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.
After two months of writing and rehearsals, today we performed our crime dramas in front of a real judge. The children learnt all about how a court works, and developed and improved their writing and speaking and listening skills. They took on the roles of the Counsellors, defendants and witnesses.
We all had a great morning and are really grateful to Mrs Scott-Phillips for being our judge.
Today we learnt:
There are about 700,000 young carers in the UK.
That’s about one in 12 secondary aged pupils.
There are likely to be young carers in every school and college.
Primary school pupils who are Young Carers meet on Wednesday at Temple Park. Details of local services can be found by clicking here:
Having planted vegetables last year as part of the Science curriculum, Y4/5 have harvested the crop. Some is going into the kitchen at school for dinners and the rest is being shared to go home for the children to enjoy some healthy fresh food.
Year 4/5 enjoyed eating like kings – well Vi-kings at least!
Having researched in groups what Vikings ate, they then presented their choice for the dagmal (day meal) and nattmal (evening meal) to our fab cook Mrs Bowman. She decided on her favourite and the team of four, Demi-Leigh, Deni, Ellie and Kady then bought, prepared and cooked the food for the rest of the class.
Many thanks to Mrs Bowman and Mrs Dunn for helping in the kitchen and to Mr Reader for the money.
After another successful year with our partner school in India, this term’s topic has been rivers. We looked at English rivers and they have completed work all about different rivers in India.
