Well done to all our Year 7 and Year 8 pupils who participated in the Tynedale Cricket Festival in Stocksfield last week. The Y8 boys won and will go through to the county tournament in June, the Y7 boys and girls did really well in their group stages, and the Y8 girls managed to reach the semi-finals.

A huge well done to our Year 6 pupils on the completion of their KS2 SATs 2018. We are all incredibly proud of their efforts.

Mrs Roff and Mr Watters and the Y6 team

On Friday 11 May 2018, many pupils in Year 6 were treated to a SPAG fair in Fellside Hall. Pupils in Mrs Roff's English class hosted the fair and all involved said it was a huge success. There were stalls testing everything from spellings to punctuation and grammar, many with tempting prizes and treats to reward hard work! Well done to all the pupils and a special thank you to those who hosted stalls.

We are very excited to announce that Key Stage 2 pupils will soon be given the opportunity to learn Latin at HMS.  Thanks to the generous support of the PTA, the Primary Latin Project, Classics for All and Mrs Jarvis, a parent and Latin trainer, we will soon be offering a lunchtime club to pupils in Years 5 and 6 who wish to experience ancient Roman culture and take their first steps in learning Latin.  We will be following the Minimus scheme, which is a fantastic book studied in schools worldwide and set at nearby Vindolanda.  

In addition to the letter we have sent home, please see the leaflet for parents/carers regarding the Year 6 English and maths assessments. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
