Whole School Elmer Project

Thank you to all of our parents/guardians for the contributions during our Elmer Project Day. We raised over £400 for St. Oswalds Hospice.

We are so excited for Elmer’s Great North Parade and cannot wait to see our Harton Primary School elephant on the trail. During our project day the children put forward their own design ideas and they were amazing. We cannot wait to share them with you.


School Reopens On Monday 18th March

Good News!

Despite the rain, the workmen have managed to make the roof safe.

School will reopen to all pupils on Monday 18th March.

We will have our own Red Nose Day on Friday 22nd March and Y2E’s class assembly will be rescheduled.

All events planned for this week will go ahead (Music Festival for Year 2 and the choir).

Thank you for you patience and understanding.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.

YRP’s Visit to the School Kitchen

As part of our topic ‘People who help us’, each Reception class visited the school kitchen to find out how our lunches are made. The children were greeted by our cook Mrs Seales, and were shown around the busy kitchen. The children watched as the jacket potatoes were cooked, the pizzas were prepared and the sandwiches made.

The children particularly enjoyed going into the chiller!

Looking at all the ingredients.

Potion Making in Class YRR!

This week our class celebrated Halloween by making a magical potion! All the children loved discussing what we could put their potion and were amazed when our potion started to bubble!

“The potion has changed now”    “It looks like milkshake”   “I would put spiders in my potion!”

“It’s getting bigger!”
