Year 2 Science

In Science Year 2 investigated the effect of blubber insulation while learning how Arctic animals are adapted to live in extremely cold & icy environments. They investigated how long they could keep their hands plunged into iced water with & without wearing a blubber glove. The uncovered hand felt so cold, & they could not keep it in the water long! Brrrggghhhh!

Surrey Fire & Rescue Service Visit Reception Class

What an exciting morning for our Reception children with a visit from the Surrey Fire & Rescue Service as part of their topic ‘People Who Help Us’. The children learnt about the different roles firefighters play within our community & then were lucky enough to explore the fire engine, see the blue flashing lights & hear the siren, but the biggest excitement was when they were allowed to use the huge fire hose! They all delighted in squirting traffic cones down the St Ives driveway & soaking everything in its path! Thank you so much @surreyfrs for bringing the children’s learning to life!

Inter-house Cross Country Competition

Clearly inspired by this year’s London Marathon, pupils ran so hard to battle it out in the Inter-House Cross Country this afternoon. Our cross country course is renowned locally for its killer hill, but even the hill didn’t stop pupils from giving it their all in the fight for the coveted trophy. Well done Blue House for being triumphant! Bronze, silver & gold medals were awarded to children in each year group, as well as a certificate for effort. Wonderful camaraderie & team spirit throughout!

Nursery Children

Last week Nursery children worked on self-portraits & created some wonderful paintings. They also learnt about the different parts of their bodies through songs & games such as ‘I’ve got a body’ & ‘Head, shoulders knees & toes’. In the garden, they have been finding out what their bodies can do through challenges such as 'How far can you throw? How high can you jump? & ‘How fast can you run?’ In Forest School the children used hoops to explore the forest floor. They looked very closely at the different natural items inside the hoops, sorted them into groups & counted them.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Macmillan Coffee Morning yesterday. It was lovely to see so many of you. A very big thank you to Mrs Parker & our wonderful Year 6 children for decorating the hall, welcoming & serving our visitors & for being the perfect hosts! We look forward to sharing how much money was raised for this incredibly worthwhile cause.

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!
