VAUXHALL CITY FARM

Ms. Codd writes……

On Tuesday, Jupiter and Saturn visited Vauxhall City Farm. Everyone enjoyed the 'Meet the Animals' session, led by Alice, from the farm's learning team. They stroked a rabbit, duck and other small animals.

Our other led session, 'Minibeasts' included pond dipping and searching for minibeasts under logs and rocks: children found and identified newts, snails, beetles, spiders, worms and other creatures! Everyone also had the chance to 'Feed the Animals' - goats, alpaca and sheep - with grass nuts, which some children were particularly good. Ibrahim said he was, "very brave!". The weather was perfect, so we got to sit in the nearby park for lunch in the sun. The visit will help everyone with their learning in Art and Science in school.

 

Neptune will be visiting the farm on Tuesday 5 June and Mars on Tuesday 26 June.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SAILING DAY

On Friday Jupiter and Mars went sailing. We had Students showing great team work on Bell Boats, students and staff on Sailing boats and some fantastic kayaking! It was a fun day for all and the BBQ was lovely, thanks to Mrs J and Mrs Routley. Bravery award goes to Feyona and Elsharief who were the only students to fall in!

 

Ibrahim said: "It was a very very fun day! Thank you" 

 

 

 

GAMBADOS

On Thursday Neptune class went to Gambardos. We had a wonderful time scrambling and playing in the soft play. Afterwards, we had a picnic in the sunshine and ice lollies as a special treat. All students were so well behaved that we even had parents at the soft play telling us how impressed they were!

Well Done Neptune!!
