Wales Update Number 1!

Hello from sunny Wales!

Apologies to all for the late update, the signal appears to be treacherous out there today, so staff have struggled to email through – let us hope it is only

Flag of Wales

a brief glitch!

The children have arrived safely in the beauty of the Welsh countryside. Settling in activities including kit issuing, getting to know the site and then an adventurous walk around the site.

After a restful night’s sleep and settling into their accomodation, the children ate a hearty breakfast before setting off on their first adventure. This morning, children and staff have embarked on a mountain walk (which is as tricky and arduous as it is immensely rewarding and fun too!) while other groups are exploring the local caves and the surrounding waterfall.

Keep an eye out for future updates, once we receive more information from the group too!

Goodbye for now, from all in Wales!

Starfish and Seahorse classes told the school about their work on looking after the duck eggs, as well as their visit to the local farm with Bedenham school too. They also presented their work on SuperPotato – showing us a range of their work and drawings. They explained that the evil pea had stolen their class teddy, which the children then had to use clues to save him!

They also showed us a selection of their superhero outfits, which the Starfish and Seahorses have been wearing in lessons too! They also performed a great song by the “Let’s Go Heroes” which the children sang along to as well.

A brilliant assembly, where children were very brave to speak to the whole school (and their parents) in a very busy school hall. Well done!

Year R children received celebration praise for their kind work with others, not giving up and choosing sensible learning along the way!
