Bark and Read

We challenged the school to complete 30 different activities as part of our Summer Challenge over the six weeks holiday, from flying kites to watching the sun go down. The response was phenomenal. The biggest pat on the back goes to our marvellous Y1 class, who produced a stunning batch of entries. It was very difficult to pick two winners.

Our proud writing: Pobble Day at Seaburn Dene Primary.

On 3rd February 2016, Years 5 and 6 spent the day working with Karen Langtree, the school's Patron of Reading. Karen used her latest book "Knights of the Wobbly Table" as a starting point for story creation, script writing and setting words to music.

Robin and His Sherwood Hoodies

In 2015 the Christmas by Candlelight production was Robin and His Sherwood Hoodies. It was very challenging with up to 90 lines to learn but we made it! The audience rolled in the aisles with laughter. If parents have any further photographs we can use please email them to us.

Shakespeare Rocks them in the Aisles


On Wednesday evening the Drama Club performed Musicline's musical play "Shakespeare Rocks". The audience roared with laughter during every scene as the cast delivered the cleverly written puns with confidence and skill.

Year 4 perfect the Testudo formation at Arbeia Roman Fort.



Year 4 spent an amazing day, exploring the ruins and re-living life as front-line Roman soldiers on Hadrian's Wall. During our visit to Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields, we met Roman Centurion Maximus, who drilled the children and prepared them for battle against the fearsome Celts, aka their teachers and parent volunteers.
