Thank you to everyone who donated to Hebburn Helps! It is greatly appreciated and, as a school, we have managed to collect lots of supplies to help our community.
Have a lovely half term break!
We can’t go on school trips at the minute so we brought the trip to Y2!
Y2SC had a virtual visit to the Museum of London to look at the Fire Fire! Exhibition and listen to experts tell us about the Great Fire of London.
Ella was surprised to hear that the Baker’s Maid died but the others in the bakery survived because she was too scared to jump out of the window with them.
Tilly was shocked at how quickly the fire spread on Tuesday.
Khloe wondered why the houses were so close together.
We know that several parents would have normally visited our early years setting to see what we are all about. Unfortunately we can’t do that in the current climate so Mrs Hughes and I have made a little video tour for you to enjoy. It will give you an idea of our areas and a chance to meet some of the staff!
Can you help?
As the new year begins, we are making essential changes to our school Nurture Room. Our ELSA staff have been working tirelessly to create a calming, homely environment to create a safe space for our children.
We are looking for a fish tank (with equipment if possible) to help bring all areas of the space together. If you are able to help, please contact the office so we can arrange collection/drop off and quarantine time.
We are so excited for you to see our new-look Nurture Room so keep an eye out for a post in the coming weeks with all the fantastic things we have to show.
We are so excited to announce our new breakfast provision will start on Monday 14th September!!
We are so lucky to be part of the National School Breakfast Provision that ensures every child is entitled to a breakfast bagel. If you would like further information, please click here.
Taste Test Success!!
As part of the National School Breakfast Program we taste tested our brand new bagels! They went down an absolute storm as you can see in these pictures! We can’t wait to get the scheme up and running in September. Our second taste test will be Wednesday with the children in our part time bubbles!
Did you know that every child will be able to have a bagel at school in class in September?
Our Year 1 Bubble has been working so hard that we just had to show you these fantastic pieces of writing! We think these are absolutely amazing, don’t you agree?
We have been so impressed by the children who have returned to school since we reopened and we continue to be impressed by all of the lovely things everyone is doing at home. Keep up the hard work guys, you make us all so proud!
“What is Low Mood?
Anyone can get Low Mood. It is the most common psychological problem. It varies from person to person and stressful or difficult things can trigger it or it can seemingly come out of nowhere. We all feel sad from time to time but usually the feeling passes. With Low Mood, these feelings of sadness just seem to go on and on and it’s hard to see a way to feel happy again.”
Today we have received these wonderful documents from IHeartCBT to help support children during this period of uncertainty. These documents can help identify feelings and offers activities to support children who may be struggling with Low Mood. There are 3 sessions to be completed over 4 weeks.
As our school is a member of the Jasmine Platform, we have been given free access for parents to use at home with the kids. Keeping a healthy body and mind will be really important during the current climate.
real PE at home – online learning resources
real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.

There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well-being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:
It would be great if you and your family share your thoughts and videos through our social media platforms.
