Learning about the past

Pit Closures…

As we reach the end of our topic on our local history of coal mining Class FS discovered the extreme action the miners took going on strike for a year to save their pit. We considered the arguments from both sides but wanted to experience what peaceful protest would feel like. We made our own signs and banners and proudly paraded them around the playground.

Safety on the Roads!

Alison Cooper (Barnsley Road Safety) recently visited school to work with Mrs Conway and our road safety officers. Classes MB, SH and SG enjoyed learning about staying safe on the roads. They listened very carefully, saw how to cross the road safely and answered lots of questions. A big thank you to everyone who helped and reinforced the important message to ……..STOP!……..LOOK! and ……….LISTEN! whenever you are close to the road!

Portals to the Past

Class EF had a very interesting and fun day learning all about the Stone Age. ‘Portals To The Past’ workshop came in and taught us lots of new facts to do with life in the Stone Age. By the end of the day the children were experts in how the Stone Age people lived. ‘One of my best ever days at school!’ said one of the children as they were leaving the school hall.

More work from our TASC day!

Class EF had lots of fun taking part in Tasc Day, we played board games and designed our own game. We wrote a set of instructions on how to play each game, all in all a very interesting and enjoyable day with lots of fantastic ideas!

Sh….. what can we hear?

Class MB went on a listening walk around our school, with their extra big ears they listened very carefully and were surprised at all of the different sounds around us. Children playing………  teachers talking……..  dinner ladies cooking and lots and lots of laughter!


Thinking Actively in a Social Context

Class FS have had a fantastic day researching the board games that are currently available and then designing and making our own. This week we will be writing the instructions and creating advertisements to ‘sell’ these to our classmates.
