Pupil Voice

The pupils at Aycliffe Community Primary School were asked what they thought of the Poetry Workshops that took place on Wednesday and here is what Louie-Jay and Ella thought.

Louie-Jay said, “The man told us a poem about a snake biting the class teachers thumb, I enjoyed the poem.  It was very loud though when the class were screaming and shouting.”

Ella said, “The man was very, very funny but he was scary too.  He explained the background of the poems to us before telling us the poem so we would understand it.  He told us scary poems as well as funny ones.  He told us a poem about teachers wearing pants on their heads, it was very funny.  He also told us scary poems about clowns which I didn’t enjoy because clowns scare me.  He made us all scream and laugh at the same time by pretending to pull a monster out of his bag but when he turned to us he pretended to be a monster and roared.  I really enjoyed the workshop.”

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

After school sports clubs

After school clubs will be running from Monday 10 September 2018.  If you would like to your child to attend, please contact the school office.  

Monday - Multi-Sports for Years 1 - 6

Tuesday - Take Action for Years 2 - 6

Wednesday -  Gymnastics for Years 2 - 6

Thursday - Football for Years 2 - 6

Friday - Street Dance for Years 2 - 6  

All sports clubs finish at 4.15pm and all children must be collected by an adult.

Information

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Book Swap

We have a book case in the school office which is for you to come and take a look. If you see a book you like you may take it and all we ask is that you replace it with a book of your own that you have already read for someone else to enjoy.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
