Our local Librarian needed our help.

She wanted us to make some Christmas decorations, which would go on the front window of the library.

We were definitely keen to help her out.

Mrs Marriott went to have a look at the window once it had been decorated. It looks great, and we were happy to help out.

Robins and Chaffinches step back in time to visit Warwick Castle

2018-11-06 19:27:26 j-forbes

What a super way to bring our learning to life! Robins and Chaffinches had an amazing day visiting Warwick Castle. We were met by a guide who took us to different parts of the castle and shared lots of information with us. The guides were amazed by how much knowledge the children had, they also commented on their super behaviour too. Whilst we were there we also watched a magnificent birds of prey display, climbed the original Motte to admire the views of the Warwickshire countryside and listened to an interesting talk by a skilful bowman. As always however, a popular part of the day was lunchtime!
The children were super ambassadors for our school throughout the whole day. Well done Robins and Chaffinches!

A long, long time ago...

2018-09-11 20:08:23 j-forbes

Wow, wow, wow! What a great start to our new topic. Robins and Chaffinches launched their new topic by taking part in a fantastic day of activities, which were all linked to our learning about Castles and life in a castle.

The children made knight’s helmets for their role play areas, as well as torches to light up the classroom. They also decorated some goblets and enjoyed baking crown biscuits which were delicious. They even practised their archery skills outside and took part in drama activities, using their imagination to make up stories about princes, princesses, dragons and knights.

The children were fantastic, they gave 100% to each and every task and showed lots of enthusiasm for the topic. We are looking forward to learning lots more about life a long, long time ago.

Dipping Our Toes into Anston’s Ancient Past

2018-07-11 16:24:58 jtaylor

Robins and Chaffinches classes ventured out to explore Old Anston and to discover all about life in our village over 300 years ago! We were joined by Dr Bob Gellatly, our resident expert on all aspects of Anston’s history, who told us all about the village’s interesting past. We explored Greenlands Park and found out that it was originally a quarry whose limestone was used to rebuild the Houses of Parliament after a fire. We visited Anston Hall and discovered that the row of shops, known locally as ‘The Ponds’, was originally a large farmhouse, which belonged to Squire Wright, who lived in the Hall.

We were interested to see all the different houses on The Green and then we dropped down to explore ‘The Wells’, which provided fresh water for the village. Finally, we walked to Ryton Road to see how much it had changed in 300 years. We had a very memorable, fascinating day and the children were, once more, excellent ambassadors for our school.
