A reminder to our families that we break up for half term on Friday 9th February, returning Monday 19th February.
Everyone had a super fun playtime in the snow today. Luckily everyone was wrapped up warm, and enjoyed being outside.
Children in Years 5 and 6, were offered the amazing opportunity to sing at The Sage, Gateshead. As part of the learning alliance with Park View School, the children had singing lessons from a specialist music teacher. They learnt three lovely Christmas songs which were performed with other children from the Chester Le Street cluster. Four of the class came to The Sage and had a fantastic time.
Last week Neptune had a visit from our lovely school nurse, Donna Scott, who gave an interesting lesson on teeth.
The children learnt all about how to brush properly, and how veryimportant it is to look after our teeth.
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.
All families are welcome to visit our special Christmas Fair, to be held in the School Hall at 3.3opm. There will be lots of stalls, raffles and refreshments.
Everyone at Beamish was involved in science activities on Friday. The theme of all the classes was the outdoors. There was lots of digging and planting, in our lovely wildlife area, and Key Stage 2 made bird feeders and hedgehog homes.
As usual we will be supporting Children in Need. Everyone is invited to go spotty, and to bring a donation. Mrs Clark will have a selection of Pudsey merchandise for sale from Monday 17th November.
This term parents evening will be held on Wednesday 15th November, starting at 3.30pm. Letters will be sent out soon, so you can request a suitable time.
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.
