Brilliant Barfields!

Year 6's End of Year Treat

After working extremely hard all year, the year 6 children earnt themselves their trip to Barfields this week. While 6L and half of 6K travelled to Barfields on Wednesday this week, the remaining children from 6K and the whole of 6P spent the day there today.

Luckily for the children, the British Summer finally arrived this week and the children were able to take part in all the activities with the sun shining down on them. Throughout the day, the children pushed themselves to new heights on the climbing wall, worked as a team on the low robes and team building, felt a need for speed on the quad bikes and bounced themselves tired on the areoball. 

All children had a great time taking part in the sessions, some of which they had never completed before. 

Thank you to all the parents for your support in getting the children to and from the venue, we really apprecaite your help.

Kew Gardens

On Friday 21st June, Year 3 visited the beautiful botanical gardens at Kew, London. Most began the day experiencing the magnificent Tree Top Walk which meant we could admire the spectacular views of Kew. After that, we went inside Temperate House and Palm House where we saw plants and trees from all around the world! During our workshop on pollination, the children got to use small paintbrushes to see if they could find some pollen that the bees had left. 3J's group even witnessed a bee that had 2 huge pollen sacks. It had definitely been busy that day! We all learnt about the life cycle of a plant and even identified the different types of bees who were busy working under the glorious sunshine. Well done to all of the children who were impeccably behaved. We had such a great day out learning about a range of plants!

Think Safe Event

Year 6 Learn How to be Safe in the Community

Even though it was a rather wet and rainy day, year 6 spent the morning at the annual Think Safe Event. Here, they took part in 7 different events where they learnt how to be safe in the community.

The activities tested their current knowledge and reactions, as well as informing them of what they should do in different situations. The activities included sessions with the police, the military police, south western railway and the fire brigade. The children should be coming home tonight and checking your smoke detectors work in your homes! Although some children did get try on handcuffs while we were then, we can inform you that all children were returned to school safely.

Take a look at some of our pictures below to see what we got up to.
