Canal Visit to Devizes

The children enjoyed a fantastic day out to Devizes Wharf where they had the opportunity to go on  barge through some locks before returning to visit the canal museum. At the end of the afternoon they loved dressing up in traditional canal costumes – posing for the photograph though and keeping a straight face proved difficult!


Our Visit from the Canal and River Trust

On Tuesday we had a visit from Jan Davey from the Canal and River Trust to talk to us about water safety. We all enjoyed looking at her poster and spotting some of the dangerous and silly things that people ere choosing to do on and around water.

we learnt the letters   S  A   F   E  to remind us to Stay Away From the Edge.

This is particularly important from Maple Class as they prepare for their Canal Trip on Friday!

Art Week Day 1

Art Week has arrived!

This year the children have been arranged slightly differently, with each year group being split across 6 classes. Each ‘new’ class has been given a Christian Value that makes our school a wonderful place to be. These include : Trust, Courage, Respect, Kindness, Truthfulness and Forgiveness. To follow what the children in different groups are doing please check out the other class blogs.

On Monday the children working in Maple Class were introduced to their Christian Value of ‘Forgiveness’. They started the day with an hour dance workshop with Cheryl from Marlborough Dance which will be performed Friday afternoon. On returning to class, they thought about what ‘Forgiveness’ meant to them before making their own forgiving hands.

They also made some bunting using a range of buttons and ribbons.

Wonderful walk for Ascension Day

Yesterday Maple Class joined the rest of the school on their wonderful (but hot) walk up to Woodborough Hill. Once arrived the children listened to Reverend Larkey before tucking eagerly into their packed lunches.

Tag, hide and seek and other games followed before the descent back down and back to school. Not one child in Maple Class moaned that their legs hurt so well done to you all!
