This week, we went to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park!

Despite the rain, we had a fun packed day and saw lots of animals. Some children even held some creatures!

Animals!

This half term we are learning about animals. In preparation for our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park we have learnt about where animals live and the different types. 

See what you can remember:

Here is some of the work we have done this week!

Can you tell a grown up at home about Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s journey to the Antarctic?

Conisbrough Castle!

On Thursday 18th May we went to Conisbrough Castle as part of our history topic on castles.
We had lots of fun walking around the castle and learning about when the castle was built.
Did you know…?
Conisbrough Castle is 850 years old.
The Lord was called Lord Hamlin and the Lady was Lady Isobel.
There was no moat around Conisbrough Castle.

Castles!

As part of our topic this half term, the children have been learning to name the different parts of a castle. They know now where the portcullis is and the purpose of the battlement among others.

We have also made some castles out of clay. The children had a few famous castles as examples and then they recreated them using clay. Some children had great ideas when designing their own castle, which they then made out of wooden blocks.

WOW – walk to school  – Class 1 and Class 5

This week, class 1 and class 5 had a visit from Living streets. They came into school to introduce a new walk to school scheme.

After Easter, the children in class 1 and class 5 will try out a new challenge: every day, they will log how they have travelled into school.  If your child comes to school in an active way, just once a week, for a month, then they will receive a collectible badge. This scheme will run until July, so they have the chance to collect 4 badges for this school year.

Your child can walk, scoot or bike, but if you are unable to travel actively, then you may also park and stride. All you need to do is park 10 mins away from school and walk/scoot/bike the rest.

Thank you for your support with this new and exciting challenge!
