Visit Bede's World

Our Year 7 pupils travelled to Bede’s World on Friday 2nd October for a day full of fun, friendship and new challenges. The day started bright and early at 7am when pupils headed on a coach north to Jarrow with much anticipation. On arrival, the group were greeted by the Bede’s World staff who quickly set the forms off on a number of activities including: quill writing; an Anglo-Saxon farm walk; a tour around the Bede’s museum and a hands-on experience of the daily chores that monks would have done. One of the highlights of the day was the trip to the ancient church. Pupils were given the chance to experience life as a monk by dressing in habits and processing silently through the church as Saint Bede would have done. The day was enjoyed by all and proved to be a fantastic opportunity for pupils to make new friends and bond with staff. Moreover, it was a way for everyone to gain an insight into the history of the patron of our school.
