'Bringing Learning Alive'

Our vision statement is to Bring Learning Alive and blogging encapsulates our aim to make learning exciting, up to date and fun.

This counter only counts visitors once so that we see the actual number of visitors to our page.

Our blog was set up, primarily, for children in school to see what others were up to when off-site. However, after only a few weeks of actually getting pictures on the site the possibilities for inspiring learning are becoming apparent.
We'd already established links with two schools in France but we are now exploring the potential of mutual blogs so that our children can comment and interact with international partners. We're receiving pictures from the arctic from one of our parents and the level of interest in geography is rising withouteven trying. The potential is immense.
It might sound like it but we're not anoraks!
and, at the same time, a fantastic educational opportunity.

The Archers

(viewed 2424 times)
Having a great time at Laches Wood. Unfortunately we weren't told we had to
shoot our own dinner if we wanted anything to eat. The good news is that the
teachers tasted wonderful!

If you go down to the woods today...

...you won't see us because we've made a hide!

We collected branches and leaves etc. from the ground up in the Spinney and
weaved them through old footy nets. The nets have been strung acrtoss the
Trim Trail so we can hide behind them later this month when we take part in
the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch.

Also, on our travels, we found some razor strop fungus. This only grows on
Silver Birch trees and is so named because men used to use it as a strop to
sharpen their razors before Gillette, Wilkinson's Sword and even Bic got a
hold on the market with disposables!

Big Garden Birdwatch

(viewed 1112 times)
Year 5 and 6 classes are incorporating the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch into
their learning this term. With only a handful a pupils being sent to school
during the 'snow and ice' phase of the year we're making the most of
updating displays and fitting in extra activities. This young chap's created
a House Sparrow and what a superb creation is it. Well done!

As you might have guessed - he loves posing for a picture!

Our school football team's paid millions to an Icelandic Football Club for a
new Goalie. Hope he's a good investment.

What a gruesome group. A well attended and well behaved group of children in
some fantastic costumes - frightened the life out of us!

Graffiti Art

A project to brighten up the 'Quiet Zone'; children in Years 5 & 6 worked
with a Graffiti Artist to create a superb piece of art. Well done - I'm
really impressed. More information to follow on the school's website.
