    The Year 1 children have been visiting North Herts College over the passed few weeks to learn about plants. They enjoyed planting seedlings and creating a potato head to grow cress in. They listened to stories and got to taste different foods that the college students had grown! What a treat!

  • Campfire!

    Published 14/09/19, by Andy Mari

    On Wednesday, Year 1 went out and learnt how to light a fire. The children were given a safety talk about how campers might prepare to build a fire, the equipment they would need to help them do this and then they were then showed how to light one. We then cooked marshmallows on the fire and enjoyed some hot chocolate made by Mr Steedman. We are now looking forward to pitching tets with the children next week!

    Published 12/09/19, by Andy Mari

    Welcome to all the parents of Elm class, to our first school blog of the new school year. The children have done remarkably well settling in to their new environment and new routines.

  • Shiver me timbers!

    Published 24/04/19, by Jenny Townely

    Oh my goodness! We came into school today to find that a pirate had left his locked treasure chest in our class. We had to follow the clues by working out the riddles which finally led us to the key.

    When we opened up the chest it was filled with gleaming shiny coins. What an exciting way to start our new topic!

  • Snow day!!

    Published 01/02/19, by Jenny Townely

    Wow! We woke up on the  1st of February to snow! 

    This was perfect for our science topic which is 'Winter'.

    We wrapped up warm and put on our wellies and went off to explore...

    We were so lucky to find different tracks in the snow and tried to guess which animals would have made them. We also saw a big magpie nest and watched the bird fly to and fro collecting things to make his nest warmer.

    What an exciting day!!

  • Alien arrival?

    Published 14/01/19, by Jenny Townely

    What on Earth has happened here?

    On our first day back to school we were absolutely amazed to find a space craft had crashed into our outside area! There was green slime all over the playground, nuts and bolts scattered, and PANTS hanging from the tree.

    We went to investigate the evidence and found a letter that had been written by an alien! 

    What a shocking start to the term... hopefully if we learn enough about Space and the planets, the alien will find his way back home again!
