Year 6 enjoyed a visit to Sunderland National Glass Centre to explore the history of glass making and to watch a live demonstration. The children were even able to make their own glass tile, which is currently in a giant kiln, ready to be collected later this week.
They have been exploring glassware and perspectives in Art and this was a good opportunity for them to develop their evaluating and analysing skills as well as looking at how you can get different coloured glass which was a key question they had before they visited. This trip definitely did not disappoint. Who would have thought that red glass was the most expensive type?
