Match Report by Owen P (Year 6)

On Thursday 16th November, Toner were meant to have two games but St James unfortunately were unable to play, so we only had the one game.

We played Hebburn Lakes B team. We played very well, scoring 8 and conceding 0. These were the scorers: Connor R (3), Jordan (1), Marcus (1), all in Year 5. The Year 6 scorers: Owen R (1), Connor C (1) and Jayden (1). Making their debuts were Corey and Jayden.

Well played Toner!

Year 2 Youtubers!

Here in year 2, we’ve been working super hard in our English lessons.

We decided that the teachers, the parents and the WORLD, needed to learn about Minecraft!

We spent one week looking at Non-Chronological reports and seeing what we needed to include in our own, we practised using conjunctions and sorting information under sub-headings.

Then we planned and wrote our Minecraft reports. Now, as serious Youtubers, we had to make sure we edited and improved our work…the grown ups wouldn’t want to see any mistakes!

Finally, this week we’ve been reading our reports out loud. We had to use expression as the best Youtubers are exciting and not boring! Today we made our videos. I was impresses by all of the children’s efforts and I know they really enjoyed it, but they’re most excited about everyone watching them!

Here are the Youtube links, you are the only people able to view our videos as you’ve visited our website. It’s our first attempt so please give us some encouragement. (It’s also the first time I’ve fathomed out how to upload videos on here too!)

Armistice Day

Last year we took the school council to the armistice day service in Monkton Village.  This year the service is on Saturday. (11.11.17)  This is always a moving and poignant service and I would encourage as many of you to attend as possible.  The service will begin at 11am at the cenotaph.

The Soldier

IF I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by the suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
