Year 2 pupils have been fascinated by the life story of Mary Seacole, particularly her resilience in overcoming challenging situations and her contribution to the nursing profession. Pupils have completed excellent work that shows empathy and understanding.
Our classroom and corridor displays reflect the PSHE we do throughout our school through a variety of curriculum subjects, and in a variety of ways.
Here are a few examples:
Kerry from Operation Encompass visited Year 4 yesterday, to teach pupils about healthy friendships and relationships through discussing ground rules, keeping safe, contract of behaviour, and confidentiality.
Pupils had great ideas about the qualities that they thought a good friend should have.
Some of them said, ‘I enjoyed that she was really friendly and taught us how to be a good friend’, and ‘I learnt that you need to be kind to others because it’s not fair to be mean’.
We are teaming up with Age Concern Tyneside South to send a little community Christmas cheer to some of our South Tyneside residents. Our pupils have made Christmas designs which will be delivered via Age Concern. We think they look very Christmassy!
The children used their creativity to design Wellbeing Bubbles as part of Artsmark Celebration week. They had to think about activities that made them feel good, using the five senses as their inspiration. There were some fantastic ideas, here are some of their brilliant designs.
Some of our Year 1 pupils were having fun in the allotment yesterday. They enjoyed using the gardening tools to tidy the raised beds. Next week they should be ready to plant some bulbs for the Spring.
A big thank you for all of your charitable donations for non-uniform day!
Our School Council met online recently via Google Teams, and unanimously decided that they would like the £520 that was raised to be shared out between three charities:
the Anti-Bullying Alliance, Children In Need, and Show Racism the Red Card. We’re sure your donations will be put to good use.
The children were excited to learn about Katherine Johnson as part of Black History Week. They worked really hard to research this inspirational figure and produced some amazing biographies as a result. They finished the week with a discussion about equality and fairness. Inspired by Show Racism the Red Card, they enjoyed writing positive statements that serve as a reminder to treat everyone with the respect and kindness.
Y3W have been participating in Black History Week and have been reading Little People, Big Dreams – Rosa Parks.
On non-uniform day when we supported Children In Need and Show Racism the Red Card, pupils discussed how racism is never acceptable and wrote statements on red and green ‘referee’ cards.
I will never judge a person by the colour of their skin.
Hello everyone, we hope you’re all doing well.
We’d like you to look at o-e phone home. This sound has been sent home already so you can read the words and look at the sound card. There’s also a video to support your learning:
As an extra challenge, try writing down the o-e words. Don’t forget to use Fred fingers to help you sound words out.
For English, we would like you to complete the activities on pages 4 and 5 which focus on noun phrases. This is building on yesterday’s work about nouns and adjectives. We have also used noun phrases in school when writing setting and character descriptions.
Today’s activities on pages 4 and 5 are further practice using a number line to add and subtract.
United against bullying
The theme for this year’s anti-bullying week is United Against Bullying. Watch the video to find out more information.
In your learning pack there is a jigsaw piece for you to write a pledge, something you will do to help stop bullying. On the jigsaw piece write your sentence which could be:
My class chooses to unite against bullying/name calling/bullying so I will…
Then explain what you will do play your part such as treating everyone with respect or tell a teacher if you hear someone saying something unkind.
You can then decorate your puzzle piece to make it stand out.
We love seeing the work you have been doing so remember to send it in to email@example.com.
