Reception Trip to Marwell Zoo

Reception had a wonderful time at Marwell Zoo on Monday. The children loved learning about the different types of zebras, why giraffes are so tall & meeting the lemurs & white rhinos. They also loved the rainforest workshop. It was a wonderful way to finish off our topic, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ & we were very proud at how beautifully the children behaved all day!

Nursery Sports Day

Today our Ducks in Nursery had their Sports Day! After weeks of practice, they were raring to go and couldn't wait to show their Mummies and Daddies all their newly acquired skills. Not so long ago, these children were learning to walk and now they are running, hurdling and relay racing. With a few fun events thrown into the mix, such as the bean bag race, wheel-barrow race and bucket and spade race, it proved to be a glorious morning of athletics. Thank you to all of the families who supported on the sidelines and to those who of you brave enough to run in the parents' race!

years 5 and 6 Trip to London

A few photos from the trip to London for Years 5 and 6. Pupils spent the day visiting Shakespeare’s Globe and the Tate Modern. They enjoyed a tour around the Globe and loved watching the finishing touches being made to the set and watching the actors warm up. They enjoyed lunch in the sunshine and spent the afternoon in the Tate Modern being inspired by all the exhibits.

Forest School

In Forest School, Years 1 and 2 found out about the elves, pixies and fairies who visit the St Ives forest in the summer months to enjoy the flowers and the sunshine and need somewhere to stay whilst they are here. The children decided to create wonderful houses and gardens for them. They even made a security system to keep them safe from foxes! Wonderful examples of teamwork and cooperation and the children are eager to add to their enchanted village in the next few weeks!

STEAM Festival

What an inspiring start to our 3-day STEAM festival! The dressing up brief was to come as a Scientist or Inventor and we’ve had a huge range of costumes - from Sir Isaac Newton to Brian Cox, to Thomas Edison to Mary Anning. The children look fabulous and are very excited about the next few days.

IAPS National Finals

We are busting with pride at this talented bunch of swimmers who have just come 4th in the U11s 8 x 25m relay at the IAPs National Finals held at the London Aquatic Centre. These gutsy girls were only 1.5 seconds off getting the Bronze and, even better than that, they took 16 seconds off their Regional time! As one of our Year 5 swimmers said, “Next year, we’re coming for a medal!”. We bet you will, girls!

The Start of Reception Readiness Sessions

This morning we had our first Reception Readiness session for our Ducks in Nursery and the new children who’ll be joining us in Reception in September. Everyone loved being with Miss Tapp & finding out what life will be like in Reception. They loved exploring the classroom, both inside and out! These sessions will be taking place every Thursday until the end of term to ensure the transition from Nursery to ‘big school’  for all new children goes as smoothly as possible.

World Environment Day

Well done to Blue House for organising an environmental morning today for World Environment Day. The whole school, from Nursery to Year 6 took part in a litter pick around the school grounds, they then made planters using recycled pots, compost and seeds and finished the morning appreciating nature through Art. Teaching our children about the environment and how to play your part in protecting it is part of our role as a Green Flag School.
