School outing to Hadrian’s Wall

As a major feature of Mowden’s “Week of the Wall” project, all children from Years 3 to 8 were taken to get to know our famous neighbour, Hadrian’s Wall a little better. Coaches took us to Walltown, where we braced ourselves for a breezy picnic in the museum lawn at Carvoran. Splitting into two groups, the older children set off with a National Park Warden to visit the wall up among the crags above the Walltown Victorian quarry. They were shown the signs of where a turret had been and the views were magnificent, although the wind was wild! Meanwhile the younger group was taken round the recently refurbished Roman Army Museum, which included a cleverly produced virtual-reality Latin lesson and a 3D cinema showing. After the groups had changed over, the coaches drove everyone to two separate locations, where they walked along a stretch of wall nearer home and along local footpaths. All in all, a fascinating and extremely enjoyable day out of school for everyone!
