Durham Cathedral visit

On Wednesday 14th March, year four took part in a celebration of singing with several other South Tyneside schools. The children have been learning a range of songs as part of the Durham Chorister’s Music Outreach Programme and were incredibly lucky to be able to perform them at the Cathedral. The children’s hard work certainly paid off and they sang beautifully. The setting for the performance was breath taking and the children loved the experience. They even made Mrs Gibson cry! A very big ‘well done’ to the whole class.

Slime for the camera!

Year 4 had fun at Harton Technology College as we continued our adventures in science following British Science Week.

To start their Solids, Liquids and Gases topic off with a bang, Year 4 were shown how to use the Bunsen burners to rapidly boil and evaporate liquids before creating slime from PVA glue and borax.

As you can see, the children were amazed to be working in a real science lab and they really showed off their scientific thinking skills. Well done, Year 4!

PS – Year 5 will be heading up there soon to see some forces in action…
