Anti-Bullying Week

This week it is National Anti-Bullying Week 2017. It is so important that we all know what bullying is and how to stamp it out!
Our school has been taking part in lots of different activities this week including: odd sock day, designing anti-bullying posters (for the Sunderland City Competition) , re-writing our anti-bullying policy and of course learning all about different types of bullying and how to help prevent them.
In our school we have lots of techniques to help us prevent bullying: We have prefects supervising the toilets, buddies on the school yard looking for a friend in need, an anti-bullying team who meet regularly and worry boxes – to name just a few!

Our school took part in National odd sock day this week; on Tuesday we wore odd socks (of course) to show that everyone is different and everyone is equal. All of our socks were different but they all kept our feet warm and toasty just the same.

We think that it would be very boring if everyone looked the same and thought the same in our school.
Everyone in the world we share has different talents, beliefs, thoughts and abilities and you should never be rude to people about their ideas or force your beliefs upon someone else. It’s good to talk and learn from one another. Diversity makes the world a more interesting place.

In 6LG, we enjoy discussing diversity and equality – we have been learning just how diverse and amazing our world actually is.
On Thursday this week, we made an anti-bullying video based on diversity with Jane Adamson to show everything we have been discussing and learning. It will soon be posted on our website so we hope you check it out.

Our school is currently in the process of renewing our Anti-bullying Charter mark.

Nursery Rhyme Challengers

We love nursery rhymes! Do you? This week we have been taking part in the Nursery Rhyme Challenge. Each day we learnt a new Nursery Rhyme as well as singing lots of our favourites along the way. On Monday we explored floating and sinking when we learnt Bobby Shaftoe. We used the computer to march The Grand Old Duke of Yorks men up and down the hill. We explored colour mixing when we sang Lavenders Dilly on Tuesday. On Wednesday we made a clock for Hickory Dickory Dock and everyone loved playing What time is it Mr Wolf. On Thursday we were busy winding bobbins and on Friday we joined Old King Coles band playing instruments. After a busy week we drew pictures of our favourite nursery rhyme. Whats your favourite?

Welcome to Easington Lane Primary School

On behalf of myself, the staff, governors and pupils, can I warmly welcome you to our new school website.

We are a mainstream primary school committed to inclusive education and meeting the needs of all the children in our care.

We aim to provide a lively, creative curriculum to challenge and motivate our pupils and enable them to participate in a range of high quality learning opportunities. The schools excellent facilities enhance the quality of our children’s education. We have recently extended our building and increased our outdoor facilities further, this has enhanced the opportunities that we can provide our children (although we are always seeking to make them even better).  However our greatest resource is our skilled and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide the best teaching and learning experience for each child.

We want our pupils to enjoy coming to school and to be enthusiastic about learning. We will nurture and encourage pupils and hopefully, inspire them to be active participants in their own development and education.

We expect high standards of behaviour from all of our pupils, and ask parents to work with us in ensuring our children fulfil their potential.  We are an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school and you can read our most recent inspection report here.  We are a school that continues to strive for improvement and recently worked with an external body to complete a Whole School Review in May 2017.  To read the findings form this review click the link below.

This week in Year 4, we have been writing spooking settings using our 5 senses, alliteration, metaphors, similes and personification to create imagery in our work. The results were spine-tingling.

Bonfire baked potatoes.

How do you celebrate Bonfire night? In Nursery we have been learning about some of the ways we celebrate November 5th. Today everyone enjoyed the baked potatoes we cooked around our role-play bonfire.

Light and Shadow Investigators

We have been learning about light and shadow and the dangers of the sun’s rays as part of our science and D&T topic. We discussed how the sun’s rays can damage our skin and eyes and how we can protect ourselves. By planning and exploring various materials we came up with our own designs for a pair of sunglasses which we are now building ourselves (not that we expect to need them for a few more months!)
