Julia from Nature Safari visited us and brought some of her pets. We were surprised to learn that all the animals live at home with her. She told us lots of information about looking after the animals and about what makes each one special. Some children were keen to hold and stroke the animals, but she taught us a special signal so we could let her know if we were nervous!
On Wednesday, Year 4 had a bit of a Roman adventure. We has a Roman soldier visit us for the entire day! During his time with us, he taught lots of interesting facts about the life of a Roman soldier. We made oil lamps and even practised our shield and spear techniques! Even though we think it must have been a very hard life, some of us still wanted to join the Roman army at the end of the day (we must enjoy the idea of travel and adventures). Have a look at the pictures of our day.
This week especially, following the horrific events in Manchester, the whole of High View PLC took part in a 1 minute silence at 11 o'clock to show our respect.
Today we went outside to do some sketching of the landscapes that we saw on the front playground. We had so much fun. Theses are some of the pictures.
On a very rainy Monday last week, Year 6 went to Tropical World (in Leeds) as part of their Rainforest topic. The behaviour by the whole cohort was superb. They were very excited to see the different animals that live in the various layers of the rainforest and took lots of beautiful pictures to help them with their work. Unfortunately, the weather was so bad that, after spending as much time in Tropical World as possible, we had to eat our picnic lunch quickly under the shelter of the trees, then head straight back to school! Everyone agreed that it was still a brilliant trip though!
All of our classes will be contributing to the school news blog regularly.
