Our Learning Environment

The Wizard of Oz

All the children worked so hard on our Christmas play. Many of the children had lots of lines to learn, which they often practised during their lunchtimes with Mrs Cooper. This was a huge commitment for them which certainly paid off with their excellent performance. We are so proud of them!

Hazard Alley

Year 4 had a fantastic trip to Hazard Alley at The Safety Centre. They learnt how to keep themselves safe in a variety of situations such as road safety,  fire safety,  not being swayed by peer pressure to commit crimes, what hazards are in our homes and keeping safe online.  Knowing how to keep themselves safe whilst helping others in an emergency was also a key part of the day.  They learnt which important information is needed to in order to make a successful 999 call and then practised how to make an emergency call using both a telephone box and mobile phone.  Some first aid was also taught when they learnt how to put an unconscious person into the recovery position before seeking help. The children were all engaged and loved learning these life skills. 


In DT,  we designed and made nightlights which linked to out Science topic on electricity.
