Year 1 and 2 visited the Gateshead Quayside this morning, where we walked across the Millennium bridge over to Newcastle. We had some fun building sandcastles and climbing at the Quayside seaside before heading back over the bridge. We were lucky enough to see the bridge tilting to allow the Navy boat to pass. Lucas even got to go in the operator box to call everyone off the bridge and then press the button to make it move! In the Baltic we went to the observation deck and looked at all of the bridges over the Tyne. Back inside we sketched the bridges and made our own model bridges. It was a very busy morning but we learnt a lot and had a great time!
