This week, the KAPLA project has given us the opportunity to develop our STEM skills.
Logical thinking – develops spatial awareness and enhances awareness of shape, volume and sense of balance whilst developing manual dexterity.
Stimulating creativity – enhances creative thinking and children to express their artisitic talents.
Concentration, patience and perseverance.
Teamwork – communication and cooperation.
We also demonstarted all of our school values- showing RESPECT to others, taking RESPONSIBILITY, demonstrating ENGAGEMENT and showing amazing RESILIENCE when the project became tricky.
We would like to thank Kapla for an amazing two day project and a massive thank you to all of our volunteer helpers who were invaluable!
Today the children showed great citizenship, they wanted to help members of our community this winter so they teamed togther with local charity, Hebburn Helps.
The children collected donations of warm blankets and hot water bottles in school, the student council then delivered them to Hebburn Helps who will distribute them to families in need.
Classes from Valley View, attended the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Monkton Cenotaph.
Members of the student council presented a wreath, on behalf of the school and displayed some art work, that the chilkdren had produced to show their respect.
On the 6th June 2022 we hosted a community event in school to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Families from Valley View Primary School came together to for an afternoon of entertainment; we played games, socialisied and enjoyed some delicious home made scones and refreshments.
We would like to thank all of our families for joining us for this celebration and to South Tyneside Platinum Jubilee Community Fund.
A great time was had by all, we cant wait to welcome our community to our next celebration!
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 made lovley community links with Calf Close residential home last year when pupils from our choir visited the residents to sing Christmas songs.
This year the children participated in the Hearts for Home project. Each child designed a heart with a personal message of kindness or Seasons greeting!
Today members of our school council, delivered the hearts to our friends and wished them a Happy Christmas!
Children from Valley View and Hedworthfield Primary Schools produced some stunning art work to commerate Remembrance Day 2020.
The art work was placed at the Cenotaph in Monkton Village.
We will remember them.
Year 3 and Year 4 had a brilliant day at the Laing Gallery. We completed a workshop creating sculptures and also had a good look around the different exhibitions. We sketched some of our favourite paintings and looked out for different things in the artwork.
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.
