Reception Class w.e. 23-06-17

​This week the children have been busy in the underwater theme role play area which they have called ‘Mermaid Kingdom ‘.Many mermaids have been seen singing and swimming around the kingdom with snorkelers with flippers and masks try to catch them.
The children looked at and handled  a mackerel . They all  sketched the fish before taking prints with it.
At forest school the children used the copper beech tree shoots to make a fish shape. They then wove wool around the body and used it to thread different leaves to make the scales.

Week 3 Forest School

Our first full day at Forest School and the children were thrilled to be staying to cook and eat their lunch outside. Group 1 prepared some fantastic food for us. As the cooking cook they have to : Make the fire and keep it going, prepare all  the food the whole group eat. 2 snacks and a main meal as well as wash up the cooking utensils and pans used for cooking (the other children wash their own!)  Each group will produce a poster to share showing their budgeting skills as well as menu choice.
9 activities this week for the children to work through during the day. The vast majority managed to complete all the activities. They share some top tips with others such as do the quickest/easiest ones first, try and complete over half before lunch.
CHALLENGE 1:Mud slide.After repairing the slide last week the children were eager to slide down. More water was need as the weather had dried out the slide and when we poured water on it just disappeared into the ground!
We think we might bring a long piece of plastic next time and some washing up liquid.
CHALLENGE 2:Knots reef and clove hitch. each week we look at different knots. The reef knot is the best known and most useful parcel knot. It is the best knot for tying a triangular bandage. The clove hitch will be used to teach the children square lashing.
CHALLENGE 3:Clearing den site. In the a few week we will be building dens for den challenges. The children have to locate the best position for a den and then tidy the area removing any nettles etc…
CHALLENGE 4:Sketching seed and leaves from 3 different trees. This took place after lunch and it was lovely to see the children laying on the grass really looking closely at the leaves and seed.
CHALLENGE 5:Seed ID. The seeds of most trees are unique to the species of trees. We all loved to play with helicopters as children but could you name the tree it came from?
CHALLENGE 6:Collected as many leaf samples and ID them. To reinforce last weeks challenge of identifying native British trees the children.
CHALLENGE 7:Quiet Spot.5 minutes to sit and reflect and listen to the sounds of nature.
CHALLENGE 8:Collecting individual wood ready for next weeks challenge. Every week we have been revisiting our fire building skills so that when we start to make our individual fires we are ready to succeed first time. Collecting the correct wood is an  essential part.
CHALLENGE 9:Boats. This was a very open ended question and the children explored lots of different avenues. A boat for people to sit in, a fairy boat , speed boats. Great fun was had racing the boats. The only thing you were unable to do was touch your boat as it went down the beck.
 A big thank you to all our parent helpers today.

Cluster Rounders

Class 4 enjoyed playing rounders in the cluster rounders competition at Dobson’s field today. The weather remained cloudy but this didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. Fantastic fielding and magnificent batting was witnessed on all three pitches.

Art and Maths

In Maths we  have been looking at adding and subtracting negative number. Mrs Eldridge came into help with our ‘Art in the Dales ‘project. We experimented with different art mediums so we could choose which we thought would be best for our art work.
Please remember to start learning your lines for Oliver – only 10 days to go till the dress rehearsal!!

Class 1 16-06-17

​What a busy week we have had. We are busy practising the songs for Oliver. We helped count ducks for the summer fair which is on 23rd June. We made gingerbread men with Mrs Abraham as well as doing lots of phonics, maths, swimming PE and computers.

Move up Monday and Science

​On move up Monday we have been investing sound in science. Why does the big boom wacker make a loud sound? Sounds are vibrations that can travel through different materials. The pitch of a sound is how high or low the sound is. The loudness of a sound is how loud or soft it is.

Move up Monday

On Move up Monday we welcomed the new Y1s into our classroom. They enjoyed acting out various traditional tales with the new Y2s. We have all been learning the songs from Oliver, the Class 4 production that we help be the choir. More details will follow shortly regarding when the production is.  In Science we experimented with different types of parachutes. Ask your child which material made the best parachute?

Art in the Dales

As part of our ‘Art in the Dales’ project Mrs Eldridge is coming into school to work in all of our classrooms.
In class 3 she has chosen a photo- taken for the photograph competition and cut it up into squares. Children then have to recreate the image on their square- on a much larger piece of paper, in different art mediums such as pencil, paint, wax crayons. The picture is then put back together.
The children have also been creating landscape pictures using just the colours they can see. These will have items added to give depth to their picture.

Photography Competition

On Wednesday Mark Denton (landscape photographer) came into school to announce the winners of the photographic competition. All 97 children entered 2 photographs each, some where taken at home, at Marrick Priory, at Forest School and in and around school. Mark was amazed at the quality of the photographs and awarded many prizes. The runners up were Izzy Y6 and Indy Y3 and the overall winner was Kate Y4. It is hoped that some of the photos will be displayed later in the term.

