Our class visited Lord Lawson School to compete against other schools in an orienteering competition. We had to work in two teams to complete mini challenges and find all the markers on an orienteering challenge...and both of our teams won a medal!

Miss Cheetham's team won silver and Mrs Huggins' team won bronze! We were awesome!



Pizza Express Visit 

On 2nd May, our class visited Pizza Express in Newcastle to find out how pizzas are made. 

We found out how all the ingredients were gathered, and where they came from, and we even sampled some different types of toppings like olives and basil. We each made our own individual Margherita pizza to bring back to school with us. It was an awesome day out!

Climbing Centre - 28.2.17

We visited Newcastle Climbing Centre in Byker with year 4 to end our Mighty Mountain topic. 

We were all extremely brave and everyone had a try...some even made it to the very top!

Great North East Day

We enjoyed our music workshop this morning where we learned about famous people from the North East and joined in with local songs.


Beamish October 2016

We had a great day at Beamish where we learnt even more about The Victorians. We had a school lesson by a strict Victorian teacher, explored what it was like in the mine and visited the different shops from The Victorian period.
