What a fantastic start to the term with a whole school trip to Grafham Water Centre! The children spent two days participating in a range of outdoor adventure activities which included orienteering, team building, problem solving, bouldering, den building and fire lighting. We enjoyed toasting our marshmallows on the camp fire after searching for the perfect toasting sticks! The children really enjoyed the two days and coped with the change of routine really well. They enjoyed sitting together to eat our packed lunches and talking about our day. On Wednesday we all came back to school and spent time talking about our favourite activities at Grafham Water.
Reception and year 1 have been exploring shapes this week, reminding themselves of 2D and 3D shape names, sorting shapes and discussing their properties.
Our new topic this term is Castes: Mottes and Moats. Year 1 have been set homework to find out some facts about castles. Espresso is a good place to start! We are really looking forward to a fun and exciting term ahead!
