Cadbury World

Year 4 enjoyed an amazing day out at Cadbury World as part of their learning about Chocolate. It was an early start but all the children behaved well and came away having learnt lots of new facts about how chocolate is made and how the Cadbury brand became the success it is today.

Cross Country Competition

Key Stage Two marked the end of Term 1 with a cross country competition. It was really good to see all of the children taking part and trying their best. Pupils were awarded team points for their efforts and overall the winning house was Sycamore.

Roots to Food

On 11th October, Key Stage Two children took part in a fantastic workshop learning about the different food groups and making healthy eating options. Two teams also went head to head in a contest to make a tasty, healthy meal in just 15 minutes. Two members of each class made up the teams, one of which was lead by our very own Mr Norman. Other children were then given the task of tasters before an winner was chosen.

Roald Dahl Day 2018 13 September

We really enjoyed dressing up and taking part in themed learning activities to celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl’s 102nd birthday. Can you spot you favourite character?

Parachutes for Peaches 13 September

Could you design a parachute to help land James’ Giant Peach safely? Well, Year Four gave it their best shot as part of our Roald Dahl Day celebrations. They displayed good teamwork skills and some perseverance too!
