Our gymnastics club got the opportunity to meet Olympic Gold medalist, Amy Tinkler!
The Choir sing in the Cathedral
What an amazing day the choir had today at Durham Cathedral! They rehearsed all morning and perormed during the afternoon. The children worked very hard and should be extremely proud of themselves! Thank you to all the parents/guardians who helped the children learn all the words for the songs - these were really tricky to learn! Thank you also to all those parents/relatives and friends that came to see the children perform- it made it even more special for the children.
Unfortunately I was not allowed to take photographs of the actual performance but we did find a few opportunities throughout the day. You can access the Cathedral's Facebook page which has an official photograph of the day.
When asking the children how they enjoyed the day, they said it was an amazing experience which is great to hear. They also loved the fact that they stored their lunches and coats in a room that was used in the Harry Potter movies!
I do hope we have more opportunities to perform in the Cathedral in the future and after today's performance, I am sure we will be in the running to take part again.
Well done to everyone of the children!
Our brand new reception area is officially open!
We got to meet our local MP, Bridget Phillipson, who came to cut the ribbon.
We all got together to celebrate the official opening and we were able to ask Ms Phillipson, MP for Houghton and Sunderland South, about her role during a question and answer session.
Ms Phillipson said: “I was delighted to be invited to officially open the school’s new reception and office area. The school has already achieved an impressive Ofsted report and I am sure the new area combined with their improved sports facilities will help them to build further on that success.” Our Head teacher Mrs Toole said: “East Rainton Primary school has invested in the future by building a spacious reception area and office area which improves the safety and security of the school. In addition, the school has dramatically improved the sports facilities with a multi user games area.”
