So the first Friday back at school was a 'WOW' day...all the pupils got to dress up as Romans as part of their new topic, which is entitled, “Up, Pompeii Up “ and will focus on learning about the Romans, their lives, key events and historical figures as well as the impact they had on Britain.

Healthy Eating
During our “Le Chocolat” topic the children spent time learning about healthy eating. This involved finding out how much sugar is in their favourite chocolate bars, but also focused on the eatwell plate, which teaches us about nutrition and ensuring that we eat a healthy, balanced diet of food.

Fairtrade

Fairtrade
Children learnt about the history of chocolate, its origins (where it came from), who discovered it and what raw cocoa nibs taste like. This led us to examine fair-trade and the children learnt about its importance in ensuring that farmers received a fairer return for their hard work.

Our Easter Pilgrimage 2015

on Thursday, 14 May 2015. Posted in Head Teacher

Our Easter Pilgrimage 2015
Following the success of last year’s Pilgrimage we decided to have a second Easter Pilgrimage visiting 2 more churches that our school serves. It was particularly poignant because, as a school community, we were grieving from the loss of Mr Chris Barron, who was the husband of our Year three and Year four teacher and the father of Jemma (a Year 1 pupil) and Olivia, Poppy and Will, past pupils of our school. Last year Chris had joined us as a ‘fellow Pilgrim’ on our journey through 4 churches, assisting with transportation, guiding the small footsteps of our younger children and lending a helping hand. As always he was often there on our ‘big adventures,’ giving quiet assistance in a variety of ways.
