Year 2 Trip to Cheddar Caves - 6th June 2024

 

Year 2 had the most wonderful trip to Cheddar Caves. The children visited Gough's cave where they learnt about Cheddar Man, and Cox's cave where they learnt about the journey of the Yeo river and how it formed the caves millions of years ago. The children had a workshop session where they spoke to a cave woman about making fire and how Stone Age people lived. Some of the children even had time to tackle Jacob's Ladder! 

 

A big thank you to all of the grown ups who joined us on our trip and to the brilliant staff at Cheddar Gorge and Caves.

Street Pastors Assembly - 3rd June 2024

 

Today in assembly we heard from our very own Mrs Kus, who coordinates the Street Pastors in Weston-super-Mare. 
 

It was great for the children to hear about the work that these kind and selfless people do. They are committed to making a difference and their values of ‘Caring, Listening, Helping’ are so similar to our own. 

 

We want all of our children to grow into caring adults who are willing and able to make a contribution and we hope that stories like this will help to inspire them. 

Thank you, Mrs Kus - you were fab โค๏ธ ๐ŸŒณ 

Year 4 Camp - 22nd-24th May 2024

The children in Group 1 have had a blast at Mendip Outdoor Pursuits today.


The rain this morning certainly did not dampen their spirits and they were in the go ALL day, throwing themselves into every activity.

 

They may have returned to school a teeny bit muddy and a little damp. Surprisingly, a water fight did not help and many have gone to bed with their muddy warm paint still intact ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

 

50% of the children have claimed that their toothbrush was MIA. On average, they were sent back to their tents three times to have ‘another look.’ All toothbrushes were located, believe it or not, in their bags! ๐Ÿชฅ ๐Ÿฆท โœจ 

 

The children have been snuggled down in their tents for over an hour. We think they are pretty exhausted from their adventures… it is looking like tomorrow will be a quiet one for this bunch ๐Ÿ˜ด ๐Ÿฅฑ ๐Ÿ’ค

The children in Group 2 had a fantastic day at Mendip Outdoor Pursuits.


The day was a lot drier but certainly no less muddy. The children were able to make up for the lack of rain by throwing themselves into the water activities (literally)… some children seemed to want to spend longer in the water than they did in the kayak or on the paddle board ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ›ถ Turns out, it is harder than it looks!

 

Back at school, got dry and clean then wet again with their epic water fight.

 

This group appeared to be nocturnal. They had a superhuman ability to still be awake after midnight and then wake up before the birds the next day! The tent ‘shushing’ started at 5:45am and continued at 10 minute intervals until 6:30am when the adults admitted defeat ๐Ÿณ๏ธ ๐Ÿฅด

EYFS Farm Trip - 15th, 16th and 17th May
 

Our EYFS children took a trip to the farm. Each class took it in turns to visit the farm across 3 days. They had glorious weather and a wonderful day.

 

The highlight for many children was a trip on the tractor and its enormous trailer. The cows got SO close! ๐Ÿšœ๐Ÿฎ 

 

The children also went pond dipping and fed pellets to the lambs. The met some well-behaved chickens and made dens in the woods ๐Ÿชต ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿ‘ 

 

We are always proud to take our children out into the community and EYFS was no exception. Huge thanks to Lyecross Farm for providing a fantastic experience for our children.

EYFS Police Visit - 21st March 2024

 

Our Reception classes had a visit from the police yesterday. Children learnt about the important role that the police have in the community. They also enjoyed trying on the uniform and exploring the police van.


A big thank you to Avon and Somerset Police for taking the time to visit us and make the morning so much fun for the children ๐Ÿคฉ 

Year 1 Worle Walk - 19th March 2024


As part of their learning in history, Year 1 have been on a walk up Worle High Street this week. The children have explored how some buildings have changed over time, and how some still look the same after over 100 years!  
 

Next time you're walking/driving to school, ask your children to see if they can spot the changes we saw on our walk!

Year 1 Visit from North Somerset Birds of Prey Centre - 21st February 2024

 

What a hoot Year 1 had this week! ๐Ÿฆ‰


We have started reading "Owl, Bat, Bat, Owl" by Marie-Louise Fitzpatrick and in the coming weeks, we will be writing Owl fact files and writing our own versions of the story.

 

To help inspire us, Brandon and Isla from North Somerset Bird of Prey Centre came to school to tell us all about owls and even brought some owls, feathers and eggs along with them to show us. 

We loved seeing them up close and learning learning about them. 

 

Here are some of our favourite Owl facts. 

 

Did you know not all owls are nocturnal? Owls with bright yellow eyes wake in the day. Owls with dark eyes, wake at night. 

 

Some people think owls can turn their heads all the way around. However, they can only turn them 270 degrees. 

 

The species "Little owls" have markings on the back of their head that look like eyes. This is to scare off their predators. 

 

Some owls have whiskers around their bills which work like cat whiskers.

Year 1 Visit from Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm - 6th February 2024
 

Year 1 had a very special visit from Noah's Ark Zoo Farm. The zookeepers showed the children lots of different animals and artefacts. The children worked together to classify them into the five groups of vertebrates. 


They impressed the zookeepers so much their our knowledge! 

 

This was the first of 3 special experiences with expert visitors that have been arranged for the Y1 children at school. Next… birds of prey!

Year 3 Trip to Bristol Museum - 21st November 2023

 

Year 3 made it to Bristol Museum on Friday and had a wonderful time! The children loved exploring the museum’s exhibitions and the mystery boxes in their Ancient Egypt workshop

 

They were so very well-behaved that they were complimented by the museum staff and members of the public. 

 

A big thank you to the staff at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery for looking after us so well and for such an engaging workshop on Ancient Egypt, and to the parent volunteers who came along for the day.

 

Well done Year 3 - you continue to make us proud! โญ๏ธ
