Class 6 Trip to Milton Keynes Museum

Victorian Musical Instruments

On Thursday 15th March, the children in class 6 (Year 1) visited Milton Keynes Museum yesterday, in support of their current class topic, Sound and Communication..

The children spent the morning calling each other on old fashioned telephones, pretending to be Victorian school children, listening to old fashioned musical instruments and learning

about the history of communication.

They had many interesting questions to ask the volunteer staff at the museum and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the hands on activities.

After a picnic lunch, the children looked around the old shops and discovered how people got around before the car was invented.

House Poetry Competition 2018

HOuse Poetry

On Wednesday 7th March 2018, we held the final of our annual House Poetry Competition. As always, we were pleased to welcome our Chairman of Governors, Mr Pye, as Head Judge! The children performed their poems in front of the judging panel and the children in classes 6 to 11. All of the poems, without exception, were brilliant and therefore the judges had the difficult job of choosing winners for the Pre-Prep Department, Junior Prep, Senior Prep and the Wild Card round! Congratulations to everyone who took part!
