Our school ended our Health, Fitness and Activity week with a day filled with active skipping! Well done to all the children and staff who did some fantastic skipping and showed how being active and keeping fit can be so much fun! It was lovely to see everyone taking part in our final skipping ‘show case’ on the school yard at the end of the day.
Well…. the children were certainly busy today learning lots of new Zumba moves! After several workshops in the school hall the children showed off their newly learnt dancing skills on the yard with a spectacular ‘Whole School’ Zumba dance performance! Thank you Stephanie for all your hard work in teaching the children all the dance moves and keeping them active throughout the day. Check out our ZUMBA video in the ‘Whole School Events’ Section of the website!
On Wednesday, as part of our Health,Fitness and Activity week the children enjoyed taking part in a number of skipping workshops throughout the day. Despite having to skip indoors, because of the rainy weather, the children still had a fantastic time and certainly showed what good skippers they are!
Due to the varying coastal tide times at Seaham and to minimise any safety risks we have changed the date of our school beach visit which was planned for Monday 11th July. The new date will be the following week – Monday 18th July (10am – 2pm). This new date will mean our visit to the beach will not clash with any high tide. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. I do hope you are able to join us on the day to enjoy the sand, sea, ice cream and sunshine (fingers crossed!)
Mr L J Duncan (Headteacher)
As part of our Health, Fitness and Activity week the children carried out a fun sports carousel at school. There were lots of sporting skills and activities taking place with lots of budding future Olympians showing off their skills! Well done to Year 5 who spent the day representing our school in a local ‘Kwik Cricket’ competition.
The children had a fabulous day during our school Sports Day. The day was filled with lots of exciting races, fun events and plenty of exercise for the children. Thank you to all parents who attended and in particular those who were brave enough to compete in the parent races! A big thank you also to New Seaham Harbour Cricket Club for allowing us to use their fabulous grounds for the day. Pictures from the day can be seen in our ‘Whole School Events’ section of the website.
Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic day at the Diocesan Youth Village with other Year 6 pupils. The day was filled with prayer, dance and song. Everyone had a fantastic time.
Our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children held fabulous E-Safety assemblies in school. The message to stay safe whilst online certainly hit home. Thank you to all the parents who attended and to Pauline Stewart from DCC who held separate talks with parents on E-safety issues. There will be further information sent out to parents on the issue of E-Safety. Feel free to pick up an E-safety leaflet from the school reception area. You can also update your E-safety knowledge by visiting the E-safety page on our school website.
Our school had a visit from a real life artist today who worked with the children exploring different forms of art. Jane McCraken is a professional artist who has produced many exciting and commercial art pieces. Having given an assembly to the children, Jane then went on to work with classes to produce their own works of art! All the children had a fabulous day and certainly learnt lots of new artistic skills.
The children were certainly kept on their toes when Freddy Fit visited our school. All classes had the opportunity to join in with some exciting sporting activities and to show off their fitness skills. The day was a great warm up for our ‘Health and Fitness’ week which begins in school on the 27th June!
