Last Friday was Washington New Town’s Birthday and Usworth Colliery celebrated it in style.
Mr Wright was kind enough to spend the school’s hard earned money on a picnic for everyone. Every year group trotted out onto the field to enjoy a fine feast of biscuits, crisps and Capri-Sun’s in Washington’s glorious sun shine.
The town was 50 years old so in honour of this we joined together to create a giant 50 on our school field.
After we’d had our fill and celebrated Washington’s milestone, we burned off those extra calories by playing some traditional playground games.
- Farmer, Farmer May We Cross Your Golden River?
- In and Out the Dusty Bluebells
- What’s the Time Mr Wolf?
- Grandmother’s Footsteps
- Fishes in the Sea
- Duck, Duck, Goose
- Captain’s Coming
- Keeper of the Treasure
- Queelio Cockio
- Mother May I?
We really enjoyed escaping our PlayStations and Xboxes as you can see from our smiling faces below.
