A Christmas Journey


Our Year 2 pupils were invited to spend the afternoon at Almondbury Methodist Church to learn about the Christmas journey. The children enjoyed learning through storytelling and puppet theatre and were also able to make a Christmas card to take home with them.

Remembrance day 2021


All pupils visited the Thurstonland war memorial on Thursday 11th November to pay their respects and reflect on the sacrifices made by those who served in the two world wars.

Reception & Year 1 pupils visited earlier in the day and left their painted stones and wooden memorial crosses at the memorial. They have also produced some beautiful poppy paintings as can be seen in the photos below.

Years 2,3,4 & 5 visited the memorial and observed the two minutes silence at 11am. Villager and friend of the school Tony Clifton played The Last Post followed by Reville, and pupils laid their wooden crosses from each year group along with a wreath on behalf of everyone at school. Alice Hosker also read out the poem Flanders Fields.


We enjoyed a really busy Harvest celebration in church with Reverend Sean leading us through the service. All the children sang beautifully and it was a lovely feeling to be back together as a school community.



Year 2 Multi-skills

Visit to Danelaw


We experienced what it would be like to live as a Stone Age person. We spent time in a Stone Age village and named ourselves the Fox Tribe. We took part in different activities including farming, grinding corn, making a clay pot, cave art and going on a 'hunt.' We also spent time being archaeologists; studying objects and thinking about how they would have been used.

Castle Hill visit


We visited Castle Hill as part of our history and geography learning. Archaeologists have found evidence to show early man lived there!

We practised using a compass and looked for geographical features. We also did some sketching of the landscape. 

Stone age bread making!

Take a look at the photos below of our stone age bread making activity, completed in class as part of our history learning.

We then ate our stone age bread around a class 'campfire'!

Circus Sensible workshop


Year 4 & 5 pupils were treated to an amazing Circus skills workshop delivered by Circus Sensible. Many new skills were learnt during the morning of activities such as plate spinning and scarf tricks. Thank you to the PTA for funding this exciting morning! 

Class trip to Tropical Butterfly House

We enjoyed a fantastic day out in class 2/3 at Tropical Butterfly House in Worksop to tie in with our work in class on mini-beasts. It was a lovely day, all the children (and staff!) enjoyed getting out and visiting this venue which is a favourite destination of ours. The day was well organised with two interesting workshops, the children had a great time and we were also lucky with the weather.

Please take a look at our Power Point of the day below!

Back at school we also conducted a search for mini-beasts.......see photos also below....
