School Trips 2019/2020
Derby Faith Trail
In September, we went on the Derby Faith Trail. During the day, we visited the places of worship of people from different religions and learnt about their different faiths (Sikh, Hindu and Muslim).
After learning all about farming in our whole school topic in the Autumn term, we visited a local farm to see how a farm was run. At Crabtree farm, they are one of the only farms in the area to have a robot which assists with the milking of the cows. On our visit, we watched how this worked and talked to the farmer about their daily jobs on the farm.
Christmas came early at St Leonard's when we visited the adventure farm for the North Pole experience. During the day, we saw different farm animals before being transported to the North Pole via a secret portal to see Santa and his elves (It was magical to say the least!).
Macclesfield Silk Mill - Egyptians
On Thursday 13th February, Flames class visited the Silk Museum in Macclesfield for an Egyptian experience. In the Spring term, we learnt about the Egyptians so here, we were very lucky to see real life artifacts collected by Marrianne Brocklehurst, who was a local historian fro Macclesfield who lived during the Victorian times. During our visit, we were guided though the artifacts by Marrianne herself, we decorated symmetrical Anubis head masks and we organised an Egyptian artifacts display. Our favourite part was seeing a real life Mummy case and mummified objects.
