Scroll down to see some of the amazing things we’ve been up to in and out of class as well as homework and topic content.
2018 – 19
World Book Day
Year 5 had a fabulous day at the Hoops for Health basketball tournament which was held in association with the Newcastle Eagles Basketball Team. All their hard work in training paid off as we won a place in the semi-final! Unfortunately, we were unlucky in the penalty shoot-out but we all agreed we had an amazing time. We are all extremely proud of our fantastic children. Well done year 5!
Year 5 had an amazing time with the Newcastle Eagles learning how to play basketball. After coaching, they took part in a Sunderland schools basketball tournament. They did Wessington proud after playing in the semi-finals but were just pipped to the post in the last game.
Four Newcastle Eagles players visited year 5 and 6 and shared their knowledge of exercise and healthy eating. They also played some fabulous games with everyone.
Year 5 visited the Silksworth Tennis Centre to take part in the ‘Sunderland Schools Sports Leader’ training. They had a wonderful time learning about new ideas for games on the playground, how to work as part of a team as well as the science behind exercising and keeping fit. Well done to everyone who took part and we look forward to seeing some of the games next break-time!
Year 5 Art Visit
Year 5 had a wonderful visit to the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle. As part of their science topic, which looked at plants and plant reproduction, they visited the gallery to see the famous ‘Enchanted Garden’ display. Activities included producing art work themselves based on a water colour and exploring the beautiful paintings to see how nature can be painted in different ways.
