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.

Pokemon Go

We have had this message from South Tyneside Council we thought we’d share with you.

Mobile gamers using Pokémon Go are reminded not to put their own safety in danger.

The new mobile game app has been sweeping the nation and sending messages to gamers telling them where to find Pokémon. However, some of the locations of the virtual creatures are located in places which could see the user potentially put themself in danger

The NSPCC has also released a guide for parents to keep children safer whilst playing on the app: NSPCC: Pokemon Go Parent’s Guide
