Growing Vegetables with Form 3.

By | All School News

This term Form 3 have been learning about how potatoes (and vegetables) are grown in science. The class were all very excited to see that they had grown so well and were eager to taste them. The potatoes were cleaned, cooked and eaten – from field to fork (or from balcony to spoon!) in 1.5 hours.  The children loved the taste of the fresh potatoes, with butter and seasoning. This year was a bumper crop, probably thanks to the cool, damp summer we’ve had. So plenty more spuds going home!

On Tuesday 9th July 2019, Form 6 hosted a fair for the Reception classes in the playground. The girls planned and designed their stands in pairs, and their great ideas for games included a treasure hunt, guess the name of the teddy bear, design your own bracelet, guess what’s in the box, decorate a gingerbread man and a colouring corner.

The Reception children had a lot of fun trying out all the different stalls.

Year 2 Boys Forest Adventure Day

By | All School News

The Year 2 Boys’ trip to Alice Holt Forest was a resounding success, with everyone learning a range of army survival skills under the guidance of resident expert Nigel.

From eating ants’ eggs and locating and handling slow-worms, to making their own camouflage paint from dock leaves, the boys were taught the ways of the forest, including which plants can be plucked straight from the earth and eaten (and are actually quite tasty!), to ones which should generally be avoided due to their poisonous content.

The trail was completed by making waterproof woodland dens, lighting flints to start the campfire and, most importantly of all, roasting marshmallows.

A fantastic day was had by all.
