Learning inside and outside of the classroom!

Over the last few months there has been a lot going on at Team TPA. We have welcomed visitors a plenty and enjoyed some exciting trips out and about.

Team Jupiter had a fantastic trip to Harewood Estate learning all about the countryside and the animals that live in it. The Highland cows (or ‘coos’) were great to see up close. Later in the term the children also enjoyed taking part in a multisports competition at Selby College. The children were fantastic role models and excelled in a variety of sports.

Team Saturn had a great day learning all about sculpture and exploring the work of different artists at a workshop at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Following this, in November the children also enjoyed performing their very own dance piece at ‘Everybody Dance’ at York Theatre Royal. The children did brilliantly and the audience were certainly impressed. This was also a wonderful opportunity for the children to take part in some exciting dance workshops including a break dance session.

This term, Team Neptune had a great day out in York learning how to make pizzas at Pizza Express and also all about the history of chocolate at York Chocolate story. It was a wonderful tasty day out! The girls in Team Neptune also took part in a football tournament at Selby College where they competed against children in other schools as well.

Throughout the course of term we have also had visits from NSPCC, Blue Cross, Tadcaster Fire Service and our local Police Officer, PC Nick Woods. These visits have allowed us to learn all about keeping safe in a variety of ways including around dogs, near water and also online. As part of their history of transport topic, Team Jupiter were also given the opportunity to get up close to a fabulous classic car which was a real treat.

Children in Key Stage One and Two also enjoyed their trip down to our local church, St Mary’s, to celebrate the Harvest Festival. We loved singing our hearts out!

It certainly has been a fabulous term of engaging learning – check out the pictures to see us having lots and lots of fun!
