Evening Quiz!

Mr Williams has very kindly zoomed in to quiz us on all the information we have learnt this week.

Island adventures

After learning about fossils and crinoids in last nights evening activity, we scowered the beach for St Cuthbert’s beads. We had lots of success after being extremely resilient. Take a look at our findings. Here are our rock cains 🪨

Sandcastle competition 🏖 🏰

We’ve been blessed with blue skies this afternoon for our sandcastle building competition. The children have all worked with great determination, resilience and teamwork to create their masterpieces!

Crabulous rockpooling today 🦀🐚

Today we’ve been rockpooling at Seahouses exploring what the coastline has to offer. We used our identification sheets to enable us to recognise the creatures that we found. 🦀🐟

Castle Sketching

For our evening activity, we have been sketching Bamburgh castle using our a range of sketching techniques including hatching, cross hatching, stippling and scumbling. We are extremely proud of our final pieces.

Postcard race

Another blustery walk to post the postcards! We hope you enjoy reading them 😃

Grace Darling Museum and St Aiden’s Church

We had a change of plan this afternoon due to the wet and windy weather so we have spent the afternoon exploring the Grace Darling Museum and St Aiden’s Church. The children have loved learning about Grace’s heroic rescue in 1838 and we were are able to see her memorial in the church yard.

Acrostic Poems – Beamish

This evening we have been using our literacy skills to write an acrostic poem about what we learned in Beamish today.
