We’re off, we’re off…

Author: Mr.C | Filed under: General News

After an exciting morning of building siege towers, launching boulders at each other and dressing up as all the different invaders and settlers of Britain, we’ve now left Castleton and are on our way back (booooo). But, we now also have full access to the internet again! (Hooray!).

We’ve all got lots of exciting stories about the activities we’ve been enjoying and can’t wait to share them, along with lots of pictures, with you.

See you soon!

Good morning, Rochdale.

Hello to everyone at home,

Due to poor internet connections we have only sporadically, and very briefly, been able to access the internet! We’ve just been able to access the internet, so here’s a quick update before we lose it again!

All  the children had a fantastic day yesterday, treasure hunting for hidden words, taking part in a Roman battle and even having a go at archery!

The children were all fed well for tea and then have made their own fossil casts.

We have lots of great pictures of all this, but due to the internet problem will not be able to upload until our return to school.

This morning we are learning more about Roman history and taking part in lots more activities.

See you all this afternoon!

Castleton trip update

Author: bhall | Filed under: General News

Poor mobile reception is making it difficult for the staff to blog directly from Castleton, however, i can confirm that everyone was fed and watered yesterday evening and they all enjoyed a good night’s sleep.

They have had breakfast this morning and are raring to go today!

Lest we forget.

Author: Mr.C | Filed under: General News

As this year is the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, we have taken part in a very special way to commemorate this. In Paddington Station there is a statue of an unknown soldier reading a leader. Nobody knows what this letter is about. Letters to an unknown soldier is project which which is inviting the entire country to think about what the letter might say and write their own. Many famous people have already contributed, such as Stephen Fry, and now 3b have created their own book full of letters! We will be submitting our letters to the project as well.

Here is what we created, full of well thought out letters.
