Show Racism The Red Card

Year 5 and Year 6 recently took part in workshops to learn about racism.  It was a great day which gave us lots to think about.  One of the highlights of the day was receiving some football training from an ex professional footballer.

Year 4 at The Word

Year 4 were invited to take part in a colourful parade to celebrate the opening of The Word.  Year 4 worked with our friends from Dry Water, Paula and Francis, to design banners using the children’s favourite words.  The banners will be displayed in The Word for the next two weeks.  Please go and share the wonderful work Year 4 have done.image (3) image (1) image (2) image (5) image (4) image (6)

We had a great afternoon at Temple Park today.  Year 6 took part in an indoor athletics competition against other schools in the area and took the bronze medal position.  Everyone had a great time and tried their best in all of their events.

Well done Team Marine!

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.
