  • Shambo the Bull

    March 8, 2019

    Last Friday, Class VW conducted a debate about Shambo the bull.  In 2007, Shambo was issued with a slaughter notice due to being infected with TB. The Hindu monks at Skanda Vale, Wales wanted to care for him until he died rather than have him slaughtered; they started a petition and even went to court.  Ultimately, Shambo was removed from the temple and slaughtered in line with disease prevention strategies.   The Class got into small groups and represented different organisations including DEFRA, The Welsh Assembly, The Hindu Forum of Britain, vets, etc. They researched the group they were representing and…

  • Open the book

    March 8, 2019

    'Open the book' assembly told the miracle of Jesus meeting Peter the fisherman.    We heard the story of how Peter the fisherman set sail overnight and caught nothing after hours and hours of trying to catch some fish.  Yet, after Jesus had spoken to him and told him to try again, he caught an abundance of fish. The fishermen were astonished by the miracle and understood it was a sign that the presence of God was around.  This was the first step in understanding who Jesus was.  Jesus called all the fishermen to leave everything and become his disciples as fishers…

    WEEK 1 A lovely busy morning spent at Robin Wood. The children were introduced to the Forest School code of conduct before playing a game of 1,2,3 Where are you? They found some good places to hide around the wood. We discovered some camouflaged elf hair which led us to a letter from Willow the woodland elf asking us to help find his lost woodland friends. He very kindly left us a special treat of hot chocolate and biscuits to enjoy at snack time. The children spent the rest of the morning enjoying freeplay and exploring the woodland. We finished the morning…

    WEEK 6 Class CH enjoyed a lovely last session at Robbin Wood, the sun was shining and was perfect for a campfire. We started by introducing the fire triangle and the children helped to identify what was needed to light a fire, fuel, heat and oxygen. We talked about safety, as the fire was set ready for snack.   The children went and explored the woodland, accessing resources and using their imagination to create  stories using the woodland animals, while others went on a worm hunt. A wonderful home for the woodland friends. Lots of worms were found today.…

  • London Trip - Year 6

    February 15, 2019

    Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic day in London on Wednesday, visiting Westminster Abbey and The Houses of Parliament.   First they explored the treasures, tombs and memorials in the Abbey and then they were lucky enough to watch part of  a live debate in the House of Commons. This enabled them to make their own debates  about  smoking and homework  in the Workshops very realistic.   The day ended with the much anticipated visit to the service station for tea on the way home.  It was agreed that everyone had all learned a great deal and been inspired by some amazing experiences.    A couple of images from…

  • 'Open the book'

    February 13, 2019

    Open the book shared the story of Jesus being baptised. The story was acted out with John wanting to live a very simple life.  Many people came to be baptised and follow in John's steps living a simple life. He sometimes even ate locusts or slept outside under the stars.   Jesus came to be baptised.  We heard how, as soon as Jesus was baptised, the sky opened up and the Holy Spirit came like a beautiful white dove, and landed right on Jesus shoulder.  Then a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, I love him and I am pleased…

  • Shiver me timbers! There’s no scurvy in Class LH!!

    February 13, 2019

    What would you eat if you were marooned on an island?   We discussed the possibilities of going fishing, hunting for mammals and birds and then we thought about the vegetation and plants and what we might find that we could eat.  We discussed how, if pirates didn’t eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, they often suffered from scurvy.  We all decided it would be better to eat fruit!!  We also talked about how we would catch the animals using natural materials such as sharpened sticks, bones from dead animals, beaks to act as a scoop and sharp…

    Cal Fell gave an inspiring and informative assembly about violins and violas.  Cal talked about how violins made the sound and shared with the children some homemade violins using different sizes of elastic bands and cereal boxes to demonstrate the length and width of the strings.  She then showed us these differences on the viola and the violin.   Two children held a piece of string taught and Cal plucked it to show how the sound was created.  She also shared how horse-tail hair was used for the bow. Cal and four children shared different playing techniques on their violins such as the…

    February 7, 2019

    WEEK 5 A very windy morning at Robin Wood meant that the children explored the outside of the woodland. We recapped on the fire circle game that we introduced last week and the children did a good job at remembering how to move around the fire circle safely. We discussed with the children how we could not have a fire this week and they helped to identify why. There was still lots to keep the children busy during the morning. Some wonderful obstacle courses were made by the children. They showed great team work, problem solving and creativity while also developing…
