March 8, 2015: Brackenhurst visit reminder
Just a reminder we are going to Brackenhurst this week. Class four and seven are going on Wednesday 11th March Class one and six are going on Thursday 12th March Class three and five are going on Friday 13th March Children need to wear their own clothes, we will be outside all day so children need to wear layers of clothes to keep themselves warm. Hats and gloves are a good idea as it can be very cold in the lambing sheds. Wellington boots are advisable, don't worry if you don't have any, Brackenhurst has a supply of wellies to borrow. Children will need a pack lunch for their trip. We will be back at school in time for the end of the school day, traffic permitting. Posted with Blogsy

February 4, 2015: An unexpected visitor to class four
We have been exploring the animals that live in the rainforest, Many of the children researched the different snakes that live in the rainforest. Today we had an expert talk about corn snakes. B brought his corn snake in to school. B was a superb expert and shared his knowledge and expertise with the class. Corn Snakes are a small sized colubrid snake native to Central and the South-East of North America. They have been popular in the pet trade for many years and are a great beginner's snake for those new to snake keeping. Corn Snakes come in a variety of colours and patterns (morphs) and are a very attractive and docile species of snake. Posted with Blogsy

January 31, 2015: Clay Workshop at TCA with Mrs Kerr
Last Tuesday a group of mixed year group children got the chance to go with Mrs Kerr and Mrs Parr to Carlton Acadedmy for a Clay workshop. We were taught how to make tiles from the clay and used surrealist paintings to inspire us. We created a whole picture as a team by individually moulding sections of the picture, using a variety of tools to create different artistic effects on the clay. Well done to the children who attended the session and keep your eyes peeled for the final piece of artwork over the coming weeks. Posted with Blogsy
