What a great day had by all. The children were exceptionally well behaved and a credit to out school. Activities included listening to 'Red Riding Hood,' making a clay wolfs' head, decorating a wolf using forest resources, listening to 'Jack and the beanstalk.' planting beans, looking for different plants and looking after Simons garden. We saw some cows and even saw a flurry of snow before we left.
A huge thank you to our helpers who helped make our fabulous day possible.

Everyone in school was invited to wear red and white to reflect the colours of the England flag. During assemblies throughout the week, the children lstened to the story of St George, Patron Saint of England, and sung happy birthday to the Queen at 90.
Congratulations to members of SHAKESPEARE house, who are this half-term's winners of the House Point Trophy. The results were very close in the end, with lesson than 100 points difference between the first and third places:
Well done to all the children who took part. We are truly privileged to teach such talented children. They sang and danced beautifully whilst telling a very important story, making us very proud. We would like to say a thank you to the members of staff and parents who supported us with costume changes and face painting.
Mrs Bradley, Mrs Cable, Mr Ward, Mrs Bellaby, Mrs Newton, Mrs Wyatt and all staff and parents who were able to support us.
Children in Red and Green class watched a video clip about London streets in 1903 to help them understand life 100 years ago. As a group they have looked at modern day photographs of soldiers, medals, poppies and Flanders Fields. To encourage their questioning and understanding everyone made two different pictures of Flanders Fields. The 1915 picture involved using different shades of charcoal, creating a dark and eerie picture. The 2015 picture represented a green field with an array of brighlty coloured poppies.
