A wonderful week of exciting experiments and exploration was had by all. This year's theme of 'Innovation in Science' began with a workshop by Professor Bubbleworks which led the children  onto their own discoveries and innovations for the future.

The full report of the week can be viewed here.

Allotment Club

The hardworking Year 4 Allotment Club have been busy this year preparing the soil, sowing, planting out and of course harvesting the fruits of their labour.

See more of their efforts here.

Eco Flag

We are so proud to have been awarded the Eco flag for a phenomenal 5th time! The children celebrated the raising of the flag with a celebratory picnic on the last week of the Summer term.

Our journey to achieving this accolade can be viewed here.

Music - Wider Opportunities

Children in both KS1 and 2 have developed their musicianship skills in wider opportunity lessons led by Mrs Clark from the NT Music Hub. The children have become proficient in playing glockenspiel, djembe and violin.

Active Mile

Always endeavouring to stay physically active, the children completed the active mile. This required the children to run a massive 10 laps of the school field, some kept going even after 10!

PE - KS1 Fundamentals Competition

Year 1 and 2 pupils took part in a Fundamental Movement Skills competition ran by North Tyneside PE and Sport Team. They had great fun rolling, bouncing, catching balls as well as running. 

Christmas Festivities

We didn't let Coronavirus dampen our enthusiasm for the run up to Christmas. The children enjoyed bubble parties, Christmas dinner, Christmas crafts and an elves' workshop down in Early Years.

May Day

An alternative May Day celebration this year, the children learnt dances around the maypole as well as with sticks and swords (the wooden variety on this occasion!) They also learnt a little more about the history of May Day and enjoyed some theme related crafts.


Although unable to celebrate with parents in the usual way, the children still enjoyed an enriching experience. They explored the religious significance of the festival, created harvest crafts and recited poems.

Children in Need

We all dressed in spots, stripes and bright colours to raise a whopping £221.10 for the Children in Need cause in November.

Comic Relief - Red Nose Day

March saw our annual fundraising event for Comic Relief. The children dressed in red and donned their red noses for this national charity event.

Weekly Wellbeing

During lockdown our Weekly Wellbeing challenges gave the children an opportunity to be creative. Good for the mind and the soul the children created hearts from plastic waste, found interesting places to read a book and made Coquet out of everyday items from around the house. 

Children's Cancer Run

As part of our healthy week the children took part in the Children's Cancer Run. The weather didn't dampen anyone's spirits as they ran laps of the school playground to raise money for this important cause.

Forest School 

The children in Early Years have enjoyed their weekly Forest School activities throughout the year. Activities ranged from watching the changes through the seasons, making crafts like fairy breath bracelets and musical dancing sticks to STEM work building rivers, bridges and constructing dams.

World Book Day

The children took part in the annual World Book Day on 4th March this year. Nursery enjoyed reading for pleasure, whilst the rest of the school made their favourite book characters from different materials.

Healthy Week

Healthy week this year looked a little different to previous years. However, the children in all year groups enjoyed fun and engaging activities which allowed them to explore physical and mental wellbeing.

See more from each year group here.

Sports Day

As part of our healthy week activities the children took part in our annual Sports Day. Races included hurdles, sprint, sack race and the all time favourite, egg and spoon.


Year 4 had an alternative Hawkhirst activity week based in and around school and home.  A great way to end the year and their time at Coquet Park. The children completed team challenges, spent a day at the beach, took part in orienteering, den building and creating artworks from nature.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day was recognised in school by an installation of poppies on the Nursery gazebo. Children in each year group created their own poppies using different artistic techniques. A fitting tribute to remember those who fought for us. We supported the Royal British Legion with the selling of poppies and poppy related items.

World Vision

As a school we have sponsored Noelia through the World Vision scheme for another year. We sent her birthday and Christmas cards in addition to a Maths game to play. She sent us videos which were shared with the children in assembly time.

Music Mark

At the close of the summer term we received the exciting news that CPFS has been nominated by the Music Hub to become a Music Mark School for the new academic year.

Being a Music Mark School brings with it benefits for the school in it's delivering of music education.
