Year 4 got fabulous weather this week for the annual residential activity holiday to Robinwood. Reports are shared on Facebook and I receive emails morning and evening to update me on the excellent resilience, team spirit and camaraderie that is seen. It’s also lovely to see that one of the Robinwood group leaders is the same as last year. Well done Robinwood you do a great job! And well done to Year 4 for relishing those amazing challenges! Very proud principal once again!
Year 1 visited the Hancock museum this week to learn all about dinosaurs and palaeontology. As always they behaved brilliantly and they were full of news about their learning that included: examining different fossils, trying out different dinosaur body parts, having triceratops horns or pteranodon wings, using special explorer bags to become palaeontologists, looking at different dinosaur habitats and learning that some dinosaurs had feathers. They even saw fossilised dinosaur poo! Yuk!
Our early years children have been captivated by the chicks, watching them carefully, showing care and consideration. Thanks to Katie for the webcams that helped us to see them morning, noon and night! We are looking forward to adding some of them to our chicken collection so that we can add to the animals we care for. If you are interested in being involved caring for the pigs and chickens, at weekends and in holidays, please let a member of staff know. On writing this we have 9 chicks that have hatched out of their eggs – we can’t wait to choose names for them all. (more…)
