CLEETHORPES

On Wednesday 20th September, KS1 had the pleasure of visiting Cleethorpes beach. The weather couldn’t have been better as we built sandcastles, hunted for shells and walked along the beach. We loved spotting the huge ships in the estuary and seeing the pier at the end of the beach. Our favourite part was the train ride back to the coach. The conductor gave us each a lollipop and we sang songs and waved to the passers-by. We felt like royalty.

 Tesco trip

This September, Year 1 and 2 went to Tesco to start their ‘Beachcombers’ topic with a fishy bang. After walking to Tesco with their class, the children we able to explore the fish counter. They learned about where the fish come from and how they are caught and stored before they get to the shop. We were even able to see a mackerel fish being filleted. It was fascinating to learn where our food comes from.

Y1 and Y2 visit the National Space Centre

On Friday 22nd April, KS1 went the National Space Centre in Leicester. During the trip we encountered many space artefacts and we learnt a wide range of facts about space and space travel. We particularly enjoyed our planetarium experience where we learnt how the rotation and orbit of the Earth gives us night and day.

EASTER BONNET PARADE

Lots of children made Easter Bonnets at home with their parents for a parade in school.  The winners from each Key Stage won an Easter Egg.  Here are a selection of the hats.

Conisborough Castle

On Rememberance Day, we all went to Conisborough Castle in Doncaster.  After our visit, we made 3D models of castles, soldiers and created lots of other art work such as shields.  There were also a lot of new, very long and complicated words we had to learn.  We then used them in our writing.
