It’s been an exciting start to the year for the pupils and staff at the newly-designated Seahouses Primary School.

The Year 5 pupils who had expected to be going to middle school are adjusting well and taking on lots of new challenges and responsibilities.

In the next few weeks, they will be carrying out field work along the length of the River Aln and will produce a display of their work in school.

The new uniform has gone down really well and the Head Girl and her mum oversaw the collection of all the old uniforms which were donated to raise money for the Great North Air Ambulance.

On the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth, the children had a Dahlicious Dress-Up Day when parents joined the children in a series of activities.

Then, on Monday last week, the school hosted a surprise visit from the Osiligi Maasai Warriors.

The old uniforms from Seahouses First School were donated to the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

Harry, a Year 2 pupil, said: “It was really exciting, I liked seeing the warriors. They had amazing colourful clothes with lots of jewels. This is the best learning!”

As usual, the school will be hosting its very well-supported Come Dine and Read sessions for families and this term is introducing new Come Munch with Maths events in all year groups.

The Open Learning Day is set to take place on December 9, when parents, families and members of the community are invited into school to see the children’s learning.
