Years 1 & 2 get a special visit!
To launch our new topic, we had some very special visitors lined up to come and see us at school today. Can you guess what our new topic is?
The children were able to ask the firefighters questions, we spoke about how to stay safe and what to do in the event of a fire. Following on from this, we braved the wind and rain and headed outside to see the big red fire truck. WOW! It was huge! The children were well and truly amazed.
Miss Parvin tried on a firefighter’s outfit and gave out the radios to the children. The children took over the radios and held a role play of what they would do and say in the event of a fire. We were also able to sit inside the fire engine and the grand finale was using the fire hoses. I think a few children were aiming at the teachers! We had so much fun and we can’t wait to get our teeth into our new topic…
The Great Fire of London!

Outdoor Sports Adventure Trip
Yesterday, Year 2 were taken on an outdoor sports adventure trip and it turned out to be a fantastic experience! Our class were invited along to Brotton to meet children from other schools in the local area. As well as having the opportunity to meet new friends, the children took part in numerous activities that were set up by secondary students from Freebrough Academy.
From following a saw dust trail to find clues, to manoeuvring through the woods whilst blindfolded, our day was certainly full of fun and action! Our class thoroughly enjoyed the adventure trip and I’d like to bet that they slept well last night.

Year 1 & 2 trip to Danby Moors National Park.
Well what a phenomenal trip we have had this week! Years 1 & 2 went on an adventure to the Danby National Park. Activities included handling a variety of stuffed woodland animals and foraging for resources which we used to create woodland sculptures. Finally, we went on a Gruffalo hunt around the woods.
The children and the adults thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was great to offer the children the opportunity to learn in the great outdoors whilst also offering them new life experiences. Check out the video below to see how much fun we had.
