Election Day 03

Primary pupils cast their votes - posted 9th Jun

We have been really interested in the general election at our school this week and we decided that we would like to hold our own election. We decided that we would like to hold a vote to decide what our end of year trip will be. We had two options to choose from; a teddy bear’s picnic or visiting the park and having ice lollies.

A fun trip to the supermarket - posted 25th May

We had such a fantastic trip to Sainsbury’s today. We absolutely loved it! We started our trip by finding the customer service desk and meeting our guides for the day. They showed us the fruit and vegetable aisle and we talked about all the exotic places they might come from. Then we went in to the warehouse and looked at what happens when the fruit and vegetables are sent to the store. We found out that bananas are bought the most out of all the fruits they have! Next, we went in to the big walk in fridge and some of us were even brave enough to try the walk in freezer. It was a freezing -25 degrees!

Staying safe on the road - posted 16th May

In Year One, we had a very special visit from Teddy! We listened to a very special story about when teddy took a tumble in his mummy and daddy's car! We talked about how important it is to stay safe when we are in the car; that means ALWAYS wearing a seatbelt! We also found out that we have to have a special booster seat until we are 12 years old or at least 1.35 metres tall. We all had great fun practising putting our seatbelt on and taking it off properly. Finally, we were shown an example of what could happen if we didn't wear our seatbelts - it looked very unsafe!

Farm to Fork - posted 14th Apr

Reception children have visited Tesco supermarket over the past two weeks. The children had the opportunity to look at the different food sections in the supermarket which included the cheese, fish and bakery counters. They saw how fish fingers are made, tasted some cheese and went to the warehouse where all the food is stored before it goes out into the store for customers to buy. The children's favourite part was when they went into the bakery. They could not believe how much flour and water went into the huge mixing bowl to make the bread. A big thank you to Tracy at Tesco for showing us around.

Despite the wet weather our Reception classes had a great time on their visit to St Leonard’s Farm. They were very excited at the opportunity to hold Jodie the kid goat, Minty the lamb and Nugget the chick! The children also had time to explore the play barn. At the end of the day there were a lot of tired children and staff sleeping on the bus home. A special thank you to our parent volunteers for their help on the day.
