This half term, the children in class 5 (Reception) have been learning about Weather and Seasons. On Tuesday 24th January, the children visited Howe Park Woods; where they were able to explore the natural woodland (and play in the play area!). They ran through the woods and thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of the ‘great outdoors’. We went in search of evidence of woodland animals and their habitats; and were lucky enough to find mole holes, minibeasts and even a bear cave!!! Sadly we did not see a bear, however if you go down to the woods and you do spot that bear, please do let us know!

On Friday 18th November, the pupils in class 10 spent the day at Hampton Court Palace. They were transported back to a time when Henry VIII ruled the land and through an interactive workshop, were given the opportunity to assess whether he was as terrible as the history books say. Through drama and storytelling, the children immersed themselves in Tudor life and explored what it was like to have been alive during the reign of arguably the most fascinating monarch of the Tudor age. The children rounded off the day with a tour of the kitchens, apartments, chapel and gardens to ensure an unforgettable learning experience.

Class 5 trip to Woodside Farm

The children in class 5 had a fun filled day Woodside Farm on Tuesday 27th September, in support of their current topic, Food.
On arrival, the children headed straight for the hen house to collect freshly laid eggs from the coup. They collected 27 eggs … and not one breakage!

They then moved onto the petting shed where every child had the opportunity to hold or stroke a dragon lizard, a rat or a chinchilla. They learnt a lot of new facts.

The children went to see all the other animals and birds on the farm and had a ride on the tractor trailer.

We had the farm to ourselves so we took time to enjoy the other activities on offer including crazy golf, trampoline park and the indoor play area.
