In Year Five, all pupils have the opportunity to visit the amazing National Trust property, Cragside in Rothbury, as part of their Victorian History Topic. Pupils experience workshops including butter making, Victorian clothing and Victorian toys and leisure. In addition, there is the opportunity to visit the Pump Station and House to see how Lord Armstrong introduced electricity to his home.

Here’s some pictures from last year’s trip:
