Adventure Challenge Finals Day

 

We had a fantastic day on Tuesday at the South Yorkshire School Games Adventure Challenge Finals day at Abbeydale Sports Club in Sheffield. The children took part in four different challenges and worked fantastically well as a team, showing great team work, communication skills and resilience throughout. It was down to this performance that the team managed to secure the runners up for the whole of South Yorkshire. What an outstanding achievement and a huge well done to all involved

Year 3 Visit TESCO

Year Three enjoyed the Farm to Fork visit at the local Tesco, they explored the store to find out which countries some of our fruit and vegetables come from and even got to taste some of them. They spent time in the back of the store learning how different foods are stored…the big chillers were freezing.

European Fabulous Food

Year 3 have been learning all about the countries of Europe and have done some exciting food tasting. We have tried lots of foods from other counties including Spain, Italy and Germany. We loved trying all the different foods especially the tasty pizza! Did you know the “Pizza Margherita”, is a pizza garnished with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, to represent the national colours of Italy as on the Italian flag?
