Reception read 'Mix it up!' and explored colours and colour mixing. We experimented by pouring warm water on to the skittles and predicting how the colours would mix. After that, we observed the colours mix together.
Yesterday our champion hockey players got the opportunity to attend RGS to be coached by a former England hockey player and some of the current national champions from RGS Hockey 1st XI. It was great experience for the boys and girls and we hope they can take some of the training into the county cup finals next Tuesday.
Year 4 had a wonderful day at Vindolanda, exploring Roman history and finding out about the lives of the Roman army that lived there. They spoke to archaeologists who were working on the site, explored the museums packed with interesting artefacts, and finished with a lesson from a virtual teacher - who taught them how to speak and count in Latin.
Today Year 2 visited the quayside as part of their learning about the Great Fire of Newcastle. We looked at what the old houses were like, we visited St Mary's Church where the factory was where the fire started and we looked at how the bridges had changed!
