Article 28: We have the right to a good quality education.

We visited Newcastle Castle which was a Norman fortress and is steeped in history. It serves as a reminder of our local area’s past and is where the city of Newcastle got its name. This was funded by Gateshead Football Foundation. We did a workshop on medieval food and music and we attended Knight’s school to learn how knights would be trained. Nobody had been here before and we learnt lots and had an amazing experience. We were very grateful for this opportunity from the foundation.
