Spring 2024

Beach Day - Monday 12th February
Dunstanburgh Castle class had the most lovely beach day. The weather was beautiful, blue skies and sunshine all day! On the way to the beach, we hunted for signs of Spring coming such as daffodils and snowdrops growing. We also explored the many different habitats present along the walk such as wetland and woodland. We were super lucky to see a pheasant in the woodland who surprisingly came up very close to us! Following this, we consolidated our geography knowledge about the USA and created North America and it's many landmarks in the sand. In the afternoon, we walked up Bracken Hill which had the most beautiful, clear view. We drew the habitats we had seen and the view from the top of the hill. Some of the children even wrote and shared poems about the view to the class! Alongside this, we explored many different points of interest such as the St John's Church and the Battery. It was a super day.
