Our final destination
We’ve had a quick pit stop at the Sage in Gateshead and learnt lots of interesting facts about the Millennium Bridge.
We’re coming home!!!
Get ready for the peace to be shattered. We are all excited to be coming home to our loved ones. We have had a wonderful week. The children have been great and it has been a pleasure to spend time with them.
Grace Darling Museum
After listening to the story of Grace Darling we have visited the museum all about her life. We watched a film of the rescue and gained a greater insight into the interior of the lighthouse. We even learnt how to light the lamp of the lighthouse.
As our week draws to an end we have spent time reflecting on our friendships and how we have cherished this special time together. I’m sure the memories will last for a very long time.
Saving the best til last
This evening we had a lovely evening meal of fish and chips.
St Cuthbert’s beads
We spent time on the beach looking for St Cuthbert’s beads and had the opportunity to look at St Cuthbert’s Isle where he spent many years living as a hermit.
After crossing the causeway we spent time in the priory reliving the life of St Cuthbert . We tried to imagine how his life would be different from ours.
We have lots of tired faces this morning as the children had to be woken up. However they are also excited to learn more about St Cuthbert and look for his beads.
Winner winner chicken dinner
After our busy day today we arrived back to beautiful chicken dinner. This was followed by scrumptious apple crumble and custard. Our tummies are full ready for our evening activities.
