Some exciting trips and visitors.

It has been an exciting week this week, with some classes enjoying learning outside the normal classroom. On Tuesday Class 5 headed off to see the dinosaurs and fossils in the Natural History Museum and came back armed with information and lots of questions to research.

Classes 3 and 4 thoroughly enjoyed their visits from Cap Science on Wednesday and also learnt lots. Class 4 now know all about the Water Cycle and Class 3 went home with the flowers they’d made and so are sure to have told their parents all about them and their knowledge of the different parts.

Yesterday it was Class 1 that were out of school, they were on a visit to the zoo. They had a great time investigating all the animals and even managed to enjoy lunch outdoors. Luckily they didn’t to bring any of the exciting animals back with them, just lots of new knowledge and stories to share.

We would like to thank everybody that helped to make the class trips possible, your support is always greatly appreciated.

Today Class 7/8 led Upper School assembly. They have been learning about William Shakespeare and some of his plays and shared this with their parents and the rest of Upper School. The class had been split into four groups of five children and had been asked to write, produce and perform Macbeth in less than three minutes. If you know Macbeth you will realise that it was not an easy task, although they made it look as though it was. They did an excellent job and all managed to enact the story in under three minutes. We are sure Shakespeare himself would have been impressed.

As you already know, next week is a short week, as there isn’t school on Thursday or Friday, so there will be plenty to fit into the other days.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best Wishes,

The Leadership Team
