Today children from across the school have had a taster session of the Skip2Bfit workshop. These unique skipping workshops are about motivating the children to succeed, whilst at the same time encouraging them to exercise. Skip2BFit worked in the school throughout the day seeing the children in their class groups for sessions, with a 15 minute assembly at the end of the day. In the sessions they showed the children how to skip, breaking it down into 5 simple steps and then demonstrating what the children can do when you practiced, showing them the technique that boxers learn to skip by. Everyone had a fantastic time whilst keeping fit and having fun!
Well done to everyone who contributed to this year’s Red Nose Day. We had a fun day with lots of red! We had a cake sale, joke competition and non-uniform day. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we have raised £200.25, which is amazing!
The winning jokes…
Why did the teddy bear say no to dessert? Because she was stuffed!
How do you get an astronauts baby to sleep? You rocket!
Why did the teddy bear say no to cake? Because he was stuffed!
What do you do when there are 3 red noses to collect? Pick your nose!
Why was the baby ant confused? Because all his uncles were ants!
Why don’t skeletons ever go trick or treating? Because they have no body to go with!
British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.
We are proud to be part of British Science Week 2019.
At Copeland Road Primary School, we love to read. Reading is something we celebrate across the school. Children and staff made a tremendous effort to celebrate World Book Day 2019, the children and staff dressed in a variety of outfits to show off their love of reading.
Today, each child has received a £1 World Book Day book token, all the children need to do is to take it to their local bookseller and swap it for one of the TWELVE (exclusive, new and completely FREE) World Book Day books. Or, if the children prefer, they can use the book token to get £1 off any full price book instead.
Each class were given one of the 7 continents for their new display this term. The children gathered facts and created a wide range of artwork. The displays are a pleasure to look at, full of interesting information and colourful artwork!
Reception – Antarctica
Class 1 – Europe
Class 2 – Australia
Class 3 – Asia
Class 4 – Africa
Class 5 – North America
Class 6 – South America

The children had lots of fun on Wednesday 27th February 2019 watching ‘The Selfish Giant‘ by Image Theatre Productions. Their performance told the story of a giant who won’t share, he soon realises that it’s the children’s love that makes the garden grow and allows them to play in the garden. Based on a novel by Oscar Wilde. The children took part in all of the songs and some even had acting parts.
We attended the Educate and Celebrate Durham final Bake Off on Monday 11th February. We had 3 hours to bake and decorate our cake around the theme of peace, activism and reconciliation. The judges were Miss Tess and Jaff from The Futureheads. Even though we didn’t win, Sophie and Macey had a brilliant day and enjoyed themselves.
