On Friday 22nd June, children from across the school joined together to share their learning and encourage each other to reflect on the value of co-operation. The children took part in a range of activities including building protection for a model, learning sign language, cooking, artwork inspired by British values and physical activities. All activities were designed to help children think about different aspects of working together and how we can achieve more together than we can individually. Mrs Steer and all the teachers worked really hard and we want to say thank you to everyone for their hard work.
On Friday 15th June, year one went on a trip to Wrest Park. The children walked down to the beautiful house and English Heritage were kind enough to allow us free entry. We were provided with an education room as a base which was really helpful! We then started to explore, we started by going to the orangery and discovering that they once kept orange trees in there. Then we saw how they were looking after Wrest Park when we saw the work that was being done on the Bowling Green building. We then ventured down to the pavilion and braved the very steep steps to see what was inside. After we wandered back to the education room it was time for lunch. The children loved the opportunity to play on the grass and have a picnic together. Then we went into the main house to find out how the house was used during the first world war and about the De Grey family. After a quick (but very appreciated) visit to the playground we went back into the gardens to sketch the flowers and statues. This trip would not have been possible without the support of the parents that accompanied us and the Wrest Park staff. The children had a fantastic day and you can see more pictures of our trip on the class pages.
The Eco Warriors have been working hard since April. Digging and planting up our vegetable patch, they planted carrots, radishes, rocket and spinach seeds as well as new potatoes in sacks. The P.T.A have kindly given us funds to buy some flowers, compost and small trees for our playground. The children have been busy at lunch time planting and caring for the plants. They really enjoy taking part and often ask Mrs Godin for outside jobs.
P.S STOP THE PRESS!!! We have had out first bee visitor!
