I Aspire project

In the week beginning 20th June, the y6 children visited Dyke House on two occasions to take part in the I Aspire programme. They thought about their own personality and how this lends itself to qualities that they might need in order to do different jobs and pursue careers. On the final visit on Friday afternoon the children worked with year 9 pupils from DH to complete team building activities. They had a great time and learnt lots about life pathways and career choices.


London Trip

On the 15th - 17th June, children from year 4, 5 and 6 visited London. On the first night the children enjoyed their evening meal at Pizza Hut before moving onto the theatre to watch 'Matilda'. They had a very busy day on the Thursday beginning with a panoramic sightseeing tour of  London followed by a trip to the Sea Life centre and a flight on the London Eye. The day was finished off with a tea at Planet Hollywood, the burgers were delicious. On the final day, they visited the Natural History museum before heading back to school. It was a jam packed three days for the children and adults, however the standard of behaviour from the all of the children was fabulous and they were all super representatives of the school.

"I've had a fantastic time in London  and my favourite part was Matilda because it was funny and the acting was amazing."

8th March 2016

This afternoon we opened up our classroom and lessons to the parents.  If was great to see so many parents come and join in activites with the children.  We all had a great time making and testing electrical circuits, discovering what we could do to make a bulb brighter or a buzzer louder, and what happens when we put lots of bulbs onto one battery.  Click the picture to view the gallery.


For St Aidan's Art day, the focus was Chinese New Year. The children made indoor kites, Chinese masks and wrote messages in Chinese writing.
