Cross-Phase Reading Afternoon

At the end of each half term, the children at Newsham Primary are very lucky because we get the chance to read with our friends in other year groups. This half term, year 5 came to read with us in Lifeboats. When we were finished, they filled in our reading records so our adults would… More

Monkton Stadium

On Friday, 24 children Year 5  were lucky enough to visit Monkton Stadium, alongside Year 6, and competed in many different athletic events. Even though we were late for the competition, due to circumstances beyond or control, the children immediately threw themselves into the events (some quite literally) and even managed to come second out… More

Goblin Cars

Year 5 have had the most AMAZING week! As part of the GreenPower Project, our children visited the Port of Blyth and took part in many different STEM workshops.

SPACE CAMP

As part of our week long celebration of Space, last night year 5 got to take part in Newsham’s first ever Space Camp. Everyone in the year group came back to school at 6 o’clock and made our way to the school hall. That was when we were introduced to the carousel of incredible space… More

Amazing few weeks in Y5!

We have had an amazing few weeks in Year 5! Parents’ evenings were so positive and it was wonderful to be able to pass on such lovely comments about the children. Thank you so much for your support as usual. Our visit to Beamish, last week, will remain one of the highlights of the year!… More

Beamish

We had a fabulous time at Beamish learning about life in Victorian times. It really brought our class story of ‘Street Child’ to life and the children were able to understand more what life was like back then. The children had so many questions and listened very carefully to the information they were told from the staff… More
