Outdoor Learning (posted on 23.05.2017)

Alongside 9,726 schools in the world we took part in an Outdoor Classroom Day that aimed to take learning outside for the whole day. Unfortunately, we did experience the Great British Weather (rain) on both planned days but the children (and staff) persevered and had a brilliant time.

KS1 took part in orienteering, mini beast hunts and took their learning outside.

KS2 took part in orienteering, pavement art, decimal hunts, maths trails and Year 4 constructed mini-rivers.

Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity, but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. It is something we are continuing to support and develop within school and as you can see from the pictures the benefit to children’s learning is undeniable.

Pizza Party (posted on 23.05.2017)

Our Year 6 pupils were treated to a pizza party on Friday 12th May 2017 to celebrate the end of their KS2 SATs tests.  The children have worked really hard and we thought that they deserved a treat!  All of the children were given the opportunity to create their own pizza using a range of ingredients including tomato sauce, cheese, ham, mushrooms and peppers with Mrs Ferguson and Miss Hodgson in the Year 6 Hub before they were cooked in the oven. We are really proud of all the hard work and effort that the children have put in during the weeks leading up to the SATs, and we hope that they enjoyed their treat!
