Michelle, who works in the lab for Northumbrian Water, came into year 6 to do some experiments. She taught us about what to not put down the toilet and the sink. We learned about the toilet water cycle and that it is healthy. We also conducted experiments about what happened to certain materials that were put down the toilet. We talked about littering and the environment and we have filled an eco-brick with non-recyclable plastics in school too. We learned a lot – but it was fun too. Phoebe, Y6
We were lucky to receive a visit from some of the players from South Shields F.C. who came to speak to us in an assembly. We had the opportunity to ask the players lots of questions about football, their training and their interests. Year five and six pupils received tickets for the match against Basford United on the 13th April. We hope that lots of the pupils go along to cheer the team on in their quest for promotion.
Years five and six recently took part in ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ workshops. We learned all about what racism is and why we should respect the differences between people. As well as learning a lot, we also took part in a really fun sports session. The workshops were really useful and we’ve remembered to always consider the magic question – ‘How do I know?’.
Several children visited Whitburn Winter Festival this year to sing carols and enjoy the festivities. The children enjoyed performing and the chocolate treats they received afterwards. We would like to thank the children and their families for being such great representatives for our school. Well done everyone.
We started the morning with a lovely Harvest Assembly. Mrs Grieveson led the school in singing some uplifting songs about harvest and we thought about what harvest is and how we can help others at harvest time. We are very grateful to all of the families who have donated to our harvest collection which will be delivered to Hope and Hospitality.
