Each year we celebrate World Book Day with a variety of reading and creative writing projects in school. This year the event takes place on Thursday 5th March.
Students have been working with Durham Amateur Rowing Club (DARC), which has recently been nominated for Club of the Year, to complete a 12 week introductory course in rowing and water safety. The group were trained by professional rowers, Bethany Yates and Debbie Connolly.
As part of our committment to improving literacy skills, we are currently developing and introducing a number of new learning resources. Literacy Learning Walls and Mats are now a feature of every classroom.
Students in all year groups are looking forward to a variety of opportunities to travel as part of their learning.
