  • Year 4 Zoo Lab

    Published 28/11/23

    The Year 4 pupils had an educational experience linked to Science.  They got to learn and discover all about Living Things and their Habitats.

    The children looked at Habitats from around the world: including tropical rainforests, deserts, polar regions and oceans. This hands-on workshop looks at three great survivors and considers how they survived.

    I think you will agree Year 4 were very brave to be hands on in their learning.

  • Remembrance In our Community

    Published 13/11/23

    Year 6 have been working alongside Local Veterans to immerse themselves in the understanding of what Remembrance is all about and why this is so important to our services.

    The children made some creative and inspired pieces from the stories heard from the veterans before attending a local service sharing their artwork and joining the veterans for lunch at Avondale house.

    The children have been respectful and reflective throughout this project and we are very proud of how they supported all those who have fallen for us and a better world.

    The mini-cadets joined the memorial Service on Sunday to support the local community and as a school we took a minutes silence and held an assembly on Remembrance and Peace.
