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.

 

Our fantastic Year 5 mini police had the opportunity to visit the control tower at our local police station as part of their programme of activities this term. They had a great time finding out about how the team handles calls coming in to the station, and even had a go at operating a police radio.

Afterwards, they had a very interesting time visiting the custody centre, learning all about the work that the police do to keep everyone safe.

They asked lots of great questions, and were totally professional, representing the school beautifully as always!

Girls Football

Thursday saw the end of the girls football season. The season is split into 2 stages with fixtures earlier in the year dictating the second half of the season. In the early part of the season Team A won their group and went forward to the champions league and the Team B went into the championship. In the second half of the season the girls continued to develop their football skills and understanding of the game and both teams finished 4th in their groups. A massive well done to all the girls and its really good to see several have moved onto playing for local teams.

Another Football Success

On Thursday the boys football team completed their league season. Going into the final round of fixtures the boys were in second place 6 points behind leaders Westoe with a game in hand.

In the first round of fixtures the boys beat Laygate 4 nil, with goals for Leighton, Taylor, Harry and Bailey, whilst Westoe beat Mortimer 1 nil. This meant that with just two games to go the boys were still 6 points behind and our next game was against league leaders Westoe.

In a really tight and exciting game the boys defended really well and played on the counter attack. They were rewarded when Taylor scored just before half time. In the second half Harry caught Westoe again on the counter attack to put the boys 2 up. Westoe threw everything they could at the boys for the remainder of the match but a wonder save by Corey kept them out meaning the game ended 2-0 to Harton.

Going into the final game the boys knew that a victory would give them the league title and they quickly raced into a 4 nil lead in the first half, goals for Harry, Josh and 2 for Bailey. Excellent goal keeping in the second half prevented the boys adding to their score but it didnt matter, they were the CHAMPIONS!

A superb team performance in all three games with Charlie, Jayden and Rome all playing a big part in the title victory. Well done lads.

Harton Puzzlers Fund Raising

The Puzzlers are raising money for their trip to the national Lego League competition. They have designed 8 different badges and are planning on selling them for 50p each, to go towards the flights and hotel for the event.

So the children have started cutting and pressing their badges on a lunchtime. Only about 500 left to go!

Year 5 Christmas Performance

We are so proud of our Year 5 children after their performance of ‘The Prophecy Predicted’ by composer, Andrew Richardson.  It was an excellent performance in front of parents, with some amazing singing and acting.

 

The children have performed the musical play three times and have been outstanding at every show.  We hope you like our full-cast photograph.
