Today Simeon Wood came to school he did an assembly which was started off by Holly and Holly playing their flutes. Simeon played a variety of flutes and even a bike pump and an old metal walking stick. The children asked questions and loved Simeon playing the water bottles. Simeon then went into all three classes and worked with the children. Thank you very much Simeon and Mrs. Pickavance for inviting him.

Groups of children in Class 3 have spent a busy afternoon in the kitchen making pizza swirls today. They were challenged to follow a recipe independently, working together as a group. Each group worked together very well, using their cookery skills and sharing out the roles and responsibilities – including the washing up! Their pizza swirls were delicious.








Last Wednesday Class 3 put on their costumes and stepped back in time to spend the day as living as Tudors at Shibden Hall in Halifax. Working with Mistress Jane and Lady Agnes, they had a tour of the house, examined Tudor household objects (including a frightening looking mouse-trap), learnt about the use of herbs and made 'tussy mussies', using herbs to help cure a range of ailments. They also found out that Master Robert liked a dead mouse to be dropped into his beer whilst it was brewing, as the decomposing body of the mouse helped make his beer extra fizzy … Yuck! One of the highlights of the day was seeing Lola and Edward being dressed up in full Tudor costume.

The children all looked fantastic in their costumes, so thank you to all the adults who went to so much effort at home to help but the costumes together.
