Runways End


The first day started with much excitement as the children found out their groups and rooms. We then headed to our rooms for our first task of the day...the hardest challenge for some....bed making!

After this we begun the outdoor activities which included 3 of the following activities:
  • problem solvinh
  • kayaking
  • rock climbing
  • caving
  • orienteering
  • archery

In the evening, we gathered around the campfire and sung songs, ate marshmallows and had lots of fun. 

The following day, we awoke to a lovely breakfast of cereal and toast and completed the remaining activities. Exhausted, we headed home with some wonderful memories to share with our friends and family.

Multi Skill Stars

Taking Over the Senior School Sports Hall

Earlier this afternoon, members of year 3 and 4 travelled to the senior school to take part in a variety of sporting activities. Led by the senior school PE leaders, the children spent the session trying out sports like badminton, basketball and, of course, football (in preparation for the England game!). All children who took part gave 100% effort, even in the hot sports hall; it was great to see the children getting stuck into all the activities.

At the end of the session, all children were awarded with a certificate and medal for taking part with enthusiasim and for being the best that they could be. Thank you to all the parents and family members who attended and encouraged the children throughout.

Although this is the last sporting event of this year, I am looking forward to next year and seeing the children try their best in all the sporting competitions we participate in.

Today, year 6 enjoyed a range of activities including, quad biking, the climbing wall, low ropes, team building and aeroball. Although it was extremely warm, everyone had a great day - especially the teachers! We were really proud of how the children showed determination to overcome their fears and the way they worked together as a team, always encouraging others. Well done Year 6! Here is a sneaky peek of what we got up to ...

Kew Gardens

Year 3 had a fun-filled adventure at Kew Gardens on Friday 22nd June. The weather was certainly on our side and we spent the day in glorious sunshine, visiting the attractions Kew Gardens has to offer.


We also took part in an instructor-led activity, pollinating Lillies with a paintbrush!

The case of the mysterious break in...

Pupils in Year 3 were welcomed back to school this half term with some news... there had been a 'mysterious' break in to the school over the half-term. The supposed culprit had left some very unusual clues and it was up to the year 3 pupils to use their inference and deduction skills to work out the following key questions:




Who had broken in?
Where had they been in the school?
What had the culprits damaged/taken?
When had this happened?
Why did this incident occur.




Pupils worked together in small groups to investigate the scenes of the crime and over the week, most groups had become pretty confident with their conclusions.


They will be writing a newsreport based on the break in in the coming weeks... watch this space!
