A Very Special Visitor

The children waited with excited expectancy at the arrival of our special guest. No…not Prince Harry-although it may well have been, given the wonder on their faces- but our local MP, Mr Peter Heaton Jones. The children sat in rapture as he greeted them and began introducing himself. Then, they all put Peter through his paces, individuals asking the most thought provoking and excellent questions from ‘who is your favourite prime minister from the past?’…to ‘why does the queen sit on a big golden chair?’

It was a truly amazing experience and one of many that we hope to offer our children and community in making learning come to life this year.

Thank you so much, Peter.

 

 

Climate Control

The children in Cl2 have been thinking a lot about climate and how it affects the way we live and the problems that we need to solve. The children learnt this morning that the conditions at the time of The Great Fire of London were perfect for setting the city alight. This afternoon, they were finding out about Scott of the Antarctic and the conditions he and the team had to face, during their polar expedition. Check out their conscience corridor. I wonder if the children would make the decision to go on the same perilous journey???!!!

London’s Burning…London’s Burning…Fetch the Engine!!!!

What an amazing re-enactment, today. I have to confess to being a bit nervous at the start, but is was excellent and all was well. The morning began with a visit from Teresa, a fire fighter, where the children’s understanding of the Great Fire was put to the test. The big burn followed- and what a spectacular inferno we were treated to. Many thanks to all of the parents, who worked as hard as their children to build the houses in the first place; and for coming along today to join in with the fun. It was wonderful to see so many of you. To finish the event, we were all treated to a delicious school lunch. Thanks to the kitchen staff for making this possible.

Dinosaur Day

What a lovely day today, visiting Bristol museum. The children were in awe of the building, let alone the exhibits. The workshop was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the children learnt a lot. A long day and a long journey,  but they were all amazing. Thank you Class 2. Mrs F

 

 

Science Fair 1819

Wow! Wow! Wow! Oh my goodness. What an amazing afternoon. The staff and I were astounded by the vast array of scientific concepts explored by the children, matched also by the fantastically high standards set. We have an incredibly hard task ahead, selecting the winners. Thank you very much to all of our families for your support. I am one very proud and happy Mrs Forder.
