Wednesday 27th November, was Lancashire day and the ambassadors went to Northlight, which is next to the Leisure box. However, all the children celebrated it on Friday 29th November. There were lots of activities like speaking the old Lancashire language. There were also art activities and a bit of learning with a food stall in the hall. It was not a day with no uniform however it was still amazing and exciting. There was also outfits we could wear and dress up and play with our friends. Not forgetting the yummy food in the hall was food stalls there was Parkin and some drink ( Vimto and an other Lancashire drink) also some biscuits also there were some cheese and crackers. We had a lot of fun on Lancashire day having fun with our friends and eating yummy foods also playing some games and coloring which was very fun. We would like to give a big thank you to Mrs Woods and every other staff members who helped the children learn new things they never knew about on Lancashire day.
Year 5 have recently visited Tatton Park. On the 12 of November, 5KJ went to Tatton Park. 5AD went on the 13 of November. The reason they went was because year 5 are learning about the Victorian era and Tatton Park is a Victorian mansion. The year 5 learnt how to make scones they also learnt how to make a fire from wood, newspaper and coal. They were split into groups. They got to look at the garden from the room that they made the fire in. In the cellar was a wine section. In the cellar, there was meat covered in salt and wrapped with hessian. There was a coal room next to a track. The boys had to put their hands behind them and the girls had to put it in front of them. Upstairs, their were old pictures of kings and queen. Also they made beds.
On the 7th of November, year 3 went to Skipton castle and they have learnt some new things about it. They got a free tour guide The children learned that the best prisoners get the best food. It is approximately 900 years old. They went into the tower. There were square shaped toilets no showers. The prisoners fell 40 feet above ground if they annoyed the soldiers. The first activity was to remember the name of the towers. They also got to sit on the cannons ,that were rusty. There were several dirty wood and only 1 table didn't break or get as dirty as the other tables. There were some arrow loops. The only people who were allowed to enter the castle was if they had to do jobs in the olden times. The year 3 children, who went to Skipton castle, also done more activities and finally they came back to school therefore they could go home at normal time.
On the 5th November, it was bonfire night and the lots and lots of fireworks. At Townly Park, there were lots of fireworks and also a funfair and it is also on at that same place on Saturday 9 November. We celebrate bonfire night because once a man called Faulks and his helpers tried to bomb the house of parliament. He didn't like what the king and the mp thought therefore he tried to bomb it on the day the king was visiting the mp. However the king found out and some people who worked for the king stopped the bombing and the man Faulks and his helpers died. This is the reason we celebrate bonfire night because the king did not die. This story tells us that do not try to kill someone if you don,t agree with them.
We are Year 6, our blog will feature the exciting things we do and learn in school.
