Starlings have had a brilliant week in school.

Hall Lee Bank Park Visit

Date: 10th Dec 2020 @ 5:02pm

Today Starlings visited Hall Lee Bank Park as part of our learning about the rainforest in Geography. We ventured through the park and immersed ourselves in the visual comparisons between the park and an actual rainforest. We found that the trees were so high that we could really picture the four layers of a rainforest. We followed directions on a map and found some points of interest along the way which was great fun.

We had a fantastic morning in Starlings Class!

Deforestation in Starlings

So far this term we have learnt a lot about deforestation and the effect it has on rainforests and people. This week, we split into two groups 'for' and 'against' and argued our cases. Both sides were very convincing but overall, we decided that we were against deforestation in rainforests.

Remembrance Day in Starlings

Date: 11th Nov 2020 @ 4:52pm

This year we were lucky enough to host the Remembrance Day assembly. Everyone in class worked extremely hard to read and learn their lines and it was a touching start to a very special day. You can find the assembly by following the two links below. (Starling Class Assembly) (The Last Post- Performed by Mrs Richmond)

We then placed our poppies outside at the front of the school as a sign of respect for those people that died in battle locally and worldwide.
