School Activities - December 2013
Children from Year 7 and 8 were out of school earlier this term making visits to support their work in Humanities. Year 7 visited Prudhoe Castle as part of their work on the medieval period and Year 8 visited Killhope to explore the life of lead miners during the industrialisation of the country.
Year 7 visited the Queen’s Hall in October to hear a talk from John Boyne author of “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas” and Year 5 and visited author Jonathan Meres who wrote the “World of Norm” series of books.
A group of 8 Y7 and Y8 pupils attended the Kids Lit Quiz in Newcastle with Mrs Nohl. Although not winners they competed well and enjoyed the experience.
Y8 participated in ‘Star Student’, a session led by Northumbria
University designed to introduce them to higher education.

Our first edition of the Corbridge Chronicle was issued at the end of October by Mrs Hamilton and her editorial team.
On Children in Need Day the school held a Bake Sale to raise money and a choir from school sang in a BBC concert for Children in Need at Trinity Methodist Church.
Members of our choir also entertained late night shoppers in Corbridge on 9th December with a selection of Christmas songs and carols.
Our Christmas Carol Service held in St Andrew’s Church in Corbridge was a particular highlight this year. In the beautiful surroundings of the church the voices of the children, their playing and readings lit up the evening and created a lovely atmosphere in preparation for Christmas.
