Values
Dunstanburgh class have been thinking about the School Games Values and created some super posters. We will display their art work  on our School Games Board in the hall.
 
 
 
Dunstanburgh Beach School 
Fantastic fun was had as Dunstanburgh developed their identification skills rock-pooling on Alnmouth Beach on Friday 24th May. The children were also lucky enough to see Moorhen chicks, swallows, swifts, herons and a cormorant drying it's wings in the sun on the way to the beach. The children found everything from dog whelks to velvet swimmer crabs in the pools and worked well in teams to compete a challenging scavenger hunt and create beach art.

Artist in Residence
Dunstanburgh class spent  Monday afternoon working with an artist to create a whole school collaborative art piece for the Alnmouth Arts Festival 2019. The children observed detail in found beach objects as well as using their imagination to create beach totems. The children also loved learning about Daniel the artist's work and how he uses found beach objects to create characters like Pobbin.
 
Published Poets
Congratulations to the following children in Dunstanburgh who have been chosen to have their poems published in a young writer's anthology: Penelope, Eve, Mia, Jacob, Ewan, Bella, Emilia and Adi. The children have also  been awarded a special 'Talent for Writing' certificate for their original pieces of creative writing. Excellent work!
