Day 3 has been exciting and jam packed with activities!
After a hearty breakfast, we heading to the Shambles for a bit of gift shopping. Lots of fidget spinners were bought and a few York souvenirs.
Next, we went to York Minster, where we took part in a treasure hunt.
After lunch, we enjoyed the fudge experience, learning how it is made and most importantly tasting it.
From here, we then headed to Clifford’s Tower and found out about Norman castles.
Next, we cruised down the Ouse! Learning lots of facts about river life in York.
We all enjoyed a well-earned ice-cream before a stroll around the ancient York wall.
By now we were starving! We went to Macdonalds for tea and finished the evening with a ghost walk!
It’s been a great day!
Enjoy the photographs!

Happy Easter everyone!
Here are the entries to this year’s school council egg decorating competition.
Our Halloween disco was a huge success. Thank you for your support with this event.
Here are some photos from the night
It seems like a such a long time ago but in September the school council visited the Houses of Parliament in London.
It was an early start. We took an early train from Manchester Piccadilly train station to London Euston. Luckily, a kind man at the train station gave us lots of cereal bars to keep us from getting hungry on the journey.
When we got to London, we quickly took a tube to Hyde park where we ate our lunch.
After that, we marched to Buckingham Palace on route to the Houses of Parliament. It was boiling!
When we arrived at the Houses of Parliament, we met our MP,Kate Green, and asked her lots of interesting questions about what it was like to be an MP. We had a tour of the Houses off Parliament and got to watch the Commons and Lords debate different issues.
After a jam packed day, we headed back to the train station via Mcdonalds!

What a day!
After a delicious breakfast we swiftly marched to York Minster where we learnt all about the history of this beautiful building. We saw an interesting exhibition showing how underneath the Minster are lots of Roman remains and we learnt how the building has evolved throughout the centuries.
Next, we set off to York Castle Museum. There was a fantastic Victorian street, it was like stepping back in time. We experienced what it would be like to go to school in Victorian times. We also explored the old dungeons and saw what horrible conditions the prisoners survived in.
Straight after this, we went on a York river cruise. A local expert pointed out interesting sights along the Riiver. We were able to see how people protect themselves against the floods.
As a treat we enjoyed some delicious homemade ice-cream in the park.
After quickly catching our breath, we were off again! Next we went for a brisk walk along the old Roman wall.
We finished the day with a scary ghost walk through the City. Let’s hope we all sleep well tonight.
We are looking forward to Flamingo Land tomorrow!
On Thursday 19th May the whole school celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday. Each year group dressed up from a different decade of the Queen’s life. There was Punch and Judy, Maypole dancing and a giant street party with the whole school in the yard.
Let us know what you think of the photos.

After a short coach journey, Year 5 arrived in Todmorden car park ready to go. We followed the canal, crossed over the train track and climbed a hill (or maybe a mountain), before arriving at Dobroyd Castle. We found our rooms, had a quick lunch and set off for our first activities…
Mr Trier’s group:
We completed the nightline (a blindfolded obstacle course), learned to kayak on a lake, built and tested rafts, and even went caving! We had a fantastic time and can’t wait for tomorrow!
Mrs Schofield’s and Mr Donaghy’s groups.
First, we encountered the giant swing and had lots of fun watching each other’s faces as we flew through the air. Next, we entered the piranha pool where we had to navigate our way across dangerous waters – team skills were needed as we all completed the challenge. Our third activity was the knights quest which was full of problems and puzzles. To finish our activities we became Robin Hood or Maid Marion, testing our skills as archers.
