Please see the worship and prayer opportunities available in All Saints’ during our Youth Mission. The theme of the mission is Unbroken – God’s love for us can never and will never be broken. Everyone is welcome to all of the planned events.
The whole school enthusiastically celebrated our feast day – All Saints’ Day on 1st November. Year Five led mass beautifully in the morning. Alongside some hand painting and cake eating, the children in Key Stage Two worked in their House Groups developing four potential new Mission Statements for our school and the children in Key Stage One worked in their class. They developed their meaning and designed images and movement for each statement. The children’s thoughts will be assimilated; following this, all children, parents, staff, governors and the parish will have the opportunity to vote for their preferred Mission Statement and the most popular will become our new Mission Statement. Once the children’s thoughts are finalised, everyone will be made aware of the options and voting can commence!
Alongside the Key Stage One Bake Off on Friday, home-grown soup will be available to buy. The Eco-Club children have been very busy harvesting the crops they have grown; vegetables are going to be added to soup made by Mrs Phillips and Year One children. The soup will be sold with a bread bun for 50p. It can be heated up or put in the freezer for later! Thank you for supporting our ‘Big Soup Share’.
Well done to Logan, Harrison and Jonathan who raised £830 for the R.V.I.’s Bubble Foundation by running the Mini and Junior Great North Run – a fantastic achievement!

We are thrilled that our playground was extended over the holidays – we now have a Multi Use Gaming Area (MUGA) and an area which will eventually be our school garden! Although it rained on the first day back, all of the children loved exploring!
The pupils in Year Four showcased their creative writing and art work as part of an art gallery. Family and friends were invited to look at the pieces about a Dragon’s Egg. It was such a wonderful event and was very popular with children and adults alike. Well done Year Four!
Well done to the thirty children who performed to hundreds of people at Durham Cathedral; they sung a range of songs with the choristers. They sounded fantastic and moved lots of people to tears. Thank you to Mrs. Dunn who worked hard preparing the choir.
The rain hasn’t stopped the children from enjoying their Health Week. So far, some of the activities they have experienced have been: a climbing wall, yoga, netball, rugby, skipping, intra-house competitions, high intensity interval training and circuits. They have also enjoyed the fruit available at the Healthy Tuck Shop! In the coming days, they have much more to look forward to.
