As part of our topic on India, the Year 2 children enjoyed a visit from Miss Vet last week. Miss Vet had spent some time in India she was was able to give the children a first-hand account of what it is like there. She talked to the children about a range of topics, from the temperature, to the clothes worn, the street children she met and she talked about visiting the Taj Mahal, which has been of particular interest to the children.
The children also enjoyed tasting Mango. They learnt that in India the mango fruit is known as ‘the king of fruits’ and that it is used to make Indian ice cream.
 
Well done Year 2, it has been great to see you so enthusiastic during your topic this term.

Junior School Waste Week

March 28th, 2019 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in News - (0 Comments)

This week the Junior School have been focusing on waste and the impact it has on our environment. To support this and promote the use of reusing what others may call rubbish we asked for the Junior School to bring in items such as plastic bottles, plastic bags and cds. This morning Years 4, 5 & 6 worked collaboratively to learn how to upcyle and reuse items we would have never thought of reusing in this way.

Here is a picture of the activity we did in the year 5 classroom; we turned plastic bottles into colourful planters and we got some great inspiration from the internet.
