Half Term Round up
Seems like a long time ago since we returned from the Summer break to get back to school, but the children have worked so amazingly hard these past 8 weeks.
It started off brightly with Year 5/6 going to Peat Rigg, since then our children have been playing Tag Rugby in Redcar, gone to Eden Camp to learn about World War 2 and the EYFS children have even been for a walk through the village to explore the changing of the seasons as Autumn rolled in.
To cap it off our choir performed exceptionally at the Choir Festival along with the rest of the children from across the trust.
Last by no means least, we had our Halloween Disco. There were some great costumes on show and everyone had a lot of fun.
We hope everyone has a great week and we look forward to seeing you back on the 6th November.
Year 1/2 Mrs Barron Class Round up
We have been extremely busy in Y1/2 since our last blog.
The children have settled into the classes well and have engaged with all the learning we have done. They have particularly enjoyed our Science topic of “How do animals including humans grow and stay healthy”. As part of the topic we have learnt what we need to survive.
The children investigated what we mean by a healthy diet and we used glitter to show how germs can be spread by touch. We especially enjoyed working scientifically to find out the effects of exercise on the body by trying different activities and counting our heart beats and finding our pulse.
We have always been learning how Middlesbrough has changed over the last 200 years, learning about the development of the Darlington to Stockton Railway and how that helped the development of Middlesbrough from a farmstead to the huge town we know today.
Year 1 have also been planting beans to write instructions as part of our English focus on fairytales. While in Maths we have all been learning 1 more 1 less and 10 more 10 less as well as fractions and shape.
Did you know we do a breakfast club every morning? You can bring your child in, knowing they’ll get a good breakfast before they start school.
This is open to everyone and can be booked in the clubs section on the school gateway app and will continue after half term.
It costs £1.20 for each morning your child attends.
Diary Dates and Reminders
Attendance every day is vital for your child’s progress unless they are too unwell to learn. It is your responsibility to inform the academy if your child is going to be absent by 8.45am each day of their absence. You can contact the office on 01642 453374.
It’s a tie for the last week of half-term….
70 children achieved 100% attendance this week which is outstanding!! 😊
Can you get 100% when we return?
Our lunches are provided on a 3 week rota. When we return it will be Week 1.
On Monday, instead of Carrot Cake the children will have the option of Bonfire Parkin cake instead.

School Uniform and PE days
Please make sure that all items of clothing, including coats and packed lunch bags are clearly labelled with children’s names, so it is easy to find their owners.
All children have been provided with a t-shirt and shorts in a bag for PE lessons but they need to have their own trainers/plimsols in school please. Plimsols will be provided if needed. As the weather is changing, you may want to send in a tracksuit for children to wear outside during PE lessons.
