Due to the timing of the announcement of school closures last night, remote learning will start from tomorrow, Wednesday 6th January. This is to enable teachers to adapt existing planning to ensure a high quality remote learning experience for all children. As previously, weekly plans will be posted both on the website and on Google Classroom with the specific information for each lesson posted daily in the classroom. For today, we would encourage the children to read for pleasure, access Times Table Rockstars and pursue their own interests while they process the change in their routine.
Thank you for your on-going support.

Year 5 visited the Gurdwara in South Shields as part of their R.E. topic on Sikhism. They were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed their visit. The children highly recommend everyone to visit.
Year 5 were invited by Creative Seed to make flags which will be part of the Custom House’s 25th Anniversary. The children designed their music themed flags and then created them using silk and silk paints. It was fun and very messy! Look out for them when the celebrations begin!
As part of their “Geography of Food” topic, Year 5 were invited to Morrisons to find out about how far food travels before it arrives on the shelves. This is known as “Food Miles”. Ian showed the children around the store and told them how important it is to make it clear to customers where the fresh food has come from. They discovered that some fruit and vegetables were imported from as far away as Kenya, Israel and South Africa. The class collected some items in a basket and Sebi and Zahra scanned the items through the till! Billy and Sian were also shown how to make a pizza (which the children took back to school to eat). The staff made Year 5 feel very welcome and it was the ideal way to finish off their geography topic.
Year 5 had the exciting opportunity to meet Michael Rosen this week. Michael, who was visiting The Word, told the children lots of interesting stories and recited some of his well-known poems. Events like this are incredibly beneficial for the children and helps to inspire them to find their own inner poet!
Year 5 and 6 visited the Urban Factory in Hebburn.
We did cheerleading, gymnastics and parkour.
Thank you to Kimberley, Stacey and Corey for a fantastic afternoon!
