Hello and welcome to this week’s blog. This week has been a very busy one with lots going on inside and outside of school. It has been the Year 6 activity week so two of our children have been out enjoying lots of different fun days every day this week!

On Monday we went to Newburn Park where the children were able to try out lots of adapted bikes so they were accessible for everyone! The children loved riding around the Newburn Leisure Centre and had a fantastic time with all of their friends in Year 6. After lots of fun on the bikes we headed to the Keelman for lunch. We were really lucky with the weather too so the children enjoyed eating their dinner outside in the sunshine. We ended the day by going to play in the park and enjoying an ice-cream to cool us down before heading back to school.

On Tuesday we had a visit from the ‘Bubbleologist’. The children had lots of fun with bubbles and some us even got inside of some giant bubbles! For lunch we had a special delivery from La Famila. The children and the staff enjoyed tucking in to pizzas as a special treat!

On Wednesday our Year 6 children went to South Shields Fair! We had so much fun going on lots of different rides. We couldn’t go to the coast without having fish and chips either!

On Thursday we took a trip to Inflatanation, which is a huge bouncy castle style soft play! The children had lots of fun going on the big slides and playing in the ball pool! We ended the day with a walk around Royal Quays. The children loved getting to hold some of the animals in the pet shop too!

For our last day out, on Friday we went to Hallhill Farm, we all had a great time seeing lots of different animals!

We hope all of the Year 6’s at Hadrian have had an amazing Activity Week!

Those of us who stayed in school have also had a very busy week we’ve enjoyed lots of our usual activities such as Rebound, Swimming, Soft Play and lots of Outdoor Learning but the highlight of the week had to be the Hadrian Carnival!

In preparation for the Carnival the children created their own banner filled with lots of colours to take to the parade. We began the parade at the entrance of school. We followed the Samba band and paraded around the school grounds – everyone had musical instruments, flags, banners and lots of colourful costumes! We paraded around the school grounds before stopping at the Adventure Playground to listen to the Steel Pan Band!

We spent the afternoon singing and dancing with the band – everyone had a fantastic time! Take a look at some of our pictures.
