Last half term Year 2 welcomed the Mayor of Gateshead to St Aidan’s. She told us all about her role in the community and watched a short presentation of our learning in Geography and Art. We gave her a gift from the Mayor of Thiene in Italy who had given Mr Dunnigan and the children it when they visited Thiene last year. In the package were a selection of books about and photographs of Thiene.
Today we received a letter from the Mayor of Gateshead thanking the children for their efforts and thoughtful questions. In the letter the Mayor of Gateshead told us that she had enjoyed looking through the books and that she has decided to gift them to Year 2. They arrived this morning and we cannot wait to look at them more closely!
