Yesterday class 1 visited the Beatrix Potter attraction in Bowness in relation to their ‘movers and shakers’ class project. They encountered ‘Beatrix Potter’ herself and were able to ask her questions about her life, books, and characters. They found out her favorite book was ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’ and that she used to live in Lindon before moving up the Lake District and into Hill Top Farm. Afterward, the whole class had the chance to wander around the museum and explore the world of Beatrix Potter. Everyone has a brilliant time and came away with big smiles and a fantastic understanding of Beatrix Potter and her work.
This week we started our year 6 Expedition Club, a brand new after school club designed to make the most of unique & beautiful location. With all 8 very eager years 6s on board, we took this time going through all their kit, for example, how to use their camping stoves, rucksacks, and sleeping bags. But most importantly, they used this time to practise putting their tents up and down. We think it might be time for a time trial next? How fast can the Year 6s successfully put up and take down their tent🤔
What a fantastic start to the term we have all had! Last Thursday, the children had their annual trip to the Westmorland Show, and despite the drizzly weather, everyone had a fantastic time! Whilst looking around the show, it allowed Class 2 to do some research regarding their current Geography topic “Sow, Grow and Farm” and for them to expand in their already growing knowledge of framing in the UK. Whereas Class 1 gathered information throughout the day to help them with their morning writing, and for then to expand their vocabulary and allow then to describe their day in detail.
