In English, we have been planning and writing our own non-chronological reports. The children did a fantastic job and included lots of interesting facts about Queen Elizabeth II. Can you remember any of the facts that you included?


This week, we had our school trip to Newstead Abbey. We had a fantastic day playing with Victorian toys, going into the nursery in the attic, seeing the maid's bedroom, making herb bags in the kitchen, seeing a magic lantern show and playing some Christmas games in the front parlour. What was your favourite part of the day? The children showed respect and pride from start to finish. They asked lots of interesting questions and showed off their wonderful knowledge about the Victorians. Some of the Newstead Abbey staff members commented about how impressed they were with all of their knowledge. Well done, Owls! We are super proud! Take a look at our pictures below:
