Class News and Activities


Today we went on our the Year 5 and 6 pilgrimage around Linthwaite. We thought about Edenezer Stones and made our own cairn. Mrs Travis taught us about George Mallinson and Florence Lockwood, two very important people in the history of Linthwaite.

Our images of God

In RE we have created images of our personal views and visions of God. Children were allowed to choose their own media to express themselves. We included words in our images which we felt described God.

Autumn Outdoor Learning Day

Today has been our Autumn Outdoor Learning Day in Y5. We began the day by planting bulbs in around our school. We thought about our hopes and dreams for the new year as we planted them. We then did an insect data collecting activity with Mr Taylor. In the afternoon we did lots of team building activities.
