We are now on the coach ready to set off. We will be leaving at 1.30 and should arrive back at school at 3:30, we will keep you updated on our journey. The children and Mascots have had a fabulous time. Cheeky said that this has been the best residential he’s ever been on and this is his 3rd visit to Whitby.
The children had decided if we couldn’t see the bell ringing they would like to do a talent show to showcase talents that we had not seen before. When we returned from bell ringing the children asked if it could still go ahead as they had been thinking about their talent all day. We were so proud of the children, Rowan writes his own songs. Fatima, Zahrah and Falak formed a girl band. Clara and Katie performed a comedy sketch. All the children performed to a high standard and all children took part. We were really pleased with how supportive they were of each other and this really helped the children grow in confidence. Good night everyone, I am sure you are all looking forward to having them home tomorrow.
Group B visited the upstairs gallery at the Abbey this morning to investigate and research about the history behind it. The children have managed to see artefacts that are over 800 years old and compare them to similar objects we have today.
Cleo found out that instead of having a coin to represent a half penny, they simply just cut the penny in half.
The children have listened to the interactive programmes which has given them an insight to the lives and type of people that once lived at the Abbey.
