As part of their topic on the Mayans, Year 6 travelled to York on Tuesday to explore the origins of chocolate at York Cocoa Works. They also enjoyed a long walk around the city and were able to contrast it with Barnsley. A brilliant time was had by all!
Our Year 3 children were treated to a visitor this week. Their topic this half term has been the Stone Age and they were lucky enough to have a visit from Outback2Basics who came to present a workshop on life way back then. The children shared a huge variety of artefacts as welll as trying their hand at some painting
On Tuesday, Mrs Scully organised another whole school art day. The theme this time was, ‘My School’. The children considered different ways of shading in their warm up exercises before moving on to some observationla drawing later on. It was great to see somuch concentration and hard work form the children over the course of the day.
