Visit this section of our website to see what year 6 have been up to!

Willington’s Hero

Year 6 had a visit by archivists from the Durham County Council Record Office and Durham Light Inventory on Thursday 25th January. The class became historical researchers for the day to find out about the life and achievements of George Burdon McKean (a soldier, born in Willington, who won the Victoria Cross in World War 1). It is the hundredth anniversary of his courageous act in April and he will be commemorated with a flagstone outside the library here in Willington. The children were lucky enough to  examine a range of historical artifacts and sources. They even had to wear gloves to help   preserve these fascinating objects. The class had a fantastic day and they learned a lot from what was a thoroughly enjoyable experience

Sculpture Week

We were very proud to see our Mayan coil pots on display in the school’s sculpture exhibition. Lot’s of parents and relatives came to view our creations.

Safety Carousel 2017

Year 6 attended a multi-agency safety event at The Work place this week which was organised by Durham Fire and Rescue Service. We were 1 of 168 schools taking part. The event provided an interactive way of teaching young people to become aware of their personal safety and give advice about how to react responsibly in dangerous situations. They also inform all of those who took part about wider safety matters to help create a safer  community environment.  It provides young   people with the life skills to keep themselves and others safe in the future. The fire service along with other agencies ran fun activities to promote safety. Other agencies involved in this year’s event were Durham County Council – Road Safety, Durham Constabulary – Cyber bullying, Northern Power Grid –   Electricity safety,  Northern Gas Networks – Gas Safety and RNLI – Water safety.

Student Council Elections
