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.
The children at Copeland Road love to read, from Reception to Year 6 every child is encouraged to read for pleasure. We recognise that reading is so important and reading a wide range of texts can improve the quality of children’s writing. This half term the children designed book covers, wrote blurbs around their favourite stories and also wrote about why they enjoyed a particular book.
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.

Tuesday 5th February is another opportunity for the e-Cadets to promote the important message around the safe use of the internet. At Copeland Road Primary we strive for every child to feel safe and confident when using the internet. The e-Cadets will also launch an e-safety competition, so watch this space for the winners!
The children took part in a waste and recycling assembly on Wednesday 16th January 2019. The interactive assembly looked in to the ins and outs of what can and can’t be recycled, where the recycling collected goes and what it’s made into. The presentation also covered home composting, reducing food waste and reusing items. The children took home a wealth of knowledge around recycling more.
Copeland Road have been crowned champions of the Bishop Auckland Winter League at St John’s Secondary School. This happened after winning 9 and only losing 2. The team lost their first 2 games on the first week and then went on to win 9 in a row! The team displayed great resilience throughout. A huge well done to everyone involved! Team captain Bradley commented ‘Having to watch the last game which would decide our position made the whole team nervous. It was very tense!’ Team player Zack said ‘I was praying we would win, because I knew how close the top 4 were!’
Friday 16th November 2018 was Children in Need so Class 5 had over 150 cakes to decorate! The Pudsey colouring competition had lots of entries, so it was hard to choose the winners. I’m sure you can see from the photos that the winning designs were superb. Well done! A wonderful week in school with our work on Anti-Bullying and the theme ‘Respect’ and as an added bonus we raised £260.89 for Children in Need. Thank you to everyone for your support!
All classes have been doing lots of work about Anti-Bullying and they shared this in a special whole school assembly. There were some great poems and lots of brilliant discussions. We had a famous gatecrasher in our assembly – Pudsey! He was very impressed by all of the hard work and enjoyed listening to what had been happening.
