Week Ending 30th June 2017

The very hot weather of last week turned a little cooler this week, which was probably something of a relief for Badgers Class, who enjoyed a day of rugby skills on Monday.

On Wednesday, thirty-nine children from Badgers and Rabbits Classes travelled to Aston Clinton, for an exciting overnight adventure at Green Park Activity Centre.

Over two days, the children took part in archery, mountain biking, zip wire, the giant swing, and lots of other fun outdoor pursuits.  They enjoyed a DVD evening on Wednesday night and dinner in an inflatable room!  The children were collected by parents on Thursday afternoon, exhausted but happy after a fun-filled couple of days.

Back in school, there was a lot of artwork being produced this week, for the carnival float.  Hot air balloons of all sorts of sizes and colours were created, as well as clouds, baskets and lettering for our "Up and Away" theme.  It's all now ready to be assembled on Saturday morning, when a team of volunteer parents will be at school bright and early to decorate the lorry ready for a great day of carnival celebration!

On Thursday, Squirrels and Otters Class spent a lovely day at the Grove Theatre in Dunstable.  They started out with a tour of the theatre, going backstage to explore the dressing rooms, and looking at the props and scenery for the theatre's current production of "The Wizard of Oz".

In the afternoon, the children took part in drama workshops, with a rainforest theme.  This involved becoming an animal, talking to one another in character, dancing, and singing songs from "The Lion King."  The children thoroughly enjoyed their day out, and found out a lot about performing, and what goes on behind the scenes in a theatre.


Year 6 Young Enterprise children have now almost completed their business projects, and next week, will be setting up shop to sell their wares on Friday afternoon.  There will be ice creams and home made lemonade for sale, scented candles, fidget spinners, model aeroplanes, a football game, lucky dip and much more, all devised, planned and created by the children.  Please come along and support their efforts!
