What a fabulous day we had at the official opening of The Word, The National Centre for the Written Word.
Many thanks to the students and teachers of year 6 from St Bede’s RC Primary School for making it such a fun day.
We have built, programmed, explored, sung and danced!
We even had some special visitors from Hogwarts!

We were joined by comedian and author David Baddiel and author Ann Cleeves who were very excited about The Word and thought it was a fantastic building.
Not long now until we move into our new home The Word, National Centre for the Written Word.
We thought you’d like to take a sneaky peek inside.#TheWordUK

The NSPCC has also released a guide for parents to keep children safer whilst playing on the app: NSPCC: Pokemon Go Parent’s Guide
Year 5 from West Boldon Primary had great fun programming Milo. They used ipads to control the motors and linked up 3 Milo’s at once, with one used to steer. Can you do more?
