Whitburn Village Primary School were represented by children in nursery, year one. year three and year six in this year’s Whitburn’s Got Talent contest. The children were chosen through a vote after completing auditions in school. Although they didn’t win on the night, we think they are brilliant. Well done to all the children who shared their talents.
As part of Child Safety Week, Police Community Support Officer Mark Brown visited school to deliver an assembly to the children. During the assembly, he spoke to the children about stranger danger, road safety and keeping safe on bikes.
Child Safety Week (4 – 10 June)
As part of Child Safety Week, South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Board, in partnership with South Tyneside Council and multi-agency partners, is launching a campaign ‘Safe children – together we have got this’. This includes a series of 30 events running in Children’s Centres across South Tyneside to help promote child safety and accident prevention messages.
Accidents and injuries can occur in many areas of day-to-day life, from falls, road safety, pet safety, dangers with cooking and hot drinks, internal burns from batteries, accidental poisoning, and choking from blind cords, small toys or nappy sacks.
Accidents and injuries can be prevented.

We had a lovely day celebrating the Royal Wedding. Nursery children enjoyed a garden party while Reception practised their folding and cutting skills to make bunting. Year One halved and quartered party food to enjoy during a street party and Year Two wrote Royal poems and designed wedding outfits. Year Three completed a special quiz and designed wedding dresses while Year Four made crowns or fascinators and enjoyed a Royal party. Year Five completed a special maths challenge involving decimal numbers and made bunting and flags for their Royal picnic. Year Six designed wedding gifts and had a special trip to the park to thank the children for their hard work and attitude during this busy week.
When the police came in they covered e-safety perfectly. They told us what we can access and what we can’t. We understood everything that they said. P.C. Wilkinson told us about bullying and what you should do when you are getting bullied. He gave us good advice and tips. Whatever you do online it will always leave a cyber footprint.
Last week, the police visited Year Six to do an e-safety talk. They went through how to keep safe online and what to do if you aren’t safe. They told us which websites, apps and games are safe to use and gave us real life situations to solve. The police explained the dangers of the internet and the bits most of us can’t live without. They made it really fun and we all enjoyed it.
Whitburn Village Primary was invaded by book characters this week. We all enjoyed reading and sharing stories together. Thank you to everyone who helped with the costumes. We think the children looked amazing.
A letter will be going out tonight regarding the E-Safety presentation on Wednesday 7th March at 5.00pm.
We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 8th March. Children are invited to dress up as their favourite book character. Thank you.
