What we’ve been up to…
Some of our Year 5 children enjoyed their first language trip to watch a French clown at Edale Rise Primary School . They visited the school and then experienced a French restaurant managed by a very funny man and his puppet. All the pupils had a wonderful time and loved the fussball breaktime before the play.
A huge well done to Eddie, Joseph, Walter, Oliver, Kieran, Daniel, Nerys, Megan, Grace , Soraya, Hannah and Maisie, who all competed in a swimming gala this week. The children swam fantastically well, winning many of their races and with some close second places. Overall, the team placed in third position and were delighted to come home with a bronze medal each. The children were brilliant ambassadors for the school, congratulating and cheering on their competitors.
Some children from 1K have written about our trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in May. Just to clarify, Mr Knight was not on the school trip. In Australia he had an altercation with a kangaroo when Mrs Knight, Mr Knight and their family were on holiday in 2015.
Year 1 went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and the polar bear was sitting in the water. I saw a giraffe in the distance. There were peachy brown camels. I spotted a leopard in the distance. There were 2 brown bears. There were wallabies and there was poo!! I loved my packed lunch. FC
This term year 1 1went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park and we say loads of animals there. WE saw 2 brown bears and we saw a rhino that we eating some grass. I was scared of the tigers and we saw peachy brown camels in a group. We say a baby wallaby in its mothers pouch and there was lots of poo! JH
1K and 1F went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We saw lots of animals – tigers, lions and more. Some were very cheeky. The giraffes were tall. I was scared. The teachers guided us. We saw a brown bear just like in the Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? book. Nature is clever. We saw a snake. You have to be careful because they are wild. My favourite one was the snake. It was fun. They were weird. BW
Year 1 went to the zoo. I was tempted to go. The animals were east to spot. Some animals were very delicate. It was funny when James and Eloise were acting out when Mr Knight fought a kangaroo. JG
Year 1 went to Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We had loads of fun. I saw some lions and I saw a camel. We learnt about animals. We had the chance to hold the animals and stroke the animals. After we finish we had to wash our hands. Mr Knight fought a kangaroo. We saw a wallaby. You have to be careful. MH
Year 1 went to the zoo. We saw a lion. We went to have lunch. I was terrified of the tiger because they are meat eaters. My favourite animal was the tiger. HA
