Year 5 Activity Day with Rooks Nest Academy, Outwood, Wakefield
The Year 5 Activity Day is run by members of our teaching staff and last year involved the participants making a parachute for an egg drop competition, making pancakes in Food Technology, making a key ring in Textiles and attending a music session.
This event is attended by both State Primary Schools and Independent Junior Schools, including QEGS and WGHS Junior Schools.
The other state schools involved are: Flanshaw Junior, Gawthorpe Primary, Jerry Clay Academy, Pinders Primary, The Vale Primary and West Brettion Junior. Independent Schools involved at Queenswood, WGHS Junior and QEGS Junior.
Only teaching staff are involved in running this activity day and it uses school facilities.
The pupils are all from Year 5 and 364 boys and girls are involved in the planned activity day for 2016.
This event has been run from 2012 to date and occurs once every academic year.