Forest School June 2017

​This week at Forest School we looked at time management: The children had 10 activities to complete during the day . It was up to them what order they did them in ( logically some needed to be completed before other things could).  They had a group meeting -The adults at Forest School went away from the camp area  as the group had a discussion about the activities on offer.As a group they decided that Challenge 1 and Challenge 9 were best completed in the afternoon. aLL THE CHALLENGE HAVE COME FROM THE CHILDREN PLANNING FROM LAST WEEK.
CHALLENGE 1:Mud slide repairs- as the Y5’s had had so much fun on the mud slide it urgently needed extra mud. We discussed why the mud had gone from the slide and where we thought best to start putting the new mud. Top vs bottom. Mrs P helped by removing the nettles that had popped up on the slide.
CHALLENGE2:Knots- Slip and cow hitch. To be able to put up the basher it was useful to refresh the simple knots we would need.
CHALLENGE 3:Tree ID-  to be able to use the tree ID wheel to identify 5 different trees on site. This will be tested over the next few weeks without any ID wheel to see if the children have remembered.
CHALLENGE 4: Putting up a basher. To succeed at this activity you needed to have practised your knots and make 4 pegs.
CHALLENGE 5:Make 4 pegs using the lopper and knives.. This required you to think about how big a peg needed to be. Too small and it would break when you put any weight to push it in . Too big and it wouldn’t fir through the hole.
CHALLENGE 6: Making pictures using only parts of a tree. This could be as small as you wanted or as big. Some people worked individually and some as a small group. Some taking 10 minutes others taking over an hour!
CHALLENGE 7:Marshmallow stick. How long should it be? How thick should it be? Refreshing tool skills while making it.
CHALLENGE 8:Quiet spot. 5 minutes on your own. You must not talk, you must not be able to see anyone. Think about what you can hear, smell, think a time for reflection.
CHALLENGE 9:Dam building. Great team building exercise.
CHALLENGE 10: Cotton wool lighting. Each child was given a piece of cotton wool and the choice of fire lighter. How small a piece of cotton wool would like ? Which fire lighter was the easiest? Building skills for lighting their own fires in the last week.
As you can see the children had a pretty hectic day.
 Mark and Bob tended to the fire today and we enjoyed smores and hot chocolate.
The Y6 children are going to Forest School all day. This takes lots of planning on their part. They have to firstly:Plan the activities and plan the skills they need to refresh and learn,
Work as a small team (4-5) to come up with a meal plan for the day, 2 snacks and a main meal as well as drinks for the day. Then  they have to complete  a spread sheet to budget (£2.00 per child) whether they have enough money to cover all the food think they can buy. Next they have to make a comprehensive shopping list  to give Mrs .S to go shopping with. They need also to tell Mrs S what items of equipment they might need such as chopping boards knives, pans. Finally they have to produce a  laminated menu card for the rest of the group to inform them of the menu for the day.

Forest School Yr 6 Week 1

Week1 :
We tidied up the camp floor using rakes, and we also collected lots of big stick/logs for the log pile. It was pouring down so we stood under the trees while others collected hazard information for our health and safety reports.
Bob and Mark made us a great fire -even in the rain, to keep warm. The hot chocolate warmed my body, and the chocolate biscuits were delicious. In free time I jumped in the bog and got extremely muddy. As I got soooo muddy I had to wash off in the beck and also had the hose when we got back to school.
By Izzy
Today I went to Forest School in the pouring rain- we were all wrapped up in waterproof clothes, so it didn’t matter if we got wet as it just trickled off.  When we arrived it was drier under the trees we had to rake up the leaves and other debris, such as sheep poo, sticks and mud. It  made base camp looked more homely once we had finished this. The nettles were a hazard as they had grown loads in the rain, I also found some broken glass.
I collected wood with Lauren, I carried a big tree fallen tree by myself, this made me feel very proud.
The sheep are in the field at the moment and they are different colours. I am getting good at flicking poo- this depended on getting the right viscosity. too runny  it slipped off the stick, too hard it broke the stick.
The burning ,smoky fire kept me warm during snack time, the steaming hot,  hot chocolate I could feel trickling down inside me to my belly.
In free time I loved jumping into the bog. My hair went black! To rinse the mud off we went in the cold, freezing beck.
The best bit today was breathing in the fresh air .

Second round Drax Cup

Crakehall A cricket team spent the afternoon at Richmond Cricket Club plating the second round of the Drax Club. This time we played Colburn and Middleton Tyas.  In the first game we lost to Middleton Tyas by 15 runs and against Colburn we won by 60 runs. Middleton Tyas won both games and therefore got through to the final.
In the 3rd/4th place game we played Le Cateaux and narrowly lost by 4 runs. The children all bowled over arm which was  down  to their excellent coach Mr C.
In the final friendly game against Bedale, the hot and tired children played really well loosing only 4 runs.
A big thank you to Mrs Wade, Mrs Ramsey, Mr Cooper, Mrs Miller, Mr Shepherd , Grandpa Denton for their support on the pitch.

EYFS-The Teddy Bear’s Picnic

Today we spent the afternoon in the Butterfly Forrest having a ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic’.
We made our own sandwiches and helped our teddy’s to  enjoy being outside. They climbed trees, hide in the den , listened to a story and helped us eat our picnic.

EYFS Forest School

​This week at Forest School we all choose our own activities. Some children played in the mud kitchen making beautiful food, some built an animal house, some climbed trees. We had birthday cakes and hot chocolate around the big table and to  finish the session we sat in silence to listen to the sounds of nature. We could hear lots of different birds, the wind and the cars.

Science on ‘The Green’

​Class 4 enjoyed measuring trees on The Green today all in the name of science.
As part of a national audit the children had to work out:
The circumference of the tree, how tall the tree was, identify the tree and then work out how much carbon dioxide it could convert.
