Year 1 celebrate the 1900th birthday of Hadrian's Wall!

2nd March 2022
On Monday 28th February and Tuesday 1st March our Year 1 children took part in a very special art and history project to mark the 1,900th birthday of Hadrian's Wall.
Hadrian's Wall runs less than a mile north of our school here at Lemington Riverside. The art project is part of a wider residency in the west end of Newcastle to celebrate this landmark occasion.
The children worked with local artists and historians to learn about Roman life, trying Roman foods, building their own Roman Mile Castle and creating their own cuddly Roman warriors! 
The work will be show-cased in an exhibition in the Outer West later this term - we'll keep you posted with further updates!
