Broadening Our Horizons Through Lifelong Learning

Visitors enjoy tea and cake!

We had a wonderful time hosting our friends from the local care home – tea, coffee and cake whilst listening to our beautiful school choir. Children then shared their learning and our guests reminisced about their school days, sharing their memories of school life. We look forward to seeing them again soon when they will join us for a school lunch!

Did you know they had to walk 20 Roman miles in 5 hours with 7 bags on their backs?! They had so much learning to share and were very proud of their work. Keep your enthusiasm for your project going!

EYC – 50 things to do before we’re 11¾

Class 3 had a fantastic day out at Wroxeter Roman City.  We looked inside a replica town house and then learned more about the daily life of Romans from the 2000 year old ruins of the bath house.

Capital One help our Green Team!

Where has our allotment gone?! So many thanks to an amazing team from Capital One UK who enthusiastically razed our existing allotment with rotting beds, ready for our children to plan and help rebuild a new model.

EYC – ‘Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside’!

EYC children and staff had a fabulous time using their imagination to pretend to go to the seaside.

We went on a train, visited the aquarium, built sandcastles  on the beach, watched a puppet show and went on a round-a-bout. To finish our amazing trip we had an ice cream (even the teachers), yum, yum.

Always Award – skipping!

Today we held another amazing Always Award for the children who consistently behave well in school. This half-term the reward was a skipping workshop and it was incredible to see just how many skills the children could showcase at the end of the day!  Lots of ropes were purchased at the end of the day so the children can keep skipping!
