On Tuesday 18th October, the North-East Y6 team had a fantastic day, exploring closer to home whilst our class mates are in London. There was much to see and do at The Discovery Museum. We enjoyed finding out more about the life of a soldier in an exhibition to celebrate the achievements of the uniformed services – past and present. We were able to find out more about WWII to add to what we have learned at school. Whilst there, we also visited The Story of the Tyne. This exhibition was fascinating and we learned much about ship building in the North-East and wildlife on the banks of the Tyne. The Science Maze was brilliant and we were able to investigate and explore. After a delicious lunch in the cafe, we strolled to The Baltic, paws-ing to meet a few Snowdogs along the way!
At the Baltic, we had a great time in a the Playground Project. After WWII, artists in Vienna regenerated destroyed areas and included creative places to play for the children. There were some amazing photographs of children developing their own play spaces. We loved what they Playground Project had to offer and were very happy to test it out!
