Year 4 Attendance Reward Day

Year 4 have done it! We have the best attendance for this academic year in the whole school. The staff decided to take us for a fun filled day to Hetton Country Park to celebrate our achievement. Some of us had fun playing cricket, football and rounders while others chilled out colouring in and reading in the sun. We enjoyed lunch followed by ice pops then played in the park. Let’s see if any class can beat our attendance next year or will we retain our crown? Well done Year 4; you’re amazing!

We aim to provide a lively, creative curriculum to challenge and motivate our pupils and enable them to participate in a range of high quality learning opportunities. The schools excellent facilities enhance the quality of our children’s education.
