What’s in the bag?

Posted on September 11th, 2017 in General News by Mr Dingley

In Science we have been learning that we need light in order to see things.

The children had to describe the contents of the bag without being able to see inside.

This caused a great deal of frustration as they tried to work it out.

Here there is a lot of concentration going on!

Some of them tried to cheat! They were making holes in the paper bag in order to let the light in and reveal the object.

All the children moved round the room to try the different objects.  They all had fun.

Time Tables Heroes!

In Hazel class the children have sat their first times tables test of the year.

They have all spent time learning their tables and many of them were very successful.

Just look at how pleased they are!

We are really looking forward to seeing many others also in the weeks to come.


School Eucharist

Posted on September 11th, 2017 in General News by Mr Dingley  Tagged

We held a school Eucharist service in the hall on Friday afternoon.

Craig Abbot and Peter Ballard led the service of communion. All the classes contributed to the service.


Hazel class wrote some prayers of thanks for the food and drink that we receive.

We looked at what communion was in class which led to lots of discussion.  The children

learnt why it happens, what it represents and now understand what it looks like too.

They all enjoyed the service, especially the bread!


Tomb Raiders

Posted on September 5th, 2017 in General News by Mr Dingley

Today the children entered the tomb of a Pharaoh that had been sealed for 5000 years (Well since lunch time).

They had to crawl through the narrow entrance armed with just torches.

Their mission, to find and record all of the Pharaoh’s funeral possessions.

They also had to make replicas of the Pharaoh’s death mask.

This was to be a really “WOW” start to our Ancient Egypt topic. Both adults and children enjoyed the excavation.

Hello world!
