Year 6 Step Back in Time | June 27, 2022

The children in a class setting at Beamish.

Year 6 visited Beamish recently. Here is an account of the day, written by Adnan in 6H:

“When we first arrived at we went on a tram. It was really cool and a favourite part was how we got to the top deck of the bus seats. There was no roof and we all loved waving at the people walking.

Our destination was the town and we soon got there. It was amazing! My favourite part of the town was the sweet shop. The smell was too good to be true. We even got to watch them make sweets. Then we were evacuated to the farm. There were lots of animals and an Anderson Shelter.

We had our lunch on a field near the farm. On the bus ride home, it was so hot and some people were groaning but we soon arrived back to school. We discussed our favourite parts. My favourite part was the town because I love the old-fashioned things.”

Some Recent Sports updates | June 20, 2022

The boys football team.

Football. A team of boys represented the school in a football festival at the Sunderland Beacon of Light this week. They performed very well, scoring some great goals and showing determination. Well done all! Special mentions to Arafaat for being selected as the player who showed the best attitude from all the schools taking part and to Lucas, who was identified as a player with talent and was invited to attend the Foundation of Light’s development programme.

Cricket. Some of Year 4 took part in a cricket festival at Eppleton Cricket Club this week, developing their skills in bowling, batting and fielding. They focused on technique and also learned about the role of wicket keeper. It was a great morning during which we spotted some cricket talent for next year’s tournaments. Who knows, we may well have the next Ben Stokes in the making!

The Children Visit Derwent Hill 2022 | June 15, 2022

A group of 35 year 5 and 6 children have just returned from a fantastic week at Derwent Hill in the beautiful English Lake District

The children on top of Barrow in the Lake District.

The children had an action packed week with some great outdoor activities including: canoeing, mountain walking, gorge walking and of course the infamous “big swing.” Because the children were completing their John Muir award, they also had the opportunity to visit Blackwood Farm and meet the award-winning farmer, Paul Barnes . This session allowed the children to see what Paul is doing to improve biodiversity and they got involved in a number of conservation tasks to learn about the importance of respecting the natural environment.

It was great to see how our children have pushed themselves to achieve some great things during their visit and have made memories that will stay with them for a long time to come. All children have returned with a new set of skills in confidence, teamwork, communication and a healthy respect for their wider environment.

You can view our Google Photos Album to see loads of photos and videos taken from the week.

Derwent Hill is open to children in year 6 each year and letters will be going out for our June 2023 visit in early September. Any remaining places will then be open to year 5 children.

Year 6 Leavers Assembly 2021 | July 15, 2021

Circumstances have been a little different for the year 6 leaver’s production this year so we have had a go at some film making. We discovered a lot of acting talent that we were unaware of and there are some award winning performances from the children.

They had a great time making the film and learning new skills and with the technical wizardry of Mr Williams we have a film.

We hope you enjoy watching it as much as the children enjoyed making it. They were truly creative.

1. Wow! What A Year! + Dynamite.
2. Memories and Thank Yous.

Race for Life 2021 | May 10, 2021

The nursery children taking part.

On Friday 7th May, the whole school took part in our own Race for Life to support Cancer Research UK . Everyone did so well, receiving a medal and a certificate for taking part. The best bit is that, in total, we raised £839 for Cancer Research!

Well done to everyone and thank you so much for all the kind donations!
