Musical Roots
On Tuesday, Ford Castle Class attended Musical Roots at the Alnwick Garden. Musical Roots is an annual celebration of music, in which all the schools who have received whole class music tuition perform to parents and other pupils. Our pupils performed on their violins brilliantly and played pieces such as 'The Hundred Pipers' and 'Open String Boogie'. Well done, Ford!
Year 5 visit DCHS
Year 5 really enjoyed their visit to the Duchess Community High School yesterday. They joined Year 5 pupils from eight other local primary schools to take part in a series of maths activities, such as code-breaking and times tables games. It was interesting to have a look around the Duchess and meet some of the secondary school teachers too!
Outdoor Learning
In this outdoor lesson, Ford Castle Class combined their maths, science and topic work by studying the trees in our school environment. We collected data by measuring the circumference of the trees and then presented our findings in a histogram.
