Weekly Round up

Welcome back to a new term at Dormanstown! 

We hope everyone had a fantastic holiday, as we look forward to warmer nights and royal coronations! 

This week in school it has been lovely to see so many smiling faces, and to witness how quickly and positively children have returned to their learning.  

We have seen fantastic work in all areas of school including: thoughtful consideration of religion and culture, amazing myths and legends stories as well as lots of progress in Winning With Numbers – and we are delighted with how all children have started the new term! 

We have also been visited this week by Rita and Grace from Cleveland Fire Service, who delivered an assembly to our KS2 children based on fire safety and their new initiative Play With Passion Not Fire. 

They also dropped off some footballs for school, and have been in the community spreading their message and giving rewards to children who support their fire awareness message. 

We look forward to sharing more events with you in the upcoming weeks! 

Class Showcase

1T and 2C are showing us what they’ve been learning in school.


This week was the started our new topic in PE where we are learning how to play bat and ball sports. We remembered how to hold the bat correctly and we are developing our hand eye coordination.


In DT, the children have been exploring mechanisms and have been designing and making a moving vehicle.

We have learnt how to join wood together to make a vehicle frame and understand how to make a structure stronger and more stable. We know how to use tools safely and enjoyed using a hacksaw to cut wood. 

Awesome Attendance

Each week we have an ‘Awesome Attendance’ competition for the class or classes with the highest attendance. The class with the highest attendance will receive a letter and the first class to spell out ‘Awesome’ receives a treat for the whole class.

Which class will be the first to receive that treat?

This weeks winners are………..

Missed Learning

28.5 days of missed learning occurred this week due to unauthorised absences. Unauthorised absences are for holidays, parents/carers not contacting the academy or any other unexplained absence. With most minor ailments, children can be in school, so we really encourage you to think about keeping your child at home.

100% Attendance

This week we had 231 children who achieved 100% Attendance for this week. A huge WELL DONE to you all 😊

Can you get 100% next week?

As we are all being affected by the cost-of-living crisis, we have a small stock of preloved uniform and coats/jackets that parents can come and purchase, all we are asking for is a donation. This will be open for you to come and have a look on a Tuesday & Thursday between 08.50 – 09.15 and 14.40 – 15.00 via the main office.


You can also get your children’s uniform here.

Lollipops have a preloved rail out on the shop floor with various items on including polo tops, trousers, sweatshirts/cardigans, shoes, plimsolls, summer dresses etc. All items on the rail are free for anyone to take, they just ask for customers to be considerate of others when taking items. There is a box for anyone who would like to make donations which we then add to the rail.
