Year 1 – Great Fire of Gateshead

Year 1 visited St Mary’s Heritage Centre to learn all about The Great Fire of Gateshead. We toured the Quayside and visited Bessie Surtees House to take in the history of our local area and learn about the impact the fire had on buildings as well as people and their lives. Children then had the opportunity to go to The Baltic and use the binoculars to take in the sites and identify key features of the historic landscape still evident today.
