We all had a fantastic day in the autumn sunshine at Castle Espie.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent surroundings, feeding the ducks and learning about the adventures of the Brent Geese as they complete their 5000 mile migratory marathon.
After lunch there was even time to play in the centre's adventure park before returning to school.
We have really hit the ground running this term as our pupils prepare for their final year of primary school! This term we have been working on gaining a deeper understanding of what we have been taught over the years and this has included understanding why and how we divide larger numbers. To understand better we have been using manipulatives to help visualise our learning. As part of our topic Flight, we have been looking at how to create our own bio-planes and also researching how hot air balloons flies as part of our explanation writing. In PE, we have been practising our dance moves by creating our own dances to different types of music. We have also been exercising our bodies by helping raise money for Sport for Schools after our very active visit from our very own Commonwealth competitor Christine McMahon.
