Miss Sykes has been in touch and would like to say thank you for all the lovely comments we’ve received this week. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and have made memories that will last a lifetime!
Please enjoy the pictures below, we’re all getting ready for hide and seek in the dark! See you all tomorrow.
We’re still having a fabulous time here, participating in so many exciting activities including climbing walls, high ropes, tree climbing, archery, catapult building, shelter building, woodland walks and many more.
Thanks to everyone for your messages, missing you all but having loads of fun.
Check out the latest pics from Frank Chapman below. Unfortunately, the internet connection isn’t the best hence the delay in posts. We’ll try our best to keep the pictures coming throughout the week. We’re currently on our night walk and have just found the magical wishing tree!

This half term we have been looking at buildings in our art work. We have been using paint to show how they look in moonlight with light on one side and shadow on the other. We used warm colours on the light side and cool colours on the dark side. We hope you like the effect. We loved painting, but some of us got more on our hands than on the paper We have put them on display in the corridor in the lower building so that everyone can see them on their way to lunch.
We held our first ever Harry Potter evening, celebrating Harry Potter book night on Wednesday 10th February! We did lots of crafts linked to the books including: making house ties, making magic wands, creating an owl to carry our Hogwarts acceptance letters and making our own Golden Snitch!
We all split into different houses using our very own sorting hat! We then moved around completing each of our magical activities. We even tried Bertie Bott’s every flavour Jelly Beans- luckily ours weren’t earwax flavour!! We were able to watch clips from the film as we moved around the different classrooms and some of us even made up our own spells to cast with our magic wands!
The staff were very impressed with the behaviour and enthusiasm shown by all pupils! The children got a certificate to recognise that they took part in a national event which saw 10,500 celebrations last year. This year we are able to say that we are a part of that number!
There are lots of Harry Potter books for the children to read in Phase 3’s library if the evening has inspired anyone to start reading the series.
Well done year 5 and Happy Wizarding!
