Freya in Miss Lawson’s class is the first mathlete of the week trophy winner amassing over 2000 points.
All of the children in Year 5 and 6 should now have received a child and an adult ticket so that they can attend the South Shields vs Hyde match on Saturday 23rd of March. The game will Kick Off at 3pm and you may see some of our children waving flags for the players just before the kick-off.
The children are also welcome to join the team from the foundation from 1.30pm for fun on the 3G pitch which will include football, hockey, rounders and other games.
If you are in another Year Group it would be lovely to see you at the match tomorrow and you can get reduced priced tickets from the club website.
Please remember that children must be accompanied by an adult to gain entry into the ground.
Weekly spellings to be practised at home. Please could you ensure your child’s spelling book is returned to school every Tuesday. The test will be on the same day.
Today the children from Reception to Year 6 had the chance to meet some of the South Shields first team players and ask them some great questions about football and the club.
Every child in Year 5 and Year 6 will also receive a child and an adult ticket to see South Shields play against Hyde on Saturday 23rd March, KO 3pm. We really hope you will save the date and make a day of it – additional tickets can be purchased online and on the gate. Although Kick-off isn’t until 3pm, there will be activities and games on the 3G pitch which is at the ground (Mariners Park) from 1.30pm.
Some very special children will also be chosen to be flag bearers when the team enter the pitch for kick-off!
Watch out for our Easter raffle where there will be the chance to win a signed South Shields shirt too.
From time to time our children may come across content online which gives them ‘Yukky Feelings’ (makes them sad, scared or worried). It is especially important that children know to follow the Kidsafe Rules which we teach at Ashley:
- Walk Away
- Say No
- Tell a Trusted Grown-Up
There will always be risks posed to children, both online and offline and it is important that we give them the skills and strategies to be able to deal with these risks appropriately.
As grown-ups we can make sure we are aware of age restrictions on Apps and games, use privacy settings, block and report users or posts that are worrying and above all, communicate with our children. Remind them not to accept friend requests from people they don’t know and to check with a Trusted Grown-Up before sharing personal information.
As always there are some really useful websites where you can get a wealth of information.
- Childnet International
- UK Safer Internet Centre
- Parent Info
- Internet Matters
- NSPCC Online Safety
- Common Sense Media (I use this one lots)
Please also be reassured that when children are working online on school hardware that key strokes and content accessed/searched for is monitored and only age appropriate content is available.

Miss Lawson and Miss Locklan
