Year 1 and Year 2 smashed their winter performance delivering a perfect show for their grown ups. The audience was spellbound by their beautiful singing, acting and outstanding narration!
Wow! Early years blew everyone away with their magnificent performance of Whoops a Daisy Angel. It was hard to believe that the children were only age 3 -5 years old. the show stole the audience hearts!
Year 3 and 4 gave the most amazing, spell bounding performance of Gabriel’s Big Break. Cllr Alan Smith, who attended the performance, on behalf of the governing board, was speechless, he told everyone it was the best show that he had ever seen!
Our newly elected school council from Valley View and Hedworthfield were welcomed by the Deputy Mayor for a tour of the Town Hall in South Shields this week.
The children learned about the history of the Town Hall, they created their own school crest, they participated in a very challenging question time and took a vote on whether to ban homework or not !
It was a great visit, our school council were amazing ambassadors for our schools.
Thank you so much to the Town Hall staff, Deputy Mayor and Councillors who made us feel so welcome.
We had a visit from the Dog Trust today, The children learned about how dogs have feelings and how we would approach a dog to keep us safe and not to distress the dog.
Parents and Carers joined their children for an afternoon helping bees, butterflies and other insects. Everyone planted wildflowers to help the school grounds for nature, they then made a recycled butterfly feeder, plant pot and hanging basket full of butterfly friendly flowers to take home.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to West Boldon Lodge for working with us.
Look at our baby chicks hatching !

I help the children with their speech and language. I am also excellent at regulating the children’s behaviour and emotions when they need me.
I love to looking after the children at Hedworthfield Primary and being a really good friend on four legs !
Our Children love Shadow when asked they said he was “cute” “really good ” so valuable” and an amazing addition to have in school”
Year 2 from Valley View, Hedworthfield and Additional Resource Base 1 enjoyed a ‘ Great Fire of London’ day. They baked bread in the Pudding Lane Bakery, built Tudor houses, drew London fore landscapes with pastels, sang songs, toasted marshmallows in our fire pit. They then watched as the Tudor houses were set alight to act out the burning city.
Year 1 and Language Unit 1 visited St Nicholas’ church to understand why it is so important to Christians.
Father Raymond talked about all the wonderful things the church provides for the Christian community. The children also looked around the different parts of the church and identified a range of features.
The children enjoyed exploring the church and finding out what it has to offer the local community.
