News and Events

The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

As part of our work on the Queen's Jubilee we dedicated an afternoon to history, learning about the Queen's early life and a time line of events in her life. During a geography afternoon we completed work on the Commonwealth and looked closely at the island of Jamaica, comparing it to where we live. We also enjoyed making Jamaican coconut rock buns. 

We also spent an afternoon looking closely at portraits and photographs of the Queen before sketching our own portraits of her. On Friday we made crowns ready for our Jubilee lunch before taking part in an afternoon of jubilee activities and celebrations with family and friends. 

Skipton Castle 

As part of our history topic on castles we went on a class trip to Skipton Castle. The children had a brilliant day, consolidating learning from the classroom about the construction of castles whilst gaining more knowledge about life within the castle walls. The following day the children were able to answer many questions and complete tasks based on our visit and what they now knew about the various rooms and life in the castle. 

As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations we worked with Dr Duncan Slater from Myerscough college to plant trees in the new car park area of St Hilda's church. 

On World Book Day we came dressed as our favourite book characters and shared our favourite books with our friends. We spent the day reading for pleasure and completing book related activities.
