Trip to Newcastle Cathedral and Laing Gallery

15th November 2022

It was such a joy to pull our work on Northumberland, Anglo Saxons and the Lindisfarne Gospels together and go and see the actual artefact which is 1300 years old!  The children are incredibly knowledgeable about this part of our heritage and history and made us very proud.  St Nicholas Cathedral had great activities set up which were very interesting and interactive for the children.  We also enjoyed visiting the City Library where the children impressed the staff with their knowledge of Beowulf and Anglo Saxon story telling.

Although it was rainy, it was also a good opportunity to walk between sites in Newcastle and experience the city – traffic, buildings and people!
