‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term B

Week Six


This week the children have been getting to grips with adding and subtracting fractions as well as creating the eggcellent decorated eggs for today's Easter Egg Competition. 


Yesterday we had a fantastic writing workshop at the Live Theatre and the children returned to school buzzing with ideas to complete the stories.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for you support this term. Have a lovely Easter!

Kind regards

Miss Croll

Happy Mothers' Day

Week Three


We have been completely inspired this week with art. John Quinn worked with the children on Monday morning and invited the children to look at what we normally take for granted differently. From the hall we went into the bushcraft area and did some more sketches and jottings.


On Thursday morning, we went to see the Angel of the North and many of the children had not seen it up close before. The children took lots of photographs from different angles and sketched the angel using viewfinders. From the angel, we travelled to Saltwell Park where the children were once again inspired by trees. 


Little picking in the local area was the order of the day on Friday morning for the Big British Clean up.


Wow! Where did that week go?


Have a lovely weekend!

Week Two


What a fantastic day our Year 5s had at Newburn Leisure Centre on Thursday. The children had ten tasks to complete and they never stopped.

Week One


This week Year 5 had a one off music lesson with Mr. Rudkin where the children revisited the ukulele. It was fantastic to see how much the children had remembered and before long they were using the cords F,C and G7 to play 'Johnny Be Good'. I thoroughly enjoyed joining in too.


In Maths, the children have been developing their knowledge of fractions, exploring equivalent fractions as well as improper and mixed number too.


Thursday we celebrated the 25th anniversary of World Book Day and it was a delight to see all of the children dressed up. They produced some excellent book reviews and summaries of their favourite stories and some even fell into a book and became part of the plot.
