DDAT Celebrations at the Crooked Spire

Wow! What an enjoyable time we had at the DDAT celebration. Year 3/4 had practised their songs for the last few weeks and we joined in with great gusto at the Crooked Spire. There was also a wonderful performance retelling the story of 'The Three Trees' and what they wanted to be when they grew up. We also brought along our hopes and dreams to add to the collection. All of us had great fun and Mr Cullington was very proud of us all. An excellent day! Watch the video to hear one of our favourites!

Therefore, it is even more important to ensure that they know what to do if they come across a situation that they've never been in before. We looked at different scenarios and

Exploring Chatsworth

On Tuesday, our Class 2 and EYFS children visited Chatsworth as part of our Scented Garden topic. We were very glad of a sunny start to the day as we were going to be spending the whole day outside. We arrived and walked to the Stickyard where our ‘Chatsworth Explorers’ workshop started. First we learnt how to use a compass and we all practised being the parts of a compass before using real compasses to find different directions. We have been learning about Joseph Paxton who was the head gardener at Chatsworth from 1826 and was in charge of finding exotic and rare plants for the gardens so we followed in his footsteps and pretended that we were explorers searching for a large green leaf.
