We had an amazing turnout for our Christmas Fayre. We had some brilliant prizes, and there were lots of stalls. All of the staff, and a few of our parents, did a great job organising, selling and clearing up. We made an fantastic £450! Lovely to see so many of our families enjoying themselves.

Everyone had a brilliant time at the Halloween disco, which was held in the school hall. Mrs Tyson was a great DJ and led plenty of fun games. We luckily had other staff helping, plus some lovely parent, and grandparent helpers. In between games and dancing everyone had a hot dog and a drink.
Neptune class had an amazing day out at The Centre for Life. Everyone loved the dinosaur exhibition and the science show.

As part of the Durham Book festival, Jupiter Class attended a workshop led by the author David Almond. We are currently reading his latest book, Half a Creature from the Sea, so it was fascinating to hear how he develops his ideas, and what is involved in the writing process.David told us to basically write about what we know. The class were so inspired, we started to plan our own stories as soon as we got back to school.
