EYFS Trip - West Lodge Farm

On Tuesday, the Romans and Vikings had a very wet but very enjoyable trip to West Lodge Farm.

We all had a turn at bottle feeding baby lambs. We also enjoyed a bumpy ride on a tractor around the farm and had fun stroking the sheep and the goats.

All the children were very well behaved and staff at the farm commented on how happy and well behaved the children were inspite of the weather.

Well done EYFS!

"I loved feeing the lambs they were so hungry." Sophie

" The goat liked me stroking it's head." Freddie.

Thank you to all parents/carers/grandparents who accompanied us.


Year 1 Trip - Holdenby House

Two trips with two very different experiences due to weather. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed the visit and they discovered new creatures, created natural art and developed their understanding of habitats and trees.

"When I get older, maybe 15, I want to be a scientist and find out about pond and sea creatures." Evie


Year 4 Creative Writing Workshops -  University of Northampton

On Tuesday 6th June the Year 4 children went on a trip to the University of Northampton for a creative writing day. There were sessions taken by authors which were really exciting especially Marcus Alexander. The children then also took part in smaller workshop sessions where they had the chance to use their imaginations in different ways including drama. All the children had a great day and lots of fun whilst learning. A big thank you to the University for putting on a fantastic day for the children.
