The Year 1 and 2 children loved our candle making workshop run by staff from the Chiltern Open Air museum. We learnt lots about lighting from the past and enjoyed making and taking home our own Beeswax candles. We did some great writing inspired by our learning, including writing about candles and instruction writing.
The KS1 children are loving their new book corners! Reading is a favourite activity of choice! Thank you for all the lovely things sent in from parents to help us build these areas for the children.
Please see below the learning experiences of Year 1 and 2 for the academic year 2017-2018!
The children enjoyed our WOW morning with a real fire on the KS1 playground! We used the experience to create some fantastic fire poetry!

Children enjoying our fabulous KS1 Sports Day! Well done to all involved.
Great fun was had by all on our KS1 trip to Warwick Castle aimed at inspiring and exciting our children as we begin our new topic 'Who's in Charge'.
The children loved coming into school with their packed suitcases and boarding the aeroplane for this week's WOW day to introduce our new topic 'Around the World in 80 Days'. The children enjoyed activities which included making their own passports, tasting food from the four countries they visited Gambia, France, Japan and Canada. They made totem poles in Canada, sang a french nursery rhyme and learnt animal names in french, they danced in Gambia and did Taiko drumming in Japan!
Year 2 children loved using the school's new Bee-Bots. They designed their own algorithms then learnt how to program them to move between two given points on a grid. For most children their algorithms did not work first time so they had to debug them- this required a great deal of resilience and the joy on their faces when they finally succeeded is easy to see!
Sports for Schools was a huge hit with the KS1 children. They enjoyed the sponsored fitness circuit- even the teachers and support staff joined in! Everyone found Luke Delahunty's assembly that followed truly inspirational. A huge success- we look forward to finding out how much the school has raised!
This year's World Book Day was a great success. All the Year 1 and 2 children loved talking about the characters they and their friends had come dressed as. They shared their favourite books and enjoyed listening to stories.
On Monday 30th January Year 2s led the school assembly on 'Being Reflective'. The children came up with all the ideas themselves during an afternoons brainstorming session. They were brilliant. Here is the assembly power point and photos.
The children loved our latest Big Wow moment where they got to meet the animals of Ark Farm. This helped introduce our latest topic 'Wonderful Wildlife and Crazy Creatures'
Christmas Fun- Nativity performances, calendar making and Christmas parties!
Here are pictures of our big WOW moment when we introduced our Autumn topic 'My World and I' through a scavenger hunt that took us all around the school!
During Arts week the children produced art pieces inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Below are some pictures of the children using junk modelling to recreate a building similar to the architectural designs of Hundertwasser
