Changes to Friday afternoons
Friday 16th September | 4 comments
On Friday afternoons, the Y2 children will have a change to their usual routines. All the teachers in Key Stage 1 will get their Planning, Preparation and Assessment non-contact time and the children will be doing a range of lessons on a rotation: RE, farming, computer coding, ‘Food and Cooking’ and a series of local visits.
The local visit this half term is down to Rodley looking at the canal, river, bridges and train line. The children will learn about the difference between a river and a canal. They will also look at an old map and see how the area around Calverley Bridge has changed having had a mill, a weir and a train station previously. The first group seemed to enjoy their 90 minute visit this afternoon and were very observant. They particularly enjoyed exploding Himalayan Balsam seed pods.
Mrs Kenny will generally lead the local visits and we are grateful to Mrs Briggs for coming today as a volunteer. The are other volunteering opportunities on a Friday afternoon – please get in touch if you can help.
