We braved the windy, wet weather to mark out areas that we thought would be best to have a wildflower meadow. In small groups we ended up choosing a few sites before agreeing on one corner of our playing fields that we thought would be ideal!

In Year 5, Tommy and Fred from Sunderland Maritime Heritage told us all about shipbuilding in Sunderland.
