Grandparents' Afternoon

We welcomed Grandparents into Foundation Stage this afternoon for a stay and play session as well as enjoying a story and songs. The children enjoyed showing off a few of the things they have learnt over the year. Thank you for coming and joining in so well - even helping at tidy up time!

Staff v. Kids Netball!

Last night saw the return of the annual Staff v. Kids netball match and it was a close one! Every quarter ended neck-a-neck and the final score was an incredible 7-7. The children had really stepped up their game this year and it was clear that all their amazing coaching from Coach Wilder and Coach Fisher had really paid off.

Well done to everyone involved!

Year 5 St Birinus Experience Day

The boys have had a fantastic day visiting St Birinus for a taster day.  We started the day with a lesson in pop art where the children were able to print images using ink. This was followed by science which involved exploring reactions and using test tubes and a Bunson burner. Finally, we ended the day with a very active history lesson which saw the boys recreating life in the trenches. All the boys were very well-behaved and the teachers commented on their good manners and politeness.

Year 5 Visit to Sutton Courtney

On Wednesday, we spent the day visiting the Sutton Courtney nature reserve to learn about life cycles. In glorious sunshine, we got the chance to pond dip and identify the creatures we found; recreate the way bees pollinate plants and look at the different life  cycles of a variety of mini beasts. We also loved having the opportunity to explore and play in the trees too. A big thank you to the parents who helped on the trip.
