6.12.19 Year 6 Outdoor learning

We had a great time this week, some of us learnt how to use a flint and steel and how to make a fire that would actually stay lit. We found good sticks roasted marshmallows and then we made smores. We teamed up and made/played with the rope swings. Everyone joined in and it was […]


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. Over the course of the day, children: took part in one of four Q&As where they got to put […]


Science Festival day 1

What an amazing start to our two day festival of science. I think it is safe to say that the children were brave and articulate when they presented their investigations, and honest, kind and respectful when they were in the audience. 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 […]

We had a really busy day, we split into 3 groups and got to work. We cleaned out the guinea pigs, dug out the gardens (Which is a big job) and went to the garden to lay a new path, clean up, turn the compost and finish our seed catologue. A great time but tiring, […]


15.11.19 Year 6 Homesteading

We had a busy day, Lucas is still on holiday so along with the gardening we had to pick up the sweeping and bins. Still we managed to get lots done and make a path through the garden and clean the animal. Phew definitely a hectic morning.

It was cold and wet this afternoon. Still we made the most of it, we made bird feeders, played in the mud and rescued 2 collared doves from the chicken pen. It was lovely to see everyone busy and happy despite the weather.


11.10.19 Year 6 Outdoor learning

We had an interesting afternoon full of den building and experiments. Some of us teamed up together to try and make dens that would be waterproof, we found that it was much harder with the more people in a group, and using more didn’t always make it easier. In the pond area we found a […]
