31st March 2019
With one week to go until the school holidays, I have been marvelling at how quickly this year has gone already!  Around the school grounds and on our way to the beach signs of Spring are definitely starting to show through.
Last week Puffins had a great time in Bamburgh at the Grace Darling museum.  It was great that all the work we had done about her during the previous weeks was then brought to life, with the children reenacting the story in full costume!  The staff at the museum were impressed with our knowledge of Grace and her family, as well as what made her famous.
Thank you to all those that donated old clothes etc for the Bags2School collection.  We raised £88, which will pay for a bus to go on a trip to enhance our curriculum next term.  
Last week I under-reported the amount that we had raised at the Spring Fair - we actually raised an amazing £450. 
This week is relatively quiet for the children (although just as busy as ever for staff, with meetings and courses).  On Friday it will be our last Beach School session with Bridie and Helen from Mudlarks.  Next term we will be going it alone!
Just a quick reminder that this week will be the last parent and toddler group on a Friday morning.  I know that Mrs Cotton has some fun activities planned, so do pop along!
