Penguin Parade

Thanks to the WOW ( Women of the Woodbine) group for organising our fantastic sponsored walk. The whole school dressed in their penguin masks walked all the way to the park, around the lake and back to school. Lynne our lovely cook had made every ‘penguin’ a fishy biscuit when we arrived  back at school.

We can’t wait to find out how much money we have raised for new books and gardening equipment.

Anyone who would like to join the group and help towards our next project ( the  South Tyneside summer parade)  is more than welcome. Please just ask any member of staff or give Mrs Burden a call.

British Science Week 2017

Last week we all took part in British Science Week 2017.

Year 6 visited Harton Tech to work in the labs and improve their knowledge of light and sound.

We also welcomed ‘Technology Tom’ Mulholland back to school where he put on some great engineering workshops for Years 2 and 5, before treating the whole school to some fantastic and entertaining science shows in the afternoon.

A special thank you to all the Key Stage 2 parents who came in to enjoy the show.

Everybody had a great week!



Here is a link to find out about some of the things the Women of the Woodbine have been up to .

Any one who would like to find out more about the group please contact school or one of the group themselves. We are always looking for more friends to join the WOW group.

Visiting Jarrow Town Hall


In the Mayor’s chamber.

Last Monday, our school council were given a guided tour of Jarrow Town Hall by the Mayor and Mayoress of South Tyneside. They found out about the history of the Town Hall, its role in the Jarrow Crusades and, most importantly, they got to quiz the Mayor about real life politics. They were even allowed to hold his VERY expensive gold chains!
