Youlbury 

After a busy few days Year 5 have returned from an exciting trip to Youlbury. We have had a brilliant time and have been given positive feedback from the instructors about how great and supportive of each other the children were! Every one of them have challenge themselves in different ways. They have all had a go at orienteering, sensory trail, team building, crate stacking, zip wire, shelter building, vertical climbing and I think the most popular was the 3G swing. Listen out for some of their campfire songs as I am sure they will share them with you as they are filling you in on the week! 

 

“I really enjoyed myself and my personal favourite was the 3G swing. This was my favourite trip ever! I would recommend it!”

Hill End Display

Thank you to everyone who came and shared the children's learning and viewed our display on Friday night. I have been given some really positive feedback on the children's work which was really good to hear. Kim from Hill End was really happy with the display and will also be putting some pictures on the Hill End website. The photographs he took on the day were fantastic! If you haven't already seen the display please feel free to come and have a look in the hall.

Year 5 trip to Hill End 

 Year 5 were given an amazing opportunity to visit Hill End to experience what life was like in World War One trenches. Hill End was used as a training base for World War One soldiers before they went to fight on the front line. We had to put on uniforms to camouflage ourselves and give us the full experience of what it would have been like. We were shown real photographs of the trenches, had to re-enact these and add in our thoughts and feelings. We were taught how to cross no man's land and attack our opponents in battle. We thought it was a really fun day and it showed how hard it was for people to survive in the war.

Information will follow about an opportunity for parents to tour the grounds and a display will be put up in the hall after Christmas showing our fantastic work.

Year 5/6 trip to Whipsnade Zoo

 

Year 5 and 6 had a great day at the zoo this week. We found out lots of information about endangered animals and what we can do to help them. The children enjoyed watching the shows and visiting all of the animals. One Year 5 child said, “We have learned lots by listening to the talks on the animals.” Here are some photos from our day!
