Sports Relief 2020
On Friday 13th March, staff and children made a fantastic effort in raising money for the Sports Relief charity! From buying bands and wearing our favourite sports shirts (there were lots of Leeds United kits around school) to making our own smoothies on the ever popular smoothie bike! As well as this, many children took advantage of Mr Freeman's introduction to Yoga session and learnt a range of poses and stretches.
We raised a total of £131.50 and had lots of fun achieving this! Thank you to all of our children and families who supported us with this event.
Jorvik Viking Centre and The Dig
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday last week, Phase 3/4 went on our exciting trip to the Jorvik Centre and The Dig in York. We have started our new topic, Viking Invasion, so it was the ideal time to go and find out lots of interesting facts and information. We got to experience life as it would have been like for Vikings invading England over a thousand years ago and see just how similar it was to life now.
World Book Day 2020
On Thursday 5th March, we celebrated the annual event of World Book Day! This year we had more and more children and staff dressing up as their favourite characters - some of us won book prizes for our efforts! Throughout the day we had some really exciting events including: our ever popular book swap; craft in the Library at lunchtime; teachers’ story-telling and a book sale, raising £30. All children received their £1 book token to use before the end of March. Children should also all have their Great Swarcliffe Readathon pack to raise money for furniture for our Library.
Thank you to all our families who supported this day, we all have a fantastic time.

ARTofCODE Coding Day!
Year 3, 4 and 5 got the amazing opportunity to learn about the art of coding. We had a visitor who showed us the possible jobs the children could have with coding experience.
Year 3/4 staff led four different coding sessions throughout the day. The children were able to experience virtual reality in our 3D words session and got to see a rocket being printed with a 3D printer. Another session the children took part in was BBC's Micro bytes, they coded the £12 computer and was able to make it repeat patterns. The third session saw the children coding a robot crocodile made out of Lego! The task was centred around sensors and they managed to make the crocodile chomp down on any finger brave enough to be put into its mouth! The final session was called 'Thinking Like a Computer', this workshop taught the children about literal thinking and problem solving.
The best part of the day was the rocket launch at the end! One rocket went as high as 500 feet into the air.

The day started off with our decorating of the school tree in the hall before we all went off to have a fun-filled craft day making cards, decorations, hats and even calendars! I'm not sure how many times we have heard Jingle Bells today but it has certainly put us all in the Christmas spirit!
