Dad's Breakfast

Thanks so much to all the Dads who joined us for breakfast this morning. The children loved sitting down in the dining room and eating croissants and bacon rolls with you and then showing you around their classrooms and introducing you to all their teachers. We’ve already had several requests to make it a weekly thing…… and that’s just from the Dads!

Year 5 Investigate the Absorbency of Materials

In Science, Year 5 were tasked with designing a fair test to investigate which material was the most absorbent. The children had to select their own equipment & identify their control variables. We had a variety of different test designs & they had great fun working together & collecting data. We then compared our results & found felt to be most absorbent!

Archery Club

Last week also marked the start of Archery Club for our prep school children, which was really popular. It was harder than it looked, so the children had to concentrate & persevere to hit the targets! We’ll love watching them improve as the term goes on.

Year 4 Trip to Chichester

Year 4 enjoyed their first school trip of the academic year last week in Chichester. The children started the day by the coast, looking for evidence of a Roman tile making site which once provided tiles to Fishbourne Roman Palace. They found many real Roman tile treasures. After enjoying lunch in the beautiful Bishop's Palace Gardens, they discovered the remains of Roman Chichester, such as its gates & walls. The class then went to the Novium Museum for a hands-on Roman workshop. Here, they were shown the excavations of Chichester's Roman Baths, learnt about what a visit to them in Roman times would have been like, & were able to see & handle many Roman artefacts. They enjoyed dressing as Roman warriors. Their eyes were opened as to just how heavy and bulky the armour would have been to wear whilst fighting!
