EVENTS AND VISITS

Year 2 have a ‘super’ trip to Sunderland!

This week, Year 2 took an amazing trip back in time – visiting the Sunderland Winter Museum and Gardens. Pupils took part in a ‘planting’ workshop, where they explored different types of seeds, learnt all about the different parts of a plant, talked about what plants need to grow and had great fun planting their own ‘pea-pod pea’ – don’t worry we are sure these won’t grow into an ‘Evil Pea’ like the one we have been reading about in our literacy lessons!
