Well done Alisha
Dog Show Winner
Well done to Alisha who competed in a Dog Show Competition in Wales over the weekend with her well-trained, four-legged companion Misty.
In her first heat, Alisha and Misty had to enter the dog ring and stand still as the judges examined the posture of Misty: FIRST place to Misty and Alisha.
They qualified for the Championship round, in which they had to perform a lap around the show ring: a fabulous effort and SECOND place overall for the unbelievable Misty and Alisha.
The Headteacher’s Award recognises good work and behaviour, positive attitudes to learning, kindness and consideration towards others and improvements in all areas of learning. Class teachers choose children to be presented with the award in our ‘Celebration Assembly’.

What a fantastic night we had at the Halloween Disco! We had so much fun dancing, playing games and getting dressed up with our friends! It was so lovely to see the community spirit afterwards too seeing all of the families out ‘Trick or Treating’ together 🙂
The Rights Respecting School have written to our local MP Kevan Jones, expressing our concern about the road safety around our school. We have had a lovely reply from Mr Jones, who is going to write to Durham County Council about our ideas of making it safer.
We were nominated for our contribution to sport and physical activity within our community.
Well done to our SSOC’s crew who ran a whole school competition. every child took part in our Cross Country event. All children worked hard individually but also to gain points for their team.

Today we had a storyteller work with each class telling different stories that captivated our imaginations and developed our speaking and listening skills!
Class 1 worked with Emma first where she told a wonderful story all about a young warrior preparing for celebrations in Autumn many many years ago.
Class 2 worked to retell the story of Jane and the Ghost and even learned an rhyme of their own at the end.
Throughout the afternoon, Emma worked with the children across Key Stage Two, with a Historical twist added to her wonderful stories!
The children were engaged from start to finish and even our youngest of children in EYFS had the most engaged of faces when listening to the talented tales of Emma Morag! Thank you for such a wonderful day of stories! 🙂
Today, we had an assembly delivered by our local PCSO, James Robson and some of the firefighters from Durham Fire Station educating us all about how to stay safe at this time of year – especially with Bonfire Night being just around the corner.
As a treat for listening and engaging so well throughout the assembly we were able to see a firefighter in full kit, including his oxygen mask – it was funny because when it was on he sounded like Darth Vader! As well as this some children had the opportunity to go and try on mini police uniforms and mini firefighter uniforms!
Thank you very much for a wonderful assembly! 🙂
