Class 3 Rookery Farm Trip

Our Class 3 children had a lovely day last Friday on their first ever school trip to Rookery Farm, meeting and petting the animals and enjoying themselves pretending to drive tractors. After a picnic lunch in the barn they had a wonderful time making full use of the bouncy castles and slides.

Weymouth 2018

The 8s and 9s enjoyed a fantastic few days away in Weymouth where the sun shone down on us. Sand World and the Sea Life Centre were
our first ports of call where the children enjoyed learning how to make sand sculptures and got to look at the wide variety of underwater animals!

We were even lucky enough to walk along the promenade and have a great time enjoying the sandy beach. The children challenged themselves at
the PGL centre and conquered some fears. They zipped down the zipwire; traipsed through the tunnel trail and built sea monsters on the beach
to name but a few activities…

Lots of new found friendships were developed and memories made on this wonderful Weymouth trip!

Year 2 Trip to Cadbury World

The children in Year 2 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Cadbury World in May. They learned about the journey of chocolate – from bean to bar – and saw several of the processes used in the making of Cadbury chocolate bars.

They particularly enjoyed writing their names with melted chocolate, learning how to temper chocolate and of course the taste tests!

Class 4 Trip to Pizza Hut

Earlier in May Class 4 had a lovely trip to Pizza Hut to experience first hand the joys of making their own pizza! The children had fun learning about pizza cookery and choosing their own toppings, plus of course polishing off the results for lunch.

During the visit the children took part in a workshop called ‘Fur, Feathers and Scales’, which helped them to learn about some of the different animal groups and how to recognise them, based on their features.  They met an African Pygmy Hedgehog called Harry, a Conure Parrot called Alfie and a Corn Snake called Bo, which they were allowed to hold.  They saw many exciting animals including Siberian tigers, cheetahs, Canadian lynx, hooded vultures, meerkats, a variety of lemurs, gibbons, several different owls and an anteater.

It was a fantastic and informative day!

Class 8 Trip to Howe Park Woods

The purpose of the trip was for the children to work together to improve their team building skills and there was certainly plenty of opportunity for that!IMG_7315 IMG_7306

They split into groups; water was filtered, dens were built, fires were lit and they played team games.

They had to work together to complete tasks and once those challenges were met, the numbers for a secret code for a treasure chest were earned!

It was muddy, wet and squelchy ……and a great day was had by all!

During their trip to Waddesdon Manor in December, the Reception Year
children spent some time making their own Christmas decoration and learning how to decorate and assemble it.

They also visited the house itself and had great fun finding the numbered
baubles in each room. They enjoyed looking at all the spectacularly
decorated rooms, particularly enjoying the bathroom with the seal in the
bath tub!

Year 1 Visit to St Mary’s Church, Whaddon

IMG_5971 IMG_5966 IMG_5965

In January 2018  Year 1 pupils enjoyed a very informative visit to St. Mary’s Church in Whaddon. They learned how Christians use the building for their faith, as well as developing their knowledge about local historical places. The children took part in a hunt for unusual artefacts, and then returned to observe, draw and colour their most interesting ‘finds.’ They represented MKPS so well that the churchwarden has already invited them back again!

Chinese Dance Workshop for Year 1 December 2017

IMG_5860 IMG_5857 IMG_5855Year 1 enjoyed learning the movement and steps for the Chinese Umbrella Dance. They had to take extra care as these props were made out of delicate rice paper; however, no one tried to taste them!
