Mr Holdship visits KS1


Mr Holdship kindly visited KS1  last week.The children really enjoyed hearing about Oxfordshires 'connection' to dinosaurs, as well as learning even more  interesting facts about dinosaurs. They loved seeing the dinosaurs jaw and claws and other amazing fossils too . We certainly think a visit to Oxford Science Museum and to Woodstock Muesum are now a must! Many thanks again Mr Holdship, for a great morning .

Mr Holdship comes to visit.

Thank you to Mr Holdship who came in today to talk to us about dinosaurs.  We didn't know that Oxfordshire is 'dinosaur territory', with many dinosaur bones found in the area.  The children had great fun finding out about the different periods of time and particularly enjoyed exploring the fossils.

We had lots of fun exploring the world of Roald Dahl. From crawling through Fantastic Mr Fox's hole to going inside James' giant peach! We also did some observational drawing of insects and then created our own.

Jono Lancaster visits Year 5 and 6

Over the last few weeks, the Red Kites, Golden Eagles and Swallows have been looking at the book ‘Wonder’. We have been learning about Treacher Collins Syndrome and how it affects a the main character from the book, Auggie.

Treacher Collins is a syndrome that only affects the face. Most of the time the cheekbones don’t develop properly and this can make the eyes look ‘droopy’.

This Tuesday we had a visitor in Year 5 and 6 whose name is Jono Lancaster. Jono has TCS and has set up a charity to help other carriers get the operations they need. He travels the world to help children who cannot afford the treatment they desperately need. In assembly, Jono gave an inspiring speech about his life growing up with TCS. Years 5 and 6 have been having cake sales, the whole school have been collecting penny pots and on Friday we will all be dressing in blue to raise even more money for the charity.

Thank you to all of those who have already donated.

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the parents who came to 'Join our Journey' this morning.  We had lots of fun making stars, gliders and party hats.
