I think you would all agree that our children sound AMAZING!
Can’t wait for you all to see our first production!
Wonderful links were maintained as choir members from our class travelled to Darlington in order to participate in a special carol service which brings together members of the College, the local community and the children of Dunn Street. The message of “Giving is better than receiving” resonated strongly with our class having recently participated in our fundraising for Walking With The Wounded.
Alongside other guests, we enjoyed Pass the Parcel and Bingo!! Our singing went down well as the audience enjoyed a scrumptious lunch. When we had finished our lunch, we performed a variety of carols and the poem, “A Christmas Guest”.
This week we transformed the hall into our own Ninja Warrior course, equipped with moving stones, hurdles and super difficult jumps. We all had so much fun and can’t wait to give it another go. Reception class were fantastic: who said P.E. was difficult?
…with Mr Hymers, Kenny the Sax and The Dunn Street Choir…
A wonderful evening of song and music was enjoyed by all at the Hebburn Masonic Lodge. Our choir performed a range of local songs accompanied by the penny whistle, Kenny, Mr Reader and Mr Miller “in a box”!
Local favourites like Bobby Shafto, Weel May the Keelrow, Cushie Butterfield, Waters of Tyne and Blaydon Races were performed alongside more modern pieces like “Autmun Winds” from The Last Ship and the favourite of the evening, “Meet Me On The Corner”.
The night was a great success and we were overwhelmed to receive a total donation of £650 to continue, and enhance, music and performing provision for the pupils of Dunn Street from Gyrwy Lodge.

This year, in Year3/4, we have continued the long held tradition of being taught Penny Whistle by the amazing Kenny Kirsopp.
On the last day of term we invited families of the children along to our celebration assembly so the could enjoy a short performance.
The children were brilliant !
Please click on this link to watch the performance.
Thanks to a generous donation from Jarrow Masonic Lodge (Gyrwy), Year 3/4 will have brand new penny whistles for their lessons with Kenny next year. This means that we can continue to deliver musical experiences in performance which benefits the children’s confidence and concentration skills.
What a fantastic Sports Day we had this year and no-one can deny how hard everyone tried. We had some excellent challenges; frisbee, skipping, football and an obstacle course to name a few. It was great to see so much team work and how our older children cheered on their younger friends in their first sports day. We later enjoyed a lovely ice lolly in the sun. Well done to everyone involved!!
Mr Hymers and Mrs Moore took the Year 3 and Year 4 Gymnastic teams to the South Tyneside Gymnastic Centre at Temple Park, in South Shields. We participated in an excellent morning of gymnastics.
All the children taking part from schools around the borough were fantastic and the standard was very high.
We kept up the great sporting traditions of Dunn Street by coming first in both the Year 3 and Year 4 competitions.
The Year 3 team registered the best score of the day and will now represent South Tyneside at the regional competition.
We are all so proud of the children that represented our school.
