Victory Leisure Trip

Wow! What a fantastic day we had visiting Vistory Leisure Caravan factories!

Some of our year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a fantastic real-life learning experience and had the opportunity to witness first-hand how some of the most luxurious caravans in the UK are made! Not only that, but various members of staff were more than happy to share their expertise and chat with the children about their route into this line of work and tips on the children could follow in their footsteps.

     

It was amazing to step foot inside the huge factory and see how much team work is involved in assembling the caravans

We were particularly amazed by the workmen’s vending machine…No chocolates and drinks in here – just tools and equipment to be dispensed!

   

It was great to chat to the lead graphic designer whilst he showed the children his high-tech software!

Mary was also keen to chat to the children about her job as an interior designer and how she furnishes and decorates the inside of the caravans.

 

And finally, the children completed a caravan designing task and shared their plans. The winning group were pleased with their prizes of giant chocolate bars!

ABP Container Competition

Last Friday saw Ellie, Kitana and AJ travel to ABP to see the unveiling of their art work on a brand new shipping container. They won the competition, in association with Hull Children’s University, after attending a Digital Art module at the KCOM learning zone. They took photographs in and around Hull Maritime Museum and learnt how to manipulate and edit their images using a variety of apps.  They were thrilled to see their finished piece represented on a brand new shipping container. The container has been fitted with a tracking device to enable the children to follow its journey around the world for a whole year!

 

Animals in Antarctica

Year 2 have been learning what animals live in Antarctica. They went on investigation to research the animals that live in Antarctica. Then they found out facts about each animal and put it into a non- chronological report!
