At the end of June Class 2 spent a day in Newcastle. We walked along the quayside and looked at all the sculptures then we looked across the river and saw the Baltic.
It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day and we watched the water fountains as they sprayed out in the middle of the river. As it was such a nice day we split into our groups and travelled up in the glass lifts in the Baltic to the viewing ledge.
Some of us were really lucky and were able to see the Kittiwake chicks sitting in their nests, which were perched along the ledge of the Baltic. After that we met the rest of the group and used binoculars to look along the quayside.
At 12 o’clock we managed to get a fantastic view of the swing bridge as it moved. The children were quite mesmerised by it.
We ate our lunch in the sun and soon it was time to perform in the Sage. We were shown to our seats in one of the theatres and soon started warming up our voices. We sang songs about Nelson’s rum, A seagull, A Tahitian echo song and ended with the Rock pool rock which, as its name suggests had us all rockin! in the aisles.
We had a lovely time and the children are still singing some of the songs.
