Our new display boards in the Community Room have been populated with the work of our hardworking pupils.

Y4L were learning that there are rules for visiting the allotment in order to keep it a safe and rewarding experience for everyone.
We agreed that we should always walk in the allotment, wear gloves when litter picking or digging the soil, and act respectfully towards the environment.
We had a great time exploring!
We are delighted to support South Tyneside Council in their commitment to raising awareness of climate change in the borough. Their toolkit will support staff in teaching our pupils about environmental awareness and climate change.

Y5B repotted some leek plants, then placed them in the polytunnel. Pupils were fascinated by what was growing in there. They sniffed the herbs: mint, thyme and rosemary in the raised beds. Everyone loved seeing how much the bulbs they had planted in Year 4 had grown.
We’ve had an amazing day celebrating Harton Primary School’s 10th birthday, and raising money for Red Nose Day.
We’ve watched a video featuring special guests, decorated party bags and biscuits, danced to music piped through the tannoy throughout the day, enjoyed a massive whole school Harton Primary quiz created by Mr Forster, taken part in Red Nose Day activities, and had a party tea. We even had a cake to take home, courtesy of our Cook.
We all know how important mental health and wellbeing are, so a big thank you to the NEU Help a Child to Learn Foundation, and to Thompson and Morgan for their support. Their donations have enabled us to give a Wellbeing Bag, complete with a range of resources to support wellbeing, to all of our pupils.
There’s something for everyone inside. Welcome back!
We have seen lots of fabulous examples of Health, Wellbeing and Relationships work across school, from our pupils engaged in remote learning and those pupils in school.
Some pupils in KS1 have been practising mindfulness by joining in with online story yoga, and also learning about what makes them special. Others have been learning about money, and having an awareness of saving money for something they need or would like.
In KS2, some classes have been thinking about what makes them happy, and their thoughts on this are all very unique. Researching issues facing cocoa farmers in Ghana and how organisations like Fairtrade are trying to improve working conditions and environment, has produced some interesting debate from some classes. Other pupils have created very informative posters based upon their awareness of basic first aid to do with nose bleeds.
Our Year 6 pupils have been looking at careers and potential jobs for the future, discussing things that might lead them to choose a certain job or career.
Year 4 have been spreading positivity and good news in their Google Meets on a Friday afternoon.
Friday 15th’s ‘Feelgood Friday’ gave our pupils the opportunity to share wonderful posters they had made on the theme of Good News, Resilience, Feeling Grateful, or something that made them feel happy. This was followed by our weekly Harton postcard awards, recognising pupil’s amazing endeavours and positive attributes.
For Friday 22nd ‘Feelgood Friday’, pupils took part in an online vote to register which activity they would like to participate in during our Google Meet – a little bit of fun to end the week.
For next week’s Meet, maybe our pupils could choose the categories for the vote!
