Traffic Survey

On Thursday we went out to the front of the school to do a traffic survey as part of our geography project, finding out about our local area and how we would like it to be improved; our work will be contributing to the Neighbourhood Development Plan. 

Each group went out for ten minutes. In total we counted 167 cars, 49 vans, 9 lorries, 1 motorbike, 1 bicycle and 2 tractors.  We decided that the road outside our school is very busy. We will be thinking about the impact of this on the village, on our daily lives, and what changes we would like to see. 

Nightingale Explorers

The Nightingales had fun searching the site for animal footprints and ticking them off their sheet; it was a great activity to get them moving, keeping warm and looking around at changes that had taken place since December.  

The children loved making bark owls and bird feeders that we have put up around the site to mark the RSPB Bird watch; we will enjoy checking them and using our senses to help listen and look for birds over the coming weeks.

The apple-peeler-corer-slicing machine was a hit with the children, and they went on to prepare a delicious apple crumble that we cooked in the Dutch Oven over the fire; mmmmmm!!!

A muddy walk around the village  

Today we went for a walk around the village as part of our research for the Neighbourhood Development Plan, which we will be working on for the rest of this term. We were thinking about what we liked about the village and what we thought could be improved. We will present our findings with the rest of the school after half term. 

Sorry about the mud, unfortunately it is part of living in the country side, as we discovered. 

Savoury biscuit owls 

Nightingales have been sharing the stories of Percy the Park Keeper in literacy, thinking about the different characters and animals. On Friday we made savoury owl biscuits. Our focus was on following instructions; children had to spread their biscuit with cheese spread then listen to instructions to place carrots, cucumber, slices of apple and grape to form their animal, could they recognise what they were? 

Music fun!
