Reception- Aldenham Country Park
|On Thursday May 18th, 120 EYFS pupils visited Aldenham Country Park in Bushey. We had fine weather and everyone had a super time. We visited the adventure playground where the children showed us their amazing climbing and balancing skills, we went to the 100 Aker wood and saw Winnie the Pooh and all his friends’ houses, we played Pooh sticks at the bridge and met the animals on the farm. Some of the children had the lucky treat of meeting Pooh himself; he had so many hugs that afternoon! We sat down for a delicious picnic lunch together while the sun was still shining. All the children enjoyed their first school trip and were a credit to the school. We would like to thank all the parent helpers who came with us to help us enjoy our day.|
Year 6- Gordon Brown
On Monday 5th June 63 eager Year 6 children left the school premises to go to the renowned Gordon Brown Activity Centre. They spent 5 exhilarating days experiencing a range of activities from feeding chickens to rock climbing. for many children this was the longest time they had spent away from their families. Five lucky teachers came on this trip: Mr James, Miss Tuhrim, Miss Davies, Miss Pennant and Miss Hutchinson!
Everyday there was a variety of activities to participate in including archery, power-fan, shelter building, riverside study and much, much more!
At the centre there were many things to do between activities. The children visited the animals on site: goats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, donkeys and even a couple of stray ducks. There was also an awesome shop where the children could buy souvenirs.
Every night there would be a fun activity planned for all to enjoy. The children and adults played hide and seek in the forest, went on a scary night walk, had a cool movie night and then to end the week had a disco!
Overall, both the children and adults learnt something new, pushed themselves and thoroughly enjoyed their week!
Skye-Marie (6KJ) said, "it was an amazing experience for me and my classmates. My friends almost wet their pants when we went on the night walk!"
Cristiano (6KJ) said, "I had such a good week my favourite part was EVERYTHING! I almost got a bull's-eye at archery!"
Year 6- National History Museum
Year 3- Chiltern Open Air Museum
This month Year 3 visited the Chiltern Open Air Museum to find out more about their current topic – the Stone Age!
Year 3 children went back in time to learn lessons from the Stone Age people. Half of the day involved making fire, making Stone Age huts for shelter and making Stone Age jewelry. We also used paint from pigments to paint tribe symbols on trees!
The other half of the day involved going inside an Iron Age hut to help the Stone Age people make butter, bread and clay pots.
The trip gave us great insight to how people once lived. It was a fantastic day for everyone and we learned lots about our topic, we can’t wait to learn more!
