Trip to York Chocolate Story

Year 4 had an amazing time in York today as they had a guided tour of York Chocolate Story and attended a Science workshop at the Methodist Church.

The children were really well behaved and enjoyed learning about the history of chocolate, tasting different kinds of chocolate and making their own chocolate lollies and wall paper.

Well done, Year 4 and Thank you Mick and Edwina for coming with us.

Harvest Festival

Yesterday, we celebrated the Harvest Festival in church and it was a beautiful service. The children sang their little hearts out and the readers were very clear, so a big WELL DONE goes to all the children and staff who were involved.

We would also like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who donated items for Bradford Food Bank or attended the service. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

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!

Easteringle Service

Yesterday, we all celebrated Easter in church and it was an amazing service.

The children behaved impeccably, sang beautifully and the readers were loud and clear.

Here are some pictures that show what the children made in class for the service.

Thank you to everyone who was involved.

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.

A card for ‘Someone Special’

On Thursday 28th March, year 5 decided to create cards for someone special in their lives. Quite a few of them created cards for their parents, however, some of them decided to create ‘Thank you’ cards and ‘Welcome back’ cards for their loved ones.
