Well, everyone seems to have settled into their new classes really well. In particular our Early Years children have been fantastic getting to know Miss Hemmingway. They are really independent and enjoying all the activities provided for them outside in this lovely weather. I enjoyed the bubble machine last week.
Welcome back to Miss Herriot into Year 5/6 with Mrs Calvert. Now that everyone has returned from Robinwood the hard work will begin. I was impressed with the strength and sense of adventure our Year 5/6 children showed when attempting the outdoor activities on their trip.
Last year’s reception children were really ready for their move into Year 1 with our new Year 2 children. As you would expect Mrs Telfer has them settled safely, ready to go on their first trip this Friday to learn about the Great Fire of Gateshead…which they will be comparing to the Great Fire of London.
Our Year 3/4 have been showing Mrs Fawcett-Smith how good they are. Every time I ‘pop’ in they are always working really hard.
So I have no concerns about our children returning to school after their break, and I hope you don’t either. Please contact me if you do.
Our Chair of Governors, Mrs Bainbridge, has been into school to say how many people have stopped her to say how smart our children look in their new uniforms. Well done everyone. I think they look fantastic too.
What a great start to our new year.
