas production in nursery. The children all dressed up as a character from the Nativity Story and performed and sang for all their Mums, Dads and families.

Not only was it an immensely enjoyable day, the children also gained experience and confidence in role playing and the recall of stories.
