Welcome to Yew Class!
Clitheroe Castle Trip
On Tuesday, Year 2 enjoyed an exciting trip to Clitheroe Castle. They had an interactive tour or the Norman keep and then built their own Motte and Bailey castle. Then they practised their sword skills and joined SWORD (Society for the Welfare of Rare Dragons). All of the children and staff had a fantastic day!

Yew Class have enjoyed lots of different activities this Arts Week linked to Chinese New Year. They took part in dragon dancing, chinese lantern making and a drama workshop.
On DT Day, Yew Class investigated different joining techniques and used their findings to design and make an egg box dragon. They made some fantastic and innovative creations!
Year 2 had a fantastic time creating habitat dioramas today. They made models of animals and plants to go in the habitat that they recreated. They also thought about how the animals and plants were suited to the habitat.
Paired reading with Broughton High School
Yew Class had a lovely time reading with Year 8 pupils from Broughton High School. The children were partnered up and enjoyed reading a variety of books together. We are excited to welcome Year 8 back next Friday morning to share some more books! This will be taking place for the next 5 weeks.
