RAF Brize Norton
An amazing day at the airbase. Children explored a C17, were shown around the airport terminal, had demonstrations of how the paras practise and went in the Hercules simulator.
Thank you to Suzi and Ceri for organising. Well done to Miss Hill and Mrs Edmunds for braving the parachute hoists and especially Mrs Conner who jumped from the practice platform!
We started our session this week with a hunt for pictures of minibeasts that had been hidden around the site; it's a great way for the children to look around at the site changes and an opportunity to work together. Afterwards, the children were inspired to search for real bugs in their habitats and we had plenty of worms and woodlice being brought to us! Some children also chose to make insect fossils in clay as well as spiders.
It has been lovely to see how this group's confidence has grown over the weeks. They are working really nicely together to make dens and fires - and showing real resilience.

09/11/18 Congratulations Emily, Hailey, Daniel C, Summer and Elliot, 10/10 in your spelling test this week!
This week we have been thinking about how Diwali is celebrated. We have shared the story of Rama and Sita, with Year 1 children writing their own version of the story, applying what they have been learning about writing in the past tense (using 'Uncle Ed'). Foundation children have been working with Mrs Burroughs, (our TA swap from Bampton Primary) to make traditional Indian sweets. We all enjoyed tasting them at snack time on Friday.
