Rock UK 2016

Children in Junior 2 spent a fantastic week at the Frontier Centre in Northamptonshire. Activities included Canoeing, fencing, climbing, archery and raft building.

Raft Building involved the children in discussing the design of the raft using models before working as a team to build their raft.

In open canoeing the children received their first instruction in using a paddle.

New ‘Jungle Climber’ for juniors


The great news this term is that we  finally have our new play equipment installed. We will have a formal opening ceremony when we thank FOGS and all who have helped to raise funds over the last three years. The play equipment and safe surface were very expensive and it looked as if it may never happen, but extra funding from the diocese has enabled the children’s hopes to be fulfilled.

Jumbo Jungle Climber

We have also  replaced our very tired playground markings. More improvements to the look of our outdoor area are planned for the half term break.
