Week beginning 1-5-17

Year 3 

Next week Y3 children will be visiting Kingswood in Penistone for their residential. The children are really excited and are looking forward to challenging themselves to complete a range of activities. The activities include bouldering, abseiling, 3G swing, nightline, archery and a disco. The residential is always really popular with children as they learn to face their fears; some staying away from home for the first time.

The children who are staying in school will be baking, sewing and having a picnic as well as some creative artwork.

A fun filled week for Y3 children.
