We were pleased to join in the Litter free Durham Big Spring Clean by completing a litter-pick event in and around our school area.  All classes took part and helped clean up various areas around  our school grounds, the local park and Ferryhill Hub.

Little Green Riding Hood &The Magical Well (sequel)

The Fame Factory Spotlight Company, working with Northumbrian Water, made a return visit to remind us of the important message of saving water.  Everyone agreed, it was a very entertaining production.

Fair Trade Banana Day

As requested by the children, during Fair Trade Fortnight, we held a ‘Banana Assembly’ to make us all aware of the plight of the banana farmers.  We asked all pupils and staff, to bring a fair trade banana into school helping to reinforce the message “Stick with Foncho to make Bananas Fair”.

We had an important message delivered by Dwain the Drain about what we can and cannot put down our drains.
