Year 2 Edgmond Residential Trip

Last week we recommenced our programme of residential trips and the Year 2 children all went to Edgmond Hall, staying over for two nights.

The adventure started with the children walking from school , along the High Street then along the canal to Edgmond – they were very excited to be walking so far but they all made it!

Once at Edgmond the children did lots of activites during the day, and looked after the animals as well as exploring the grounds of Edgmond Hall and learning all about it.

In the evenings , the children did a night walk on the first night, using torches and also making wishes on the wishing tree.

On the second night, they took part in a campfire , singing songs and toasting marshmallows.

We were very proud of the children and how independent they were. They all carried their own luggage upstairs, arranged their own clothes in their cupboard and made their own beds. At the end of their stay they also stripped off their bedding and packed all their clothes for the return journey. Well done Year 2!

Stone Age Day

Year 3 and 4 topic this term is The Stone Age.

On Monday we had a Stone Age Day and children had a visit from a caveman, a cavewoman and some of their wares!

It was a great way to bring the topic alive.

Year 5 Orienteering at Longford Hall

On 20th October, the year 5 children walked to Longford Hall to take part in an orienteering competition organised by Haberdasher Adams.

As you can see from the photographs, they had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Roman Guthrie and Adam Powell Laybourn were the winners – completing both courses in the fastest time.

Well done everyone!
