Trips and Visitors

Year 1 - Lancashire Fire Brigade Visit 

The children in Year 1 enjoyed a visit from the Lancashire fire department. We looked at how fire safety has changed since the Great Fire of London - our topic in History 🔥 

Author Visits to EYFS & KS1

We have been very lucky to book 2 author visits to share their inspirational stories with the children in EYFS and KS1. Fay Evans and Daisy Rumble visited St James’ and used props, puppets and child interaction to make their stories come alive. The children asked fantastic questions and were inspired to see how to become an author. 

Y6 Cookery day with Chef James - Spring 2022
The children in Y6 had a fantastic day with Chef James as they explored food and flavours. They worked together in teams to discover their tastebuds and design their dishes. The children made a Quella (Quorn Paella) and a pizza with a topping design of their choice. They all had a brilliant day and I’m sure we will see a couple of our children on MasterChef in the future!

Our Virtual Trip to the Amazon - Year 4 Autumn 2021

 

Mrs Bell arranged for Year 4 to zoom with a real life Amazonian! Ryan lives in the rainforest and works for 'Friends of Rio' a charity who are passionate about saving the rainforest. The children asked questions and gained an excellent understanding of his daily life. Something they will remember forever and which will inspire them to make a difference!

Year 4 - Trip to working farm with professional chef - Summer 2021

 

Year 4 went on an exciting, hands on trip to Cobble Hey working farm. They spent the day learning about life on a farm and  also had the opportunity to work with a professional chef who taught them all about where their food comes from and how it ends up in the supermarket. They used fresh ingredients to cook their own lunch and enjoyed eating it in stunning surroundings. We now have many budding farmers in the making.
