St. James park trip

Yesterday we had a great day at St. James park first we did the Magpie market which we had to make football strips and sell them the team with the most money was the winner but unfortunately it wasn’t us. After our lunch we had a tour around the staduim where we went into the players changing room and took photos in front of there football strips. Next we started building triangle based pyramids (which were hard) then we put them on top of each other and made a huge triangle based pyramid which touched the top of the room.

St James Park

Yesterday we went to St James Park for creativity fortnight. The first thing we did when we got there was the Magpie market.The aim of the game was to be the team with the most money to do that we had to create and sell football strips. We had to be verry good at perswading to give us more money for the shirts. The game was set over a short 5 day week and sometimes we ran out of materiels so we had to buy more materiels with our hard erned cash and the winners were (drum roll please)The champions!!!!!!!!!! And the people who lost were lots of dosh. Then we had lunch(we were hungry).Then we went on a walk around the stadium whilst doing a quiz on St James Park. We went on the highest point of the pitch and the lowest point of the pitch. Our best part was being next to the pitch and sitting on the managers chair. After the tour the tetrahedron challange. What we had to create a triangle based pyramid using only wooden sticks and elastic bands. Our tetrahedron reached the ceiling(yay)! Then we got the metro home and talked about what an amazing day we had.

St James’ Park Maths Day


Yesterday we went on a brilliant trip to St James’ Park and although I’m not a big football fan I thought the day was really interesting and great fun.

I’d love to hear about what you thought of the day- which were your favourite parts and why? Did anything surprise you?

‘Did you know…?’ Think about facts you learnt about the stadium or players and maybe share them here for other children to enjoy.

I look forward to reading your comments!!

Hi guys.  Hawkhirst was amazing and I didnt want to leave. On the first night we watched Bugs Life which was, ok. On the second night we watched Despicable Me and even though I have seen it over 10 times its still the best film ever! If you dont know what Despicable Me is then where have you been? So basically its about a man called Gru who has these really cute minions that help him make a line of jams and jellies! Just joking they help him build things and look so cute! On the last night at Hawkirst we watched Percy Jackson and the sea of monsters. My favorite activity was Jacobs ladder and me and Lauren made it to the top! The food was really nice aswell.(thats the bit i was most worried about) BYE!!
