Congratulations to everyone taking part in our Safer Internet Quiz. We had loads of fun doing it, and from your comments and smiles, you did too! We were really impressed with your super powers of deduction – you managed to spot the fake news stories and the fake photos. As you can see from this photo, we faked our backgrounds as well, but it does look cool!
So, get on with it I hear you cry! Who won! Well it was really close. Three teams all tied on 26 points, Fellgate Y4, Mortimer Monkeys and Spectacular Six from SS Peter & Paul Primary. We had to go to the tie breaker. The tie break question was: according to PC Mag, how many millions of people use fortnight every month? The answer 131 million. The closest of the three teams to that figure was ……. Mortimer Monkeys!!!!! So huge congratulations to them and their teachers.
Thank you all for taking part, we look forward to running another quiz very soon. Have a great half term.
Yesterday we held our annual First Lego League Regional Tournament. We all had a fabulous day.
We’ll post more pictures soon, but going to Bristol to represent South Tyneside at the National Finals are … Harton Puzzlers. Congratulations to them, and huge thanks to everyone who took part.

Hour of Code – Artificial Intelligence
Computer science is about so much more than coding! Learn about artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, training data, and bias, while exploring ethical issues and how AI can be used to address world problems. Enjoy Code.org’s first step in a new journey to teach more about AI.
When you use the AI for Oceans activity you are training real machine learning models.
Last year, the Hour of Code theme of creativity inspired students globally to create technology using computer science. On Code.org alone, students have created over 55 million projects!
Starting this year, the Hour of Code will continue inspiring student creativity with a new theme: Computer Science for Good. #CSforGood
CS Education Week, December 9th – 15th 2019, we hope you’ll join us!
Inspired by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Hour of Code will highlight how we can all use computer science to make a positive impact on our world, from writing apps to solve a local problem, to using innovative ideas in data science to address global challenges.
Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it ís important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.
