On Wednesday Year Five and Six went to RHS Wisley. This is one of the Royal Horticultural Society's main gardens.
After a slightly blowy start, the weather behaved as beautifully as the children for our annual sports day. As ever, the children demonstrated great determination, teamwork and support for each other. It was a day for enjoying being with friends and celebrating each other’s successes and great team work.
Years One and Two started the week with a sun-filled visit to the Chiltern Open Air Museum.
Year Two are looking at different aspects of African life in Geography this term.
The book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ has been a huge hit with Year Two. In the original story, the crayons go on strike because of the complaints about how their owner treats them! This sometimes irreverent look at how we care for our belongings has certainly inspired the children, who have produced character profiles and letters from the unthinking little boy, Duncan, to his crayons.
Years Three and Four have been to Hampton Court Palace this week to discover how the Tudors lived.
Lower School had a very important visitor this week. The well-known children’s author, Lottie Prentice, travelled over 100 miles just to visit our children!
This week saw schools across the UK (and other organisations) highlighting the need to stay safe on the internet. Teaching internet safety is a core part of Crown House’s approach to Computing and something which is reviewed with the children throughout the year.
Crown House Explore the World of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths
Year One and Two visit the Walter Rothschild Museum at Tring.
Preschool and Reception enjoyed a wonderful day at a very special Ball.
Year Two have been learning about different quests and mythical tales which have often been passed down orally. They have been excitedly writing their own story of George and the Dragon, creating a super group display of their work in their classroom
Year Six joined Preschool this week to share some of their favourite books. Great fun was had by all as the older children reminisced over books they enjoyed in their earliest days at school.
This Wednesday saw our Year Five and Six footballers travel to Dair House for an away fixture. The team arrived in fine voice after a loud but tuneful journey to the venue.
