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.

World Book Day Door Design

The children in Class 3 held a competition to see who could come up with the best design for their classroom door- the chosen design was by Soraya, and I’m sure you’ll agree it was a great choice.

Chinese Dragon Dance

This week we had a visit from a Chinese dragon dance expert who taught us how to perform this popular dance. We really enjoyed being the front of the dragon, and making the body twist and turn in time to the beat.

Can you find out more about dragon dances, and why the colour red is so popular?
