Events & Trips

Science Week - Year 4

Year 4 watched 2 workshops on Solids, Liquids and Gases before doing a number of experiments looking at how states of matter change. We observed how different oils separate when settled and how the colour in skittles does the same. We also shook double cream until it turned into a solid.

Tower Garden

Rethink Food have given us the opportunity to grow our own vegetables indoors. Using a NASA designed 'Tower Garden' we were able to grow lettuce, chard, basil, chamomile and rocket in a 60 day period. We harvested the vegetables and served it at dinnertime to the children.

Greek Day

We had a special visit from Robbie who did an Ancient Greek day with us. We watched and performed plays about myths and wrote our own myths. We also made plates in the style of ancient greek art.

6S trip to chester zoo

Nursery trip to the dinosaur exhibition at the Yorkshire museum in York

Mr Explorer

 When studying Kenya Mr Explorer came to visit our classes in Y1. He discussed his travels to Kenya and showed children photos of the animals seen. He also spoke about what he needed to take with him to travel around the world. 

1AJ Thornbury Library visit 

Children in 1AJ visited Thornbury library, they took part in a workshop which demonstrated how they could use the facilities there and then choose books to read for pleasure. One of the volunteers also shared a story and played games with the class too. They even gave us all some free books to take away

World Book Day

The children throughout school celebrated World book day, this year we all read the text The Red Prince and took part in many activities linked to this. First the day started as each person came to school dress as characters from the text, following this we had discussed our favourite books and dropped everything to read at 11 AM, this included all adults too. Each class also helped through creating artwork around the book, English and maths work to decorate their classroom door for a competition. The winning classes were awarded prizes in assembly.
