Nursery have had lots of fun celebrating Red Nose Day today. We have played lots of games like pin the nose on the teachers, nose and spoon races and making our own red noses. There has been lots of giggles and silly faces

All ready to be delivered! Lots of beautiful Christmas cards and letters written to the residents of Croft House by our very thoughtful children ❤️ We’re very proud to have such lovely, caring children at Shotton Primary School.

REMEMBRANCE DAY:Our children showed their respect by taking part in the two minute silence at 11am

During happy schools today, 6R have been sharing their worries and concerns about moving up to secondary school. Once the children had shared their worries we talked about ways they could cope and discussed some possible strategies. We were lucky enough to have a former pupil with us during the session, who was able to answer a lot of the children's questions

For the Birds

Today was Holocaust Memorial Day. In assembly our Reception and KS1 pupils watched this Pixar film to think about why we should never treat someone differently or be unkind just because they look or are different to us.Even our younger children are taught about tolerance and mutual respect.

Today was Holocaust Memorial Day. In KS2 assembly we thought carefully about the British values of tolerance and mutual respect, learning about what the Holocaust was and the terrible things that have happened in history because of prejudice and discrimination. We all have a responsibility to speak out.

Your voice is amazing

Your Voice is Amazing is the 90-second film created for Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2012. The theme for HMD 2012 was Speak Up, Speak Out which asked you to take inspiration from the past and pledge to speak out against persecution, hated and discrimination.

Miss Wilson's Year 3 children have had a lovely day learning about why we wear Christmas jumpers to help others. They looked at the charity 'Save The Children' and decided to write acrostic poems to raise awareness about this important cause. Miss Wilson was very impressed by the maturity and compassion that her class showed.

What fun we had on Friday! Not only did we support 'Save the Children' by wearing our Christmas Jumpers, we also enjoyed a scrumptious Christmas Lunch. Many thanks to our wonderful kitchen staff who cooked us a delicious lunch. Everyone had a fantastic time getting into the Christmas spirit. Our lunch hall was jingling with happiness and and Christmas singing! Special memories were made.

This morning our Year 6 Phoenix Fire Champions presented their project to some special visitors from County Durham and Darlington Fire Service as well as their parents. The children have been working closely with the fire service recently, focusing on arson reduction within our local area. The fire service were so impressed with the children’s maturity and passion towards the project. Afterwards, we all enjoyed some of the fantastic cake Mrs Shaw made to celebrate the occasion!

Friday:15th November: Reception children got a lovely surprise when Pudsey Bear visited this morning. The children got their photo taken with him and welcomed him into our school. Throughout the day they took part in lots of fun Pudsey themed activities.

During our Happy Schools sessions Year 3 have been talking about what our role is in making sure we create positive relationships. They came up with a profile of what we would consider a good friend and a bad friend. They had some excellent ideas about how we can be considerate and caring towards our peers.

Friday 8th November: Our school Council have written and led a whole school assembly in preparation for our fundraising contribution to Children in Need. They really helped us all to understand what Children in Need is.

Our Reception children enjoyed a visit from PCSO Tori on Friday. She talked to the children about the role of a Police Officer and showed them all the equipment she needs to do her job. The children were so excited to get to see her Police Van and to sit in the back of it!

We are very lucky to have our fantastic swimming teacher Mrs Evans on site at Shotton Primary. As Year 1 have been learning about the coast this term, Mrs Evans kindly came to talk to us about water safety. We learned what to do in an emergency, how to keep ourselves safe around water and learned what the different warning signs at the beach mean

Juy 2019: Each class teacher nominated a Magic Powers Champion for this year who received special medals this morning. These children have been chosen due to their fantastic attitude and effort in class all year. Well done!

Year 6 this afternoon visited Durham Cathedral, to take part in a Leavers Service, which was attended by several other school from across the North East. Children completed 4 activities, including writing about their concerns when they move to a new school, and reflecting on their time at their current schools and the staff and other children who have supported them during their time. Well done to Molly and Cameron for carrying the school banner so well, and to everyone for some fantastic singing. A very enjoyable afternoon in an inspirational building
