On Thursday 6th June all of Year 2 visited Washington Wetland Centre. As part of their Habitats topic in science they took part in three lead activities. They enjoyed pond dipping, a mini beast hunt and a map work session looking at world habitats and adaptions of the creatures living there.They had talks on otters and flamingos. They then had free time to visit the mini beast garden, the duckery, hide and of course the play park. A great time was had by all.
Last Thursday 30 Year 1 children went to a Trigolf tournament where they developed their ball control skills. They learnt how to use a golf club effectively to hit the ball and took part in a variety of activities including competitive target practise, a distance competiton for hitting the ball past a certain target and also a ball control assault course. They had a great time!

Y6 had a fabulous afternoon with explorer and expedition leader Steve Berry to enhance their topic on Mountains of The World.
Local man Steve, is one of the few people in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. His knowledge and experience provides a priceless, first hand experience for the pupils.
They loved hearing his stories and anecdotes about surviving in some of the world’s toughest terrains and his message of ‘anything is possible when you apply your mind’ was inspirational to our young people.
A huge thank you to Steve for talking to our children.
The High 5 netball team were victorious in School Games Finals, which means they are South Tyneside champions and will go onto represent their borough in the North East High 5 Final at The Beacon of Light, Sunderland on the 28th March.
Five Year 5 children were given an exciting opportunity to take part in a workshop at The Word which was a follow up of the Match Day Experience from the South Shields vs Bamber Bridge football game. They watched highlights from the match, practised using their word processing skills to write it up then filmed their report! Children read from autocues while standing in front of green screens to give the impression of real match commentary. They were then shown how footage can be edited with music and special effects. What a great experience!
Year 4 had a fantastic day learning all about Viking life to enhance their history topic. They dressed as fierce Vikings, sampled the food that they would have eaten and made butter and clay pots. They also got to hold real (but blunt) weapons, wrote in runes and tried Viking weaving. What a fantastic day!
Our High 5 netball teams played in the South Tyneside School Games yesterday. The A team won all of their games, winning gold medals and qualifying for the South Tyneside Finals which will take place at the end of February. The B team also played extremely well and just missed out on qualifying, coming a very respectable fourth place.
