Year 6 Explore the Past

As part of the local heritage project, our Year 6 children went on a walk around the local area.

They found a spot where a crater was formed after a bombing in WW2. They looked at the different types of buildings, and found the place where the first Sunderland football team was formed by the Sunderland and District Teacher’s Association - this is marked by a blue plaque on Commercial Road.

In school, the children worked with our excellent music teacher, Mrs Bryant King, to compose a song about the local heritage. They played the music on keyboard and ukulele, working in small groups to write the lyrics The children then learned and sang the song – it will be made into a CD, which the children will be able to buy.
