Shaun on the Tyne


In the summer of 2023, a new exciting, free public art trail will add colour to the streets, parks and public spaces of Newcastle and its surrounding areas– and you’re invited to join the fun!

Dear families,

Bede Community Primary School invites you to the most “ewe”nique gallery in Gateshead! Your children have created a beautiful sheep of their own, just like our school sculpture ‘B. “Ewe”nique’.

These are being displayed over the next few days for you to view alongside gorgeous photos of the children with our sculpture.

Please come along to our very special art gallery event at the times and dates, for each of our school stages, below:

Key Stage 1  – Wednesday 12th July, from 2.30pm

Reception Class – Thursday 13th July, from 2.30pm

Key Stage 2 – Friday 14th July, from 2.30pm


You are welcome to “buy” both the photo and artwork for a small donation of your own choice. All proceeds will go to the St. Oswald’s charity. While here, you could also order or buy raffle tickets and trail maps for St Oswald’s Shaun the Sheep Trail, which will be all across the North East this summer.

Please enter through the main entrance to school.

Children may leave school early with their families after viewing the gallery.
