KS1 had so much fun visiting Clitheroe Castle! They explored the castle grounds and made their own castles out of sand! They also enjoyed exploring all the different features of the castle and used simple compass directions (N,E,S,W) and locational language to describe where the features were in relation to themselves. When they got back to school, they enjoyed creating sketch maps of the castle too.
Year 5 enjoyed exploring different types of maps and globes whilst learning all about space today!
The children in Nursery have been busy making dens to keep Hattie the hedgehog and her friends warm and dry for their hibernation. They loved collecting sticks, used for constructing their dens and then covering their dens with a cosy layer of leaves.
Year 6 loved visiting London!
They enjoyed visiting The Palace of Westminster and had a tour of the Houses of Parliament.
Years 3 and 4 visit to Blackpool
In Autumn, Years 3 and 4 visited Blackpool. They enjoyed observing and recording the human and physical features of Blackpool using sketch pads and cameras. They stood on the promenade, near the tower and observed what they could see using the eight-points of a compass. When they got back to school they used this to create small maps with features in the right place.
During Autumn, Years 1 and 2 have been exploring the story 'The Robot and the Bluebird' and have enjoyed learning in lots of creative, cross-curricular ways. They confidenty retold and acted out the story, travelling to different 'story settings' within our school grounds that they could make links to from the story. For example, for the scrapyard setting we moved to our recycling area.
