Our year 5 and 6 girls took part in the Derwentside cricket tournament on Tuesday 23rd May at Shotley Bridge C.C. The girls won their first three games easily which qualified them for a semi final against Ebchester. Some really good bowling saw them take 6 wicket and winning by 30 runs. In the final they played St Mary's a good batting side who posted a very good score, the girls batted very well but were beaten by 18 runs. Well done to all the girls who did their best and were so close to winning.

We visited Newcastle Keep to see how the city defended itself from invasion and the strategic position to the Tyne river. We then went to South Shields to defend our coastline with bows and arrows and then used swords to repel the Viking invaders.
