After an exciting trip to the dell this morning, Year 6 returned to the nursery class to read their stories to the children.
It was a pleasure to watch them share their own work and the story books with the younger children.
Well done to you all.
We’re going on a Bear hunt!
This morning Ruby class went to the dell to experience retelling the story with a twist.
Mrs Lawes had prepared some tyres filled with grass, water, mud, cottonwool and sticks to represent the actions in the book.
As you can see they walked through the tyres bare footed with help from Amethyst class, who encouraged Ruby class to carry on.
Then came the alternative Bear Hunt. Miss Smith was the first to try! We had baked beans, shaving foam, porridge mixed with water, hay and finished with cold cooked spaghetti.
Some of Ruby class were keen, some had a go with help from Year 6.
Then we let the Year 6 try it for themselves.
Many thanks to Amethyst class for their encouragement and help with the younger children.
In the autumn we looked at the Spiderwick’s Chronicles and produced our own book. The class produced some wonderful writing backed up with some beautiful watercolour illustrations.
This term the children have been looking at e-safety and added to our
Well being wall display.
This half term we have been reading The Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Our end piece of work has been based around “What if..Voldermort was good, Harry was a girl etc. ”
The children have produced some very imaginative writing.
I’m pleased to announce that as a school we now have access to a wonderful language resource called Linguascope which I’m beginning to use in school.
If you would like your child to access this resource at home to consolidate their language learning please contact me for website and login details for the Linguascope website.

Y6’s school trip to Aylmerton Field Studies Centre
Y6 had an amazing week away enjoying lots of different activities covering geography field studies, team building, OAA as part of the PE curriculum, science field studies and some just for fun!
It is always a really fun week away and the children all grow in confidence and independence. This year the children were particularly outstanding ambassadors for the school and were frequently praised for their manners, conduct and knowledge.
What did they have to say about the week? See some extracts from their thank you letters below…
‘I had an amazing time particularly when we went on the mud walk because we collected loads of semi-precious stones and it was an amazing experience walking through mud, lakes and collecting cockles.’
‘I had a phenomenal time at Aylmerton.’
‘My favourite part was when people kept falling over in Blakeney on the mud flats.’
‘To be honest I enjoyed every single moment and every single laugh we shared.’
What a wonderful week we had at Aylmerton Field Study Centre in Norfolk!
Everyone enjoyed their stay and really participated throughout the week. We have a very full itinerary from beach walking on the Norfolk coast observing the erosion and sea defences to rock pooling ,boating on the Norfolk Broads and being pirates for the day.
The children learn to work as a team by improving their communication skills ,encouragement and determination to complete all of their tasks to their best ability. This years class really excelled in their participation in all of the activities.
They made scary and convincing pirates while they managed the low ropes and the bosuns chair. They also enjoyed their late night walk in the forest discovering the activities of the local bats using sonar and all of their map reading activities.
The children were busy from dawn to beyond dusk including swimming at the local pool with the wave machine and flume. Needless to say they were keen for their breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Aylmerton kitchen certainly doesn’t disappoint us as the food is plentiful and delicious.
They have come back to school raring to go and quite grown up . Well done Year 6
