We had an amazing time in York when we visited The Chocolate Story. The children went on a food shop treasure hunt around the streets of York. They did some research in a traditional sweet shop as part of their history outcome. Then they learnt about the history of chocolate, chocolate in York and how to make chocolate in The Chocolate Story. They ate chocolate in every room of the tour and then they made their very own chocolate lolly.

A group of children chose to research Italian food. They made a map of Italy from pasta, created an amazing poster and went to make pizzas at Gino D'Campos!

This group of children decided to have a pop up British tea party as part of their geography final outcome. They made food from Northern Ireland and Wales and sampled a Victoria sponge and Tunnock's teacakes. They painted a map and they are all starting to locate the four countries that make up the United Kingdom.


A group of children went to visit Trinity kitchen so they could learn more about food around the world. They visited a sushi restaurant and looked at street food stalls from around the world in Trinity Kitchen. They had pizza and ribs and talked about which countries the food originated from. Last week the children looked at a world map to locate the countries and wrote about their visit. The work will be put into the form of a guide book as part of their geography final outcome.


Sarah, our Place2be school project manager,  created a story for KS1, the story is called “The boy with the ocean in his tummy”, the story explored feelings and how the children could communicate those feelings to a parent/carer/teacher. Sarah incorporated: shadow puppetry, rhyme and music to tell the story of Luca, a brave young boy, who learns about his feelings and decides to open up to his Nan.
The children thought the story was amazing and they could discuss it afterwards with a very good level of understanding.

When they returned to school they talked about their visit to the rest of the class.

Class 4 had a great time at Temple Newsam on Thursday! We spent the morning having a fantastic art workshop all about portraits. In the afternoon, we looked at the different animals in the farm and played in the adventure playground.

The children chose to represent their families in different ways. Take a look at their family trees.

As part of the pupil initiated work about the history of toys, this group decided to learn about the history of teddies. They wanted to bring their teddies in so we can use their photographs as part of the timeline (to be completed shortly). Other pupils also wanted to bring a teddy in so we had a fun day with a full class of teddy bears!

Look at these wonderful rag dolls Immogen made at hope after our visitor came in. Fantastic work Immogen.
