We have some new starters at Aycliffe Community Primary School this term. They were asked how they had found their first full week at their new school and this is what they said……
Riley said, “I like my new friends. I am having fun at my new school. I like to play with my brother Regan at lunch time. I really like my new teachers.”
Regan said, “I like playing with all my new friends during snack time and lunch time. I really like my new teachers. I have been learning numbers and I got to make a jam sandwich today. I got given a certificate today for good listening."
Emily for being resourceful in our English this week. Emily used the working wall and classroom environment to support herself.

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.
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.
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.

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.
