BUTLINS - DAY 4
Everyone woke up in a not so good mood this morning! After 2.5 full on days tiredness has finally hit everyone! However, this didn’t stop us having the best morning go-karting, bowling and playing pool. In the afternoon some of us danced and some of us played football, we all then went swimming again, which was great fun! After finishing dinner the children glammed themselves up for the disco, the girls and a few of the boys had a great time. As usual bedtime was not an option! So off to the arcade and a Jess Glynne tribute where we continued dancing and having fun!
BUTLINS - DAY 3
Everyone woke up in a cheerful mood, ready for the day ahead. The weather was very dreary but this didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits! After breakfast we headed to “Discover animals” where children had the chance to look at creepy crawlies, touch a chamelion and hold a snake- which the children loved. The teachers made a very swift exit when the snake made an appearance! The sun made a very brief appearance while we played crazy golf and had fun in the games room. It was then time to eat AGAIN! No one has once said they are hungry this week, the food is plentiful and regular! To begin the afternoon we attended arts and crafts, we were unsure how this would go down with some children but they were engaged for the whole hour. They all made a lovely notebook to bring home. The main event for today was swimming, this was absolutely fantastic and the children had an amazing time. For obvious reasons there are no photographs of swimming, but we are going back tomorrow to ensure Mrs G & Mrs Phillips are unable to move on Friday!
We are currently sitting in the on-site cinema watching wreck it Ralph breaks the internet, we are hoping that this is the final activity for today, however, your children have had other ideas the past couple of nights! Watch this space! Overall another awesome day!
So, as expected, we weren’t allowed to chill this eve, the children had other plans! Half the group went to play football and the other half went to watch an Ed Sheeran tribute singer. They absolutely loved it, was great to see them all singing along and dancing. And so to bed 💤
BUTLINS - DAY 2
Everyone slept really well and were really well behaved. Glorious weather this morning, so after a huge breakfast we all went to the beach where the children had a fantastic time getting wet!!! And wild!! We have a full fun packed day planned and are now off to do archery, high ropes, zip line and climbing wall!
What a fantastic day, full on from start to finish. The majority of us went on the high ropes and zip line - Mrs G and Mrs Phillips included - who were totally terrified! Everyone had a go at archery, which was good fun. After yet another great meal we took part in jump rope, which was lots of different skipping games. The Butlins Learning Adventurers (people who organise the games) are really great and can’t do enough for us.
We had a couple of free hours after this so we all went to the fairground, we all had good fun on the rides. In the evening the children took part in sports day. We thought by now that the children would be shattered, but oh no! Just the adults were exhausted! So, off we went again either to play football with Mrs Phillips, walk to the beach with Mrs G & Mrs Busfield or stay with Miss Perry painting nails!
BUTLINS 2019 - DAY 1
After a very eventful begininning, we finally made it to Butlins! The kids had a great time bowling, as did Mrs Phillips! Everyone was very keen to see where they were staying, so after bowling we headed to our rooms before heading to dinner. Dinner was fantastic with a huge selection of hot food and desserts. We all left feeling very full ready for the evening activity ‘make a million’. Following this activity, we went to the arcade so the children could spend some of their money. We thought by now that everyone would be ready to collapse but everyone still had so much energy left we decided to go to the beach for a run around!! We then headed back to our rooms to chill out for an hour and hopefully sleep!! 🙄 The adults certainly will!
What a brilliant first day and can’t wait for the beach and Ariel adventures tomorrow!

Mental Health Week!
As part of the mental health week year 6 children have been going out each morning and being active for 10 minutes. Children have felt more energised and ready to start the day. The children in Year 6 have had some fantastic conversations about Mental health and how it can effect people.
Children have also made a display of a portrait of themselves filled with lots of different words that describe themselves.

Children In Need!
Year 6 had great fun raising money for Children in Need. The class raised £69- which was fantastic! The children showed some excellent dance moves in the Danceathon and especially loved dancing to Baby Shark!
What a great day! Well Done year 6!
Year 6 sports crew are working really hard to ensure Fruity Friday is working well. Each week we are making about £25- which is fantastic! The sports crew have been really enthusiastic about it and are eager to come in on a Friday to help set it up. They also pay a vital role in counting the money.
The whole school have created a Poppy display which you can see from Queensway.
Year 6 created their own individual poppy. They used water colours, mark marking and dot painting. Each one is different and personalised
End of Half Term Celebrations
As part of the year 6's Golden Learning they decided to start their enterprise projects. This project was based around Halloween. All children worked incredibly hard creating their stalls and games. Each group came up with a different game to engage all the other year groups.
They managed to raise £133 - which was amazing! We will be donating half of our profit to Billy's Wish and the other half will go towards the year 6 trip!
More photos will be added soon!
This term children have been learning about WW2. Through this topic we have been looking at rationing and children have had the oppertunity to make some of the recipes.
Children have made: Syrup loaf and Crunchies (oat cakes)
Children had the oppertunity to visit the Fire station in Hemel Hempstead. They learnt the:
- Recovery postion
- Being safe around a train track
- About cyber bullying
- Keeping safe at home
- Chilren were also touched by Billy's Wish foundation and have decided throughout the year to fundraise for this charity.
Children attended a cross country event where they competed against all the schools in Dacorum. Children ran 2km and all children that attended completed it. They were fantastic!!
