This week we have had a fantastic opportunity to work with Lavington school along with 5 other primary schools in our area. We have been researching the life of Pocahontas as it is the anniversary of her death which was 400 years ago. During this week, we have made native american pots, tried different edible plants and we attended a modern pentathlon at Lavington school. The children have thoroughly enjoyed this week and we would like to say a huge thank you to Lavington school. 29/06/17
On Tuesday 4th we went to the living rain forest! We split into two groups - some of us learnt about sustainability and the other half learnt about adaptations. The children were able to see the different layers of the rain forest, invertebrate and vertebrate animals and many different plants. All of this tied in extremely well with our current topic and science learning, which made a fun day out for all!
29/09/2016 - After Eleanor wrote a letter to the chief constable, he decided to come into our school with his team to talk to the children about how they can make a difference within their community. We had a fantastic afternoon, learning new things about the police force, what to do in an emergency and how to keep ourselves safe. We were also able to go in their police vehicles and we took turns trying on their police coats and helmets. We would like to say a big thank you to the chief constable and his team for providing us with an enjoyable afternoon and also to Eleanor who did a fantastic job of arranging it!
