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 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!

Engineering club have been meeting every Thursday and working really hard to design and build a working vehicle! In the final session, children got the chance to finish and test their vehicles in three tests: a straight line challenge, a weight challenge and a race! The winners’ vehicle has been kept in school to compete in a finals challenge later in the year. The next group for Engineering club starts on 31st January.
Year 5 had the honour of being the first school children to visit the newly opened St Hilda’s Pit in South Shields. They were shown around by two ex-miners who told them all about life as a miner, and how important the mines were to our town. The class had the opportunity to squeeze into a cage which would have taken miners down to the coal face – more than 300 metres underground! The visit enabled everyone to understand what they had learned in class, and to handle real artefacts.
