Our new display boards in the Community Room have been populated with the work of our hardworking pupils.
Healthy Schools Evidence
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.
Toffee, our attendance bear, joined us in the allotment today. We took advantage of the beautiful weather to replant some of our lettuce seeds into bigger pots. We can’t wait to see them grow!
Kerry Leask from Operation Encompass came into Year 6 today to teach about Emotions and Empathy. We know who we can contact if we have worries or uncomfortable feelings.
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 enjoyed planting different seeds this afternoon including broccoli, courgette, leeks and turnip. We can keep an eye on them in our classroom until the weather gets warmer. Fingers crossed we can transfer the plants into our raised beds and look forward to lots of lovely vegetables!
