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!
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 !
