Today, Year 4 completed the cladding on their pavilions. It was a tricky job but the final models look great!
We all thoroughly enjoyed our Christingle service today and a huge thank you to Mr O’Brien for leading our service.
South Tyneside Parent Carer Forum need your help gathering thoughts and experiences on Transitions!
Has your child or young person experienced a transition in the last 12 months? If so, we would love to hear from you!
Effective and successful transitions, from one setting to another and/or from one class to another are crucial to a child/young person’s learning and their wellbeing.
We often hear from parents about poorly handled transitions when information about prior learning or support is not shared at the right time to provide a smooth transition. We know this can have a significant impact on the child and their family.
STPCF are keen to find out about families’ experiences of transition arrangements in South Tyneside and identify what a good transition should look like.
Whilst your response will anonymous, we will share the findings from this survey with the Local Authority and other agencies, to help inform service improvement in this area.
As a special thank you for your valued time and input, please provide your email address at the end of the survey if you wish to be entered into a draw to win a £20, £30 or £50 voucher!

EYFS have enjoyed raising money for Children in Need. We designed our own Pudsey Bears, made our own Pudsey masks and added spots to Pudsey’s bandana. Our favourite was definitely the cake sale and obstacle course.
To help Year 5 with programming in computing, we were introduced to Lego Spike by Mrs Haywood. We had to build our models and then programme them to move and make sounds. It was great fun!
In science, Year 5 have been learning about different materials. We made oobleck which we found out is a very unusual material!
