Games on the green with the most spectacular view 😍
Mr Williams has very kindly zoomed in to quiz us on all the information we have learnt this week.
The perfect way to end a seaside holiday…fish and chips! 😃
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 🪨
We finally made it out to sea and had a wonderful time seeing the Farne Islands, seals and seabirds!
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!
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. 🦀🐟
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.
Another blustery walk to post the postcards! We hope you enjoy reading them 😃
Today we have spent some time writing our postcards to send home to explain the fun we have had so far. We can’t wait for you to read them!
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.
After a windy walk to the castle we explored how the castle had been invaded by the Romans, Saxons, Vikings and the Normans. We have learned how the kings and queens of the castle have built and developed it into the spectacular sight you see today. We also listened to a few ghost stories tooContinue reading “Brilliant Bamburgh castle”
This evening we have been using our literacy skills to write an acrostic poem about what we learned in Beamish today.
Leiton’s discovered a love for spag bol!

We’ve be able to see what’s cooking in the pit cottages, step back in time at the school and visit we have visited the chapel.
