Toad - Guilty or Innocent?

January 16, 2020

As part of our English unit Wind in the willows, year 4 really enjoyed debating whether Toad should serve a minimum term of 20 years imprisonment for stealing a motor car. Half of the group came up with reasons why Toad was innocent and the other half argued that he was guilty. After a heated discussion where both sides made their points, it was left to members of the jury to decide.

In 4HT the jurors deemed that the punishment was too strict, hence reducing it to 15 years. In 4RB, the jurors decided that Toad would need to have his driving license taken away from him and would have to pay a heavy fine alongside completing his sentenced imprisonment. However, in 4BC the jury decided the jail term was not enough and increased it to 25 years. A harsh lesson for poor Toad!

Year 4 - Maya Day

January 16, 2020

As an introduction to our spring topic based on the Maya civilisation, year 4 completed a number of activities linked to the ancient Maya. During the day, the children had the benefit of listening to archaeologist Dr Diane Davies about her first hand experiences in Central America and excavations of Maya areas and burial sites. We discussed how the Maya people created buildings, artwork and crafts, and writing and books, before we examined various artefacts and predicted what they were used for, made out of and who they belonged to. Finally, the children made Maya calendars and masks to take home as a reminder of the day.

For extra information on the ancient Maya or for any help with learning log activities based on the topic, please visit the excellent website

Wow! there has been some strange happenings in Reception this week! 

We came inside from playtime on Monday to find footprints!! Who did they belong to? How did they get there? The children believed these to be the footprints of a dinosaur! We discussed dinosaurs in our classes.

We thought of facts we already knew about dinosaurs, and then what we would like to find out. The children thought of some fantastic questions

Fire Service

December 09, 2019

Today the fire service visited Early Years. In the morning we met some of the firefighters from the local station. They brought some of the safety equipment that they use and clothing that they wear, and we talked about fire safety. In the afternoon we were very lucky to have a fire engine come to school. We looked at all of the equipment that was on board and saw the flashing lights! We had fun trying on helmets and sitting in the fire engine! The afternoon concluded with an extra surprise...A fire dog! We met one of the dogs that they use to help after a fire. These dogs are very clever as they can help us to find out what started a fire by using their very unique sense of smell. What a great day at school today!
