Well done to all our lucky Christmas raffle winners!
Year 3 had a wonderful visit to Palace Green in Durham to consolidate their knowledge about the Stoneage to Ironage period of history which they have been studying in class.
They took part in a museum trail on the different periods and enjoyed trying their hands at weaving.
They looked at, drew and described historical artefacts as well as designing and making their own coin.
Finally the children became osteo archeologists and investigated a historical skeleton. They pieced together clues to determine who the skeleton could have belonged to.
On the 13th September we celebrated Roald Dahl’s birthday and supported his charity by paying £1 to come to school wearing non-school uniform and something yellow if possible. During the day we took part in many activities linked to Roald Dahl, discussed facts about his life and listened to aspects of some of the many books he wrote. We also took part in a whole school competition; here are the winners. We raised £160.95 for this worthwhile charity.
Year 6 were so excited to receive their leavers hoodies. Don’t they look smart!
Class 4NW enjoyed performing a poem from A Midsummer’s Night Dream as part of our Shakespeare workshop.
Year 4 took part in an amazing lego workshop. We built a lego city and then used electrical circuits to make the buildings light up and vehicles move. We all had a fantastic afternoon.
The school football team have taken part in the Air Quality MEM League over the last 4 weeks and on Thursday 12th of October played their final match. The team won every match they played and won the league. The children showed great team spirit and resilience.

Biddick Hall Junior School has recently received its reaccreditation for the Healthy School standard. We were told that, ‘Biddick Hall has an impressive offer of active and sustainable travel around the local area. This is complemented by a daily commitment to Wake Up Shake Up and an excellent offer of physical activity.’ Mrs Hayward and Mrs Sandy came to school to present it in an assembly.
Well done to Red House who won this years sports day!
