'Come and See' Morning


During our 'Come and See' morning, our class worked to understand and use positional language to follow or direct.  We followed directions to find hidden treasure and then designed our own maps and wrote our own directions.  Many thanks to the parents who were able to join us.

Non-Uniform Day


On our non-uniform day, we either dressed as Disney characters or wore favourite clothes of our own choice.  As a foreit for not wearing uniform, we were asked to bring in a suitable prize for the tombola stall at our school fair.  Thank you to everyone who took part and parents/carers who kindly sent in donations.  We do hope you will be able to join us at the fair on Friday, 5 July 2019, 1.30 pm - 3.00 pm.



Letters to Newcastle City Council


Recently our class decided that we should write to Newcastle City Council to express our concern at the lack of safety provision at Newburn Countryside Park.  In particular, some of us had noticed that lifebuoys were missing and were worried that none would be available in an emergency, should someone fall into the river.  Fortunately, these were replaced as we started composing our letters but we felt that it would still be good to make some helpful suggestions regarding signage to warn people of potential dangers.  We feel really passionate about keeping Newburn safe for everyone and hope that the Council will consider our ideas favourably.

Howard Carter Diaries


As part of our topic on ancient Egypt, we each designed our very own diary in a style Howard Carter might have chosen to record his findings on discovering the tomb of the pharoah Tutankhamun in 1922.  We then wrote diary entries as Howard Carter, sharing the excitement of discovering the tomb with all its wonderful artefacts and describing some of the treasures he found.
