Year 5 Gardening

Thursday 13th July 2017:

The final clear up! The children were absolutely amazing. They go stuck in and kept going. We're really proud of them and their fantastic team work.

Tuesday 11th July 2017:

Who needs Monty Don or Alan Titchmarsh? Year 5 did a fantastic job starting to tidy the courtyard area and despite the drizzly rain, they enjoyed every minute.

Year 5 Summer Term Trips

Using profits from the Fair Trade Fayre, the Year 5 children enjoyed three trips for a bargain price of £4.50. We began our first trip at the Great North Museum (Hancock) where we explored the museum and gazed at the plethora of artefacts on display. We went on a scavenger hunt and to complement our current Science topic, we took part in a 'Journey to Mars' workshop and then went to the planetarium for an amazing show about our solar system. On the second day, we headed off to Gravity Force and proudly demonstrated our athleticism on the trampolines. The fun continued in the afternoon the children scaled the lofty heights at Sunderland Climbing Wall. The walls were incredibly high, but the children faced their fears and did incredibly well.

Lion King Performance

Who needs the West End or Broadway when Castletown Primary children, staff and our community can put on an extraordinary performance of Disney's The Lion King? Sunderland's Mayor even came to watch the second show and agreed with was truly amazing. A big thank you to the children, Miss Ni Chomhrai for arranging the show and everyone involved. We're very proud of you all!

Year 4 Skipping

Well done to our Year 4 skippers! They are Sunderland Champions. Mrs Ingram was really proud of the children for their excellent attitude and hard work.

Christmas 2016 Activities

Here is a selection of photographs to show you different events around the school before the end of the Autumn term.  The run up to Christmas is always an incredibly busy'll see why.  We ended the term with a Christmas sing along in our Christmas jumpers; Year 5 and 6 got everyone's feet tapping in their Key Stage 2 production of 'Hosanna Rock';  Year 6 had a visit from Gentoo and made poinsettia baskets; and Reception had a trip to the farm.  Money raised from the Christmas Choir concerts was split evenly across the year groups in school to give to charity.  Here, you can see Year 4's donation to the Salvation Army.  To round off the term, Year 6 had an end of unit celebration to showcase their hard work.
