Y5 are studying New York as their topic this term so to support their learning they embarked on a sight – seeing tour of local landmarks. They visited The Angel of the North, Saltwell Park, The Quayside and The Great North Museum. The educational trip will support a study they are conducting between New York and Newcastle /Gateshead. Children will be using the experience to compare: The Statue of Liberty and The Angel of the North, , Central Park with Saltwell Park,, Brooklyn Bridge and the Bridges over the Tyne, National History Museum to Great North Museum and Belvedere Castle to Saltwell Towers.
Although the weather was a little cold and icy, all children said they’d found this to be a useful visit…Our thanks to The Baltic for allowing us to use a room at lunchtime.
