Year 4 are spreading The Word…

This Wednesday, Year 4 became the first children EVER to set foot inside South Shields’ brand new 21st Century library, The Word. We couldn’t wait to get back to school and tell everyone about the VIP event.

We looked at the hundreds of brand new books, played with the mechanical Lego, learned about local shipwrecks on the giant ipads and were read stories in the magical 3D StoryWorld. We even saw Harry Potter and Professor Dumbledore!

The library opens to the public this Saturday (22nd October) and we can’t wait to get back there.

Meet your new School Council

Last week we had a very exciting time of nominations, speeches and voting at the ballot boxes. The results came in and all of our new school councillors were very popular choices. They are looking forward to working together and representing the views of all the children at Marine Park Primary School.

Persuasive writing

This week in class we are thinking about writing a persuasive argument. We have visited the park to consider why it is important to keep dogs under control. In our Big Write lesson we are going to share our ideas to persuade people to keep their dogs on leads so that everyone can enjoy a visit to the park.



We are always being reminded to keep ourselves safe when we use the Internet. We have looked at behaviour and stranger danger when using any hardware. We made masks to remind us that sometimes we don’t know who is on the Internet so we must never share personal information.


Leaver’s assembly

What a way to end the year. Our whole school community joined together to wish our Y6 all the best for the next step in their journey. We celebrated their successes and achievements whilst enjoying their unique leaver’s DVD.

Proud winners of this years Gladstone Award were Redwana and Joshua.
