Year 6 had a fantastic trip to Northumberland with an overnight stay in Seahouses. They packed a lot into the two day trip including a trip to Beamish, the outdoor museum where they were able to learn about what life was like in a working mining village over 100 years ago. Moving further North, the children visited the Angel of the North sculpture by Antony Gormley which towers above the gateway to Newcastle as well as using their photography skills by taking photos of the various bridges over the Tyne. The children then moved onto Seahouses on the coast where they stayed overnight in a hostel complete with Pizza night! The next morning, the children took a trip to Lindsfarne, holy island, where they were able to use their Viking knowledge and see first hand where the Viking landings took place. Onward to Bamburgh and the Grace Darling museum as well as a walk on the beach at Bamburgh below the amazing castle. This gave the children the opportunity to compare the physical and human features of Bamburgh and Morecambe. Finally, a quick visit to the Farne Island gift shop and fish and chips to round off a great few days.
