We have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy. As part of our art lesson this week we went out into the woodland with Juniper class. We created our very own Andy Goldsworthy inspired pieces of artwork.

This week in science the children have been exploring series circuits. Everyone successfully managed to create a simple series circuit to light a bulb. Some children managed to get buzzers to sound and even motors to spin!
Tuesday 19th September 2017
Today our school day started earlier than usual as we headed off to the city of York to visit Jorvik Viking Centre and The Dig.
We were met by a Viking at Jorvik who told us all about what to expect on our visit. We headed down the stairs 3 meters underground and saw the glass floor. It was very strange to walk on but we saw evidence of Viking York beneath our feet! Next we boarded the cars and headed off on a tour of Viking York, there were lots of new sights and smells we weren't quite use too.
Next we headed to The Dig a little walk away where we ate lunch, we were all starving at 11:30! Ross was our guide this afternoon and took us on an archaeological journey of discovery. We got to dig, shake, see and feel our way through four different excavation pits before handling 1000 year old artefacts. We had to use different skills to identify what the different artefacts were and what they were used for. The highlight of our afternoon was getting to hold 1000 Viking poo!
