Thank-you so much to everyone who supported our Help the Homeless week. Yet again the families and staff of Windy Nook Primary have outdone themselves with their compassion and generosity for those less fortunate. We have so far raised nearly 500 donations of food and toiletry items and over £35 in cash for the Aquila Way, Basis@336 Resource Centre in Gateshead. The goods will be collected on the 18th July by a representative from the project so until then anyone still wishing to donate can.
Well done to everyone who worked hard to make this happen. Especially the children from Oaks who did all of the groundwork and taught their peers about the real day to day issues of the homeless.
The Y5/6 children have worked really hard to encourage everyone to consider the lives of homeless people in Gateshead. Please support them by taking a look at their work and donating during Help the Homeless Week, 2nd – 6th July.
Have a listen to our fab help the homeless radio broadcast.

Please help the People’s Kitchen to provide a meal for the homeless this Christmas. Read the fabulous presentations made by pupils from Oaks who were concerned about people less fortunate than themselves. Well done also to all of those children who created the eye catching posters that can be seen around our school. A big thank you to everyone who has already sent in food it has been great to see the pupils ‘Bring a tin and drop it in’ on a weekly basis.

We certainly did show our spots AND raised lots! A whopping £463.13 to be exact. Thanks to all who sent in donations and dropped some pennies (and pounds!) into our buckets.
A big thank you from Pudsey!

What do you think? A great school to be part of, or what!
Thank you for supporting the Macmillan coffee morning at our welcome meetings. Your donations, along with the donations made by staff raised a whopping £135.12. Thank you generous people! Mrs Wong
Here at Windy Nook our ‘Press Pack’ have been lucky enough to be mixing with the stars! Newcastle’s recent hatrick hero – Demba Ba visited our school as part of Newcastle United’s Family Learning programme. The children really enjoyed interviewing and learning about how he became a footballer. How ever will they cope in lessons tomorrow mixing with their teachers???!!! Definitely journalists in the making.
Why don’t you look out for some of their questions they asked Demba in Saturday’s Sun newspaper and even on Sunday’s Match of the Day.
Maybe you could tell us what you think of our budding reporters.
Dear Class 11,
Since we are in the middle of our leaflets about how fantastic the nature park is, I wondered if any of you might be able to get out with your cameras and take some pics of how much fun you can have there? Maybe some good sledging or snowman photos? If you can, then you could bring them into school on a pen drive and we could use them in our leaflets. And if you don’t have a camera, don’t worry, because you can always be thinking up some fantastically appealing adjectives about the wondeful nature park!
See you soon,
Especially for Victoria! (always wanted to say that, does that mean I am an author?)
