Year 4 have been to the North York Moors today to take part in their World War Two weekend. They were evacuated on a stem train where they sang World War Two songs and learnt all about life at home during the war. They explored the tiny village of Grosmont and saw how different life would have been for children who were evacuated.
We hope you had a great time everybody. Thank you for making us proud with your exemplary behaviour and interesting questions!

Have you ever wondered who Cleopatra VII was? And what she does? Now is your chance to find out loads about her. None of this is my opinion so you’ll have to believe me. Cleopatra was the queen of Egypt, kings and queens were called Pharaohs, so Cleopatra was one. Any Pharaoh had ruled for 3,000 years all the way back in time BC! This amazing ruler (Pharaoh) lived in Greece, but moved to ancient Egypt when Alexander the Great invaded. Also Cleopatra had a few siblings. Read on for more funtastic facts…
Family and early life
Cleopatra was born by her parents Ptomemy XII Aulets (dad) and Cleopatra V of Egypt. Amazingly, Cleopatra VII was born a princess. Later on her mother had a baby boy which was Cleo’s brother. Unfortunately, at 30BC Cleo died. She only lived for 39 years. Cleopatra’s family, each individual one, moved to Greece, not just the people she lived with.
On the reign
When Cleopatra owned the throne in Egypt she liked Julius Ceaser who was a Roman Emperor at the time, so they got married. At the time, they had 3 children. Well, before Cleopatra VII was on the throne Tutancarman owned it. When Julius left Cleo she got married to Mark Antony. Both of Cleo’s husbands shared the throne. At the age of 19 Cleopatra was declared Pharaoh. So she ruled for 21 years.
Thank you for reading, I hope you liked my funtastic facts!
This week we had a visitor. He came and taught us about WW2. We acted out scenes that would of happened during the time. My group acted out a scene and I had to put a gasmask on. It felt really funny and wierd. It must of been horrible for people in war wearing them all the time. The mask looked like a pig snout. He brought all the things we’d need to act out. He came in different classes we acted out scenes and we acted VE day.
Year 4 went on a school trip to Danelaw to learn about Romans life. They have been looking at them this term in their Topic lessons.
While they were there they took part in a number of activities which included; training to be Roman soldiers, guarding a Roman fort and defending it from invasion. They even had the chance to eat similar foods that the Romans would have had thousands of years ago.
As you can see from the pictures, they had a great time and the weather was fantastic!
What a fab assembly! 5H told us all about the Ancient Greeks. We all learnt a lot – did you enjoy it?
2G performed their fantastic assembly today, about the Great Fire of London in 1666! They spoke loud and clear, and everyone learned lots about the disastrous fire in London, many many years ago.
They enjoyed their interesting visit from Alex Fellowes, playing the role of a witness of the great fire, and learned lots of fascinating things from him. 2G did brilliant in their assembly, as well as having lots of fun telling everyone about their fantastic time.

3P visited the Yorkshire museum in York today to find out about what life was like in the Stone Age, through to the Iron Age. They spent the afternoon in a fantastic workshop where they were able to handle genuine artefacts from thousands of years ago such as a range of axe heads, arrow heads, flint knives etc. The children then took part in a hunting celebration, cave art, weaving,tee pee building, making a clay pot and designing their own coin.
The children behaved beautifully and all had a fantastic day out. Have a look at some of our photos and feel free to leave us a comment.
