On Monday Years 3 and 4 headed to the Malvern Hills to explore British Camp. Following a breezy ascent to the summit of British Camp, they all completed an activity book, prepared by Miss Tolladay, which involved them having to use their geographical and historical enquiry skills to locate their answers. During the morning the children had the opportunity to explore the valleys and vantage points as well as identify remnants from the Iron Age through the stone walls and the way in which the hills have been carved.
The children all thoroughly enjoyed exploring British Camp and found it a super way to enhance their learning about Iron Age hill forts.
To enrich their current topic, Reception class visited the All Things Wild centre in Honeybourne, Worcestershire to take part in a ‘Dinosaur Exploration’ experience. They really enjoyed this trip and saw lots of different animals and dinosaurs and learnt about fossils.
As part of this term’s theme ‘Respect’, School Council are prompting the values of respecting the environment. They have arranged for our school to be a hub for the ‘Big Battery Hunt’ with a large battery shaped recycling box recently having been placed in the school’s reception lobby.
Children in our school have also taken home a Big Battery Hunt recycling box which can be used to safely store used batteries. These boxes can then be brought into school and then placed in our secure battery recycling container.
We hope to have the Big Battery Hunt container filled with used batteries by the Summer Term.
