GREAT drawing

The children decided they would like to draw for the afternoon for their GREAT' treat. A very relaxing, co-operative and mindful afternoon was had by all.

It was very enjoyable and a nice calming lesson. Kai

I loved it, it was amazing. Lissy

It was really fun, I like drawing. Luke


As part of our topic 'Frozen Kingdom' we went to a very cold, chilly Irchester Country Park to learn about: den building, orienteering and a range of team building skills.

It was an amazing day, the children worked collaboratively in small groups and teams to locate and gather information for orienteering. Lots of perseverance was required and demonstrated when they had to create and build dens!

Bear Grylls watch out!


Brrrrr it's cold!


As part of our 'wow' starter Mr Homan came to talk to us about all the frozen places he has visited; including Greenland, Iceland, Canada and Everest just to name a few. He explained about how he had to travel by foot, bus, plane, helicopter and stayed in a variety of huts, tents and shacks. It was fascinating to hear a real life explorer!

It was good having someone come in to tell us about what it's actually like in the Artic. Charlotte

I like the fact he came in to tell us the journey he had and how he did it. It makes you think about following your dreams and you can do it. Lucy

Today we braved the cold outside...without coats! We wanted to think about how the cold feels when we stand still and when we move around. Then we had water poured over one of our hands to see if that made a difference.
Lots of children wanted to go back inside, so they appreciated the warmth as it was very cold and windy.
