Year 3 visited the Great North Museum, Newcastle to attend a workshop about Ancient Egypt to start our history topic. They looked at artefacts from Ancient Egypt and matched them to labels and discussed which jobs were important and why? They discovered how mummification was carried out and saw a real mummified person. They liked exploring the exhibits in the museum and reading all about them.
Today Year 6 ambassadors attended the Remembrance Day Service at the Monkton Cenotaph.
The children laid a wreath and displayed some beautiful art work that they created.
We will remember them.
Last week, Nursery enjoyed learning all about the Harvest Festival. We looked at the story of bread, and we were shocked to find some flour had been left for us from Farmer Phil! We decided it was a great idea to make our very own bread, We loved looking at the changing texture as we made the dough, and we learnt how to knead. We couldn’t resist trying our bread once it had been baked, and sharing it with others.

The sessions are aimed at those parents/carers of children and young people who have experienced difficulties with their mental/emotional health and who may have accessed services either now, or in the past, giving parents/carers a chance to meet and develop their understanding on some of the services South Tyneside has to offer.

Today our school council welcomed Jarrow MP Kate Osborne to Valley View.
Ms Osborne enjoyed a tour of the school before entering into a challenging question and answer session with the School Council.
The children did lots of research to prepare for the meeting. They asked about the Women and Equalities Committee, what they could do about climate change, how they could get more money for fun equipment in school and if Kate Osborne MP had ever met Boris Johnson !
The Student Council made a great impression Kate Osborne commended them all praising the excellent selection process the school used to elect school councillors.
We look forward to another meeting soon!
We are proud to announce that we are a CPD Champion School!
Child Safety Week, 1st – 7th June 2020 – Safety Makes Sense
South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Partnership are pleased to inform you that we will be supporting Child Safety Week again this year.
This year Child Safety Week runs from 1st June until 7th June 2020 and looks very different due to the COVID 19 pandemic. None the less the messages of how to keep children safe from accidents remain the same. Our homes are accident hotspots for younger children which is a scary prospect at the best of times and sadly less traffic doesn’t mean we can completely switch off about road safety.
Throughout the week we will be sharing a range of top tips on how to keep children safe from accidents during lockdown (these can be found on our Twitter feed @STSafeguarding), as well as providing links to some excellent resources from the Child Accident Prevention Trust.
We would encourage you to share the links and resources across your own networks and have attached the 2020 family activity pack.
