Hello from Ingleborough.

Hello from Ingleborough.

Hi everyone!

We arrived safely and in record time – no traffic or road works! We then had a leisurely stroll up to Ingleborough Cave to have a picnic lunch and our first exploration underground.

Lots of happy faces out playing on the lawn now.

Will check in again when we can!



Before the Easter holidays, Spanish club had a very busy and exciting week! We had a Spanish lunch together, where we ate ‘garbanzos con espinacas’ (chickpea and spinach stew) with ‘pan’ (bread), ‘aceitunas’ (olives) and a cup of hot chocolate for dessert. Everyone tried something new and enjoyed the taste of Spain!

Later that week we also performed our poem in assembly after 3 weeks of practice, saying the verses in Spanish. ‘El Sapo Verde’ (The Green Toad) is about a prince who wants to stay a toad and live in a pond, and the group made illustrations to go with their verses.




Here is a link to the White Rose Maths Hub ‘Problem of the day’. These are very useful practice for reasoning questions.

Problem of the day for KS1 and KS2


Have a look at this!

Very useful indeed.




Year Six amazed each other with their shadow puppets and pinhole cameras which were made for the homework alongside our topic exploring ‘Light’ in Science. Creations included a full shadow puppet enactment of an alternative Harry Potter tale, a shadowy take on the Wizard of Oz and many other brilliant pieces of work.
