Trips and extra-curricular activities

Year 1

Bedfont Lakes:
Year 1 visited Bedfont Lakes, in line with their Enchanted Woodland topic. The children too part in many activities including an arts and crafts scavenger hunt, den and campfire building, a nature detective walk and animal handling. They stroked or held many creatures including a bearded dragon, African giant snail and a fluffy rabbit.

Year 2

Roald Dahl Day:
Year 2 had an amazing day on Monday celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday. Our classrooms were turned into Willy Wonka’s laboratory. We made some chocolatey treats and some fascinating lava lamps…some of these even turned into lava explosions (something the teachers were not quite expecting!) They then created Revolting Recipes for George’s Marvellous Medicine, where they enjoyed exploring different textures whilst getting rather mucky!

All the children looked fantastic in their costumes, which really helped them get into character during our workshop. The children were transformed into one of Roald Dahl’s characters and got to explore ‘Dream Country’. They wowed us with their creativity and acting skills. 

Windsor Castle:
Year 2 went on a trip to Windsor Castle. This half term, the children will be learning about ‘Towers, Turrets and Tunnels’ as part of their topic work and they had a great time seeing real life examples of royal buildings and learning about different castles. They had a workshop about the history of castles and even got to dress in armour and re-enact a battle.

Local Area Walk:
For the Year 2 topic ‘Street Detectives’ the children went on a walk around the local area looking at the different types of houses. The children use maps to navigate around the area looking at the different features.
