Children in Need Day 2017

Well, what a fantastic day we’ve had! We were dressed up, with our favourite teddies in tow, for a great dance in the hall…all of the teachers joined in and had a great time!

We also had 5 knitted Pudsey Bear toys per class to give away, lovingly hand-made by our very own Mrs Peacock.

We raised £268.35 towards this fantastic charity, helping children far and wide. The full selection of photos can be seen in our website gallery.

Well done everyone!

Year 4 does Bede-fest

Year 4 have started to learn about our new topic, Playlists. Our new Cornerstones curriculum encourages fun and exciting topic learning and each topic starts with a memorable experience. As our learning will be centred around music of the 20th Century, what better way to kick things off than with our very own school music festival!

After we arrived dressed as our favourite musicians, we began our day with a jamming session with Mr Mac, who kindly brought in an array of instruments for the children to have a go at playing. Throughout the day we enjoyed a song lyric quiz, crossword treasure hunt and a good old game of musical chairs (with a 20th Century playlist to match!)

The headliners of the festival were the fantastic Little Moth, who came to our school hall to give us a live performance. Jen and Tony played us a mix of old and new music with a bit of music history along the way – what a treat! The children really enjoyed their astounding performance (as did myself and Mr Mac).

Year 4 learnt about the music their grown-ups have grown up with and I learnt a few new dance moves along the way. It’s certainly not a day we will forget.


Watch out Glastonbury! 

Silly Sock Day


Just for fun, and to help us make sure we all got the right shoes after PE today, Reception class all wore silly socks today; bright colours, patterns, super heroes and princesses were all proudly displayed. Can you spot yours?

Bede Burn Battalion

We had done our research so it was time to invade Newcastle Castle. We had carefully studied their defences and worked out the best tactics to cross the moat and get past the guards, we knew how the drawbridge worked and how to avoid the dangerous spikes on the portcullis. Armed with our packed lunches we marched to the castle ready to do battle. A few prisoners were taken but we quickly released them and took the treasure!

We love our Buddies

To celebrate the end of our Castle topic we invited our buddies to a special party. With lots of games including ‘Pass the Sword’, ‘Knights and Archers’ and ‘Castle Corners’  and an ice cream banquet we had a great time. Thank you for being such super buddies Year 6, good luck in your new school, we will miss you.

Reception’s Family Fun Day 2017

Family Fun Day has become one of my favourite times of the year. It is lovely to see so many parents, grand parents, siblings and other family members for this special day. This year Mr Twister came to join us for some balloons and magic before we set off to the park for our picnic and a play. Whilst the rain stopped play earlier than we’d hoped it was still a great day. Thank you for joining us.
