Sky Class: Roker Beach

We spent the day at Roker Beach, to explore the land and sea scape. We are writing an adventure story about a Roman Solider, who arrives in England, via the North East Coast. We explored the caves in Roker Park and we imagined what our local area looked like in 43A.D, when the Romans invaded.
