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!

500 Word Short Story Winners

We decided to have a competition just like Radio 2 and the children were asked to write their own story using no more than 500 words.

We had some great stories and lots of entries but the final winners were Brandon Hatch, Zeena Khadim, Mariam Bakht, Poppy Humphreys, Nayem Hoque and Tasmim Ahmed

Their prize is a trip to Waterstones in Newcastle to chose a book of their choice and after that cake and a drink.

Well done to everyone who entered the competition.


The Canny Cook comes to Marine Park!

Our friends at the Rotary Club kindly donated the funding to enable the Canny Cook to come into Marine Park.

The whole school is learning about eating healthily and Carolyn ( Canny Cook) showed the children in Years 1-6 some gorgeous recipes they helped cook and of course eat!!

The children learnt so much and tried some new dishes such as chicken chow mein and fajitas.

The recipes are here also so you try the dishes again at home!
