Samba Drumming with Mr Olatunji

Year 4/5 children were invited to be involved, alongside local playwright and poet Tom Kelly, Dr Matt Perry from Newcastle University and staff from South Tyneside Libraries, in an exciting project to mark the 80th anniversary of the Jarrow Crusade.

 The Jarrow Crusade was a significant part of the history of the town and played a major role in shaping how Jarrow is viewed across the world and how the people of Jarrow view themselves today. A variety of approaches were used, including drama and creative writing, to spark the children’s interest and imagination and to explore their responses to the Crusade, their heritage and in many cases their own family history.   Amazingly, we discovered both Grace and Mrs Hunt had relatives that marched in the Crusade!

 The project included a range of cross-curriculum activities to find out what Jarrow was like in the past, to explain why the Crusade happened, to discover more about who the marchers were and where they lived and to discuss how people responded to it at the time and in the present day. In our final session we marched with our badges and banners through Jarrow, as you can see in the photographs.

Year 4/5 enjoyed a class trip to the Odeon, Silverlink.  We were treated like VIP's in the Premier seats.  We watched ' A Night at the Museum-Secret of the tomb' which linked perfectly to our Ancient Egypt topic. 
 
'I liked when the archaeologists were searching for the tomb in the beginning, and the funny scenes with the museum characters', Jamie Year 5.
 
'I thought the monkey was hilarious', Grace Year 4
 
'I liked when the Pharaoh was reunited with his parents in the Egyptian part of the Museum, in London', Jaydan Year 5.
 
A big thank you to the Into Film Festival for screening this exciting film, and the Odeon, Silverlink for hosting the event.

On World Maths Day, Year 4/5 and Year 2 worked together with the Maths Puzzle Challenge Games.
