We are thrilled to announce that in our recent Infant School Ofsted inspection we were judged to be OUTSTANDING in all areas! A huge thank you to our entire school and wider community!
Please take your time to have a look at our Ofsted Report and letter from Mr Conway and Mr Watson regarding our outstanding result.
Just a reminder of the Carmel Teacher Training Partnership Marketing Event event on Thursday 14th March 2019, 4:30pm – 7:00 pm at Durham Town Hall in the centre of Durham (in the market square). We have the venue from 4pm- 7pm to ensure we all have time to set up.
This week Year 6 visited the Victoria Tunnel in Ouseburn, Newcastle. The tunnel was used as an air raid shelter in World War II. We also had the chance to meet a veteran who spoke to us about what it was like as an evacuee. We learnt about rationing, gas masks, national identity cards and the different ways that people could stay hidden during the black outs.
On Thursday 28th February, Reception will be holding a maths cafe for all parents and carers to feel free to come along to. It will look at ways to support your child with their maths at home.
If you would like to come and join us, please call into our school office to sign up for the session.
Thank you for all of your continual support.
On Friday, Year Two had a lovely celebration of the work which is carried out in maths! The school hall was set up with a range of activities to cover the objectives which the children cover within the maths curriculum. There were lots of practical activities for the children to engage in with their parents, grandparents or carers! It was lovely to see such a HUGE turn out and we would like to say a massive thank you to all parents and carers who attended! We are very grateful for everything you do to support your children with their learning.
Last week, Year 5 continued their fantastic science exploring materials. They made a series of predictions to test which of seven materials dissolved in water. They recorded their results in a table and some people were surprised at the results. They then used this to go on to explore reversible/ irreversible changes and explored how different materials change in our world. We can’t wait to start our new topic Earth and Space after half term.

Both Reception classes had so much fun celebrating Chinese New Year on Friday. They had a huge parade and celebrated by dancing with the Chinese Dragon!
