• We The Curious

    This week Year 5 went on an exciting trip to ‘We the Curious’ in Bristol and it was brilliant. We watched a 3D film called ‘We are Aliens’ in the Planetarium- we wore 3D glasses, which was so cool as you were looking all over space. We were able to explore the Science activities on the ground floor and there were over 250 activities to do. Overall we had a really great time.

     

  • Year 4 Visit to the Roman Baths

    Year 4 had a wonderful trip to the Roman Baths this week.

  • Year 1 Visit to Carymoor

    This week, Year 1 ventured to Castle Cary to visit Carymoor Environmental Centre.  When we arrived, there were posters displayed to say that Henry the Hedgehog had sadly gone missing.  The staff asked if we could help them to find him, which we all agreed we would love to! Over the next few hours, we learned about Henry’s habitat and those of his friends, Freddie Fox, Vicky Vole, Bertie Badger……..

    We discovered lots of information about different UK animal habitats and understood what they need to survive. We found different animal tracks and even saw some of Henry’s friends!

    Luckily, after much searching and learning about wild native British animals, we discovered that Henry was in fact preparing to hibernate for the winter. We were all delighted to find him and know he was going to be safe in the coming cold Winter months.

  • Harvest Festival

    Today we celebrated our Harvest Festival and children in Reception were officially welcomed to the school by placing a pebble into our school’s ‘Koinonia Dish’ in addition to being presented with a Bible by Father Christopher. As is our custom, donations of food were collected for the Somer Valley Food Bank.

  • Cross Country Club

    We had an amazing turn out for cross county club this year; 16 eager runners showed up on Thursday and braced the wind and rain. The pace was speedy and the group enjoyed running through the nature reserve, the railway path, hill reps and splashing in the river. We’re looking forward to this season of cross country training.

  • Welcome Back

    Welcome back and a very warm welcome to our new reception and nursery pupils, and new pupils who join us this term.

    Our KS2 children were lucky enough to watch the amazing Tour of Britain cyclists make their majestic (yet speedy) entrance through Midsomer Norton on Tuesday!

    This was a once in a lifetime experience and our children made sure they cheered the incredible athletes (including Geraint Thomas and Chris Froome) as they travelled past us.

  • Open Mornings

  • EYFS and Year 1 Trip to Longleat

    EYFS and Year 1 had a fantastic trip to Longleat. When we first arrived we went on the boat and saw the new baby gorillas, then we went on the train. After that we explored lots of the animals like the meerkats, the penguins and the anteaters and some of us managed to fit in the Adventure Playground and the Rocking Rhino ride. After our picnic lunch we got back on the coaches to see all the animals on the safari. It was a brilliant day, but we were all very tired by the end!

  • Year 6 Pilgrim Day

    Year 6 pupils visited Wells Cathedral this week as they took part in their Pilgrim Day, they enjoyed a guided tour of the cathedral and workshops which helped them to consider the hopes and challenges of moving on.

     

  • St. John’s Day

    This week we celebrated St John’s Day at school.  Key stage one were lucky enough to be part of a drama assembly, kindly put on by volunteers from Welton Baptist Church and then followed up with some dove themed crafts in class.  Years 5 and 6 visited the church, freely exploring the different parts and were all excited to be able to climb the tower!  Each child in the school created bunting which depicts what is special about them or our school – this will be out on display for you all to see for future events.
