The children at after school club have been practising on their precise aiming when throwing. They competed in a Velcro Darts tournament. Harry was awarded 'player of the tournament' for his persistence and overall improvement. Oliver won the tournament with the highest score of 190 points.
This term the children at gymnastics club had been working in pairs or threes to make up and perform their own routines. The routines were shown to three mystery judges and were then scored. The winners were Chloe, Leah and Poppy as they were awarded a total of 14 points. Alejandro was also awarded most 'innovative move'.
We’ve had the School Liaison Officer in this week to congratulate Pupil Panels about their work in helping to improve attendance.
This is what Ella and Emily had to say…….
Ella said, “We were told that other schools don’t have the 100% attendance tree. The School Liaison Officer works all over Kent and hadn’t seen one before. She also told us why it’s good to make sure we are always in school and on time. That way we will have fun and learn.”
Emily said, “Pupil Panels have made some posters and we have put them around Aycliffe to say why we should be in school. We will be given a certificate; and a badge from Mrs Cox if we have 100% attendance. The Family Liaison Officer gave the school a certificate, this is to celebrate the whole school’s attendance.”

After school sports clubs
After school clubs will be running from Monday 25 February 2019. 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.
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.
