Our Harton Primary Elmer has taken over the Customs House, as part of the Great North Elmer Parade. Designed and painted by pupils at our school!
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.
Our Elmer has arrived in school and it is ready to be painted with our school design. WATCH THIS SPACE!
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.
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!
This week we visited the Life Centre in Newcastle to learn more about space. The children loved visiting the planetarium and making star constellation pictures.
We had a lovely time!
All of the children have worked together to recreate the Christmas story and have retold the story in their own words. The children have been very proud of their work that has been showcased and displayed around school.
Recently, children brought home leaflets for the Christmas Child Shoe Box appeal. We look forward to receiving filled shoe boxes donated to this wonderful charity.
If you are not able to fill a shoebox but would like to make a contribution towards one – please just send in the items with your child and we will fill shoe boxes with donated items.
