Welcome to Griffin Class
In Year 5 we provide the opportunity for the children to take part in a Young Voices concert. This is a fantastic event and one which the children who attend will remember for a long time. Please explore the website to find out more.
A Child's War
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead! Take cover, it’s 1939 and Britain is at war. We hear why nations are fighting and why children must be moved from the cities. We see the destruction of buildings during air raid attacks and wonder at the amazing spirit of people under siege.
On Wednesday 7th November we visited Perlethorpe Environmental Education Centre for a WW1 experience. We were met by Sgt Ringwood and put through our paces. We found out lots of interesting facts about life on the frontline during WW1. We made a poppy display which will be laid outside Perlethorpe church at the Remembrance Service on Sunday 11th November. We have also contributed some poppies for a display in the gallery at Thoresby Estate where we visited the regimental museum. There we were able to visit the WW1 trench reconstruction which gave us an even better insight into the life of a 'Tommie.'
¡ Hola España !
On Monday 22nd October Griffin class set off on a great adventure. We have been learning about 'el camino de Santiago' in northern Spain. We have walked our own 'camino' but in North Lincolnshire. It was a total of 8.5km and we walked along the Chesterfield Canal to West Stockwith and then back along the River Idle towards Haxey, where we met the bus to be taken back to school. The weather was fantastic and we had a brilliant day.
This half term we will be exploring the amazing country of Spain.
Spain borders the Mediterranean Sea in the South and East. In the North, the Pyrenees form a natural border with the tiny country of Andorra and also France. In the northwest lies the Atlantic Ocean and in the west is Portugal.
Here are some interesting facts about Spain's geography:
