Rugby Tournament

Pupils in Y5 and Y6 enjoyed their first taste of Tag Rugby in an exciting tournament with other Gateshead schools. Some fantastic tries were scored by Layton Bowering, Tyler Gregory and Ivan Wong. What a great afternoon! 


RSPB Wildlife Challenge

We have recently enrolled on a very exciting journey as part of our science curriculum.  Our Animals and their habitats topic lends itself very well to outdoor learning. Our first wild challenge was to create our own bug log pile homes using resources in our outdoor environment.  Lawn clippings, rotten turf, soli, leaves, twigs and logs created the most comfortable homes for mini beasts.  Take a look at their creations...

Today we were given the exciting treat of starting our day with some lively exercise.  We played a series of interactive games in the glorious sunshine with with our Elder bubble group.  Year 6 have some surprisingly good throwing and catching skills.  Well done!

Safety Works November 2019



Good morning.  After a very hearty breakfast, we are off climbing the great Jacobs Ladder. Who will get to the top? Will anyone get to the top?

Following that, the children will be throwing tomahawks (at a target, not each other!) 

After lunch, we are off canoeing and paddle boarding. Who will fall in the water first?  We are in for a very soggy afternoon.




After a very challenging morning, abseiling and flying down the zipwire it was off to the Birds of Prey Centre.  Ray and his team kept the children enthralled with their knowledge of the birds and after a very exciting display, it was time for a hike back to the lodge.

We have arrived.


Bell boating in the rain, what fun. Rowing over to the forest and a game of hide and seek before heading over to the swings. Tired and very wet, the children changed and headed down for tea. Tonight we will be hiking through the forest by torch light. How exciting.
