Week beginning 18th November 2019
For the early readers of the blog, I thought I would let you know that the Tyne Bar in the Ouseburn Valley are having a Christmas market this weekend and our “Mini Choir” are performing there at 12:30. If you are looking for something to do this weekend, why not pop along.
This has been a busy week in the office. We have been having our first Pupil Progress Meetings of the year with each year team. It is lovely to spend time talking about each pupil and how they have settled in to their new year group. There is clearly lots of great learning happening across the school and our fabulous staff have quickly got to know the children well both academically and socially.
Thanks to everyone who came along to the In the Loop meeting on Tuesday. We had a good discussion and a warming cup of coffee on a particularly cold morning. I hope you all received the letter that came out after the meeting. If not, it is available under Parents\Letters.
Thanks also to everyone who sent donations in for the Christmas Fair on Friday. We have had loads and you have been very generous as usual. If you still have donations, then please feel free to send them in next week. The fair is on Friday 6th December from 3:30 – 5pm.
The football team were out again on Thursday evening playing in the league. This week they got two wins and two draws and Mr Gretton reports a real improvement in the team’s play. Well done lads. Keep it up.
We also had a team of athletes out on Friday at the Parallel Sports Hall Athletics competition at The Parks Leisure Centre in North Shields. The team had a fantastic time. The results are not yet in, but I will let you know as soon as we get them. I am hoping to get a photo, which I will add here.
On Thursday evening, Mrs Clougher and I showed around a group of prospective parents for Reception next year. It was lovely to meet them. We have on one more open event this year which takes place on Monday 2nd December at 1:30. If you know anyone who would like to come along, please get them to ring the office and book a place.
