On Monday 11 February, we were lucky to have Jim Gump visit our school. Jim is an inspiration to everyone; showing exactly what perserverance can enable you to achieve. Jim’s running isn’t without purpose; alongside running nearly 14,000 miles (10,000 in the UK and 4,000 in the US), covering an average of 22 miles per day! He is raising awareness of obesity among children and inspiring kids worldwide, to live a healthier, more active life.
Fire Service Visit
On Thursday 6th December; our local fire service from Maiden Newton, came in and discussed fire safety with Ravens' Class. We were also lucky to see and learn about the equipment on the fire engine itself; while practising our hosing skills; mainly on Mrs Hart's car!
Able Writers' Day
On Wednesday 17th October, a selection of children from Ravens' class took part in an Able Writer's Day at Powerstock School. During the day, the children learned all about different types of poetry, such as riddles; as well as legends based on places within Dorset; from the famous poet, Martin Maudsley.
On 25th September we did something slightly different in PE; we got really creative. Feeling the beat of the music, we used ribbons and pom poms to create our own routines; we all had lots of fun!
'Is this a dagger I see before me?'
Ravens' class have been studying Macbeth; through hot-seating activities they were able to grasp an understanding of the characters and the kind of people they were and what each was capable of.

To start off this amazing History unit; we were lucky to have the Viking re-enactment group, Hrafnslith join us for the day on Wednesday 5 September 2018. See below, what the children learned and just some of the excitement they had.
