We had a fantastic evening on Monday to celebrate our final week in Year 6. The children were great company and enjoyed playing games and dancing. They are a credit to their parents and we will miss them all very much!
Last week 12 Key Stage 2 children took park in a musical performance called, ‘Footsteps into Paradise’ in Durham Cathedral. The performance was an immersive musical and art experience, celebrating our togetherness as a Trust, enabling the children to explore their identity and spirit of community. Some themes of the show included; respect, belief, reality of war, remembrance, empathy, acceptance, equality and kindness. The children put so much effort into the rehearsals and sang so beautifully on the night.
We had a fantastic day at Lightwater Valley on Friday. The children enjoyed the sunshine and being daredevils on the rides.
Our Year 6 class enjoyed an unexpected visit from an ice-cream van thanks to Vision Education.
Year 6 were over the moon as their hoodies arrived this morning!
KS2 enjoyed an excellent display this morning from Bike 3SIXTY, they saw bike tricks and stunts, learned tips on how to improve their balance when riding and learned about how practice and resilience lead to success!
We had a fantastic time at Emmaus Youth Village. During our time there we learnt different forms of prayer including sign language, singing and dancing.
We spent a lot of time outside with our friends and enjoyed an ice-cream at the local park.
All the children behaved impeccably and were a delight to spend time with!
Year 6 have worked extremely hard this term and we have been very proud of the mature and determined attitude they have shown in their SATs.
The last few weeks of half term were a little more relaxed and we enjoyed some fun activities in class, a trip to the park and our jubilee celebrations.
We’re all now looking forward to next half term which will include our Y6 production Ali Babba and the Bongo Bandits, our leavers assembly and lots of transition activities to prepare us for secondary school.
St Bede’s has joined the fight to end ‘period poverty’ for schoolgirls. Figures show that 48 per cent of UK girls struggle to pay for their sanitary products. Here at St Bede’s we are involved in The Red Box Project; an initiative that quietly ensures that no young woman misses out on her education because of her period.
Sanitary provisions are available to all students from Mrs Welsh and bins provided in the Year 5/6 toilets.
If your child has any questions regarding this please speak to Mrs Welsh.
Year 6 have had lots of fun learning samba in PE this half term, they have shown lots of energy and enthusiasm and I think you’ll agree our final performances are excellent!
