There were 100 children who had achieved 98% + attendance for the whole academic year. They were rewarded with a free after school disco, please check out the gallery below…
As you know we have been raising money for Children with Cancer UK since September 2017.
Over the year we have received weekly donations from families, we have had used uniform sales and we also held our wonderful and well supported 5k Fun Run.
The total money raised is £3166.10! We are also aware that some families who were sponsored for the 5k Fun Run had donations made directly to the charity.
Additional to this Mrs Raine raised £1,530 for the charity for completing The Hadrian’s Wall ultra marathon.
That’s a staggering £4696.10! Thank you to everyone who has supported this charity in some way over the year, it really is outstanding.
Mr Dixon, Miss Waters, Mr O’Dowd and Mr Jackson took 18 100% attendance and 12 Special Recognition award children to Sambuca’s for their lunch on Monday 16th July as part of their reward.
Well done to them all!
Below are some lovely photographs of their time there.
It was my pleasure yesterday to welcome in to school the lovely friends and family of our children who received an award. It is always one of the highlights of the school year when we recognise the extra special efforts and commitment of our wonderful children.
I know staff spend a long time trying to pick one winner from their class, it is always so difficult.
We have also recognised the efforts of many children who have attained 100% attendance. A special mention must also go to Isabel who has not dropped one day in her four years at Consett Junior School, we are immensely proud of her efforts.
Well done to all the winners.
Thank you to all of the parents and children who attended Party in the Park this weekend to support the Junior band. The children are a credit to the school. The music played in the bandstand sounded excellent on such a sunny day.
Thank you to all of the parents who helped to set up, pack away and did a lot of lifting and carrying for us.
The children in the band are now looking forward to their well deserved treat at Ultimate Bounce on Wednesday.
We had a fabulous Sports Day on Friday. The weather was beautiful and the children were all extremely supportive towards one another. Thank you to Mr Meadows for organising this event.
Congratulations to Unsworth, who won the cup!!!
Over the last 13 weeks we have worked with well over 30 children as part of the Summer Term Nurture Club. The purpose of this club was to bring together a group of children from all years who have either been in-year transfers (from neighbouring schools), have a boasting personality, or who are generally quiet in school. We were amazed at the growth of the children over the weeks they have attended our club, and the engagement processes they have passed through week by week.
Every week we did a new activity or game, there was no pressure to be involved, they could just spend the time having fun and being ‘kids’. Finding time in busy lives to ‘play’ and have fun is sometimes difficult, with time being precious or governed by other daily chores. From watching children in the first week, in comparison to last nights session has been emotional. They have learned to be themselves and to build relationships with children in different year groups, that they would never have had the confidence to do without the drive of this club. Sadly, next week (Thursday 19th July) is our very last session. As new clubs come and go we will not be continuing this club in September, but hope the children would sign up to other after school clubs moving forward. However, Nurture Club WILL be back in April 2019!
This club was invitation only, and we feel many families thought there was ‘something wrong’ with their child for being invited, if you speak to these children now, and ask their opinion of the club, i am positive they will tell you it was great ‘fun’. A learning journey without a timetable, or books…
Erin M – A flourishing flower
Matthew T – The confident boy who keeps on growing
Ruby R – Small yet mighty with a very bright and bold smile
Aja H – An amazing friend with a caring attitude
Peter H – The firework of light in the room
Brandon G – The in-year who has always been here! Phenomenal boy
Kieran and Finn – The friendship duo for life
Mikayla – The gel of the group
All members – individual and amazing…
Check out the gallery below which is a collection oh photographs over the last 13 weeks as well as many from last nights sessions. We will be sad to spend less time with these children from September, but hope they come back to us in April 2019.
Once again, thank you for choosing our school, every single child has been a pleasure, amazing and wonderful to spend time with…
Very best wishes
Mrs Raine, Miss Oselton, Mrs Hannant and Miss Waters
