Year 6 safely arrived back in school this afternoon after their residential trip to East Barnby.

The children have enjoyed rock pooling, canoeing, den building to name but a few activities, as well as having a Halloween party.

Here are a few pictures to give you a taste of what the outdoor activity centre has to offer.  Visit their web site for more information by clicking on the link below.

RSPB School Wildlife Challenge

Posted 13/10/2017

We are proud to announce that we are participating in the RSPB School Wildlife Challenge and the children have already earned the BRONZE award ! 

We are now working towards the SILVER award.  Children will be looking at home as they go out for walks, and at school for mini beasts, small animals as well as birds over the next two weeks. They can take a print-out of various insects and animals and can tick them off when they see them.  There is also a space for the children to draw.

We have a mini pond under construction from the children in The Sensory Garden, and the children are also excited to make a start on a toad and frog habitat (hibernaculum)which they will make in the main school pond area. (If anyone has any clean off-cuts of drain pipe they could use, we would be very grateful.)

Crucial Crew is a multi-agency event supported by the Fire Service, the Police, the Ambulance Service, Her Majesty’s Prison Service, Victim Support, Drugs awareness, School Nurses as well as the National Trust. Their aim is to raise awareness of safety issues to school children in Year 6.
