Happy World Book Day!

March 2, 2017

Thank you everyone for the fantastic effort you have made to celebrate World Book day.

The annual celebration of authors, illustrators and reading is marked in more than 100 countries around the world.

The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own.

Mrs Leach started the day with an assembly talking about the theme for World book day this year.


Saturday club starts this week 1pm - 3pm

January 5, 2016





It’s  fun,   it’s   free   and it’s  for everyone 1pm – 3pm every week


We have been awarded a grant from the Gateshead Housing Company Community Fund, at the Community Foundation, to enable the school to open

Our SATURDAY club runs     between:


Parents should drop     children off and sign them in and out at the Jungle Nursery building     gate entrance.

Starts SATURDAY 9TH     JANUARY 2016

on a Saturday for children in Years R – 6 in the local community. We are open between 1pm and 3pm every Saturday during term time. Children can enjoy 45 minutes on our new library bus doing fun activities linked to reading and 45 minutes doing exciting activities with a Premier sports coach, with a break for juice and fruit. The idea is to get children active on a weekend whilst getting access to our library in their free time and make Saturdays as fun as possible!
