Story Museum Trip

4th Feb 2023

The children in Foundation Stage had a very exciting day on Thursday as they went to visit the Story Museum in Oxford. We left school around 10.30 and went to get on our bus. The children have been learning about where we live and comparing this to cities and so were excited to spot signs that we were approaching the city of Oxford!

Winter Birdwatching

24th Jan 2023

In KS1, we have been learning about birds in Forest School and Science! This ties in well to the RSPB Garden Birdwatch, which many of us have been keen to take part in this year. We have found that if we are very still and quiet in the Forest School area we can hear and see a range of birds including blackbirds and blue tits. We are getting better at identifying birds and have begun to identify their songs too! We also enjoyed setting up the wildlife camera, making birdfeeders, using binoculars and creating nests to use in our imaginative play.

Fun in the Snow!

15th Dec 2022

We have had lots of fun in the snow and ice over the last week! We set up different ice experiments in our tuff trays and even created some ice art to hang in the trees. We watched closely to spot the first signs of melting. In the snow, we built snowmen, made snow angels and had snowball fights. A chilly but fantastic last week before the holidays!!

International Week in FSU

24th Oct 2022

For International Week, Foundation Stage have been learning all about China. We learnt where China is and located it on a globe. We spent some time learning about pandas and how they are endangered. We then created our own art piece inspired by pandas. We learnt about the significance of the Chinese Dragon, the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Warriors. We even had a go at writing our names in Chinese. On Monday we had a visit from Dancing Sally and created a dance to traditional Chinese music which we really enjoyed. On Wednesday we took part in a Samba Drumming workshop which was a highlight of the week. We ended our week with our 'Food Tasting Friday' event which the whole school participates in - we loved trying lots of foods from around the world!

Forest School in FSU

24th Oct 2022

The children in Foundation Stage have started Forest School this term and have had a fantastic time! They have learnt the boundaries of our site, how to keep safe and how to look out for risks. We have gone pond dipping, climbed trees, built hammocks, caught minibeasts and taken part in woodland crafts. Our last session before the holidays was having a fire and the children enjoyed toasting a marshmallow on the fire. We can't wait to go back to Forest School next term!

Year 3 and 4 Corinium Museum Visit

6th Jul 2022

The Lower Key Stage 2 children had a wonderful trip to The Corinuim Museum in Cirencester last week. We enjoyed finding the various mosaics in each gallery and also spotted some artefacts that we had looked at in our lessons in school. Each class was able to take part in a workshop led by staff from the museum which involved dressing up as Ancient Romans, learning about the food they used to eat, playing Ancient Roman games and pretending to be in 'mosaic school' honing our mosaic laying skills! It was a really fun and informative day.

Wychwood Bake Off!

We were all very excited for the return of the Wychwood Bake Off! Round 1 had the theme of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee: children were invited to make a sponge which celebrated the event. What a fantastic range of entries we had. The whole school enjoyed going to see all the cakes and the school council were particularly excited as they got to taste them as part of the judging! A winner has been chosen from each class to go through to the next round.IMG 0768IMG 0767IMG 0766IMG 0765IMG 0764IMG 0763IMG 0762IMG 0761IMG 0760IMG 0759IMG 0758IMG 0757IMG 0756IMG 0755IMG 0754IMG 0753IMG 0752IMG 0751IMG 0750IMG 0749IMG 0748IMG 0747IMG 0746IMG 0745IMG 0744IMG 0743IMG 0742IMG 0741IMG 0740IMG 0739IMG 0738IMG 0737IMG 0736IMG 0735IMG 0734IMG 0733IMG 0732IMG 0731IMG 0730IMG 0729IMG 0728IMG 0727IMG 0726IMG 0725IMG 0724IMG 0723IMG 0722IMG 0721IMG 0720IMG 0719IMG 0718IMG 0717IMG 0716IMG 0715IMG 0714IMG 0713IMG 0712IMG 0711IMG 0710IMG 0709IMG 0708IMG 0707IMG 0706IMG 0705IMG 0704IMG 0703IMG 0702IMG 0701IMG 0700IMG 0699IMG 0698IMG 0697IMG 0696IMG 0695IMG 0694IMG 0693
