Forest School

In Forest School, pupils are concentrating on birds at the moment, ahead of the RSPB's Big Schools Bird Watch 2024 later this month.  Pupils enjoyed lying down and watching the sky to see what birds we have in our grounds and were lucky enough to see a Kite circling overhead.  Reception class worked together to make bird feeders out of apples, sunflower seeds, sticks and string, which they then hung in the trees.  They were so excited to see them hanging there, waiting for the birds to enjoy!

A brilliant start to Hockey Club by Years 4 and 5 yesterday.  Pupils loved playing quick competitive games against each other to practise their skills and keep warm in the setting sun.

Tennis is Thriving at St Ives

Some regard tennis as a Summer sport.  Not us at St Ives!  We play all year round and love doing so.  In fact, tennis here is so popular that 85% of school pupils have weekly lessons, led by our wonderful resident coach, Julia Bowker.  Thank you Julia - your passion and talent for tennis is rubbing off on all of us!

Year 1 and 2 Science

The Pre-Prep department has got off to a cracking start this term - Year 1 had an 'eggcellent' Science lesson, looking at eggs for their new topic 'Out of Eggs'. The children studied the eggs appearance outside before cracking them and noticing how different they are inside. Year 2 also started a new Science topic, exploring plants. They set up an experiment to investigate what plants need in order to grow. They also planted their own seeds to kick off the '2024 Bean Growing Contest'!

Reindeer Run in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell

What a beautiful morning for our annual Reindeer Run in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell.  Donning our festive headgear, we braved our slippery slopes and muddy paths and loved our jaunt around the grounds in the rarely-seen-recently Winter sun.  A perfect way to finish off a busy term and to wish everyone in our community a very Happy Christmas!

Wellbeing Club Decorate Christmas Tree

There can't be many things better for your wellbeing than decorating a Christmas tree, as our Wellbeing Club found out this week.  It was lovely and relaxing, leaving us all feeling very Christmassy.  Once the tree was finished, we enjoyed a guided meditation about creating a tree house.  Whilst we listened to the meditation, we all drew our own dream tree house.  What a positive end to this wonderful After School Club.
