Welcome to Athelstan Community Primary School

This year we launched our Transport topic with a trip that allowed the children in Year One and Two to experience travelling by coach and boat.  We headed out to the National Railway Museum in York where we discovered old locomotives, such as Stephenson’s Rocket, and also looked at the bullet train from China.

We then headed towards the River Ouse where the children boarded a boat and enjoyed an afternoon sailing upon the waters. 

The children enjoyed comparing trains, coaches and boats and were extremely excited about our transport topic.  The visit was able to launch our topic very successfully and certainly got our children excited by all the new learning they had to come.
