Best Work and Stars of the Week

York Residential 16 July

Year 6 across the Federation came together last week to visit York for 3 days. We explored York Minister, enjoyed the  Yorvik experience, became archaeologists, walked some of the city wall and did a whistle stop tour of York Railway Museum.

We stayed in York Youth hostel where we had a floor to ourselves. We had great fun sleeping in bunk beds! The food was fabulous especially breakfast - there was soooo much to eat!

In the evenings we took part in activities led by The Youth Hostel staff: for example team building (some of us were better at this than others!), designing and making mosaics, making Viking long boats and battling them and looking at myths.

We came home very tired, but having had a fantastic time!

High Ropes and Laser Storm 5 July

Year 5 had a wonderful day at the High Ropes and playing Laser storm.

The high ropes took some of them out of their comfort zone, experiencing heights and challenges they hadn’t tried before, but they were all so determined and brave! The encouragement and help they gave each other was fantastic.

As a group they should be very proud of themselves. It wasn’t practical to take photographs in Laser storm but they ran themselves ragged and enjoyed trying to beat each other and ‘zap’ the grown-ups!

Working with Year 1 24 June

Year 1 joined the Jaguars again last week when the new Reception children came in. The Year 1’s enjoyed reading with the older children and playing games outside. We are not sure who had the most fun- the younger ones or the older children!

Percussion 24 June

Jaguars are enjoying the class music lessons with Miss Justyna learning to play percussion instruments

Books & Boogie 14 June

Jaguars have been taking part in the NSPCC ‘drop your books and boogie’ throughout the day, dancing to songs like ‘Baby Shark, Superman and Oops upside your head.’ Great fun has been had by all including the staff!

Safety Workshops 14 June

Years 5 and 6 took part in the NSPCC workshop today about keeping themselves safe. They engaged in the activities very well and answered questions in a very mature fashion. It was commented how mature they were.
