3-Day Wellbeing Festival

Prep pupils spent the day learning how to manage their wellbeing by connecting with nature - by painting logs in our friendship circle and welly walking - and connecting with others by visiting Redcot Care Home and playing games with the residents and working in their houses to produce uplifting, motivational songs.

Pupils Enjoy 3-Day Natural Wellbeing Festival

Could there be anything better for your wellbeing than cuddling a donkey or playing on the beach with your friends?  We doubt it!  The children are currently enjoying a 3-day Natural Wellbeing Festival where the children are mainly off-curriculum learning the extremely important lessons of how to manage their mental wellbeing through nature.  This is a shot of one of our Reception children enjoying a day at the Hayling Island Donkey Sanctuary where he was lucky enough to cuddle a donkey!

Years 3 & 4 Trip to Butser Ancient Farm

Years 3 & 4 had a fantastic trip on Monday when they 'travelled' back through 10,000 years of human history and discovered every day life in the ancient past.  The children made cordages, built walls using the clunching technique, carved with chalk and even acted as archaeologists by taking part in a dig!  A wonderful day of fascinating learning outside the classroom.

Cross-Country Competition at St Catherine's Bramley

A brilliant start to the cross-country season with 32 of our pupils heading to St Catherine's Bramley for their annual cross-country competition. Everyone represented St Ives so well, showing wonderful team spirit and determination (our cheering was definitely the loudest!) and we were thrilled to learn that 2 of our teams finished second overall! Great running U8 boys & U11 girls - we can't wait to see how you progress throughout the season! Thank you St Catherine's for a wonderful afternoon.

Greenpower 'Goblin' Cars

A huge thank you to FOSI (our parent body) who helped raise funds for our brand new Greenpower project. Year 6 pupils will be building 2 fully-functioning, electrically powered racing cars! Once completed, the children will be taking the cars to the Greenpower competition day at Goodwood, giving them the chance to test their mettle against children in other schools in the area in a series of different racing challenges.

Greenpower 'Goblin' cars arrive in kit form so the children will build the cars throughout the term, learning about mechanics, electrics, car control, design & livery. And, the best thing is that, at the end of the project, the cars can be taken apart for another set of pupils to learn the skills involved in building these cars. It's very exciting Year 6 and we can't wait to see your progress!

New Tree Carving

This morning we celebrated the start of the academic year with the 'official opening' of our newly-carved cedar tree which is so integral to our playground. Over the Summer, we had the very talented @simonorourke carve our logo & the animals & words within the Building Learning Power model which forms the framework of our everyday life. We all love it!
