Wildlife Park Trip

Today, we had a fantastic trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster. We saw lots of different animals that we would see if we were able to visit Kenya, which is our contrasting locality in Geography this term. Everyone was beautifully behaved and enjoyed seeing the animals in real life.

DT- Pizza Making

We had a wonderful day making our pizzas. We applied our knowledge of using the claw grip and bridge hold to chop our vegetables so they could be added to our pizzas. We discussed how creating a vegetarian pitta bread pizza, was a healthier choice. 

The children loved taking them home to eat and share with their family.
