On Thursday, Years 5 and 6 put on their walking shoes and raincoats and visited Cragside. Our day was full of different activities and involved exploring lots of areas across the site.

In groups, we saw how the house was powered, paroused the many rooms of the house and met guides for in-depth insight into Lord Armstrong’s life. Seeing the world’s very first electric bulbs was a real…highlight.

In the afternoon, the children hiked through the grounds in order to spend time at the play park. There was even time for some den-building!

Thanks to the children for their superb attitude, to the parents for their fantastic help and support, and to the staff at Cragside for being so welcoming.
