Year 2 have been working with dance teacher Charlotte Rowe form Lumsdale Theatre Arts. They have been learning a new dance style each week – Hip Hop, Line Dancing, Jazz, Lyrical and Creative. A selection of children were chosen to take part in the South Tyneside Dance Festival. They performed a dance created by Charlotte to the music “One step Closer” by S Club Juniors. It was the first time the children had performed at the Customs House, on stage, in front of a live audience and they were fantastic. Everyone at Marine Park is so proud of them. Well done Team Marine!
Jayden was chosen as Dance Captain. He had the very important job of keeping everyone in time and remembering all the steps.
We are celebrating World Book Week! Come in and choose a book for £1!
On Wednesday afternoon, Year 1 and 2 got the chance to be Systems Engineers! We learned all about what kind of job this is, and what a Systems Engineer does. We then had to work together in teams to build a marble run, just like real engineers! Our challenge was to keep the marble rolling for as long as possible, linking pieces together, testing and changing to make the best, longest marble run. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Miss Jordan’s and Miss Dooley’s Literacy groups visited the Word, to listen to stories. Since it is October, we listened to spooky stories, to do with Halloween! We drew boggarts, from one of the stories. We also learned a bit of Spanish from one spooky story called Los Gatos Black. We learned a bit about the Day of the Dead, and made skeleton masks to celebrate this!
We had a great time, and are looking forward to the next visit.
Miss Dooley’s and Miss Jordan’s Literacy groups made potions this week, from some spooky instructions. We had to use bone dust, pond water, sea serpent eyeballs, pixie dust, black cobweb, dragon’s blood and bug slime to make a potion to make you smile. We loved it, and then we wrote some amazing instructions of our own for how to make this potion.
