Hello and welcome to another week at Copthorne.  How quickly this year is going by, I cannot believe we are going to be in the month of December this week.  Please see below for events that are happening in school this week.

This week at Copthorne

Year 5 Visit to Leeds City MuseumImage result for leeds city museum

On Tuesday 1st December, 5 willow will be travelling to Leeds City Museum as part of their Copthorne Curriculum theme ‘Age of Empires’. Whilst at the Museum, the children will be taking part in Ancient Greek workshops as well as handling artifacts and exploring the galleries.  I know the children will learn lots of interesting facts while visiting the museum.


KS2 Boccia CompetitionImage result for boccia images for children copyright free

Mr A Khan will be taking a group of KS2 children to Grange Technology to take part in a Boccia competition.  Boccia is a game that is similar to bowls and is an all inclusive sport.  The children have been practising very hard and we wish them the very best of luck.  Go Copthorne!


White Scar Caves – Year 3Image result for white scar caves copyright free

3 Alder will be visiting White Scar Caves at Ingleton on Wednesday 2nd December.  This visit has been arranged to link in in with the science and Copthorne Curriculum topic ‘Rocks and the Stone Age’. The children will be exploring in caves and also looking at difference types of features such as stalagmites and stalactites.  I am sure the children will have a fantastic day.

York’s Chocolate StoryImage result for York chocolate story images copyright free

As part of their curriculum, Year 6 are learning about Ancient Maya.  We have organised a visit to York’s Chocolate Story on Thursday 3rd December where they will participate in an educational workshop.  This will give the children a unique insight into the Mayan civilisation for whom chocolate was an integral part of life.  I hope the children have a fantastic day and hopefully they may bring the rest of school a treat back – in the form of chocolate of course!
