This morning St Aidan’s enjoyed an assembly delivered by the Shipley Art Gallery about the local history of Gateshead. They showed us an interactive map and they invited children to find out about the history of different parts of Gateshead by choosing a location and using the key. We learnt lots of interesting things! Did you know that the man who set up the Shipley Art Gallery used to live in Saltwell Towers in Saltwell Park? Then we organised photographs of the seven bridges along the River Tyne in order from our school to the Baltic on the Quayside.
