• Year 4 Trip to Holburne Museum

    As a part of our year-long Arts Award topic, Year 4 went on an enjoyable trip to the Holburne Museum earlier this week. Their friendly staff were very helpful and informative. We were grateful to have the opportunity to interview members of staff to find out how arts organisations work. After we were shown around the historic building and fascinating exhibits, we had great fun creating our own clay sculptures inspired by the ones we had seen. The work that we have done as part of the trip will form an important part of evidence towards completing the Arts Award. Mr Brownlow and Mrs Fryer would like to say a huge thank you to the staff and parent helpers who helped to make the trip go so smoothly.

  • Year 6 visited by local MP

    Year 6 was lucky enough to be visited by Jacob Rees-Mogg, our local MP. They asked a number of very well thought out questions relating to our school focus on Rights Respecting and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Mr Rees-Mogg was very impressed by the quality of their questions and we will be writing to him with our views on what he said as part of the curriculum.

  • EYFS Trip to @Bristol

    Children in EYFS enjoyed a trip to @Bristol yesterday.  It was a fantastic (but very tiring!) day and everyone had a lovely time. The children really enjoyed the hands-on science activities that were on offer and took part in a Jungle Senses workshop. This was a fantastic finale to last term’s theme ‘Roaming in the Rainforest’.

  • Djembe Drumming Performance

    The whole school was treated to a fantastic drumming performance yesterday afternoon. The show was the finale of 10 weeks of hard work by Year 6 pupils, who demonstrated wonderful enthusiasm and commitment throughout the project. Thank you and well done to all the pupils involved for your hard work and impressive approach to polishing your skills in preparation for the performance.

     

  • Year 6 Skype Call with China

    In year 6, we have been studying China and towards the end of last term, we sent letters to a school in China. Both classes managed to produce some amazing writing, and the school was obviously impressed because this week we set up a Skype call with the class. We taught them the story of Easter, and they taught us about a Chinese festival called the Dragon Boat festival. We also shared some phrases; they taught us how to say fish and chips in Mandarin, and we taught them the meaning of ‘gert lush!’ We are hoping to connect with them further in the future, and until then, keep your eyes on the Midsomer Norton and Radstock Journal which covered the story!
