Year 5 and 6 went to London

Friday, 27 June 2014

Mr Barrow and other members of staff took a group of year 5 and 6 children to London for the day. We got the train to London and travelled around London on the tube. We visited Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, followed by a trip to the science museum and a trip to Harrods. We couldn’t believe how big London was and were very tired when we got home.

Year 5 and 6 went to France – ooh la la!

Monday, 23 June 2014

Year 5 and 6 spent the week in France. We had a very early start to get to the ferry. We visited lots of areas affected by World War II. We spent lots of time on the beach and visited a market whereby some of us practiced our French. It was an amazing experience and wish we could do it again.

Science afternoon!

Wednesday, 18 June 2014

Today, key stage 2 spent the afternoon learning and practicing their science skills. All the children were mixed up and rotated around the different classrooms carrying out different science experiments. The children looked like they thoroughly enjoyed it, especially in Mrs Pollards class whereby children were experimenting with chocolate! And I believe were able to eat some at the end!

More athletics fun at Edmondscote!

Thursday, 12 June 2014

Yesterday was the track events at Edmondscote athletics track. Children from year 3,4,5,6 competed to win a place at the finals. It was incredibly hot, we very nearly melted, but it was worth it, excitement levels were high! None of the children had anything left to give you should all be proud of yourselves! Well done to Jenny and Oliver Rose who won their events and good luck Oliver for the finals!

Year 3/4 survived the bushcraft!

Friday, 6 June 2014

Last weekend year 3/4 took part in a 2-day bushcraft camp. We learnt how to light fires, find water, cook our own food and how to put up tents to name but a few activities. We even camped over night at school! We had a lot of fun and the weather was very good to us. Even when it rained on Saturday we didn’t mind, it added to the fun.  Thank you to all the teachers who helped us especially Mr Russell who came and turned off the school alarm which Mrs Darlington set off by mistake! The trip was a fantastic experience we want to do it again!
