The children had a fantastic time today when they took part in the ‘Pudsey Bearpees Challenge’ raising money for Children in Need.
Nursery, Year 1, and Year 2 getting active!
We had an action packed few days on this year’s residential. The children took part in every activity with a smile on their face (even the Piranha Pool!) and great determination. They were well-mannered and a pleasure to spend time with. We hope they enjoyed the trip as much as we did!

Key Stage 2 classes recently took part in a virtual visit from award-winning author, Hannah Gold.
During the virtual visit, Hannah spoke about her bestselling books The Last Bear and The Lost Whale. She also introduced the children to her highly anticipated third book, Finding Bear. Hannah spoke about her exciting work and the background to her latest book, as well as answering pupils’ questions in a Q&A session.
Some of the children enjoyed listening to Hannah so much that they were motivated to write their own animal stories inspired by Finding Bear.
We’ve had a fantastic first day at the centre. The children have had their tea and are now taking part in “team challenge” which is the last activity before hot chocolate and bed.
Today, the children attended the RAP (Reducing Risks At Play) Event at South Shields Fire Station.
They took part in a series of workshops looking at the different risks when they are out and about.
The children learned about how to stay safe in and around water, using the local metro, the dangers of electricity and how to stay safe on their bikes in our area and on the roads.
The children particularly enjoyed the fire demonstration at the end…and their free goodies!
Well done to one of our Year 6 pupils who won a prize for their fantastic R.E. work during Mortimer’s open evening.
The children in Year 6 enjoyed their final disco at St Bede’s on Tuesday night.
Fun and games, dancing and a treat of a McDonalds. The children (and staff) had a fantastic night!
I think you will all agree that the children did an absolutely fantastic end of year production; ‘Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies’.
The children worked so hard to memorise their lines, learn the dances and show off their acting talents.
Well done Year 6!
During the month of May we honour Mary, the mother of Jesus. On Wednesday, we held our May Procession and service in Mary’s honour, offering our prayers to her. We were blessed with beautiful weather, processing from the school grounds into the hall where the service was held. Father Bill welcomed the children at the start of the celebration and gave us a blessing at the end.
Year 4 led the celebration, with children from each class bringing flowers to place in the vase at the focal point dedicated to Mary. The children shared a reading, prayers, a litany, sang some beautiful hymns, and one of the children crowned Mary with a lovely garland of flowers.
It was a joyous occasion, and we were impressed with the children’s engagement and beautiful singing throughout.
