This month, Year 6 attended a 7 day, 6 night trip to England, staying in the beautiful city of York in North Yorkshire. The children had a packed itinerary for each day with trips, visits and themed days linked closely to their learning over the year.
We explored the city and its historical sites, learning about settlers from the past – Romans and Vikings. We marveled at the medieval architecture and strolled along the quaint streets. We even learnt about the city’s gruesome and ghostly past.
Our WW2 theme days perfectly complemented the learning we are now doing back in the classroom. Our day at Murton Park, a Living History Museum, was a fantastic learning opportunity where we were able to experience what life was like as an evacuee in WW2. Additionally we took a ride on a steam train through the moors and countryside, as well as visited a lighthouse, which feature heavily in our current class book for the term.
A trip to England would not be complete without fish and chips at the seaside or a hearty roast dinner. So Saturday was spent enjoying the fantastic British weather at Filey beach with fish and chips and the next day tucking into Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes! What a treat.
