Year 2 Visit The Grace Darling Museum in Bamburgh

Year 2 have been learning all about significant people in history in or Humanities lessons. In Geography and Science we have been looking at contrasting localities and habitats. We visited Bamburgh to bring to life all that we had learnt.

On our journey we saw all four of the localities which we have been studying in school.

When we got to Bamburgh we visited the Grace Darling Museum and we saw the coble which Grace and her father used for the rescue.

We visited St Aidan’s Church where Grace was baptised and where she is buried.

We also enjoyed playing on the big field in the shadow of the magnificent Bamburgh Castle.

It was a fabulous day. We had some sleeping beauties on the bus on the way back!
