At Woodthorpe we are very lucky to have such a wonderful natural resource: our forest! Every year group has the opportunity to explore and investigate the natural world first hand. From pirate topic launches, den building, scavenger hunts, forest weddings, mini beast hunts, making clay faces on trees, working across year groups to build relationships and look after the younger children to planting more trees to help extend our forest we do a bit of everything there and we love it! It allows us to have the independence to lead our own learning and develop key skills such as perseverance, problem solving and risk-taking. See some of the activities that we have done this year in these pictures.
This week, 20 children from KS2 joined 1000 other school children from all over York at the Brownlee Foundation mini triathlon at York Sport Village. The event included a 30m swim followed an 800m bike ride and finally a 300m sprint to the finish line where the children were greeted by a goodie bag and medal. Everyone who took part did amazingly and it was definitely a day to remember!
Our year 5/6 Basketball team took part in a Basketball tournament against other schools from across York. We were lucky enough to have 3 teams representing Woodthorpe, with one team coming an amazing second place in the tournament All the teams played brilliantly- well done Woodthorpe!
