This week, our assemblies were based on the Anti-Bullying Week theme of “One Kind Word” with Odd Socks Day on Monday celebrating individuality. We have also enjoyed Children in Need day, reminding children of the significance of this important charity.
Children in Need
The children enjoyed working on the theme this year which is ‘Together We Can’. Our dance competition has proved very popular and showed great teamwork. Look out for the videos on FaceBook, where you can vote for your favourite dance. Thank you for all the donations brought in today; we will let you know how much we raised in due course.
Teesside at Christmas Appeal
We would like to support the Teesside at Christmas Appeal who are looking to give filled shoe boxes of gifts and essentials to those who would go without at Christmas. Please use the link below or look at the posters below to find details of what is recommended to go in the shoe boxes. If anyone would like to donate a filled shoe box or to send items in that we can make boxes up in school, then please do so by Monday 29th November, so we can give them to this small, local charity.

Please remember to phone the academy if your child is going to be absent.
Times Tables Rockstars
Practicing times tables is so important in improving maths and is a huge part of number work from Year 2 upwards. Please encourage your child to use their account to get as fast as they can which will help them be able to apply their knowledge to different areas of maths.
