A big thank you as all of my class looked super smart in their PE kits. We enjoyed our first Gymnastic session with Heather today. Have a look at us being animals in our warm up!

A great start to the year.


Welcome to year 4!

Dear year4 parents/carers,

We have had a very busy start to year 4 but the children have settled in and are enjoying their time in school! Please find some information about year 4 below:

  • Our PE day for Y4BB this term is a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has full kit (T-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/trainers) which should remain in school until the end of half term. I would also recommend your child brings an outdoor PE kit (jacket and tracksuit bottoms) approaching the autumn and winter. If your child does not have full kit, they cannot participate in PE lessons. Swimming will take place for Y4FD on a Thursday this term and a full swimming kit is needed.
  • Homework will be handed out as and when we feel it is appropriate. Spellings will be handed out on a Monday to be tested the following Monday. All children in year 4 are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12×12 by the end of the academic year. Times table will be given out on a Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday. Please help your child in practicing and remembering all multiplication tables and spellings.
  • Purple home school contact books must be brought into school every single day. Spellings and homework will be outlined in this book. A comment about your child’s reading should also be recorded in this book with a signature.
  • Children are expected to change their library books independently when needed- any day is appropriate.
  • This year the children will explore a range of topics as part of geography and history, beginning with the Anglo Saxons and Celts followed by The Yellow Stone National Park and the Egyptians in the summer term.

Please remember if you have any worries, concerns or want to share some good news from home, the door is always open to arrange to meet with us!

Thank you again for all your support

Miss Bainbridge and Miss Dobbin.



Welcome to Year 6!!

Hello from Mr. Scott and Mrs. McBarron (the year 6 team)

We hope you are all ready and looking forward to your last year at Toner Avenue! We have a very busy year ahead, with lots of challenges and rewards.


P.E. kits are need for Tuesday – Playground Leader Training

Swimming kits are needed for Wednesday – Brinkburn baths (The session finishes at 3 pm so we may be back at school a few minutes late depending on traffic)

Theatre Royal visit Friday 22nd September. ( As we are returning from Newcastle we will be back at school a few minutes late )

R.A.P. event – Monday 9th October South Shields Fire Station  (The session finishes at 3 pm so we may be back at school a few minuted late depending on traffic)

(Aren’t we busy already!!)

As well as concentrating on our Maths and English in preparation for the National test in May we also study different topics each term.

Our topic this term is World War 2, if any family members have any memorabilia, artefacts, pictures, etc linked to the topic we would love to see them and add them to our display.

We are also hoping to get a regular link to Hebburn Comp to further develop the children’s computing and media skills. (fingers crossed!)

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to a great year.

Year 2 Friendship

Hello again everyone!

We’ve been working hard in year two and we just had to show you our web of friendship.

In our English lesson, we talked about what makes a good friend. We sat in a circle with a ball of string. We had to say something nice about someone in the class and pass the ball of the string to them, until everyone had a turn. We had lots of lovely comments.

Then we described our best friend in our books.

Well done year 2!
