Perfect Potter World!
It was an exciting day for lots of children in Year Six today as they ventured out of school to take part in a residential trip to Stratford Upon Avon.The day started with the children travelling to The World of Harry Potter where the children were treated to a behind the scenes experience of the famous films. The children saw the sets up close, were amazed by an array of special effects and costumes and even had a go at flying! Some children treated themselves to butterbeers whilst others enjoyed exploring the Knight bus and the Hogwarts Express. It was a fantastic start to the trip which everyone enjoyed.Later in the day the children spent time at the Stratford youth Hostel where they enjoyed a fabulous dinner before spending time playing games on the grass and even socialising with some Spanish primary aged children who were visiting the centre. After dinner it was back to the hotel where the children explored their rooms before settling down for the night, ready for another jam packed day in the morning.Meanwhile, back in school, the children in the Foundation Stage enjoyed a trip of their own as each class visited the Forum library. The children took part in a word and book hunt as a way of exploring the library, found out how a library works and enjoyed a story session with Toby who works there. Thanks Toby for having us.
The Rover Returns!
It was an adventurous start to the week as the children in all key stages were joined in assembly by our former Deputy Headteacher, the lovely Miss Ellacott, who came to tell them all about her recent challenge to follow the Inca trail and climb Machu Picchu! Miss Ellacott told the children all about her adventure in Peru, the challenges she faced, and how she had to stay determined to complete the trail which saw her climb 4200 metres to the top! The children were astounded by her challenge and it was lovely to see her back in school. Thanks Miss Ellacott for sharing the first stage of your exciting retirement plans with us.Later, out on the field, the children in Aspen enjoyed a fun PE lesson with Mrs Crouch where they developed their jumping skills whilst, also on the field, Mr Smith played rounders with the children in Sycamore. Meanwhile, inside, the children in Hawks were learning about weather and climate in different regions. They used maps to identify where the climates were on the globe.Downstairs, the children in the Foundation Stage wrote lists and stories about animals whilst Mr B enjoyed listening to some more fantastic readers; today from Owls. He was very impressed by the progress they had made. Well done children!

In the afternoon the fun continued as the children were treated to anything they wanted from an ice cream van on the playground and the down time continued.
