16.01.20 Year 4 Outdoor Learning

Wow it’s a brand new year and we got off to a busy start. Pond dipping was brilliant we found lots of things that are starting to grow, some of us found phantom midge lava, pond snails, and many other things as well. As some of us were doing that others were making an assault […]


Year 4 History Walk Thursday

We walked into the city to look for clues that told us buildings were old. We went to Elm Hill, The Cathedral, St Peter Mancroft and St Andrews. The walk was very tiring, but it was actually very interesting as well (Isla). As you were walking through Elm Hill, if you looked at the roofs, […]

It was wet and muddy today, still that meant that we had lots or gooey mud to play with, so the mud kitchen was doing well. We learnt how to make a hammock and planted some more trees. Mrs May took some us over to see the animals and we got the chickens to eat […]


Science Festival day 2 – Wednesday 4th December

Following an amazing day yesterday which saw our young scientists presenting their investigations to each other, we opened our doors to inspirational scientists (educators, entertainers, experts) and families for day 2 of our festival of science.

They have worked so hard over the past few weeks and all that paid […]


Last minute preparations; one more sleep

Today was an amazing day. The atmosphere around school was extraordinary. Scripts were adjusted, polished, edited live. Rehearsals were underway around every corner. Final coats of paint were applied; display broads were tweaked; the printer ran hot! Kids and staff moved with real purpose, good humour and nervous excitement. One last walk around after school […]


Final preparations underway for science festival

Children and staff have been busy this week getting experiments recorded, investigations completed, scripts tweaked and presentations rehearsed. The atmosphere has been purposeful with children working away in classrooms, the library, art room, and even corridors.

The weather was lovely we had the clay out and enjoyed making our own creations. We had a mud kitchen and enjoyed climbing and building.


Homesteading – Outdoor Art 21/11/2019
