On the Road 2 Recovery!
Hedworth Lane has been awarded the School of Excellence Award through the Road 2 Recovery Mark from South Tyneside Sports Partnership. Despite the COVID-19 Pandemic the school and the pupils have worked hard to ensure a full and varied PE Curriculum.
Outdoor Activity Week
Year 6 pupils had an amazing week of outdoor activities which included canoeing and rock climbing. The activities were very challenging and these were mentally and physically demanding too. We were all up for the challenge!
Junior Sports Day
Our Junior Sports Day was a big success. We had a great afternoon together. Bubbles were socially distanced from one another but that did not spoil the fun.
Nissan Visit – Linking with industry
Pupils visited the Nissan car plant and engaged in the industrial design process. We toured the plant and sampled what it would be like to be a designer or an engineer.
World Book Day was at the beginning of March, when we were all in Lockdown. We decided to postpone this special day to today so we could all join in! You can see that the children dressed up in their favourite book characters.
Class of ’21
Our Year 6 pupils are delighted to receive their “2021 Leaver’s Hoodies” a little earlier than expected. They all look too cool for school in their must-have school uniform.
A Poem of Hope
Year 5&6 pupils have been writing poems about lockdown and their return to school.
Merry Christmas from Hedworth Lane Choir!
The choir has enjoyed getting together to sing their favourite Christmas songs, despite the lack of performance opportunities this year – they really are true professionals! The children chose two of their favourite songs to record for you to enjoy at home – ‘Rockin Around the Christmas Tree’ and ‘Midnight’, featuring our resident soloist, Matthew.
We know that Christmas will look very different for many of us this year but we hope these little videos will bring you some Christmas cheer! I’d like to send special thanks to our fabulous pianist, Andrew Richardson, who has provided much needed support during staff shortages and kept the choir singing every week.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful festive season and a less eventful 2021!

Maths Week England
Class 1 have worked so hard this week on their Times Tables and have managed to scrape themselves right up to the top of the MWE Rock Out 2020 league table from all the way down in second last place!
Furious last minute games have been going on all day in Years 5 and 6 to try and beat one another, but at the close of the school day… Class 1 has pipped the others to the post!
Will there be any last minute weekend warriors that can change the stats before the battle closes Saturday at 7.30pm? Or can another class come storming back through the charts…? Only times tables will tell
