Activities and School Trips
Queenswood Country Park and OK Diner trip - class 6
On Thursday 7th September class 6 went to Queenswood Country Park and OK Diner. This links to their topic on the USA. They found the Californian Redwood trees, measured them and did some tree hugging. At the OK Diner the children completed a quiz and feasted on milkshakes and ice cream. Sounds like a great trip!
It was really good, I really enjoyed stuffing my face with milkshakes. It was delicious and the Redwood trees were humongous.

I loved hugging the tree. They were gigantic. The diner had cool signs on the walls. They were like number plates and route signs. I had a double chocolate chip milkshake. It was tasty.

MacMillan Coffee morning
Mrs Gething and year 6 organised a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September to raise money for the Macmillan charity that helps people with cancer. It was a wonderful turn out and great to see so many parents/carers and other members of the community there. A huge amount of cakes were donated and we raised £284.04, which is a fantastic amount. Thank you to all those who attended, donated money and cakes and especially to Mrs Gething and year 6 for organising this hugely successful event.
Bristol Zoo trip - classes 1 and 3
On Monday 16th October classes 1 and 3 went on a trip to Bristol Zoo. They had an African Animal Experience that involved the children learning about different animals that live in Africa. They even got to hold and stroke mealworms, a boa constrictor snake and a rat. Children also took part in activities where they had to match the animal with their skin, foot prints, bones and horns. Following this, the children explored the zoo where they saw lions, penguins, sea lions, monkeys, meerkats, butterflies, bugs, giant tortoises and many other zoo animals. They all had a super day out.
I had a good time. I liked the bats. I liked the two covered up sleeping.
