Sport Relief Fun Run – Friday

WOW! 90 families have signed up! Such an amazing response and we’re just as excited about the run as the pupils are.
Reminder – please come to the external Year 4 gate at 1:15pm where you will meet your children and sign the register. The assigned staff member will then walk down with you to the flower park.
Refreshments will be on sale and all donations collected are going to Sport Relief.
Try to wear red sport themed clothing and trainers for the run. All pupil participants have to hunt for the hidden cone to cash in for a Easter egg at the finish line!
See you on Friday!

Core Value – Respect

Our Core Value this week is RESPECT.

We will be learning more about this in assemblies and lessons this week.

Beamish Visit

Year 6 are off to enjoy their trip to Beamish Museum today. We have seen some great period costumes from staff and students. Following on from International Women’s Day, Shayla-Grace has chosen to come as a 20th Century Suffragette.

We hope they enjoy their day and get a lot from the visit.

Akzonobel Visit

Last week, five lucky students were selected to spend the day at Akzonobel.
Akzonobel (Ashington) is the worlds most advanced and sustainable paint plant in the world. It is the new center of production for Dulux, the UK’s leading decorative paint brand. It also home to the Dulux Academy and training center.
Our children spent the day making mood boards and sharing ideas for improvements to some of our work spaces at Central Primary. Their ideas have now been sent to Akzonoel’s design team who will use the ideas to put a plan together before coming back after Easter to bring their ideas to life.
They were also lucky enough to create their own paintings on canvas using a black background and coloured paint swirls. Once they’d dried they used special 3D glasses to see how some colours came out more than others. They learned about the different wavelengths of colours and how this is the reason why certain colours are used for different things such as red for stop signs.
We can’t wait to see what the classrooms and halls look like when Aksonobel come back to decorate!
Have a look through the pictures to see how we got on.
