Fire Service Visit

The Hedgehogs were lucky enough to have a visit from the Fire Service last week. They learned all about how to contact the Fire Brigade, and to watch the 'turntable ladder in action. Thank you to Mr Critchley for organising this for us.

New goal

We are very pleased to be able to confirm that we have today had installed a KS2 Goal Unit in memory of Sarah Barratt.  This is a wonderful tribute to Sarah given her love of sport and has been funded by the donations given in her memory.

Hares Class - earthquake structures

Hares class enjoyed making structures to withstand earthquakes. We thought about which shapes were needed in order to make the most effective building. We tested them using jelly! Can you guess which structure was the best?

Hedgehogs trip continued


Hedgehogs Sutton Courtenay trip

Hedgehogs had a fantastic trip, and learned a lot about how to keep bears healthy in the wild! We found out that bears need: food, water, oxygen and shelter, and then made sure our teddies had all of these things by completing a variety of activities.

Hedgehogs trip to the Undercroft

Hedgehogs enjoyed a trip to the Undercroft to buy vegetables, after they decided  to make the 3 Billy Goats Gruff some soup because they might be fed up eating grass!

The children made shopping lists, had a good look at the produce available and paid for the vegetables. Once back at school they had lots of fun peeling and chopping the vegetables ready for their soup. Finally they enjoyed tasting their soup before sharing it with the goats!
