Trees pruning

You will have noticed that we have had the trees at the front of the school pollarded in an effort to restrict their growth in such a confined space. This was long overdue as the trees had become overgrown and unmanageable as well as potentially dangerous. We should see leaves growing back in a few months time. The Nursery playground now has a lot more natural light but it is also more visible, so in order to make this area more secure we are shortly installing a 1.5m high cane bamboo screen whilst we plant and grow new laurel trees.

Year 4 visit to The Thames Explorer Trust

Year 4 visited the The Thames Explorer Trust as part of their new Geography unit on Rivers. During their visit, the children found out about the features of a river, erosion and deposition, land use patterns and how they have changed over time. They also played a great 'floor game' which involved creating a natural river habitat to help them to understand food chains and adaptations.

Fighting for Survival visit to Florence Nightingale Museum

Apricots and Damsons visited the Florence Nightingale Museum and took part in a special workshop ‘Meet Miss Nightingale’. Children had a fabulous time and studied and sketched the impressive statue of Mary Seacole and took part in a fantastic workshop where they learned all about Florence's life. They even had a chance to dress up as nurses and soldiers and saw Florence's pet owl Athena in a glass case!'
