We have had an excellent year so far, full of learning! Here are some of our highlights so far…

We started the year with Year 4 going to Nell Bank! This is where we learnt lots of new skills such as: orienteering, den building, identifying and classifying  and we even went on a 7 mile walk around Ilkley Moor!

We’ve also been developing our scientific knowledge by identifying teeth and their function and understanding how the digestive system worked! (We even created our own ‘poo’!)

We also campaigned to get recycling bins outside of our local shop after conducting research outside of our local shop and realising  we needed to save our world! Watch this space for the bin update…IMG_0183

We have also had many visitors in school such as famous authors but we really enjoyed working with Conrad who helped us to support our performing skills when performing poetry.

Year 3 have also enjoyed linking up with a school in Keighley through the School’s Linking ‘. It has helped to build positive relationships between different communities.
