Hartlepool Bombardment Art Competition

Our School took part in a local art competition which was held jointly by History of Hartlepool, a local history group, and Hartlepool Borough Council. The competition was linked to the Centennial  Commemoration of the Hartlepool bombardment and gave pupils an opportunity to demonstrate their artistic talent. Entries could be in the form of any art media.


Our children entered into the group category and were awarded 2nd place, which is brilliant.

Prizes were presented during a special award ceremony to which winners and runners up, their parents/carers, and staff from their schools were invited.


Mrs Cooper said "I am really proud of the girls. They showed great dedication with Miss Steels and I on their group piece; designing, sculpting with clay, printing and fabric painting. They should be extremely proud of the skills they have developed and continue to practise these with their amazing new resources."

A selection of entries will also be displayed during the summer term at a public exhibition in the town by the History of Hartlepool Society.


World Book Day

On the 5th of March, 2015, it was World Book Day. To celebrate, we encouraged all children to come to school dressed up as their favourite character from a book or film. Alternatively, the children could also wear yellow as this was Roald Dahl's favourite colour. Throughout the day, all the classes took part in a variety of activities to celebrate books, poems, and reading. Here are a selection of pictures, they all looked fantastic!

Safer Internet Day 2015

On Tuesday 10th February, Grange Primary School recognised Internet Safety Day. Thank you to all the pupils and parents who participated in our 'Stay Safe at Home Survey'. Mrs Musgrave is collating the results from this to plan how we as a school can best support the needs of parents.

Animation: Let's create a better internet together!

National Storytelling Week

As part of our celebration of National Storytelling Week and our celebration of reading for pleasure in school, we held a competition where children were asked to find an unusual place to read and have their photograph taken.

There were lots of fantastic entries of children reading in unusual places, including washing machines, motorbikes, cupboards, fridges and even the dentist’s chair!

A Visit from a Knight

The children at Grange were excited to welcome the gallant knight Sir Paul and his mighty steed Blue, to their school to watch a jousting demonstration on the school field.  This was organised as part of a topic the children had been doing this term, ‘Do dragons exist?

After they had watched the show, they then went into the school hall for a medieval banquet, where they were all dressed in clothes from the era.
