Porridge!

We are so proud of Mighty Oaks for putting on such a fantastic school production, and hope family and friends enjoyed the show.

Thank you very much for your generous donations to the World Wildlife Fund, the charity chosen by Year 6.  We raised a grand total of £100, and a cheque has been sent to them today.

 

Graffiti on the playground!

Some beautiful artwork appeared on our school playground recently, courtesy of the artists in Mighty Oaks.

Mighty Oaks at the Natural History Museum

Mighty Oaks class visited the Natural History Museum in London this week.  

For part of the day they became palaeontologists, and had to use different sources to identify which fossils were real, and then work out which types of fossils they had.

They also took part in a DSI (Dinosaur Scene Investigation) workshop, in which they had to work out which type of dinosaur had been excavated.

The children also had lots of time to explore the Museum as a whole.

Mud, glorious mud!

Our Year 6 children loved leaping into and rolling in the mud today.  Thank goodness for spare clothes!

Freezing frosty Forest School!

Photos of our Forest School pupils braving the cold today.  Amongst other things, they spent time admiring the patterns in the ice and some of the children made their own whistles.

Year 6 Forest School

Our Year 6 children went on their first Forest School session of the term on Wednesday.  The cold weather didn’t seem to put them off!
