On Tuesday 5th April children from Years 3 and 6 enjoyed a memorable day when they were invited to attend the official opening of the Spanish Gallery.
Prince Charles and Queen Letizia of Spain were there. We were lucky enough to see and speak to them and 2 of our pupils gave them gifts as part of their welcome to Bishop Auckland.
Here’s a link to one of the many videos of their visit.
Here’s our monthly newsletter. You’ll find useful information and dates as well as news from across school.
Over the last few weeks, our year 3 and 4 Football Team have been going great guns in the Education Enterprise Football League.
They have played brilliantly, losing only one match out of twelve in their journey to the finals this week.
On finals day, they secured a fantastic third place, and a bronze medal, out of 16 other teams in the Bishop Auckland area.
We say a massive thank you and well done to: Thomas, Harrison, Roman, Alaina, Leeon, Lucca, Oliver, TT and our brilliant goalie Otheay!

Comic Relief arrived at St Wilfrid’s on Friday 18th March.
Children came to school as a sporty stars! School was packed with footballers, tennis stars, and of course expert hula hoopers.
As part of the day, we all worked with super coach Rob Proud and rocked out with our hula hoops. There were challenges and loads of fun to be had, while raising £111 for Comic relief.
Well done everyone!
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, we set up a BOOK SWAP STALL in school. It’s a bit like a library, where anyone can bring a book from home that they don’t read so much anymore, and swap it for a new one. If you like the story you’ve picked, you can even keep it forever! Then you might bring another book from home, and swap again. We just ask that everyone sticks to – ONE IN, ONE OUT – and that the books that are put in the boxes are in good condition. Book Swap can be found in the corner of the hall, outside Mrs Kinsey’s ‘office’ area. There are picture books, chunky books, fact books and comics to swap.
On the last day of half term, Miles Salter (author, poet, story teller and musician) visited us in school. He has written lots of books, including the book – Howl: A Small and Heavy Adventure. This was his first children’s book, and he kindly gave lots of copies to children as prizes and to our classes for our reading for pleasure corners
During his visit, he worked with every child in school, giving us tips for writing, bringing stories to life with role play and getting us all singing along with his guitar.
The day was a great success, and children and teachers said that they had lots of ideas for creating and bringing stories to life thanks to Miles’ workshops.
Friday 4th March we sent out our newsletter for March.
You’ll find information about the Ukraine Crisis collection, upcoming dates and life in school over the past few weeks.
