On 27th September, the children in class 4 went on a trip to Woburn Safari Park, in support of their current topic, Jungle.
The children were very excited as they boarded the coach, which then provided them with a great view of the animals as we drove through the park. A guide introduced the children to all the different animals around the park, and they were particularly excited to see the new one day old baby giraffe! After the tour of the park the children had a picnic lunch followed by visits to the penguins, sea lions, tropical birds, wallabies and the elephant show. All the children (and the staff) had a wonderful time.

The children had a busy first day, with back to back activities!
In the morning they climbed and built rafts…..some with more success on the water than others!
After a lunch of jacket potato and salad, the children were orienteering and on the trapeze (they climbed a pole and had to jump off the top towards a trapeze!).
They enjoyed an evening meal of lasagne or chicken nuggets after which, the evening activity of ‘Human Cluedo’ began – Who kidnapped the instructor? Was it the gorilla, the minion, the pirate, the crocodile, the chicken or the cowboy?

The children in class 11 visited the Houses of Parliament on Friday 12th October as part of their PSHEE work on democracy and government in the UK. During the trip, they took a tour of the House of Lords and the House of Commons, they were shown royal entrances and stood where aws are created and debated. The magnitude of the building and the grandeur of the benches and stain glassed windows was magnificent; it filled the children with awe and inspiration.
The children also engaged in an ‘election game’ and learned about politics, policies and campaigning. They were treated to a question and answer session with a life peer, Baroness Janet Fookes; the first member of the House of Lords to ever speak to a school group! We were very honoured to hear about her life in politics and to be able to ask questions of such a respected life peer.

On Monday 1st October, the children in class 7 visited Cadbury World. They had a great time learning about the origins of chocolate, the history behind the Cadbury company and how chocolate bars are made.
The children had a lot of fun writing their names in chocolate and then eating it, of course!
On Thursday 28th June, the children in classes 3D and 3M took their first school trip to Rookery Farm. The journey on the minibus was a highlight in itself and when they arrived at the farm the children enjoyed time with the animals, soft play, picnic lunch and fun in the sun.
On Thursday 28th June, our pupils in classes 10 and 11 (Years 5 & 6) were invited to Northampton High School to enjoy their performance of the Sound of Music.
On Thursday 21st June, the children in class 4 spent the day at Mead Open Farm. They spent a lot of time with the animals, which included bottle feeding the sheep. They enjoyed a tractor ride and a picnic lunch. The children ended the day with a run around the soft play area.
On Wednesday 13th June, class 6 spent the day at Woburn Safari Park. The children enjoyed the road safari, in particular when the monkeys wouldn’t get off the roof of the coach and the giraffes refused to move off the road! They had lunch surrounded by excited chickens and spent the afternoon exploring the different animal enclosures. The highlight of the trip was stroking an African elephant and watching the naughty monkeys being fed. The children all learnt a lot and that had a brilliant day. Read more »
On Tuesday 12th June, the pupils in classes 8 & 9 spent the day at Legoland in Windsor. The children had a fantastic day; they went on the rides which included gaining their LEGO driving licence, laser shooting in the Kingdom of the Pharaohs and the Scarab Bouncer. They watched the Pirate Stunt Show, which required a balance between eating lunch and cheering on the good pirates in order for them to defeat the bad pirates! This truly was a brilliant day, enjoyed by everyone without exception!
