Photos – Class 1 2018 – 2019
Class 1 went on a trip to Durham on Tuesday 19th March. We had a tour around the Cathedral to find out about the special places inside. We learnt about Baptism and found out what is put on an altar. We then went into Durham market place to find some landmarks.
‘That History Bloke’ – George Stephenson
Class 1 were visited by ‘That History Bloke’ who told us all about George Stephenson and his inventions. We made our own candles, dressed up, made our own clay trains and handled lots of artefacts. It was a fantastic morning.
