Well Dressing – “May Pole”

                                        

The children and members of the community came together at the start of the Autumn term to undertake and complete the school well. This is a village tradition, that the school is proud to be a part of. This is undertaken as part of the Wakes week.

The theme this year was dancing around the may pole dancing as the school children performs every May to the community. This is linked to the ‘Festival of Talents’ formally known as the flower festival.

Y6 End of year trip

On Thursday 13th July the three year 6 pupils, with Mrs Wildgoose and Mrs Flower set off for a day of fun to celebrate their SATS results and their transition to key stage three. The day started with an hour of bowling at Chesterfield Bowl, followed by lunch at McDonald’s then the cinema to see “Spiderman Homecoming”.
The bowling was quite competitive and both Josh and Jacob were determined to win. Jacob set of to a good start with a Strike on his first bowl. Mrs Wildgoose set of with beginners luck but soon fell by the wayside, as she admits she isn’t very good. We all benefited from having the bumper bars up!
Lunch at the new refurbished McDonalds went down a treat and the pupils got to play on the I-pads while the staff finished their meals. We walked across to the cinema and purchased our tickets for the back row. The children then got some ‘pick and mix’ sweets to eat during the film.
We arrived back at school at 4:30 pm having thoroughly enjoyed the day. Josh even had to admit that the film was great although he hadn’t wanted to watch it!
Mrs Wildgoose and Mrs Flower also enjoyed the film and the company of their year 6 pupils despite Mrs Flower having the occasional ‘Nod’.
We wish them every success in their new schools and future careers.

On Wednesday 12th July the whole school visited Under Whitle Farm, Sheen to pilot a trail devised from the ‘Peeling Back the Layers’ archaeological project. This has been put together by Dr Catherine Parker Heath , Elsbeth and Paul Walker. The trail has been design for educational visits and families visiting the area.

We had an interesting morning following the trail and identifying areas that artifacts had been uncovered during the archaeological dig which the pupils were lucky enough to have taken part in back in summer 2016. Following the walk the children went up into the barn to undertake some time line activities and investigate some of the artifacts found during the dig and discover who inhabited Under Whitle Farm many years ago.

This was followed by a picnic lunch and a run around in the field before heading back to school. An enjoyable morning was had by all. The open day and launch of the trail is on Sunday 16th July 2017. Good Luck!

A trip to the Himalayas

In KS2 we have been learning all about mountains during this summer term. On Tuesday 11th July we spent an enjoyable and really informative morning when Mr Simon Watkinson, a professional photographer, came into school to talk to us about his travels through the Himalayas. It was fascinating to find out about the people of the region and learn about how they have adapted to live in such harsh mountainous conditions.

His stunning photographs gave us a real insight into the lives of the people there.  He told us about the Sherpas who grow up in the Khumbu region and we even saw a photograph of the house in which Tenzing Norgay grew up before his successful ascent of Everest. We were also treated to a taste of the purest form of salt in the world – Himalayan rock salt.

The region around Kathmandu is still recovering from the terrible earthquake in 2015 and the photos of displaced families still living in tents made us realise how lucky we are.
