Remembrance

On Monday the 11th November our children stopped their usual school day and went over to the village war memorial. Gavin Walter, from Ashdon Baptist Church, led us, and members of the local community that had joined us, in remembering the sacrifices that so many men and women had given during both the first and […]

The Romans are coming!

This week Class 3 had a very special day when a Roman (Mark from Portals to the Past) came to visit us. They enjoyed a wide range of ‘Roman’ activities throughout the day, from handling everyday objects used by a Roman soldier, playing Roman board games and a magnificent weapons display, culminating in a battle […]

We then took a coach to the Aylmerton outdoor centre where the children became pirates for the afternoon. They had a variety of activities where they had […]
