Mini Police - Water Safety


This week, Darren and Rachel from Northumbria Police visited school to discuss water safety with our very own Year 5 'Mini Police'.  We learned the SAFE water safety code to help protect ourselves and others from potential dangers whilst near water:


S - Spot the dangers

A - take Advice

F - go with a Friend or Family member

- learn what to do in an Emergency


Afterwards, Darren and Rachel kindly showed us around their Community Engagement Vehicle.  This is a special van which the police use to travel to different parts of the local area.  It is parked up and used as a meeting place for members of the community to share any concerns they may have.

This week Darren and Rachel came into school to work with some of the Year 5 pupils on checking the speed of cars in the local area. They talked about staying safe and within the law on the road. The group talked about why it is important to check speeds of cars and how it helps keep the area safe. They then went out into the local area to check the speeds of passing cars using the speed gun.  The group enjoyed using the equipment and logging the speeds of cars.

Design and Technology - Save the Rainforest T-shirts


This week we have been working on our Design and Technology skills. We have been researching different textiles and how they are made, designing our own t-shirts for a teddy bear and using our sewing skills to create them.  It has been tricky at times but Mrs Gill has been so impressed with our perseverance when things became challenging. Here are a few photos of what we have done so far...
