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.

Year 2 visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park

As part of our topic on Africa Year 2 went to learn about and visit the wild animals at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. First, we had a lesson with Lucy, who was very knowledgable and informative. Did you know that an ostrich egg is the same as 26 chicken eggs? Or can you find out the difference between “poisonous” and “venomous”? After the lesson, we went to look at the animals. The weather was fine so we had our picnic outside and then on to see some more creatures. What a memorable day!

 

 

 

 

 

Year 6 African Drumming

On Monday, Paul Butler from Drummers United came to our school to teach us how to play African Drums. We learnt lots of rhythms and facts in the session then performed to the school in assembly.

It was a fantastic afternoon!

Year 5 – Tatton Park Trip

On Wednesday 27th March, Year 5 visited Tatton Park as part of their Topic work. This visit highlighted facts about WW2 and the children were able to link the trip with their learning.

During this trip, the children were able to visit a house which was for evacuees in WW2. The furniture and features of the house were exactly the same so the children felt very privileged to be part of ‘history.’

They were also given a tour of the farm and the daily activities that the evacuees were meant to do. They got the opportunity to complete some of these activities.

It was a nice trip to finish off the World War Two topic. The children and the staff really enjoyed themselves.

Year 6 Whitby Trip

On Friday, Year 6 went to Whitby as part of our topic work. We looked at the Abbey, walked down (and up) the 199 steps, went in the old town, on the pier and play on the beach. The children also had time to look in the shops and buy gifts and sweets. We had a fantastic day although the weather was miserable and wet. The children were a credit to the school and enjoyed it very much.
