Culture in the UK Day 2011

This day was a whole school event.  We worked together to learn about similarities and differences in various parts of the UK.  All the teachers brought photographs and food in from where they were born.

Children brought in information about members of their family who were born somewhere other than Wylam.


A Letter from Buckingham Palace – June 2010

In Year 1, as part of our Australian Topic, the children wanted to send Queen Elizabeth a birthday card to celebrate her official Australian birthday. The children drew lots of Australian animals and a beautiful portrait of the Queen. I was very proud of our wonderful card and how excited the children were to receive a letter from Buckingham Palace to thank us all.
