On Friday 7th July a group of 11 children and 2 members of staff took part in the North East Sandcastle Competition. Based on a theme of Northern Inventors, the children from Y4 created an image of a light bulb, invented by Joseph Swan. Although they didn’t win the competition, the children worked exceptionally hard as a team to create the design in the one hour time limit.
Last week Miss Anderson’s class designed, made and sold smoothies as part of the Virgin Money Make £5 Grow Project. This was a massive success and an overall profit of £160 was made which will go towards resources for the school.
Yr 4 had a fantastic day on Friday dressing up as Ancient Greeks. They designed Olympic torches, tasted a variety of Greek food and competed in Olympic Games.

Y3 enjoyed a fascinating visit to the Sikh Gurdwara on Thursday July 13th. Mr Singh taught us a lot about what it means to be a Sikh and what happens inside the Gurdwara.

Our Hi 5 teams had another excellent season. The A team won both the South Tyneside League and also the South Tyneside School Games Competition. They then came a respectable 5th in the North East finals.
Our cricket teams also had another excellent set of results in their competitions. Mortimer finished second place in the Girl’s Year 5 and 6 tournaments.
Despite the unseasonal weather, we managed to find a window on Thursday afternoon for KS2 Sports Day. The children had a great time competing in several different events in their House teams. We then ended the afternoon with our traditional races.
