A recent trip to Beamish was a wonderful way for our pupils to learn about history. One of our pupils, Ed, tells us about his trip.
In the town at Beamish was the school which was our first stop. In the lesson we were taught how to use an old fashioned pen. After we were taught the twelve times table. We had some handwriting practice and it has hard to hold the pen. After lunch we visited the town, where we split into groups. We saw the old garage, dentist, bank, solicitors and my favourite, the sweet shop.
Everybody bought lots of sweets and the queue was out of the door! When it was time to go home, we got on the tram and back to the car park just in time for it to start raining.
