"Where Childhood Matters"


Tuesday 14th July

Mr Saltonstall took our Year 4 key workers on a no-expense-spared guided tour of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! We had a fabulous trip and got to see all the important sights. Here are some of our souvenir photos of our day to round off the brilliant Harry Potter topic we have enjoyed this term.

Thursday 2nd July

In our Forest Schools work this week, Year 4 made rafts for a little pirate (The Year 1 teams have been learning about pirates all week!!). Only 3 rafts were finished and were not sure how safe Archie & Christopher's was. Libby was voted our winning designer and builder! ⛵

"We've been 'magicing' water using only natural resources! We part-filled bowls with leaves, grass and other natural items and placed a small bowl inside in the middle. We then covered the whole thing in cling film and placed a stone on top in the middle to weigh down the 'roof'. We then left the bowl in the sun for a few hours. As if by magic, clean water appeared in the small bowl! Magic!"
