Being part of Wessington Primary School is more than just coming to school, so on this page we celebrate everything that makes us special.
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.
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.
Saving The World – One Bottle at a Time
The whole school took part in our recycling project, by reinventing their used plastic bottles and designing posters, as you can see our children came up with some brilliant ideas and the top entries received prizes.
This years summer fayre was a massive success!! The children had a wonderful time!! Especially when it came to using their water pistols on the grown ups…
The whole school enjoyed the annual sports day with classes competing against each other in 40m sprints, javelin, space hopper, sack and egg & spoon races.
Olympic Athlete Visit
We were visited by Laura Samuels, an Team GB Olympian! She came and spoke to us about her experiences and the benefits of staying fit and healthy, she even got the whole school to take part in some elite level training.
Visit From The Super Splash Heroes
This week we had a visit from The Super Splash Heroes who told us how to be water wise and try to save as much water as possible. The whole school enjoyed the performance and then took part in workshops with the heroes.
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.
Royal Wedding Tea Party
On Friday afternoon, to celebrate the royal wedding, the whole school took to the field to take part in a wide range of activities including: wedding dancing, a wedding photo booth and a patriotic music lesson.
As you can see the children loved their time outside in the beautiful weather.
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.
Easter Egg Competition 2018
On Wednesday, the whole school came together to decorate their eggs for this years egg decorating competition. The children loved working on their creations and there were some amazing results!
Sports Relief 2018
The whole school helped raise approximately £150 for Sports Relief to continue their fantastic work by coming in dressed in sports clothes. We also took part in sports based activities all day including: Fitblast sessions, mathsercise, ukulele line dancing and year 5 and 6 took part in gymnastics with our coach Joe.
World Book Day
The whole school and staff loved coming into school dressed as characters from their favourite books. The children had fun with classroom based book activities taking place as well as the older children reading with the younger ones.
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.
Harry Potter Day
Back in September the weather may have stopped our family picnic but the children still had an amazing Harry Potter Day! They met the Hogwarts Owls who loved our children and would only do what the children asked them to do! Then they have laughed until their tummies hurt at the magic show on the afternoon! A brilliant day all round.
