Ducklings in the classroom - soon!
Today we welcomed a clutch of duck eggs to our reception class. They are expected to hatch on Thursday but some are showing signs that they may arrive earlier! The ducklings will stay in school for up to 2 weeks. Many thanks to Mr Gregory and Highmead Farm for this experience.

Year 4 visit the Houses of Parliament
Children in Year 4 enjoyed a wonderful day out in London on Friday 17th April. After a walk down Whitehall to see 10 Downing Street and the Cenotaph, they had guided tours of the Houses of Parliament. In the afternoon they discovered the delights of the Natural History Museum. A selection of photographs is available on the Year 4 page.
Year 4 presentations start with Isabella on 14th April.
Isabella gave her Year 4 presentation on the Tetrathlon. This includes swimming as far as you can in two minutes, a 1000m run, a cross-country obstacle course on horse back and a four second shooting task. We all learnt so much. The photographs were especially impressive.
