On Monday 28th January, Y3/4B visited Gateshead Library to change their reading books. Whilst on the trip, the children listened to some funny stories and learnt how to find books located around the library.
BBC Broadcasting Newcastle
The cameras were set for action, the news stories had been prepared and as the clocks counted down Y3/4B were ready to step into the shoes of a news reader and a weather presenter. We went inside ‘The Pink Palace’, as the building is affectionately known, where Look North, Sunday Politics and Inside out is filmed. Whilst in the Look North studio, the children got to meet Colin Briggs, who is the BBC breakfast and lunchtime news reader, and they asked him questions to further their knowledge. The children also learnt about how radio shows were made and what it takes to be the perfect weather presenter. Our children had the opportunity to have a go at being a weather presenter and some children found it harder than they thought it would be. Some of the children were fortunate enough to meet a few celebrity guests including Anthony Rutherford (former Strictly Come Dancing competitor) and Dave Johns who starred in I am Daniel Blake. All the children had a fantastic time and want to return again!
Rosewood Care Home
Y3/4B visited Rosewood Care Home on Friday 14th December 2018, to sing Christmas carols. The children and the residents thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The children enjoyed meeting the residents and were very appreciative of the chocolates we received from them.
On Monday 12th November, the children visited the Vue Cinema to watch 'The Greatest Showman' as part of the Into Film Festival. The children all loved the film and loved singing along!
We visited Gateshead Library to choose a book to take back to school. Before we got chance to chose, the librarian talked us through how they categorise and order their books. We were set a challenge to find fiction and non-fiction books under a given number or letter. At first it was quite tricky finding the non-fiction books but by the end we were all pros!
