We’ve learnt so much today looking at how the River Tyne has been used in the past.
We carried out three little research jobs, we looked way back to the Roman times and carried out some research on Segedenum. We also carried out research on what the shipyards were and when they were used. And then we also looked at what else the River Tyne had been used for.
We used the internet, magazines, books and magnifying glasses to look for information that would help us. There were key dates on old photographs of the shipyards that we could see with the help of the magnifying glasses, we watched and listened to small video clips on the internet too.
