The children enjoyed delicious food,a campfire, playing pool and snooker.
This week the children in Class 4 and 5 spent the week learning about refugees throughout the world. We were lucky enough to meet and chat to a girl who was willing to share her story. It was a very moving and thought provoking week.
Class 4 and 5 held a Viking day to celebrate the end of our topic. Class 5 made vegetable soup, which was delicious. We all had a go at weaving and made figureheads for viking longboats out of clay. Watch out for space next!
The faith in action group from year 6 entertained visitors from the parish.
The children in class 5 are enjoying studying Viking Boy by Tony Bradman. We skyped Mr Bradman and he answered lots of questions about his books, writing a book and how he became an author.
The children have had a fantastic time with Forest Schools this half term.
On the first Wednesdauy back, Class 4 and 5 ventured out to study the Vikings in York. The children visited the Jorvik Centre and saw the everyday lives of Vikings. We then visited DIG and became archaeologists, examining the artefacts left by the Vikings. The day finished with the children training for battle.
This term Class 5 are taking part in Forest Schools. They are enjoying outdoor cooking and den building. Remember to wrap up warm.
