Science Club

Base 2 enjoyed their last Science Club for this term.  They investigated how craters are formed on planets and made their own Martian surface with clay.  It was great fun making craters with pebbles, although it proved to be very messy!

Bradford Multicultural Visit 

Base 2 visited a Mosque and a Gurdwara in the city of Bradford.  They were also able to compare a city environment with that of a rural village.  The visit ended with shopping in the Bombay Stores.

Writing Workshop

The children of Base 2 rode on the steam train from Goathland to Pickering to participate in a persuasive writing workshop run by the NYMR education officer.

Their brief was to persuade Dr Beeching not to close the railway. They made a very good case and had the opportunity to read their letters to Dr Beeching himself before returning by train to Goathland.

Base 2 Go Fossiling!


Base 2 travelled to Boggle Hole and Stoupe Beck to study rocks and fossils.  We discovered how erosion has changed the coastline and tried to work out where the cliff might have been thousands of years ago. 
On our walk along the beach we collected many fossils including a lovely ammonite and everyone managed to find something special to take home!  On our walk back some of us discovered just how heavy a bag of rocks can be!!  This resulted in some difficult decisions being made in order to lighten the load!  Our day ended with dam building before returning to school.
