Co-curricular experiences are a brilliant source of learning for Tranby pupils. There's so much value in physically seeing and feeling the things you've been learning about in the classroom. πŸ“šβœ¨ A particular favourite for our Y7 Latin pupils in the last academic year was an enrichment visit to York. πŸŽ‰ The pupils visited the Yorkshire Museum where they viewed the People of the Empire exhibition and stood on a genuine Roman mosaic floor. πŸ›οΈ Next, they visited the bath complex that served the Roman legions stationed in Eboracum. They dressed up in helmets and armour, giving them a feel of the very heavy load the soldiers had to bear. πŸ›‘οΈβš”οΈ A walk along the city walls gave them a bird's eye view of the defences built by the Romans that have lasted to this day and even been instrumental in our recent history. 🏰 DIG Archaeology was an incredible experience where the pupils handled artefacts such as bones, utensils and even a fossilised, ahem...πŸ’©! They practised their excavation skills and discovered skeletons and treasures, then conducted experiments in dendrochronology, utilising pigment samples and sorting small finds into different categories. πŸ”πŸ¦΄ Finally, the pupils used their knowledge of the geographical requirements for building a town and chose the best spot to build a town from a 3D map. πŸ—ΊοΈπŸ™οΈ It was an action-packed and exciting day for all! Many thanks to Mrs Carrizales and Mrs Asbury for making the trip possible and to our students who exemplified excellent behaviour, manners and enthusiasm. 🌟 Kesia at DIG Archaeology even remarked on your engagement and enthusiasm, you make us very proud to have you in the Tranby family! πŸ‘β€οΈ
Whilst the England squad didn't quite get it over the line last night, we want to congratulate Y6 pupils Harry and Lincoln πŸ‘ who showcased their remarkable talents at the recent East Riding trials, overcoming formidable competition to earn coveted spots on the East Riding Under-12s team. πŸ†βš½οΈ Their exceptional performance has secured them the honour of representing their region, a testament to their dedication and skill. 🌟 Lincoln and Harry join a long list of pupils who have achieved excellent sporting feats this year. πŸŽ–οΈ We're thrilled to be part of that growth; supporting these passions and helping students to develop their skills and love for sport. ❀️ Very well done boys, we're so proud of you! πŸŽ‰πŸ₯³
πŸ†βš½οΈ Tranby families, are we excited? Nervous? Watching from behind a pillow? Maybe it's all of the above! Send us your pictures and videos before during or after the big match, we'd love to see them! In school as in sport, every victory and setback teaches us resilience. This squad have shown remarkable resilience during the tournament and as a nation, we should be very proud, whatever the final result. But also, PLEASE WIN, ENGLAND πŸ˜… Come on lads, we are rooting for you! πŸ† #EnglandMatch #Teamwork #Resilience #LearningThroughSport #EnglandVSpain
πŸŒπŸŽ’ Over the past week, we've had the pleasure of hosting international students from China here at Tranby! This wonderful trip, arranged by Mrs. Douglas - a parent at the school and our Head of Prep Mrs Sweeting, has allowed these students to participate in our lessons and explore many beautiful tourist spots across Yorkshire. It's been an enriching cultural experience for our pupils and our visitors, and truly heartwarming to watch them create unforgettable memories and build strong bonds with their new friends from across the globe. πŸ‘«πŸ’› πŸ™ A big thank you to Mrs Douglas for her meticulous planning, and to our amazing staff for organising and attending the trips (especially those who battled the rain in York on Tuesday, still with smiles on your faces!) Your efforts have made this experience truly special for everyone involved! 🀩 For the full story and all the lovely pictures of the visit, take a screen grab of the link below and either click to follow from your screen grab or copy and paste the URL into your browser! https://www.tranby.org.uk/news-events/news/artmid/651/articleid/326/preview/true/visiting-students-from-china #CulturalExchange #YorkshireAdventures #CommunitySpirit#thetranbyway
