  • Thursday 16 November 2023 Author Visit This morning the children in Alder Class were treated to a talk from Howard Watkin-Jones, a local author. He spoke about his recently published book: The Legend of the Green Wolf Rider. The children learned about his inspiration for the book, about his writing process as well as the enchanting illustrations with hidden faces! The children asked some insightful questions and many of them are now desperate to read the book.

  • Friday 20 October 2023 The Visible Spectrum of Light This term, in science, Alder class are learning all about light. They know that light travels in straight lines and how we use light to see objects. This week we explored the different colours that make up light and discovered that it is made up of many colours - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet - the rainbow! We created our own "prisms" with bubbles! By shining a torch through our bubbles, the light refracted and the different colours seemingly split as each colour has a different wavelength.
  • Wednesday 4 October 2023 Alder Residential - Culmington Manor On Monday 25th September, Alder Class set off to Manor Adventure in Shropshire for their 4-night residential. During the week the children took part in a variety of activities from climbing to canoeing and archery to zip-lining. All the children represented our school brilliantly and we are incredibly proud of the determination and perseverance they demonstrated during the challenges they faced - well done Alder Class!
