WOW Week

Our children from year 1 to year 6, took part in 'World of Work Week' this week with Julie Scott from North Tyneside Learning Trust. This culminated in a coffee morning, where parents came in to school to talk to the year 6 children about their jobs. Thank you to all who came; the children really enjoyed their session.

Harvest Festival

Our Harvest Festival assembly was a great success. Each year group performed their harvest festival song and Reverend Pauline Pearson came into school to deliver the assembly. Thank you for your donations of food, we will be delivering them to Brunswick food bank and I know they will be very appreciative.
One of our focuses this half term is art. In year 4 the children have been creating their very own collages. I'm sure you will agree that their artwork is very impressive.
