Our amazing residential at Malham Tarn...
What an amazing experience! We set out on Thursday morning to the beautiful Field Studies Council site at Malham Tarn.
Upon arrival, we met Sam, our guide at the site. After unpacking our bags in our rooms, we took part in lots of team-building games. These included using piping to get a tennis ball down the hill, attempting to get all members of the team through a 'portal' in the quickest time (the portal being a tyre inner tube), navigating a hook using ropes and building towers of tyres!
We then split off into groups to go orienteering around the grounds - this was super tough and relied on our map-reading abilities.
After a tea of pasta and garlic bread and a play in the grounds, we went on a night-time walk to experience the grounds at night, as it was far too wet for a campfire. This took a lot of nerve for some of us... but we did it!
After a good night's sleep ( ) and a lovely full English breakfast, Sam took us on a walk around the Tarn. This was not only visually stunning but also really interesting as we stopped off at different points to learn about the history, the plants and animals and the local area. Once we got back to the house, we ate the dinner we had prepared ourselves earlier and then got back on the bus home, tired but happy!
We are very proud of you Green Class. Your behaviour was fantastic and you set the bar high for this year. Well done for facing your fears and trying new things; you are really living up to our class goal of being brave!
Life in Green Class...
Our wonderful Green Class have a jam-packed timetable and have lots of extra responsibilities.
As part of their status of our oldest and most responsible children, we have asked children to attend in a different uniform. This consists of a white collared shirt and a v-neck school jumper. Children have been presented with their school tie, which they have been taught to tie, and they look super smart.
Our PE day is Friday and children must come to school in their PE kits (white t-shirt, dark shorts and black pumps - tracksuit bottoms and jackets can be worn in Winter).
Homework will be set on a Friday and returned the following Friday. This will consist of independent tasks for English and Maths. The children will also be responsible for practising their times tables and spellings as well as reading regularly. Reading books can be changed when needed as the children are responsible for completing the progress quizzes in class. Children can organise themselves and their independent learning by using their homework diary- bring this to school everyday!
Wednesday will remain ‘Welly Wednesday’ and children will need suitable footwear and a coat when it becomes cold and wet so we can take our learning outdoors! We do have a limited amount of outdoor wear for the children to borrow so you do not need to buy anything.
We ❤️ Reading!
Outdoor Learning in Green Class... it’s good to be GREEN!
