welcome to the David Attenborough class

Welcome to The Attenborough's Page! Also known as Class 12. The class teacher is Miss Taylor and we are supported by Mrs Deakin. On our page we will keep you up to date with photographs of our experiences and examples of our outstanding work.

World War 1 Workshop Day

The children were very lucky to experience the day as a World War 1 recruit. The day began with an introduction to why the war started and the countries it involved. The children then were recruited and put through basic training. The children had so much fun and were totally immersed into what life was really like living in the trenches.

Class Representatives

Our school council members, Eco Ambassador and Fair-trade Leader have now been elected and are doing a fantastic job representing our class.

Sponsored Run

The Attenborough's decided that they would like to sponsor an animal, which would become our class mascot. We though of many fund raising ideas but the most popular one was the fun run. The children had so much fun. We raised £120!! This far exceeded our expectations and we were over the moon. Not only could we buy our class mascot, we were able to buy a mascot for each table!

Trip to York museum

This term we have been learning about World War 1.

We have visited the war museum at York where we found out about the countries involved in the war, how ammunitions were made and also got the chance to look at and hold some artefacts from the war.

We are all looking forward to the war museum that is being held in school.

David Attenborough

The children and I are keen fans of David Attenborough's work and when the opportunity came to name our class after a well known British inspiration we jumped at the chance to be called The Attenborough's.  During our transition week we produced some outstanding writing and art work inspired by David Attenborough.
