Week Ending 17th April 2015

Summer term has started!  A new topic for EBA - "Walk on the Wild Side."  Our rooms and coridors will portray work linked to this theme, so hopefully it will be amazing just how "wild" things become!

The children have had lots of fun in the sun this week - swimming for Rabbits Class on Tuesday, cricket on Thursday, and Forest School for Key Stage Two children.

Hamsters children have enjoyed tending their vegetable garden, and have had a splashing time with water play!

Apart from all that, it has been quieter than usual in School this week, as most of our Year 5 and 6 children have been enjoying a fabulous break in Devon.  

Eighteen children, plus Miss Raymond, Miss Turner, Mr Wise and Mr Potton set off early on Monday morning, and arrived at their destination, Beam House PGL Centre, near Westward Ho! mid afternoon.  At this point Mr Wise and Mr Potton got back in the minibus and drove home again, leaving the rest of the party to enjoy a week of all sorts of exciting activities.  
The children have experienced surfing, rifle shooting, fencing, trapeze and zip wire, climbing, abseiling, and much more.  They have kept us up to date with their adventures through Twitter, and the photos and updates we've received have made us all feel quite envious of the fantastic time they have had.  Please enjoy a slideshow of some of the things they have been up to...

The group were so fortunate with the lovely weather we have had this week.  Mr Wise and Mr Potton returned on Friday to collect them and bring them home, and just as they were leaving... it began to rain!
