Congratulations to all the new 'Science Ambassadors' who completed their training today, led by Dr Lorraine Coghill from Durham University and the Ogden Trust. We welcomed year 4/5 pupils from some of our Ogden Partnership schools to St Matthew's, to complete their training alongside some of our year 5 pupils. During the day, they worked to develop skills in communication, teamwork, scientific investigation and presentation. We look forward to seeing all of the work they do in their schools to promote science and we hope to get together in the autumn term to plan some more activities for next year.

Look at this extract from our school's log book dating back to 1953! Our log books go back as far as 1876 and provide an extraordinary insight into the school's development and role within the Prudhoe community. It's fascinating to read in this extract about the 3 day holiday for the Queen's coronation and the trip to the Rio cinema in town to watch the 'Crowning of the Queen' a month after the event! How times have changed!

The children were delighted to be making their own 21st century history today!
Love Prudhoe
