Which triangle is Wakefield famous for?
This half term the children have been focusing on cooking and nutrition and particularly looking at our local area in which we live. Our questions this half term allowed the children to look at the rhubarb triangle in more detail and find out why it is so important to Wakefield. In the hook afternoon, the children tasted lots of foods which included rhubarb to introduce them into the topic. More recently, the children had the chance to create their own rhubarb crumbles adding their own extra choice of fruit to personalise it. Last week all the children visited Oldroyd's rhubarb farm in Rothwell where they met the owners, discovered how the rhubarb is farmed and had chance to look inside the forcing sheds which grows the rhubarb. They had a fantastic time, take a look below to see what they discovered!
How dangerous is our planet?
This half term the children are investigating the title 'How dangerous is our planet?' for their creative theme. The children will learn all about volcanoes and earthquakes and the impact they have on human life.
In our Creative Hook lesson, we witnessed the aftermath of an earthquake in our classrooms. We learnt how to protect ourselves during an earthquake drill as well as what equipment we would need if we were trapped in our classrooms.
Have a look at the pictures below to see just what happened when an earthquake hit Snapethorpe school.
For our Autumn 1 always event the children decided they wanted to have a Halloween disco to celebrate being always children. Take a look at the fun they had at the disco.
Year 3 Autumn Walk
To help inspire their descriptive writing, children in year 3 recently took part in an autumn walk to Thornes Park to immerse themselves in an autumn setting. They had fun collecting autumn objects, which really inspired the vocabulary and writing back at school.
How does a rose cause a war?
This half term in creative year 3 and 4 children are learning about the 'War of the Roses'. They will learn about the famous battle, which took place at Sandal Castle as well as go on a trip to Skipton Castle. For our hook, the children took part in a class via class mock battle. The children came up with their own chants and really got involved in battling for the class.
