Thank you very much!
In assembly, Mrs Weightman read aloud 3 short stories about children who had been given a present, offered help or asked to join in a game. We had to spot what was missing from the stories and we all knew that the children should have said, "thank you". We talked about why it was important to use good manners in school; it helps bring us together as a community and shows we have respect for one another. Mrs Weightman then shared some exciting news! Every Friday, children who have impressed any adult in school with their good manners (especially at lunchtime!), will be invited to take a seat on the Golden Table. This will be a special table in the hall where a table cloth will be laid, special plates will be used and members of the school council will take food orders and serve the food to the table! What a special treat it will be!
The Civic Carol Concert
The choir have been working extremely hard this term working towards the Civic Carol Concert at Temple Park. The children have shown real dedication and commitment to learning the songs; practising at every moment and attending extra rehearsals. This hard work really paid off as they were absolutely fantastic singing in the concert on Monday night. The children sang alongside 7 other choirs from schools across South Tyneside as well as performing a solo item 'Merry Christmas Everyone' to an audience of at least 600 people. They also had the opportunity to listen to and sing with South Tyneside Orchestra. The choir behaved impeccably and their performance was amazing, you could really see how much they enjoyed the experience. We are extremely proud of them all, well done West Boldon Choir!
Maths at The Centre for Life
Some of our super Y5 mathematicians had a fun filled day of maths at the Centre for Life. First of all the children had to solve some tricky puzzles. They then visited the planetarium where they learned how to navigate using the night sky. After lunch, the children explored the dinosaur exhibition before learning how to perform some card tricks using their maths knowledge.
Our termly winners of the 100% attendance award had a great morning at Boldon Cineworld as a treat to watch Beauty and the Beast. We had a slightly wet walk down but all the children really enjoyed themselves.
Full Year Attendance Treat
Achieving 100% for a full year is an amazing achievement and deserves celebrating. Congratulations to the 30 children who we took to gravity force this morning; they had a very sweaty fun time!
Year 6 Mathematicians
Some of our Y6 super mathematicians have visited Boldon Comprehensive every Monday to complete some very challenging maths activities. This week, it was the turn of some of our Y5 pupils, who with Mrs Duffy's help, learned how to use Pythagoras' theory to find the hypotenuse of a triangle. Impressive stuff!
The Daily Mile
The children have begun a new healthy school initiative called ‘The Daily Mile’. The Daily Mile isn't just about exercise, it has numerous health and wellbeing benefits for children. All children from years 2-6 are on board and spend 10-15 minutes each day, walking, jogging or running. This break from lessons is invigorating and leaves children (and teachers!) more focused and ready to learn. The Daily Mile is non-competitive, fully inclusive, and the children have fun! The Daily Mile builds teamwork and leadership skills, with children helping and encouraging their peers. It also builds self-esteem and confidence, improving children’s perception of exercise for life. We can’t wait to see the long-term benefits it has on our lifestyles!

Macmillan Cancer support
Our Macmillan Coffee morning was held in the school last Friday morning. It was very well attended by both adults and children alike. We are pleased to announce we raised the fantastic sum of £ 238.81. We are sure you'll agree its a wonderful amount for a great cause.
