12th June 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,


Firstly, I would like to wish all of our families who have been observing Ramadan a very Happy Eid al-Fitr at the end of this week.


Following the success of our Royal Wedding picnic, we would like to invite you all to take part in our Summer picnic lunch on Wednesday 20th June. Please see the attached letter for details of this picnic.


School Visits


A number of trips have been taking place this week and some more are to follow. Year 2 have been to Beamish museum, Year 4 are going to Tynemouth, and Reception to the Rising Sun Country Park. A small group from Year 6 have been to a Debating Competition at the Civic Centre and did the school proud. Some of the girls in Year 5 and 6 will be taking part in a WAGS festival at St. John’s Primary School. Newcastle United Foundation will be working with Year 3 families after school on Mondays till the end of term.




As Year 4 have had the best attendance this year, they are being rewarded by being selected to attend one of the two exciting experiences. Half of the Year Group will attend the ‘BIG GIG’ and the other half an ‘In Harmony’ performance at the Sage Gateshead (letters to follow separately). Well done Year 4!




Year 6 children will be taking part in transition events with their new schools throughout July.


P.E. Kit


Finally, can I remind you to ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school every week.
