This week we invited parents from Nursery up to Year 6 to experience our reading event. Held over 4 days, we showed parents how children in every year group are taught phonics and reading. We have had such positive feedback and would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents who attended and participated in our first parent event: we look forward to running others in the future.
Well done to our Stars of the Week this week!
Congratulations to our Star of the Week winners this week!
The pictures from our visit with Lucy Turner are eventually ready to view! We tried spotty dogs, mountain climbers, push ups and star jumps and it was exhausting! Well done to every single person who took part and tried their hardest. We were extremely proud of everyone!
This week the whole school has celebrated Art Week. Each year group focussed on a different art movement. We each learned about a different art style, some famous artist and create our own piece of fantastic art.
Year 1 Fauvism
Year 2 Pop Art
Year 3 Surrealism
Year 4 Surrealism
Year 5 Cubism
Year 6 Dadaism
The fabulous Anne Malabar from ground works came to visit us to complete a litter pick.
First we had a discussion about how litter affect people and animals…and the world. Then we got into groups of 3/4 and everyone had a job to do. We had a bag holder, a tally keeper and a litter picker. Everyone swapped roles after 8 minutes so we all had a turn.
We only managed to get to the school car park before we saw tonnes of litter. We set to work straight away and hopefully improved the environment around our school.
Once we got back, we counted the tallies and checked who collected the most litter.
Team collected 96 pieces
Team collected 82 pieces
Team 3 collected 110 pieces
team 4 collected 41 pieces
Team 5 collected 78 pieces.
All just from our school car park!
James said he felt guilty that we’ve let our school get this way.
Piper said she felt disgusted.
Maisie felt excited because it was fun to do something nice for our school.
We hope to work with Anne again soon on our next venture! We had a great morning. She was also an expert at learning all of our names.
Today year 3 got to spend their World Book Day vouchers at Waterstones in Newcastle Town centre.
We were welcomed and entertained by Johnny who had us all in the palm of his hand with his storytelling and engrossed with his mind reading talents! (Even the adults too!) The spooky sound effects made such a difference when we were listening to the stories. We can’t wait to visit again, especially when the immersion chair is in place.
Our only regret is that we couldn’t stay any longer as we had to get the metro home. I have to say, we were so proud and impressed with the children’s behaviour. They were absolutely brilliant.
It also made my day to see all of the children reading their books on the metro home. Take a look at some photos below.
We can’t wait to visit again soon.
Today we were able to spend our attendance stars from Autumn 2!
We had so much to choose from and enjoyed spending our well earned stars. Did you know we get a star for every full week we have in school? We were able to choose prizes such as; superhero masks, rubbers, zip bracelets, cars and so much more!
We are so excited for the attendance trolley to come around next time but for now, Miss Little has to rest her feet!
Y3 had their Christmas party yesterday, it was lots of fun.
I loved the games.
I enjoyed musical corners.
I loved building a snowman with toilet roll.
Take a look at our photos below.
Also can we wish you all a very Merry Christmas, thank you for all your support this year. We are looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
The fantastic staff at the Word put on a virtual Christmas quiz for all the schools in South Tyneside. We had a brilliant time in Y3SC and our team ‘the Bouncing Baubles’ scored 27/30!
We particularly enjoyed the music round!
Merry Christmas! 🎄
