We are delighted that our school has won the Royal Bath and West Show regional prize for the Youth Environment award! This resulted from us integrating Outdoor Learning into our whole curriculum - through landscapes, Forest School groups, Early Years and Nursery links, planting and growing, composting, litter picking, recycling, energy saving, school challenges such as the Woodpecker Challenge (Home Learning & Writing) and the Orchard Project (Home Learning and D&T). Children received their trophy and a cheque for £250 at the show.

Outdoor Learning continues to develop in a variety of forms and our teachers are increasingly planning everyday learning that makes use of our extensive outdoor space.
The past year has seen many opportunities for Outdoor Learning. In Term 5, a whole school learning project had family groups using the Old Orchard area for the first time with activities such as den-building. Children also reinforced their science knowledge in the School Copse, through fire-making and cooking, trying their hands at target golf, and making sculptures from natural materials.

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!
