Our residential trip this year was to Wooler in Northumberland. It was a very, VERY long way. On the journey there, we stopped at Housesteads Fort, which was an important part of Hadrians wall. We learned that the wall wasn’t built by one man called Hadrian (fancy that!), and that the Romans had built it all the way across northern Britain to stop the Scots from attacking. While we were in Northumberland we visited Bamburgh Castle, and spent the day on Bamburgh beach, where we had a sandcastle building competition. We explored the area around Wooler, and found a fantastic place, on Wooler Common, to play games and roll down hills. It made the long journey extremely worthwhile.
