Base Two Campfire!

Our forest school campfire was a great success! The children got to experience being around a campfire, toasted their own marshmallows (which were huge!) and created some wonderful shelters, which got water tested too! With some mixed results! We even had a visit from Mrs Ingle and Mrs Mellor who brought the Reception class out to see the campfire. Our whole afternoon as fantastic and we proved that we are all amazing team workers, creative thinkers and independent learners, well done Base Two!

Ancient Egyptian Museum!

Base 2 have been working extremely hard in their topic lessons about Ancient Egypt and would like to present their learning, and their creative homework, to their grown ups.  We would like to invite you to come to school to be shown around our Crossdale Museum this Wednesday.  We understand that this is short notice but if you would like to attend, please arrive at the front gate for 14:55 on Wednesday (24th) so that a member of staff can let you in.  The gate will be closed just after 15:00 but those who arrive after this time can still make their way through the office.  Thank you for your support in advance.  Miss Jackson and Mr Brierley.
