Look who we’ve been making in school.
On Friday 13th November one of our pupils travelled by train to London for the British Schools Judo Regional Championships.
He had four fights and all four opponents came from all around the country. He was only meant to have two fights and two friendlies because of his weight class but ended up having three fights and one friendly. At the end of the competition he stood on the first place position on the podium to receive his gold medal!
On Friday 13th November we held a non-uniform day to help raise money for Children in Need. We also had our Food for Thought after school club making cakes and biscuits on Thursday night to sell to all pupils on Friday. The total we raised for the charity is £152.30.
In Thursday afternoon, Alice came into our school from OASES. Alice taught us how to make light using recycled bottles. All we had to do was fill a bottle with water, then cut a hole in a ‘cardboard house’ and put the bottle in the hole. She taught us about the litre of light and we created bottle designs for an artist making Durham Cathedral’s Rose Window out of bottles. This is going to be used in Durham’s Lumiere Festival.

With the new half term we have a brand new winter lunch time menu.
Class 3 have been taking part in hockey coaching every Friday this half term. To put their skills into practice, we took two teams, one from year 4 and one from year 5 to Maiden Castle to take part in the Quicksticks Hockey festival. The children played extremely well, losing only 2 of their 8 games. As you can see from the photos, we all had an enjoyable afternoon.
