Yorkshire Sculpture Park

We visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park on a beautiful fresh day in November. We explored the underground gallery and the vast open spaces filled with sculptures. We saw artwork by Henry Moore, a world-famous artist from Yorkshire, and some fantastic sculptures by an artist called Guiseppe Penone, whose huge bronze trees were incredibly lifelike. We all thought they were real trees until we actually touched them! One of the best things we saw was a disused deer shelter that had been converted into an art installation. It was a huge concrete space with seating all around the edge and a square hole cut into the roof. When we were sitting in it we all felt peaceful and calm as we gazed up at the sky. We had a great day, and there were so many different pieces of art that we all found something that we thought was great.

Graves Park

On a lovely autumn day we visited Graves Park to gather ideas for our upcoming Art Day. We took part in a leaf identification activity and collected all sorts of natural objects that we thought we could use in our art. The colours were amazing - there were so many beautiful greens, browns, reds and yellows to choose from. We each ended up with a bag crammed full of stuff! We also went on a long walk around the park and through the farm – with only a few complaints about tired legs. After lunch and a quick game of football, we headed down through the woods all the way to the bus stop. We were a little tired when we got back to school, but we had had a terrific day and gathered loads of inspiration for Art Day.

Treak Cliff Cavern

We visited Treak Cliff Cavern in Derbyshire. We took a tour through the cavern and learnt about rock formations and the history of the cavern, which included hearing about when Victoria children were forced to work in the cavern to mine the semi-precious mineral, Blue John. At one point, our guide turned off the cavern lights and we couldn’t see anything at all, not even our hand when we held it right in front of our face. We had a great day and will be writing all about it in our literacy lessons. The day ended with a walk from the cavern to the historic village of Castleton. On the walk, we learnt why one of the other caverns in Castleton has a rather amusing name!

Crucial Crew

Crucial Crew is a personal safety educational programme for Year 6 children. During our visit, we experienced simulations of real-life scenarios set in the home and the community. We visited a real courtroom and took part in a mock trial. We learnt about fire safety in the home – including escaping from a (simulated!) house fire. We also learnt about safety on buses, the roads, in parks and online. We even got to see what it was like in a (fake) prison cell! The day was great and we all came away with loads of new skills, which will help to keep us safe as we move closer to our teenage years!

Treak Cliff Cavern

We visited Treak Cliff Cavern in Derbyshire as part of our Prehistory topic. We took a tour through the cavern and learnt about rock formations and the history of the cavern, which included hearing about when Victoria children were forced to work in the cavern to mine the semi-precious stone, Blue John. At one point, our guide turned off the cavern lights and we couldn’t see anything at all, not even our hand when we held it right in front of our face. We had a great day, which ended with a walk from the cavern to the historic town of Castleton. On the walk, our teachers told us stories about medieval battles fought in the Hope Valley and we learnt why one of the other caverns in Castleton has a rather amusing name!

Creswell Crags

We visited Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge full of caves which were home to Neanderthals and early humans in the Ice Age. A guide took us into the caves and taught us about the tools, weapons and clothing commonly used in the Ice Age. We also saw cave spiders and a spider’s nest crammed full of dozens of spider eggs suspended from the cave’s ceiling. We learnt how to map a location using contour lines and a key. We also took part in a lesson about the theory of evolution. As part of the lesson we got to handle a human skeleton and examine a range of skulls that showed how humans have adapted over time to their environment. We had a brilliant day - it was great to get hands-on experience of many of the things we have been learning about in school.
