Welcome to our website

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to the Biddick Hall Junior School website.

At our school we believe it is important to form partnerships with parents.We intend to create within school a warm, caring and welcoming atmosphere for pupils, parents and staff.

We aim to produce an atmosphere of industry and purpose in which our children will be happy, secure and enthusiastic about learning.

Year 4 visit Jarrow Hall

Year 4 had a very interesting visit to Jarrow Hall.

We enjoyed finding out about about an Anglo Saxon Village. We found out about the farm and sampled riddle telling and traditional biscuits around the fire in the Grand Hall.

We dressed up as warriors and recreated our own battle.

We told the story of Beowulf and looked for Anglo Saxon treasure.

Year 4 visit All Saint’s Church

Year 4 went for a visit to All Saints Church as part of their RE studies.

Year 3 visit The Word.

This week, Year 3 visited The Word to take part in a Lego WeDo Programming Workshop.  The children thoroughly enjoyed building Lego models and then programming them to make them move.

Year 6 Greek Pots

We have discussed the ways in which we know about people who lived in Ancient Greek times.  Year 6 researched, designed and made Greek pots.  When they are dry, we will be painting and decorating them to show aspects of Ancient Greek life.

Our Change 4 Life Club were invited to take part in a celebration event at Temple Park last week. The children took part in a range of activities led by professional coaches, these included: Gymnastics, Football, Rugby, Skipping, Boxing, Dance and Hula Hooping. Both the children and the staff had a fantastic day and it was lovely to see the children taking part in sport confidently and enthusiastically.

Year 3 Kreative Kitchen

Year 3 Kreative Kitchen

As part of our Healthy Lifestyles Week, children were treated to a Kreative Kitchen workshop where they were able to prepare and eat foods from the Mediterranean. Children in Year 3 had a fantastic time and tried foods they had not tasted before – as you can see from some of the expressions, the olives didn’t go down too well!


On Monday 17th July Year 5 went on a trip to the National Trust property Gibside.

Year 3 Tag Rugby Tournament

Year 3 Tag Rugby Tournament

The bad weather may have cancelled the Year 3 Rugby Festival at Whitburn School but it did not stop us holding our own Rugby Tournament at Biddick Hall Junior School. The children in Year 3 were split into six teams of nine and played against each other in a number of matches, giving them the opportunity to show off the skills learned during their coaching sessions. They battled against the rain and Team 2 were declared the overall winners.
