Follifoot School: on Wednesday, June 12 Eagle Owls had the fantastic opportunity to visit The Yorkshire Show Ground and experience fantastic activities based around the theme Countryside Day. The children watched a sheep show where sheep performed dances to music, learnt how to build a dry stone wall. They visited the bee keepers’ pavilions and further developed their knowledge and understanding of bees. The children watched and learned all about sheep dog trial and finally made clippie rugs. It was a very busy and exhausting day but they thoroughly enjoyed new learning experiences that they would not have access to in school. On Thursday, June 13 the children were visited by Off Book Theatre Company performing Puck of Pook’s Hill (a famous fantasy novel by Rudyard Kipling). The children watched a cast of puppets and actors taking them on a magical journey through Britain’s early history. They discovered tales of forgotten gods, of bold knights and swords; Vikings on a thrilling quest for gold; soldiers and battles, queens and pirates. The children thoroughly enjoyed the theatre experience and were mesmerised by tales of old and new.
