Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
On Friday the 24th of January the whole school took part in a recycling challenge that would really make them think about what they were using and wasting. We gathered all our waste from the day and sorted it. We investigated how we could reduce, reuse and recycle. We have decided to begin a compost bin for fruit and vegetable waste and we have ordered a plastics bin to begin our war against plastics! We will continue to recycle card and paper and try hard to reduce our use of all of these materials! Together …. We can make a difference!!
History Trip: The Stone Age Village
On the 23rd of January, class Neptune visited Murton Park for an educational school trip. Murton Park, which is in the far side of York, teaches you about varied time periods in the past. When we arrived we were greeted by a man dressed up in Stone Age clothes. As we walked through the room he explained to us about the life of a Stone Age person and how we as humans evolved from apes. Also, as a class we participated in many activities such as: dressing like prehistoric people; recording ancient artefacts in an Argos (Ugos) catalogue; hunting fake animals with leather spears; grinding wheat with a flat-sided stone; burrowing trenches in muddy soil pits with a wooden tool; and making and decorating old-fashioned clay pottery. At the end, Bear (the camp leader) told us a story about two men found a Stone Age body buried in the snow in the middle of the Alps whilst trudging back home before sunset. We were all distraught when we had to leave but we learnt a huge amount!
