Ensuring all children feel happy, safe and loved

The Penguins

5RW at the Discovery Museum

Santa vs Science workshop


Earlier this week, 5RW visited the Discovery Museum in Newcastle to take part in a Santa vs Science workshop. Following a morning looking round the History and Science zones,  the children worked on a series of experiments in teams including building air powered sleighs. They had lots of fun! 

The children loved looking around the museum. Mr Rowlands and Mr Wooton have never been on a trip where the children have pressed every button, pulled every lever and read every sign on the way round until now. We were so proud of their knowledge and enthusiasm. Well done kids. 

Cinema Trip

Year 5 had a fab time on their trip to the Vue Cinema in Cramlington to see Sonic 2. The children were really well behaved on the bus, in the cinema and on the way back. They represented the school brilliantly. All the children came home with a card offering a free children's ticket at Vue in December. 


The trip to the cinema was planned as part of our efforts at Beech Hill to provide the children with "cultural capital" opportunities - giving the children a range of experiences to help them grow as individuals. 


Andy Warhol

Year 5 have completed their unit on Pop Art where they learnt about Andy Warhol and his work.

They drew simple objects, and used marks and lines to produce texture. They also annotated their sketches in detail to show their understanding and thought process. Here are some of their final pieces of work.


Some children took part in a 3 day cycling event.
