Welcome back after a fantastic Christmas break. We hope you are ready to come back to an exciting half term -kick starting with ‘What the Romans did for us.’
What an amazing first week back. Year 3 and 4 have been busy investigating Roman innovations and as usual it’s been a creative time for all.
Huddled around the fire, eating marshmallows on a dark December wet and windy night. The last adventure group of the year fend off the driving rain to share their stories with each other. January will see a new set of adventures setting out on a new quest on their own deserted island.
The dark nights drawing in doesn’t damper the excitement for the latest set of winter adventures as they start their four weeks on an imaginary deserted island. With the few things they could find on the island the children were able to set up a camp to provide a shelter and a base for the next three weeks.
Final meeting around the camp fire as the latest adventures indulge in a feast of toasted marshmallows. With the campsite now closed down for the winter future adventures will meet in a new venue, deep in the woods. But don’t worry we will still be sharing our tales and experiences around the camp fire. Some things will never change.
The long and winding road starts to make sense as twelve new class gardens start to take shape over the summer holidays ready for the new school year in September. Each class from year one upwards will have the opportunity to experience the fun and wonder of designing, planning, planting and maintaining their own piece of the school grounds.
The individual gardens sit along side the Eyam road path between the present allotment and the new year six orchard, giving parents and carers an opportunity to see at first hand what the children can achieve with a little bit of help and heaps of imagination.
