Alex had a sleepover

Posted by Rebecca Laidlaw, 23/01/2019

Alex enjoyed staying at Beadnell for the weekend. He had a movie night with the family. He enjoyed the popcorn and being snuggled in by the boys. The next day they travelled to Rothbury to walk around the Cragside Gardens and the Victorian house. They learnt about how water can be made to power electricity.
