Year 3 Visit – Danby

The children in Year 3 have recently visited the North York Moors Visitor Centre in Danby, North Yorkshire.

We had a fantastic time there and had the opportunity to do a range of outdoor activities. These activities included:

Shelter building – Using a range of natural materials to create a comfortable yet sturdy shelter. The children worked brilliantly in teams to ensure they completed their mission.

Natural art – Using clay and a variety of twigs, sticks, seeds, leaves and pebbles to create the image of a god or goddess, which was displayed on the trunk of a tree.

Science – The children reviewed their understanding of photosynthesis in plants and became skilled at identifying a range of woodland plants and trees. They also had the opportunity to hunt for mini beasts in their natural habitat.

Ornithology – We used a woodland hide to observe a variety of birds and name them.

We hope you enjoy the photos!
