Year 3 at Tatton Park

Yesterday we stepped back in time, we went back to 410 AD and learnt all about how the Anglo Saxons lived.
We braided wool, made bread and practiced going in to battle.
We had a fantastic day at Tatton Park and our Anglo Saxon friends really helped us to understand more about this time. It was a great end to the half term.

Fun in the Sun

Last week, year five made the most of the good weather and ventured up to the cricket field for their PE lesson. After a good warm up and a game of duck, duck, goose, they practised some football skills and played a few matches. They ended with a jog around the cricket field!
