National Space Centre 

Tuesday 29th January 2019

The children in year 1 had a fantastic day at the Space Centre. They had lots of fun exploring the space centre and looking at all the different exhibitions. They thoroughly enjoyed making and launching their own rockets and loved the show in the planetarium. They also loved going up in the lift and looking at the huge rocket. It was all very exciting!

Muddy Puddle Day

The children had lots of fun and thoroughly enjoyed getting very muddy and dirty on Muddy Puddle day! They had a great time jumping and squelching in the muddy bucket! They loved making mud pies and cakes in the mud kitchen. They also enjoyed cleaning up all of the muddy toys. A great time had by all!!


Commando Joe

September 2018

The children have had lots of fun completing two Commando Joe missions. Their missions were to help Little Red Riding Hood collect apples for grandma by crossing a bridge and then carry the apples they had collected through the forest and without disturbing the wolf! They all worked extremely well in their teams, facing various obstacles and discussing ways of overcoming difficulties! We were very impressed with the ideas they came up with and their teamwork skills.  

Roald Dahl Day

September 2018

The children all looked absolutely fabulous in their costumes for Roald Dahl day today! In the morning, the children were split into groups with a mixture of Year 1 and Year 5 children and then completed activities based on different Roald Dahl books in the 2 classrooms. The afternoon was spent doing more fun Roald Dahl themed activities in our own classroom.
