Whitby 2015: Day 2

Day 2 got off to a great start with all the children up, dressed and showered by 8.00am.  Breakfast was superb with lots of choice and the full English for those who wanted to prepare for the day ahead.
First stop was Whitby Museum where the children had plenty of time to look at the exhibits including some remarkable fossils.  They were amazing ambassadors for the school with fantastic behaviour that was commented upon by the staff.  They were very complimentary about the enthusiasm and good manners shown by all the children.
After the Museum the party set off for Saltwick Bay where they collected fossils.  The children absolutely loved finding the hidden treasures in the rocks and every child managed to find one!
There's still lots more to do before heading home tomorrow.

Whitby 2015: Day 1

25th March 2015  9.00pm
A brilliant first day for Year 5 in Whitby.  They have just arrived back from the night walk to the Whalebone Arch and Cook Monument.  The weather all day has been fine and the planned visit to the Lifeboat Station was a great experience.
The tide was being kind and enabled the group to enjoy a brief visit to the beach before dark.  The children have already found some fossils and that bodes well for tomorrow when the proper search for specimens takes place.
Time now for hot chocolate and bed because it's up with the lark in the morning to continue the adventure.

Meanwood Valley Urban Farm

It was a beautiful day down on the farm when both Reception classes visited Meanwood Valley Urban Farm to support their class work about the signs of spring.  There were plenty of animals to see and learn about including horses, sheep and chickens.

School Food Ambassadors

A team of Food Ambassadors met with with Lisa, our cook supervisor and Mel from the Catering Department to talk about school lunches.  The ambassadors had lots of interesting suggestions to make about how the lunches can be improved.  They would like more international dishes such as sweet and sour noodles and Mexican tacos!

St Mary's Church

Looks like the children in Year 1 had a great time when they visited St Mary's Church as part of their RE curriculum.  Thanks to Reverend Jude Smith for teaching the children all about this remarkable church on the Hawksworth Wood estate.
