Excitement is building as Sunderland prepares for the Tall Ships Race in July. Our school is very involved in the activities, attending many workshops with a whole school transition topic based on this prestigious event.
One of our former pupils Guy Errington, now aged 15, has so impressed his school (Monkwearmouth) with his attitude and determination to do well that he's been nominated as an ambassador to join the crew of one of the ships sailing to Denmark. Congratulations to Guy-we're all very proud of you.
As we wake up to glorious weather for the next week or two, please put sun safety first. At the very least, apply sun cream to your child's arms and face (there are creams that will stay on the whole day) and equip your child with a hat or cap. We see so little of the sun that we'll all want to make the most of it and celebrate the chance to be outdoors.
It's assessment week when we see how much progress your children are making.
Year 2 are visiting Castle Eden Dene for a natural world day.
Dance Club is on Monday, not Wednesday.
Mastermind SR6 takes place on Thursday. This is an inter-house quiz based on what children have covered this year in class and a whole section of questions on their geographical knowledge. So get learning those capital cities and thinking about everything you've covered in class everyone. It should be another exciting day.
See Less Plastic
For the rest of this term Year 5 are going to be working on a local project led by a team from OASES . The project is called "See Less Plastic" and workshops begin on Thursday morning. As they will soon be moving into Year 6, Mr. Smith is swapping with Mrs Houston so that he can follow the project through.
