Over the last few weeks, the children have been finding out about Remembrance Day. They have been learning about why Remembrance Day is important and why it is commemorated. Each child made their own poppy. The poppies were displayed on the classroom window. Here are some photo of our lovely displays.
Our children are amazing!

A huge congratulations to Phoebe Ofosu and Joe Roberts in Y6F for being the first children in the school to achieve AR awards this year. Phoebe has become our first Word Millionaire and has read over 1,000,000 words since September and Joe has become our first half-millionaire by reading over 500,000 words. Joe is also now extremely close to becoming a Word Millionaire.
Both children have shown such dedication to their reading this year and I love to hear about the novels they’re reading and see their enthusiasm.
Who will be next to achieve an AR award?
Well done to the children who participated in October’s Reading Challenge.

Friday saw an amazing collection of toiletries, canned and dried foods being brought into school for The South Tyneside Food Bank. Our last Canny Friday is this week (23rd October). We can’t wait to see how many donations we manage to raise for such a worthy cause.
We had so much lovely content we decided to make three separate videos, one for each of our Year-6 classes. Thank you to our wonderful pupils and parents for providing the content – we’re really going to miss you all and we hope you enjoy the videos.
Disclaimer: Some of the sound quality isn’t perfect so you may have to tinker around with the volume throughout the videos.
We are delighted to announce that Harton Primary School has been awarded an Artsmark Silver Award by the Art Council of England! We have only worked towards this award for 4 terms so this is an incredible achievement.
We are very proud this award and look forward developing our creative arts curriculum even further in the future!
The assessor made the following comment about the fantastic opportunities we provide at Harton:
‘It is good to see the progress your school has made in developing the Arts in just 4 terms. A new music scheme has been adopted and some valuable CPD has been given to staff in this and other arts. There have been several successful events and initiatives, including your Arts week, your Year 2 Heritage Learning Project and your Pen Pal Portrait Project, making some good links with other settings and establishing partnerships with arts providers and organisations.’
