Year 5 have had a fantastic half term, designing, marketing and making their chocolate products. The day has finally come and the children have been able to put all of their hard work to the test. The children sold their chocolates to the whole school as well as their parents in order to make a profit.
What a fantastic day we have had, lots of fun in the beautiful sunshine! We investigated what plants need to grow and survive and then had to use our knowledge as we planted our own herbs. It was fun using our sense of smell to identify different herbs! We have never looked at poo so closely either and know we love worms because they do such an important job!
In the afternoon we got to show Nigel and Melissa how great we are at working as a team and cooperating. We built dens, raced boats down the brook and led our teams through an obstacle course. They said we were the best class they had ever had – Mrs Baird and Miss Curwen were super proud of us too! Have a look at our photos…..
What an absolutely wonderful day at Damhouse on our forest schools trip! 🙂
We had so much fun taking part in lots of activities down in the woods…
– Chopping kindling for the fire
– Drilling wooden pendants to make necklaces
– Making Nature Ninja bandanas
– Baking and eating bread
– Building dens
…and the one they waited for all day – toasting marshmallows around the campfire!
The children were excited all day long and loved every moment. Thank you to all the parents who helped today and to those who volunteered. We really appreciate your support.
WOW!! What an AMAZING day!! We had so much fun cutting wood and building our own fires, hunting for minibeasts and playing on the rope swings! We also used lots of petals and leaves to print our own ‘Nature Ninja’ bandana! In the afternoon we built our fire and cooked our bread. We also cut our own willow branches and drilled a hole to make a wooden medallion! To finish the day we toasted marshmallows and sang songs around the fire. Thank you so much to our brilliant parent helpers – Anna’s daddy, Sophie’s daddy and Esme’s mummy. Click here for the photos of our fantastic day!
Here are just a few photos of KS2 School Games Day 2017. The children had a fabulous afternoon and we were very lucky with the weather! The overall winners were Peel, all the other houses did very well – it was very close.
What a wonderful afternoon! The children had a fantastic time in the sunshine taking part in our annual EYFS games day.

We were very proud of the children who put in 100% and showed super sportsmanship!
Thank you to all the adults who came to cheer us on, especially those who took part themselves 🙂
