Friday Bulletin – 23rd March 2018

23 March 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 3 made us all extremely proud this week with their outstanding performance at Sage Gateshead as part of the annual Gateshead Dance Festival. The children worked so hard in the run up to their performance and really shone on the stage on Tuesday evening. A big thank you to Josh, our dance coach, and to the children for their stunning efforts.

We continued the theme of performing arts with the school orchestra taking part in the Wansbeck Music Festival today. As ever, the children gave an excellent performance and really impressed the judges. Well done to all our musicians, and special thanks to Mrs Slater and all the other parent volunteers who continue to grow the orchestra from strength to strength.

Year 4 have returned from Dukeshouse Wood following their three day adventure. I hope they had a fantastic time. I’m sure the children will have lots of stories to tell on Monday! Thank you to the staff for making the trip so memorable.

Next week is the last week of the spring term. It’s hard to believe we are two thirds of the way through this academic year. There are still lots of special events coming up the summer term. Please see below for important dates for your diary. Please note school finishes on Thursday next week.

Have a great weekend.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
