Year 4 were given a tour of St Andrew’s Church, Corbridge as part of their Religious Studies programme. They also were invited inside the neighbouring Vicar’s Pele Tower, which has recently been turned into an atmospheric micro-pub! In the church, the class looked at clueas around the building that showed influences on the use and construction of the building over the centuries, from evidence of Roman materials, to Saxon and Norman additions through the second millennium to much more modern features. In the Pele tower, the children explored the three levels, climbing up the tiny staircase, to find unusual furniture and a number of interesting traditional indoor games. The trip concluded with a brief look inside the old Methodist church, which now houses children’s books as part of Forum Bookshop.
