After last year's very successful outdoor nativity, we are again going to hold a winter event under the stars!
This Christmas, the children will be re-telling the Russian folk-tale of Baboushka, the old woman who met the three wise men on their search for Baby Jesus, and was offered a chance to go with them.
The event will be held on Thursday December 8th, at 5pm, around the school. After the children have performed, hot drinks and mince pies will be available, and we have live music outdoors as well.
Come along and help us make it a great evening!

On Tuesday 15 February we went on a year 5/6 rainforest trip to do with our topic lessons. The Living Rainforest was in Berkshire. There were some amazing things there and they were very interesting.
Animals: We saw all different kinds of animals in the living rainforest. We also learnt about their adaptations (How and why they grow up to be like they are). We saw Goldie’s monkeys, an agouti, lizards, chameleons, birds, insects, toucans, fish and many more.
Plants: We learnt about the plants there and we also learnt about their adaptations too.
