Queen's Platinum Jubilee
On Friday 27 May we celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in school.  We asked staff and children to dress in red, white and blue.  We shared our learning in our Celebration Assembly and all had a picnic lunch together in the middle garden.  What a lovely day.
Sportivate May 2022
There were some very red faces and puffed cheeks on Wednesday afternoon when the children completed their Sportivate circuits with GB heptathlete Lucy Turner.  What an amazing opportunity to work with an Olympian.  Well done to everyone and thank you to Mrs Lyons for organising the event.
Please can we have all sponsor forms and sponsor money returned to school by add date.  Pictures have been shared on the school website and Facebook page.

Year 4 cycling success
A huge congratulations to our Year 4 children for their fantastic work with Mrs Lyons, Miss Neal and Richard Rothwell from Cycling Generation. Both groups spent a day and a half being taught by Richard and going out on at least one bike ride. Richard provides the bikes and helmets for the children and shares his many years of experience and expertise.
Group 1, the self confessed less confident children, completed a 9 mile bike ride on Wednesday after doing 4 miles on Tuesday afternoon. At least one child in this group progressed from not being able to ride a bike to completing the 9 mile ride. Amazing. 
Group 2, who were more confident, completed a 14 mile ride to Seaton Sluice and back on Thursday. 
Our Year 4 children are now safe and competent riders. What a brilliant achievement. Thank you so much to Richard and of course Mrs Lyons and Miss Neal.
World Book Day secret readers
Can you tell who our secret readers are?
World Book Day Thursday 03 March 2022
Well done to all of our staff and children for making such a fabuolous effort to dress as heroes or superheroes on World Book Day. We have special activities planned to encourage reading throughout the day.
Presentations for parents and carers to support learning at home

Due to the restrictions on large gatherings in school, we were unable to offer our spring term class coffee mornings at the beginning of January.  I really do hope this was the last time we had to cancel these coffee mornings and we will be able to get back to having parents and carers in school very soon.

Teachers usually give out information and guidance at the class coffee mornings to help you to support your child’s learning.  We have put copies of some guidance on our website for you to refer to so you can support your child.  There is guidance for Early Years, maths, reading and handwriting.

Rugby at Seghill Rugby Club
Children in Years 2, 3 and 4 have been enjoying rugby coaching sessions in PE lessons with coaches from Newcastle Falcons and Seghill Rugby Club.  The sessions culminated in a rugby festival at Seghill Rugby Club this week.  Many children have started to attend rugby training at Seghill Rugby Club on Saturday mornings following these sessions.  Please contact Steve at Seghill Rugby Club if you would like any more information about rugby at Seghill Rugby Club.

Use of fundraising money

We are delighted to announce that we have bought some more new sets of story books using money from fundraising. 

The story books will be used in daily phonics lessons in school as a basis for teaching reading across school.  The storybooks provide structured practice for children learning to read.  Each set of books is carefully levelled to match children’s growing phonic knowledge so children can read them with accuracy, fluency and comprehension.

The books cost just over £2500.  These books are in addition to the £3000 worth of reading books that we bought at the end of last year.

Here are Beau, Orla, Bobby and Declan showing just some of the new story books that we have bought.
