KS2 Orienteering Day, November 2017

The KS2 children had a very active day learning lots of orienteering skills at school with Mr Flint, and then trying them out at Haldon Forest.  They worked in small teams racing against against one another other and used maps to find the twelve markers hanging from branches, fences and seats.  The winning team consisted of three Year 3 boys - well done to them.  It was a fantastic day full of activity and fun.

Year 2 Camp

On Friday night some of the Year Two children joined children from across the federation for a Y2 sleepover.  The children had the opportunity to learn a variety of circus skills from silt walking to juggling to plate spinning!  Afterwards the children watched a circus performance and a Evie and Inigo were even asked to join in!  Then the children had a delicious BBQ supper before watching a film in the hall and eventually getting some sleep.  The children had a fantastic time and really enjoyed making friends with children in other schools.
