Year 3’s day trip to Weston-super-Mare

On Friday 11th May, Year 3 spent a fun and informative day in Weston-super-Mare. The children found out about the development of Weston-Super-Mare from its early beginnings as an Iron Age settlement, through to its present day function as a seaside resort. Geography fieldwork on the sea-front, a Discovery Quiz, topped off with a visit to SeaQuarium made for an exciting day.

Year 8 – At the Races

On 10th May, Year 8 visited Worcester Race Course as part of a cross curricular day. The pupils had the opportunity to visit the stables and the weighing room, as well as take a look at the course and jumps. Maths and Science skills were put to the test with the formulation of calorie controlled diets for the jockeys and calculation of safety distances for the parade ring.

PGL Rocks!

Year 4 pupils accompanied by Miss Humphrey, Miss Howarth and Mr Brinkley spent an amazing three days on their PGL residential trip (which they were delighted to discover has the nickname Parents Get Lost) at Hillcrest, near Ross on Wye in Herefordshire. The children behaved beautifully and learnt lots about how to develop their skills and work well as a team.
Most importantly, they all had lots of fun!
