We had a wonderful Dahlicious Day to celebrate one of our favourite authors. Let's see who was present. There were many Wonkas.
What a day - look at the gallery for more and class pages.
It was a sad day for the children of Waverley who were sent away to Beamish to keep them safe from the Luftwaffe raids on Newcastle.
Some of the children were sick on the journey - they had never left home before. Each child carried a gas mask, a teddy, their lunch, an ID card and a name tag.
They travelled by bus to the farm where they would spend the war.
Some were excited but others looked worried.
Home Farm would be their destination. It was very smelly and different to life in Lemington.
Look at the difference between the lights - would a bomber see the light?
Windows were taped up in case they were shattered.
Food was more plentiful but they would have to work for it.
The Air Raid Precautions man inspected our blacked out building.
Look at the rest of our day below in the gallery.
Mr William Hedley came into school to show his new invention to the local miners. He could not believe that the people of Wylam still wanted to use their ponies.
He showed them the rods, cogs, pistons and pumps. But still this man was adamant that he would never ride on the Iron Dragon!
He showed us how heavy a sack of coal was and how difficult it was for the ponies.
Mr Hedley showed how Puffing Billy could travel 9mph!
His apprentice even gave us a detailed explanation of the way they made steam.
But some children had obviously been caught playing on the coal heaps!
They were made an example of and the ponies were sent back to the fields.
Sports week comes to an end with the big Castle Sports event - have a look at the athletes below in action.
