10th November 2015 - Medieval Day.

Wow! What a fantastic day we have had. Thank you to all the parents for your support with home learning projects, it was lovely to see so many children taking part. The costumes ranged from blacksmiths and servants to knights and princess. So many features of these costumes were hand made of which the children enjoyed sharing with their friends as well as parents in the afternoon.

Today the children enjoyed many activities including, sword fighting, javelin, embroidery, story writing, flag making, quill writing, making crowns, swords, and shields.

Over the first half term we have been taking part in Music sessions from Mr Marsh on Wednesday afternoons. We were able to share our song we have been learning with the rest of school during our whole school music assembly on 28th October 2015.

1st October 2015 - Today we visited Skipton Castle as part of our History topic Just Imagine. We were able to gain first hand experience of what castles look like and what they were used for in the medieval times. We gathered lots of new information which will support us with our future learning in class about the different people who lived and worked there and their roles.

In the first half term children enjoyed reading the story The Lonely Beast. The children were given opportunities to role play a scene from the story and freeze in role.

The Beast entered the city and this was the response from the people who lived there. Can you guess who is the Beast in these freeze frame shots?
