Year 6 Hockey

For the past four weeks, year 6 have been having fun learning to play hockey with a coach. They’ve learned to dribble, stop and pass the ball, and are beginning to play small sided games.

Year 6 RAP

On Wednesday 3rd October, Year 6 visited South Shields’ Fire Station to take part in RAP. RAP stands for Reducing Accidents at Play. As Year 6 become more independent, it is important that they know how to keep safe in different situations. They all visited seven scenarios and learnt vital information to help them as they do more on their own.

Have a look at some of the photos and ask your child all about them.

 

Word Millionaires

We were delighted today to present these three pupils with very prestigious ‘Word Millionaire’ trophies in assembly. Amie, Evie and Ashlee have been such enthusiastic and dedicated readers, both in and out of school that they have read over one million words through our Accelerated Reader program. We are very proud of them and hope to be awarding more Word Millionaires soon.

A Visit from Zoe Emma Scott

The whole school will be spending some time working with local artist Zoe Emma Scott. This afternoon, it was the turn of Y6A.

The children spent some time thinking of signs of Spring before creating a Springtime picture.

First, they sketched in pencil, then outlined in black pen before painting and adding texture. Zoe was on hand to give expert advice and the children grew in confidence and skills as the afternoon went on. Everyone had a great time and we have many budding artists.

Look out for our finished pieces…..
