Year 1 trip to Gibside

20th May 2019
Year 1 visited Gibside yesterday to learn all about the seasons. 
As well as enjoying the great estate, Year 1 had the chance to identify different types of leaves, looked for early signs of summer through nature, and discovered examples of things that were living, once living, and never lived at all! 
One of the highlights of the day was the chance to build dens for woodland creatures to help them stay sun safe. This was a great team building exercise and we had some fantastic results to show for it. 
Just for fun we also had the chance to play in Strawberry Castle Park to let off steam after a full day of hard work. 
One thing is for sure, all of the children and staff who attended will have slept well as we seemed to walk for miles. 
Well done Year 1
