YouTube Performance: Learning about Local History at St Matthew’ RC Voluntary Aided Primary School in Jarrow

Year 6 at St Matthew’s have just completed a two-day workshop with the Bella Reay School Project. The children have worked with local teacher Peter Sagar, to learn more about their Geordie heritage.

They have learnt about many local stories including the story of Bella Reay – a famous female footballer; the Jarrow Crusade and what it was like during the Victorian days in the North East.

The project culminated in a Music Hall style production, which we have had to film due to Covid restrictions.

We hope you enjoy! It’s geed canny, like!
