Well done to all the children who have raised £107.80 for Comic Relief.
Although Henry had already been named our two newest members needed names. We had a competition in school and we are happy to announce that Tyler T, Finley J and Kye F won that competition.
Meet Hagrid and Gandalf!
Great choices boys!
Welcome to our Seascape Primary School, Henry, Hagrid and Gandalf.
Finally, our new playground equipment is ready and it was worth the wait!
A new challenging addition to our playground ready to take us on so many adventures.
New challenges bring with it risk, so please keep yourselves safe by making sure it is not too crowded and if you need help to ask an adult.
Please can parents supervise pupils on the equipment. Fun brings risk.

This is our kindness tree. Whenever a pupil shows kindness they are given a red balloon and it is displayed on our kindness tree. Well done to those who have already shown so much kindness during our first week back at school.
We have been following some of the Oak National Academy lessons.
One that we particularly enjoyed was the experiment learning about how water is transported in a plant. The children in Year 3 were all given a piece of celery and could choose a food colouring of their choice (red, blue or green).
We watched the Oak National Academy lesson, and then set up our experiments. We left them a week, and then checked out our results. The children who used blue had the best results!
As part of Culture week at school for the past few weeks Year 3 have been learning about Spain.
They looked at the work of Salvador Dali, and then tried to create some simple start-stop animations using Dali inspired animals.
Have a look at some of the start-stop animations we created. We’re pretty impressed, as it was a first attempt!
Sports Day wasn’t quite the same this year.
Instead, the Sports Partnership set up the Virtual Sports Games.
64 schools took part.
There were 5 different sports activities – including keepy ups, throw & catch, target practice, star jumps and balancing.
Overall, Seascape came an impressive 3rd!
Well done everyone!
Reception join in the Fishes and Wishes project.
East Durham Creates have set up a project along with Let’s Create Commissioning Scheme and Durham Heritage Coast. The aim of the project is to get all the family engaged with art.
The project is called ‘Fishes and Wishes’.
At school, our Reception bubble have been getting involved with the project by making lots of small boats and also one big boat, so that they can all sit in together. They are also hoping to sail away to see all their friends they are missing and maybe even find some treasure.
Back in February, Class 9 planted some seeds with the aim of putting them into the school garden after the Easter holidays – they planted carrots, peas, broccoli and potatoes.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, the vegetables didn’t get planted in school, but Miss Bailey took them home to look after them. Every few weeks, she took pictures and emailed them to the children in Class 9, so they could see how they were growing.
Then on Sunday 28th June, the time came to dig up and pick the vegetables.
- a bucket full of potatoes,
- a bag full of peas (with more still growing),
- a bunch of somewhat wonky baby carrots.
The broccoli is still growing, but there are some heads appearing, so it shouldn’t be too much longer!
Check out the pictures!
Perhaps we’ll have even more vegetables when we next plant some tiny seeds!
