  2. Tricker’s Boots and Shoes

    November 15, 2017 by misstimmins

    Today we had a visit from two of the workers from Tricker’s shoe factory in Northampton.

    They came into school this morning to talk to the children about how shoes are made. The children got the chance to look closely at some of the materials they use, hold some hand made shoes and boots, look at some of the tools used in the factory and ask Scott and Adele lots of questions about their job.

    Can you remember what materials they use in their factory to make shoes and boots?

    What is Remembrance Day?

    Today we talked about Remembrance day and why we wear poppies around this time of the year.

    The children enjoyed sharing stories and were intrigued to find out who was King or Queen during the first world war.

    After our class discussions all of the children used power paint to make their own poppy.

  5. Playground Astronauts

    November 8, 2017 by misstimmins

    Today we became playground astronauts.

    The children worked in pairs to write a set of instructions to take their spaceship from ‘Earth’ to the ‘Moon’.


    The children took it in turns to act out the role of the spaceship. Once the children had planned their set of instructions they ‘programmed’ their spaceship to ensure they got to the Moon.

    Can you remember your sequence of instructions?

  10. Harvest Experience

    October 11, 2017 by misstimmins

    Today we walked to Abington Park Church for our Harvest Experience.

    When we arrived we were put into four groups and took part in a range of different harvest experiences around the church. As the children made their way around the church they collected a range of words.




    The children planted a seed, made a small clay pot and a paper boat linked to the different experiences around the church.

    The children were amazing and a represented the school fanatically. You should all be very proud.

    A big thank you to all of the helpers this afternoon and for the church for arranging the experience for our children.
