Pupil voice

Classes Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe and Chateau de Versailles visited Dover Museum on Thursday.  Pupils were asked if they had enjoyed their trip and what they had learnt and this is what they said…

Alejandro said, “It was a very good trip, I liked the information about the Bronze Age.  My favourite part of the trip was learning about the Bronze Age Boat.”

Nirubiga said, “I really enjoyed making the Bronze Age Boat from clay because it wasn’t just making the boat, we also made things to go with the boat such as pottery and clothing.  I really enjoyed our school trip to Dover Museum.”

Marcel said, “It was a good trip.  I learned about the Bronze Age Boat and how they lived.  The Bronze Age Boat was found in 1992.”

Football Tournament

The football team at Aycliffe Community Primary School took part in their first tournament of the year on Monday, 12 November 2018.  The team played three matches but unfortunately didn’t make it to the 2nd round.  The team showed a lot of hard work and perseverance, scoring two goals!  Well done to Marcel and Liam for scoring the goals and Jaydn for an outstanding effort as goalkeeper!

Information

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.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

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

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.
