Virtual Trip to Euro Disney

I hope everyone enjoyed the Virtual trip to Euro Disney on Friday 5th March. There was alot of learning about landmarks that you would pass on the journey in the morning with everyone being able to access virtual tours of Euro Disney in the afternoon, explore their Disney boxes and enjoy an icecream for the parade/ show at the end. We had posters/banners and pictures of Disney characters around school which all of the children enjoyed when they returned on Monday 8th March.

Mrs Binns was on National BBC breakfast news channel on Sunday 7th March and they were astounded by the events that we had completed and we had managed to involve everyone at home too!! Ward Green has definitely been in the news headlines letting our country know what a fantastic school and community we have.

The children turned their landmark work into a window display so that children from the others could walk around outside and learn even more!
