In Year 4 we are currently learning about the Romans so we visited the Yorkshire Museum where we had a workshop and learnt about Roman York.

Waterpark Residential Trip 


The children from both Year 6 classes; Kipling and Pullman had a wonderful time visiting Lake Coniston at the Waterpark Centre in the Lake District at the beginning of the school year.


They got to take part in some new activities that were both exciting, fun and challenging. These included both wet and dry outdoor pursuit activities such as; Canoeing, Kayaking, Wind Surfing, Team Canoeing (on a Viking boat), Sailing, Gill Scrambling, Climbing, Orieteering and High Rope activities.


Partaking in these activities allowed the children to push and challenge themselves to achieve new goals as well as overcoming several fears, it also enabled the children to learn how to work as a team to complete tasks successfully.


We were so proud of all the children for taking part in all the activities even if they were a little bit scared, well done.
