Yesterday Year 6 began their new topic of ‘Film Making’ in Computing. Over the next few weeks, the children will be creating their own documentary based on the Ancient Egyptians.
In today’s session, the children worked in groups to plan their documentary. Once their plans were finalised, the children began to think about their interview script and what information will be required.
Keep posted to see how their documentaries develop.
During the Autumn Term there were 70 children who had 100% attendance. As a reward for this the children have spent the morning taking part in a ‘Bouncy Castle Party’. The children tackled their way through the inflatable assault course and then bounced with their friends on the bouncy castle.
The children throughly enjoyed themselves and didn’t want the morning to end! Well done to all of the children with 100% attendance and chef checking the website for up to date attendance information and initiatives.
Thank you to Mrs Thompson for arranging the morning making it such a success for the children.

On Friday 12th January our 7 remaining A Team pupils competed in the Hoops4Health Finals at Sports Central, Newcastle. It was wonderful to watch the North Stand of Sport Central steadily filling up with 50 excited families and friends from Stanhope. This was an good community effort, getting behind the team in a big finals event! Our players were really motivated to play in front of so much support, and give their very best.
The Stanhope team took to the court for the second semi-final against St. Bede’s RC S/S, the defending champions. We immediately started positively, as we passed the ball around confidently. A flowing team move saw us nearly take an early lead with Charlie Bates taking a fine long range effort. This was met by a fantastic roar from the Stanhope support! We sadly couldn’t build on this lead and after much pressure from St. Bede’s, we resisted conceding a basket and rounded out a 0-0 draw.
Therefore a shoot out was to take place, Charlie Bates and Brooke Urwin took our penalties, however they were unable to score and St. Bede’s netted 1/2 of their shots to progress to the final. A devastating way to lose out.
The final took place at half-time in the Eagles game, in a front of 3000 at Sport Central. St. Bede’s RC S/S took on East Boldon winning 8-0.
Well done to the skillful and dedicated players who had all trained outside with such commitment in the build up to the finals throughout a cold, icy and wet December. Finally, a big thank you to the outstanding school community, for your support on a memorable sporting occasion for our school. We will be back even better, more determined and stronger once again next year!
Today 24 children from Y3-6 competed at Temple Park Leisure Centre in the Tyne and Wear County Sportshall Athletics Finals.
Having qualified to represent South Tyneside when winning the previous round in October 2017 the children competed fiercely against very talented pupils from across the county.
The children have practiced diligently and with great heart for many months, both in school at break times and lunchtimes, as well as afterschool too. Their commitment has been second-to- none.
At the end of the event, when the scores of the pupils within each team were totalled, our Team were announced as 5th place finishers. Gosforth Central Middle School were crowned champions for the 3rd successive year.
There were some impressive performances, with great potential for future years demonstrated too –
Maddison Fontaine was 1st in the Speed Bounce with 55 repetitions.
Amie Cutter 3rd Speed Bounce 52 repetitions
Girls Over and Under Relay 1st 1:15.2

We will work hard to come back even stronger and succeed in the Summer School Games Finals.
Well done to all of the pupils involved. I am very proud of each and every one of you.
Welcome back, we hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are ready for the year ahead.
The children have all settled back into school very well and have shown us that they have great expectations for the year ahead. We can’t wait to see what your children are going to achieve within the next term.
Merry from Christmas to all parents, carers, friends and families from all of the children and staff at Stanhope Primary School.
School reopens on TUESDAY 9 JANUARY 2018.
On Thursday 21st December, Year 6 took part a fun filled day celebrating the end of World War Two. On arrival at school, the children were given evacuee packs with their evacuation labels, a letter from home, a photograph of a loved one and their treasured toy/teddy.
Throughout the morning in the hall, the children enjoyed playing a variety of games including: Red Rover, What’s the Time Mr Wolf, Musical Statues and Musical Bumps. Back in the classroom, Year 6 played games of bingo and even participated in a Beetle Drive.
On the afternoon, a street party was held where the children tasted a range of foods and enjoyed the end to their VE Day celebrations.
The children from Foundation Stage 1 and 2 have spent yesterday afternoon dancing away to their favourite Christmas songs. They have taken part in Christmas themed party games and then enjoyed their goodie bags which included a hot dog, drink, crisps, chocolate lolly and a candy cane!
The children are well and truly in the Christmas spirit!
Santa Claus took time out of his busy schedule to visit the children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2. He told them all about the preparations for Christmas and warned them to continue to be good. He said is was checking his list (twice). The children asked about the naughty elves and Santa told them that they were very mischievous! He bought all the children an early Christmas present. They all sang songs and thanked Santa.
