This week

Elders had a lovely ‘last day’ (for some of the class). They hung their memories on their apple tree, made ‘leavers’ video clips and played the pirate game before sharing a barbecue. A lovely final day for a lovely group of children.

Elder class enjoyed their forest school session with Mrs Millyard. There were so many fun and exciting activities to do.

Elder class had a fabulous morning with Rojo art making memory books. These involved printing, origami and lots of other skills. The class were all motivated and showed great cooperation particularly with the printing.

Elder class enjoyed a delicious ‘leavers’ lunch’ in Elder classroom. They chose the menu of pizza, wraps, spring rolls, sausages and sausage rolls with brownies and donuts (with ice cream) for dessert.

Elder class have been busy preparing for their performance on Friday. Your singing is fabulous and you will be brilliant.

We have been learning about plastic pollution. Elders wrote some poems about the problem and mounted them on pictures depicting the problem.

In science Elder class learnt about chromatography. They tested three different black pens and were amazed at the results.

Health and fitness week:

Thursday: The busiest day yet! Elder class did yoga, badminton’, basketball, kickboxing, circuits, golf and speed stacking.

Wednesday: Elder class took part in the whole school sponsored walk this morning. There were some fantastic costumes on show. Then we had a KS2 sports day practice – we did sprint, egg and spoon and skipping races and threw the javelins. After lunch, we had football with Josh. Another busy day!

Tuesday: Elder class started the day with a dance session and then enjoyed tennis before lunch. In the afternoon, they played a rounders match against Willow class.

Monday: Elder class enjoyed morning Wake and Shake followed by preparing their picnic meal. They researched how food and exercise keep your body healthy. Elder class then did some team building games with Willow class. The afternoon involved whole school picnic, some class ball games, parachute activities and finally while school stick in the mud!

Elder class enjoyed their final visit to Golden Wood where they revisited all the areas they have worked on over their years at All Saints’. The maze was popular! The class all enjoyed their picnic lunches and their scavenger hunt. A massive thank you to Elizabeth for all the time she has spent with us over the years.

Elder class had a theatre workshop session based on Herbert’s Horrors today. They focussed on feelings and how feelings were portrayed in the performance.

It was lovely to see Elder class reading outside in the sunshine with Acorn and Oak classes on Friday afternoon. Such lovely relationships were evident.


Elder class watched a pirate performance from the Theatre Royal.

Here are a few of the 800+ photos we took at Kingswood. A great time was had by all. Special thanks to Mr Noonan and Mr Seggie for coming along with us.

What a fabulous day Elder class had at Shimpling Park Farm. They rode in the trailer, visited the grain store, calculated how much to charge per hour as a tractor driver with their own tractor, made bootjacks, watched lorries loading up oats and even saw inside the cab of a lorry bound for Carlisle before they went on a beautiful sensory walk. Good times!

Elder class has lots of fun during French morning. They completed a quiz, wrote a postcard in French and did a scavenger hunt. Great motivation and cooperation!
