“…Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education…”
What a day we had yesterday celebrating our year 6’s final Sport’s Day at Lawford Mead!
The year 5 & 6 competed in their house teams: Badgers, Hedgehogs, Squirrels and Foxes, but it was the Badgers who took the title of ‘winners’ with the most amount of points.
An extra shout-out goes to Alex White & Holly Sprules, who are now both officially the undefeated champions in the sprints from Nursery – Year 6.
Well done to all who took part and a huge thank you to all the family and friends that came to watch!
Owen, Dylan, Jake C and Jack H are going to be selling cakes on Tuesday 5th and Friday 8th July at break time.

We are looking forward to seeing you there! 😀 😀 😀 😀
On Monday 20th Year 6 were lucky enough to have a visit from Miss Lambert’s father and brothers, who brought in lots of REAL artefacts from WW2. The children were then given a short speech about WW2, focusing on ‘The Home Guard’ and had a chance to ask questions about and see real replicas. From gas masks to fragments of bombs, the pupils were thoroughly engrossed and engaged by the experience!
A huge thank you to Miss Lambert and her family members for organising the visit 🙂
Whilst the Grangewaters Residential has been going on, the remainder of Year 5&6 have had a great week with a variety of fun activities.
From Baking, Tourism Guides and Muddy Adventures, to a visit to Jamie’s Oliver’s Trattoria – we really have had a fun-filled week!
We are looking forward to hosting our year 1 Mini-Olympics this afternoon!
Year 6 have waited patiently all year for their Muddy Adventures sessions! Here are some pictures from their first session!
