Year 2 had a lovely afternoon at Marine Park Orienteering. We followed clues and worked in teams to gather materials to create a hedgehog home. We also had to keep an eye out for any sea creatures and draw them. It was lots of fun and we enjoyed working as a team.
Year 1 had a fantastic day at Marine Park. We had fun sketching the bandstand, riding on the train, playing in the park and enjoying a picnic. Everybody was delighted to have an ice-cream from Minchellas to cool us down!
Today the children in Year 3 explored the Winter Gardens. They took part in a workshop learning about the different animals in the rainforest and loved exploring the museum. The children were able to discuss lots of interesting facts and the people at the museum were very impressed. Well done Year 3!
Children in Year 6 compete in South Tyneside’s Quadkids competition at Monkton Stadium. Every child competed in four event and worked as a team to gain as many points as possible. Children competed in the 75 metre sprint, howler throw, standing long jump and the 600 metre run. All the children demonstrated great sportsmanship and enjoyed the competition.
Year 6 took part in a number of team building activities and had go at orienteering in South Marine Park.
The sun was shining as we joined the Dragon Parade on its route through Jarrow. We all had a wonderful day. Well done to year 3 for making the dragon and everyone from St.Mary’s who turned up to help or to support us on the route.
Children in year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their time at the gymnastic festival at Temple Park. Children participate with other schools, practicing their rolls and jumps.
In this special month of May, the children gathered to celebrate the crowning of Mary. The children reflected on Mary’s role in Jesus’ life and how important she was. We enjoyed singing hymns to celebrate and shared prayers to reflect on this special time of year. A lovely liturgy Year 3.
Today the children in Year 3 began to time events in seconds and minutes. The children practised counting to a minute with their eyes closed and realised this is actually quite difficult. The children then used stopwatches on the iPads to time themselves taking part in a range of activities. They had a great time making towers of cubes, counting to 100 and completing head, shoulders, knees and toes 20 times.
Today the children in Year 3 began to create their dragon for the festival. They each took on different roles to create the head, legs and body. The children used a range of materials and can’t wait to finish their creation next week. It looks amazing!
