Bewerley Park Residential - 27th-29th March
Class 3 have just got back from their residential to Bewerley Park. We took part in a variety of outdoor activities which encouraged team building and trying something new! We learnt about PIE- which stood for physical, instructions and encouragement when doing our activities to help each other to do our very best! We took part in: gorge walking, rock scrambling, climbing wall and zip wire challenges and rafting and canoeing.
Here are some of our memories below:
Year 6 French Transition afternoon at Tadcaster Grammar School
Our Year 6s had fun learning how to to read a weather report in French, learnt about clothing and practised their conversational French with other children from the area. Well done everyone. Many children from Year 6 won prizes as they were recognised by TGS staff for trying hard and being confident in their group.
Below is a clip of our Year 6s in action reading a weather report. Thank you to Ms Pinder and all staff for a wonderful day and for making this video.
