Morpeth Book Festival 2022

We are proud to have worked with the Greater Morpeth Development Trust on this year’s Morpeth Book Festival.

Our student Media crews have researched, filmed and produced a series of video interviews with some of our region’s authors; including the creator of the Vera series, Ann Cleeves.

Accelerated Reader

AR is a computer programme that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his or her own level and reads it at his or her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the AR website. Click the link below to learn more.

The Land Art Project

At Collingwood we spent a fun filled week outdoors creating outdoor Land Art. In our year groups we collected lots of different natural art materials from around school and we even collected some from where we live. From twigs, branches, grass, shells, rocks and other found items we created a range of artworks from patterns, pictures and tree hangers.
