Parents Open Evening

On Monday evening, we have our Open Evening for Nursery – Year 6 from 4pm until 6pm. Parents are invited into school to have an informal chat with teachers and look at children’s work. This is a good opportunity to see how your child has settled into their current year group. If you require a more confidential meeting with the teacher to discuss any specific concerns, please contact the class teacher for a separate appointment.

Miss Briston will be displaying books from our new reading scheme in the school hall for parents to have a look at. We will also put out all of the lost property in the school that has built up. If you have any missing items, please pop to see if they are there.

Early Years

We are so super proud of all of the children in Early Years after their fantastic behaviour on our trip. The children absolutely loved their adventure finding some amazing dinosaurs! We would like to thank everybody who was able to help on our trips. Without your support it would not be possible! Thankyou!

Children in Need

Next Friday (16th Nov) is Children in Need and children have the option to come dressed in spots or wear a spotty item for a donation of £1. We look forward to seeing lots of spots around school – all for a great cause.

PTA Meeting

On Thursday, we held a planning meeting for our PTA Christmas Fair – thank you to the two parents who attended this meeting. Any money raised by PTA is directly fed back into school to make a difference to our children. We try to reduce costs of trips through donations from PTA. They bought the stage and lighting for our school hall, which is used for discos and concerts. We are trying to raise funds for a multi-use games area which will be £68,000. Therefore, fund raising is essential as there is no money in school budgets to go towards wonderful facilities like a multi-use games area (MUGA). Ideas and help in future would be greatly received!

Christmas Fair

Our Christmas Fair will be held on Friday 23rd November from 3.30pm-5.30pm. We would like to offer parents/carers the opportunity of hiring a table to sell crafts/gifts. The cost of a table will be £10, plus the donation of a prize for our raffle. If you are interested please contact Mrs Connelly at school (jfkconelly@junctionfarm.org.uk) with your details by midday on Wednesday 14th November.

TFM Cash for Kids – Mission Christmas

Due to the fantastic response last year, we would like to support the local TFM Cash for Kids – Mission Christmas. They collect donations and gifts to be given to children who would otherwise receive nothing. As a school, we would like to show our support by contributing gifts this Christmas. Gifts must be new, unused, unwrapped and suitable for a child aged 0-18 years. If you would to join us in supporting this collection, please bring gifts to school by Friday 14th December. They will then be collected by the Mission Christmas branded van.

Key Steps Gymnastics Competition – Year 3/4

Yesterday gymnasts: Rylee K, Eve H, Isabelle F, Charlotte F, Isla C competed in their first Key Steps Gymnastics Competition with Junction Farm at Stainsby Gymnastics Club. Each of the children performed a floor routine and a vault with a limited amount of time to prepare and all performed amazingly. Mrs Hill and Mrs MacDonald are super proud of the gymnasts and can’t wait for the children to showcase their skills in the next competition! Well done all!

Year 5-6 Stockton Cluster Indoor Athletics

On Tuesday, the children took part in a very competitive competition at Durham’s Stockton Campus. This included endurance, sprint, obstacle, relay and field events. The children have sailed through to the next round with the highest score in Stockton! What an amazing achievement. We are looking forward to the next round at the end of this month!

Year 5-6 Football at Egglescliffe

On Wednesday, we entered 3 teams into the Eaglescliffe cluster competition. This is a great achievement in itself, as no other school managed to enter 3 teams. This shows the passion the children have for football in this school! Team 2 and 3 came 4th and 5th in their group with great goals from Faris, Ismael and Jacob. Team 1 came second in their group, winning 5 games and narrowly losing 1. Amazing strikes from Lewis, Luke and Josh were highlights from some amazing team performances. Well done Junction Farm!

Year 3/ 4 Football at Egglescliffe

On Thursday evening we took 3 teams to the monthly football tournament at Egglescliffe Secondary School. We had amazing performances from all three teams and some fabulous goals. Special mention to Freddie B-S who scored 5 goals and Jack M who scored 3 goals. The player of the match for team one was Freddie B-S for his brilliant team spirit, team two was Edward G and team three was Ben H. A massive well done to these three children and all the children who took part.

Anti-Bullying/Friendship Week

As part of anti-bullying week the children will be taking part in activities across the curriculum relating to issues surrounding bullying/friendship through the theme of ‘choose respect’. The aim of these sessions is to promote positive relationships and choosing kindness.

Woodland Trust Assembly
