During the Autumn term, Sycamores have been on two class trips. As part of our ‘Rivers’ topic, we travelled to Newcastle where we walked along the Quayside of the River Tyne completing different geography fieldwork activities. We studied the land use and how it has changed over recent years. We then walked up to the Discovery Museum where we explored the River Tyne exhibitions. We had great fun!

To end our topic, we went to Sunderland where we visited the Winter Gardens and Museum. We took part in a workshop all about the River Wear. The workshop leader was so interesting and showed us lots of artefacts connected to the history of the river. Her family had lived in Sunderland for many generations so she told many fantastic stories.
