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 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!
Year 6 were fortunate enough to work alongside The Word, author Tony Wilson and Diane Gray to find out about life in World War 1. As part of this work, the children learned about how Peace Mugs were given out in 1919 to celebrate the end of the war. The children were then given the opportunity to enter a class competition to create a design for their own Year 6 mug. Tia’s design received the most votes and has now been turned into this magnificent mug! Well done Tia!!
As part of the geography topic “Fantastic Forests”, Year 6 visited Sunderland’s Winter Gardens to learn more about rainforests. They took part in a workshop which helped them understand how important forests are to the environment. Once they had a look around the museum, they then went into Mowbray Park to compare the different vegetation and wild life that exists in tropical forests and British woodlands. A trip to the park was also included!!
In science, Year 6 have been investigating the power of electricity.
We discovered we could set wire wool alight by using a 9v battery.
By touching the battery terminals to the wire wool, we created a circuit allowing electricity to flow through the wool. The heat from the electricity burned the wool!
A fantastic two days was had by all.
