Welcome to Adventurers

Children in Adventurers are in school Years 1 or 2. This means that children are between five and seven years old. Adventurers are taught by Mrs Roe. The children are also supported by Mr Everall.

In Adventurers, children are introduced to more formal teaching styles, with some play based approaches still being used. Children enjoy a lively and creative curriculum that builds on the successes of the Early Years Foundation Stage. At the end of Adventurers, children have SATs tests. These are in school assessments that measure the progress children have made since leaving Reception.

Chocolate Day! February 2019

This week began with a launch day to our new writing topic, investigating “How is chocolate made?” The whole school worked in mixed groups during the day to complete a range of activities based on making chocolate. We want our children to be able to write with real purpose and using experiences, so what better way to learn about making chocolate than by doing it!

 

Mrs Hann worked outside with the children on Monday, down in the forest. The groups worked hard to create their own mud chocolate creations, adding different textures and objects to give some added crunch to their recipes! The children hunted around the forest for interesting and unusual objects to add in. It was excellent to see all children of all ages supporting each other in this task.

 

To help our day be a success, we kindly received a donation of chocolate and materials for making our own lollies from Alex at Crofts Chocolates in Scarborough. With Mrs Roe, the children had the very exciting task of using this donation to make their own chocolate lollies. When I visited, each lolly was heaped with sweets and marshmallows, which made them look really delicious!

 

Mrs Walker and Mrs Exelby led the baking efforts on Monday. During the day, each child had the opportunity to create their own chocolate creations. Working together to carefully add the ingredients, mix them together and prepare them for baking was something that everyone enjoyed. If you were able to join us for the café in the hall during the afternoon, I am sure you will agree that they looked delicious!

 

Finally, with Miss Stubbs, the children created their own packaging for their chocolate lollies. After looking carefully at the designs of well-known chocolate brands, the children then came up with their own designs. It was fun to see how the children were using these brands to influence their own, with many adapting well-known chocolate names and designs.

 

At the end of the day, it was great to be able to invite so many families into school to see the children’s efforts from the day and read their stories in our chocolate café. The event was incredibly well attended, with it being said that the cake sale was “like a fair day!” This overwhelming support is amazing. Thank you to everyone!

 

Chocolate Cake

Friday 8th February 2018

This week has been an exciting one, after starting with our very own ‘Chocolate Day’! . We have now finished writing our chocolate stories, and wanted to share them with the other children in school. Here we are reading with the oldest children in school (Leaders).

Adventurers were also inspired to make their own chocolate cakes, with the help of Emily’s gran, after reading Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen.

School Trip

What a fantastic time we had at the Captain Cook Museum, at Stewart Park!

We learned a lot more about Captain Cook, through interactive displays, art and crafts, dressing up and writing with quills. 

Ask us what it was like sailing on the HMS Endeavour with Captain Cook. 

 

Multi skills

Year 1 and 2 took part in multi skills at Caedmon College.

We had a wonderful time trying all the activities set up by the sports leaders.
