Looking forward to a fun filled day
Tuesday 15th May, post morning catch-up
Wow! What a morning! The sun has continued to shine upon us, which is probably a good job as we all have water wars today. This morning the children have been hover boarding, karting, climbing, fencing and water wars amongst others. Everyone is having a brilliant time and we are looking forward to this afternoon’s mayhem and the dressing up for the disco tonight.
PS: Mrs Morris, Mrs Langford and Mrs Nightingale may have got a little wet!

Tuesday 15th May, evening update
A fab afternoon! We’ve continued to have a brilliant time. After four activities the children are exhausted but funnily enough they have enough energy for the disco. I’m sure they will all sleep soundly tonight.

Y4 Residential Trip - Day 1
Monday 14th May, 4pm
It has been a gloriously sunny day! The children have enjoyed a tour of the site and have settled into their rooms. After lunch they completed their first activity and are currently on their second. All good so far, no tears! They are looking forward to dinner and the camp fire tonight. We haven't had a chance to download any photos yet. We will do this when we can.
This evening’s update
We have had a fantastic first day at our residential site. The children have enjoyed a range of activities including fencing, archery, body zorbing and hover boarding in glorious sunshine. They enjoyed their first evening meal and tucked into pasta, enchiladas, salads and more. We have just experienced a great camp fire before heading to bed (hopefully for a good night’s sleep) in preparation for a jam packed day tomorrow.
More updates to follow.

"On Tuesday 14th March, we went to Tescos. There we tried to spot Rainforest Alliance and Fairtrade logos. One of the things we found was the Happy Monkey smoothies. We worked in groups for this, so it was easier for us to spot them. Later we got to taste chocolate. I enjoyed trying to guess how much milk was in each of the chocolates we tried. They were milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. The white chocolate had the most milk in. Then we went to the back of the store and explored the fridges and freezers. The freezers were freezing! At the end we got a goodie bag to take home. We really enjoyed the trip to Tescos."

As part of our Stargazers learning project this term, Year 5 visited the National Space Centre. We learnt about the history of space travel and enjoyed exploring the model of the ISS! We learnt about how hard it is to be an astronaut by watching a film in the Planetarium and practised being real life astronauts in the Space Race!
St.Peter’s church was full to capacity as friend and family joined the children and staff in worship at our Annual Christmas Carol Service. The children created a wonderful spiritual atmosphere with candle light, carols, readings and prayer as they retold the story of the nativity. They sang a mix of traditional and new carols, accompanied by the school orchestra. Thank you to the children, staff and the St.Peter’s ministry team for helping us all to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
On Tuesday 4th October, Years 3 and 6 excitedly headed off to Cadbury World to learn all about the cocoa bean. Year 3 listened to a talk on Cadbury’s chocolate and how it is made as part of their topic, Scrumdiddlyumptious. Year 6’s presentation encompassed their ¡Hola Mexico! topic and they spent time learning about the Maya people, their customs, legends and lifestyles. They were shocked to learn that you could buy a slave for measly 100 cocoa beans but a turkey would set you back a whopping 200 beans! They were also confronted with tricky Mayan maths problems complete with their numerical symbols which turned out to be more fiendish than pesky Roman numerals! During the trip we also got to take a tour around the factory, find out about the Cadbury family and learn about chocolate throughout the ages. You can see the Year 3s learning about the Georgian chocolate houses in the photos. The 4D experience was a hit with everyone with many whoops, cheers and screams being heard as we dove head-first into a big vat of chocolate and took a trip on the chocolate rollercoaster from the Crunchie advert. We were also treated to a pot of melted chocolate which, by the amount that was smeared around the children’s faces, was very much enjoyed!
Year 4 had a fantastic time at Grendon, as you can see from the photos!
