On Monday 12th, the children of years 3 & 4 went on their trip to the Weald & Downland Living Museum. After a snowy day, everyone was wrapped up warm and we had a great day in spite of the cold.
We learned about how people throughout the centuries lived, how they cooked and how they kept warm!
The children also took part in an Anglo Saxon workshop, where they got to split some logs, weave some weft and try on some armour and Anglo Saxon helmets.
The children all took part readily, behaved beautifully and had a great day all round!
Year 2 had a fantastic school trip in November to the Sealife centre in Brighton! The trip was to support learning in their topic: Ocean Adventures. They were able to explore the Sealife centre and see some amazing creatures: sharks, turtles, octopus, stingrays, seahorses and jellyfish. They also saw the turtles being fed and learnt so much during their visit. Some of the facts they learnt were: male seahorses are the ones that have the babies, starfish have eyes on the end of each of their tentacles, octopuses have three hearts and there used to be a dolphin living in the Sealife centre! After lunch, they had a play on a very windy Brighton beach and found lots of beautiful shells!
Year 6 Bowles Residential Trip - November 2022
Year 6 children showed resilience and determination on their residential trip to Bowles. The children also further developed their cooperative skills and completed a number of team building exercises. Activities ran from 9am to 9pm so we had some very tired children when they returned home after 2 nights away. All of the children had lots of fun and really enjoyed themselves.
A huge thankyou to Ms Carter, Mrs Tully, Ms Bailey and Mr Bray who accompanied the children on their trip. The group had 2 days of torrential rain but the children remained positive and continued with the outdoor activities. They even had a camp fire in the rain. I visited the class on the Tuesday and I was incredibly impressed with their perseverance and positivity!
