Year 5 visited Herrington Country Park to look for physical and human features as part of our Geography topic. Filling in work sheets as they went, the children spotted such features as different types of trees, hill formations, and man made features, such as the skate park. They made map drawings from different vantage points, such as the viewing deck at the park.

Later that day they visited Penshaw Tea Rooms and had a hot chocolate to warm up, followed by a climb to the top of Penshaw Monument to see the amazing view.
