Being part of Wessington Primary School is more than just coming to school, so on this page we celebrate everything that makes us special.
Year 3 Recycling 2019
In Year 3 we have been thinking carefully about the amount of plastic we use and how it effects our environment. Our children have carefully considered how we can reduce and recycle our waste and have developed some fantastic ideas. We used recycled materials to create fish cushions to represent fish that are impacted by pollution and have written and posted letters to McDonalds, to encourage them to rethink about their Happy Meal prizes. Some of our Year 3 children have continued taking pollution seriously outside of school and have tried to clean up their local community. Our world is in safe hands!
Easter Egg Decorating 2019
The whole school joined in to celebrate Easter by decorating eggs in class for the annual competition.
Careers Week 2019
We’ve had a fantastic week learning about different careers. A huge thank you to all of our visitors who gave up their time to come into school and speak to us. We’ve learned lots about what it’s like to be a Business Advisor, Doctor, Councillor, Life Guard and Housing Officer. Year 6 children also visited Sunderland University to find out more about Higher Education.
Cinderella Rockafella Pantomime
The KS2 classes blew the school and their families away with 4 amazing productions of the entertaining pantomime Cinderella Rockafella. The children and staff gave up their own time to learn lines and attend practices and there were some truly memorable performances. Well done to everyone involved and a big thank you to those that attended.
WW1 Commemorative Banner
We were honoured for our Year 6 to be chosen to come together with four other Sunderland schools to create visual reminders of the First World War. We worked with a creative organisation to help produce a banner based on our thoughts and impressions of the First World War, which are now on display at Sunderland Winter Gardens until the end of November.
More information can be found here.
The whole school had a spooktacular time at our Halloween disco with the best dressed going home with a prize.
Ineos Go Run For Fun
Both Year 3 and Year 5 went along to Silksworth Sports Complex to take part in the Ineos Go Run For Fun campaign. Both classes took on a challenging 2k run with twists, turns and a lot of hills with a whole host of schools from across Sunderland. We are so proud of the children for doing their best to complete the run and not giving up.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Our Macmillan Coffee Morning was a huge success!! With children, staff and families enjoying the lovely selection of cakes, pies and cookies on offer. Thank you to Hayley and all the other volunteers for their hard work and to everyone who baked or brought along goodies.
Safe and Sound Holiday Club
During 3 weeks of the holidays over 70 of our children took part in our Safe and Sound Holiday Club, they took part in all kinds of activities, including dancing, cookery and arts and crafts as well as loads of fun and games with Michael, Mr Bain and Miss Marshall.
On Tuesday night we invited our wonderful families into the school to take part in crazy fun and games as part of our family night, which ended with some questionable scoring and one unlucky member of staff getting a gunge shower! Keep your eyes peeled for the next one.
Young Achievers Awards Night
Recently our anti-bullying team were recognised by the Young Achievers Service as being the best in their age group across the city.
Some of our wonderful anti-bullying team, along with staff, were invited to the Stadium of Light for the awards night where we were ecstatic to find out we had won! We are extremely proud of everything the children in the team have achieved and the amount of hard work they have put in to make sure their ideas have been implemented across the school.
After three days off school due to the snow; a group of staff, their children and friends as well as one eager parent helped clear the school yard and paths on Sunday morning to make it safe for the school to open again on Monday.
During the 3 snow days we set a challenge to our families – get your hats and gloves on and see who could build the best snowman. Children of all ages across the school (and staff too) loved spending time with their families in the snow, having fun building their fantastic creations.
