St Lawrence Whole School Fieldtrip

On Thursday last week, the whole school went on a local fieldtrip, arranged by Mrs Mountcastle, our geography lead. We walked 4 miles around the locality, looking at farms, wildlife and examples of sustainability.

Children in Reception and Years 1 & 2 used a photograph map to find their way along the route, and the children from Years 3- 6 used OS maps.

Back at school, Reception made flatbread with some wild garlic we had collected, Class 2 carried on learning about native and local plants, Class 3 wrote about their adventure, and Class 4 made their own maps of the journey.

We were very proud of all the children, and look forward to the next fieldtrip.

Chinese Dragon Dance

This week, we had a visit from a Chinese dancer who showed us to do a traditional dragon dance!

We had a brilliant time and really liked the colours and patterns. Ask us to tell you all about it!

Can you find out why dragon dances are so popular or why the colour red is important in China?

Twinkly Nativity

Well done to all of the children in Classes 1 and 2 on their very successful nativity! We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
