Nursery Farm Trip
The nursery children enjoyed a wonderful visit to the local Surrey Docks Farm. We saw baby animals which reminded us of all the growth we see around spring time. We were able to feed some of the animals too. Thank you to the parents who helped out. It was great for the children to be able to see these animals close up in our local area.
Year 5 are learning to be cryptographers this term in ICT! The students will be exploring different codes throughout the ages, from semaphore to modern password encryption. After studying the history of Morse as a binary code children were split into groups to try to send/decode messages from allies on the far side of the classroom.
The whole school enjoyed having christmas dinner with their handmade hats on. The children loved the different toys and jokes they received in the christmas crackers and singing along to christmas songs!

Florence Nightingale Museum
After learning about the Crimean War Year 1 visited the Florence Nightingale Museum where they learnt about Florence Nightingale's life and how she became known as 'The Lady with the Lamp'.

They also learnt how to dress as a nurse and soldier in the Crimean War.
