    On Friday 29th March, Year 4 visited the Rainbow Factory in Leeds.  Through theatre, interactive story telling and arts and crafts, the children explored the Stone Age.  The unique experience transported them to this prehistoric period. 

    The children learned all about how people used to hunt for food, the weapons that they used, communication through symbols, the animals that lived in prehistoric times and the day to day life.

  • YR Visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park

    Published 27/03/19

    What an amazing day Reception had at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  We started our day excited to see our favourite animals. First, we saw the meerkats and next a pride of fierce lions.

    We met a pair of addax, one that looked quite like a unicorn with only one horn. Some of our children got very close to the wallabies and their baby joeys which we called ‘pouch potatoes’.

    We noticed the wild hogs digging for food with their snouts. Asroboa the monkey from our story ‘The Leopard’s Drum’ showed his super climbing skills by jumping and leaping from branch to branch.

    We met so many of the animals from The Leopard's Drum and Handa's Surprise. 

    Time to head to the classroom to put our knowledge to the test and learn some more! We practised our roar and learned more about the characteristics of our favourite animals.

    We found the other horn, and Onini the python! The camel's winter fur was stinky and, if we listened carefully, the cockroaches hissed like snakes.

    Our brave children even held some of the slimy snails.

    We were lucky enough to see the lemurs at feeding time and despite the rain, they came up really close.  There were smiles all round regardless of the weather.   The weather brightened up as soon as we met Osebo the leopard. We think he was still upset that Achi Cheri tricked him into losing his drum to the Nyame. He looked up at the sky all day.

    We wondered why the polar bear's fur wasn’t as white as we thought it would be.  

    Finally, we met Achi Cheri the tortoise, she moved extremely slow. It must have taken her a long time to push Osebo’s drum all the way to Nyame!

    We saw many more animals and we had such an exciting day.

  • World Book Day 2019

    Published 07/03/19

    A good book can take you to another place.

    On Thursday 7th March 2019,  when the children came into school, they found their classrooms had transformed into scenes from well known books.  Previously ordinary rooms had transformed into streets, chocolate factories and even the Antarctic. The children spent all day surrounded by stories and the characters who live in them.

    Children and staff had an amazing day and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
