Today year 3 enjoyed a wonderful day out to Tring Natural History Museum. We looked closely at lots of different animal skulls to investigate what animal the skull might belong to. We used our knowledge of the different teeth types to help our investigation. We also roamed through all of the museum’s exhibits, looking closely at the different animals on display. We even got the chance to dress up as some of our favourite animals.
A massive thank you to all of the parent helpers who joined us and made the trip possible. We’re already looking forward to our next adventure.
The children were fascinated to see the vast variety of animals at the museum. We had a great handling session of different skulls. We looked closely at the teeth to give us clues as to which mammal each belonged to. We had some great guesses.
We found animals from different biomes. There were also animals which sadly are now extinct, the great sloth bear and the dodo.
A big thank you to our parent helpers who I think enjoyed it as much as the children.
I know that many of the children would love to return so do pop along and learn even more.
Well done Larch you were a pleasure to take out.
A tiring day for some!
Today Juniper class took part in a range of activities as part of our work for anti-bullying day. In one such activity we investigated the power of our words. We passed around an apple and said horrible and mean things to it. We then passed around a second apple and gave the apple lots of compliments. Afterwards, we cut open both apples to discover the impact that our nasty words can have. We were reminded that although the impact of mean words may not always be visible on the outside, they make a difference on the inside.
We also enjoyed wearing odd socks to school to show our support for anti-bullying day.
It’s been a busy week in Oak class this week! Today we focused on anti bullying and got the children involved in lots of different activities to remind them how important it is to be kind and respectful to each other.
The children created t-shirts, deciphered coded messages and created a word bank of how they would like to be described to others. We had a great day in year 4 and to top it off we ended the day with cake! Here are some lovely Tanners Woods cakes that got donated this morning….. they were delicious!
Thank you to everyone that donated and bought cakes today, it is much appreciated!
This week Juniper class read the story of The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers. As a class we discussed the meaning of the story and then thought specifically about the different emotions which were being portrayed. We then related these to times when we may have felt these feelings in our own lives.
Today, we have welcomed Mrs Bastable into Pine class to teach us about The Ten Commandments. We now understand what each one is for and how they can influence Jewish and Christian peoples lives. We created a poster to encourage someone to obey a rule.
In 4th place Wilson… Joint 2nd place Morpurgo and Fine….So in 1st place…Blake. Well done to all who took place.

On Tuesday 12th October, a team of Y6 boys went to Abbots Langley school to play a football match against Abbots Langley and Divine Saviour. They worked really well as a team and won against Divine Saviour 2-1 and at the last minute drew against Abbots Langley 2-2. Well done team! We look forward to playing St.Paul’s in November – we aim to win!
