Cleveland Police Competition – The Glebe Primary 1st Place Winners

The School Council entered a competition ran by Cleveland Police. The brief was to create a presentation to encourage young people to think about their behaviour in public places. The School Council chose to produce a short film. This was written, acted and produced by the school councillors and filmed by a parent of a child in Year 2. We are very pleased to announce that The Glebe Primary School came first in the multi-media category! As a result, the film will now form part of a national campaign and be shown to schools in the local area. A huge well done to all the school councillors involved.


News & Information

Summer Holidays!

Dear Parents and Carers

I do hope everyone has a restful break during the summer holidays.

We have had another fantastic year in school with so many wonderful events, activities, sporting fixtures and trips. We have gained highly regarded accreditations such as Leading Parent Partnership, Bronze Stonewall Award and Gold Standard Sports Award (again!), to name but a few.

The children leaving Foundation have achieved very good levels of development and are ready for their transition into Key Stage 1. The children in Year 1 completed the phonics test and we were so proud of their attitude and their hard work. Both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children ap-proached all the statutory tests with a positive attitude and the results reflected this.

We are incredibly proud of each and every one of the children and the progress that they continue to make—both personally and academically.

Thank you to all of the parents and carers and the whole Glebe Primary staff who help the children on their journeys.

Sleeping Beauty – The Ugly Truth

This week, the Glebe Primary School was transformed into a West End theatre as we were absolutely dazzled by the talent displayed by our Year 5 and 6 children in their summer performance.

Essentially a forbidden love story, Sleeping Beauty, The Ugly Truth is set in ‘Bella Vista’, a kingdom obsessed with looks, trendy fashions and celebrity gossip. The town falls foul of a witch’s curse and it’s down to a humble gardener, armed only with green fingers and good intentions, to save the day!

With fantastic songs and a hilarious script, this delightful twist on a popular fairy tale hammered home the message that top-notch clothes and hairstyles are no substitute for an honest heart full of love!

The narration, acting, singing and dancing skills on show were nothing short of AMAZING. We defi-nitely witnessed the birth of some future stars!! In addition to this, the whole play was support-ed by the wonderfully powerful singing abilities of our Year 5 children who really did provide fan-tastic depth and volume to the musical numbers. There were few dry eyes in the house as the show ended with the final song absolutely raising the roof!

Well done to all of the children involved and of course a huge THANK YOU to the

KS1 Trips to Preston Park and Redcar Beach

Earlier this week, our Year 2 children visited Preston Park and Redcar beach for their trip. The children had lots of fun looking round the museum, doing a mini-beast hunt and then making artwork on Redcar beach. The children and staff had a lovely time – even if it was a little cold by sea!

Trip to ‘Locomotion’

This week the Y3 children went on a trip to Locomotion in Shildon. They had a fantastic time taking part in workshops about the Steam Age and had an opportunity to explore steam trains. The trip was organised to support the curriculum outside of the classroom.

Everyone had a thoroughly good time and behaved impeccably. Well done Y3!

Foodbank

We received a thoughtful suggestion from one of our parents to collect for the Foodbank at our summer fair. Anyone who donates a food item will receive a raffle ticket and be entered to win a prize. We will start collecting items for the food bank on the morning of the fair but you can also bring the product with you at 3.30pm when the fair opens.

Athletics Event

We had forty children attending a Year 5/6 athletics tournament on Tuesday at Middlesbrough Sports Village. The children’s be-haviour and attitude was fantastic in such blus-tery conditions! We will find out in due course if we have any qualifiers for the next round.
Whatever the outcome, you should all be extremely proud of yourselves.

Summer Fayre Donations

Thank you all for your generous ‘bottle’ donations this week. Next week we are asking for ‘toys and books’ to be donated.

Anyone who does so, may come to school in non-uniform on Friday 25th May.
