Break Out Days

Our popular Break Out Days are a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn new skills and take part in other activities in and outside of school; these can include nature walks, cooking, crafts, sport competitions and much more! They are an important part of our curriculum and help to enrich learning further.

We had:

  • Write your own song masterclass
  • Be a caretaker for the morning
  • Build a Bug Hotel challenge
  • Arts and crafts - treasure island challenge

Everyone had so much fun, and got to mix with a variety of other children across the school.  It was a great display of creativity, teamwork, resilience and enthusiasm.  What a super morning!

A selection of highlights from Break Out morning



STEM Break Out

 On Friday 31st March we had a rally great STEM themed Break Out day. In the morning they had visitors in representing various fields of STEM.  These included a radiologist, a bridge engineer, an expert on renewable energy and a doctor. 

In the afternoon the children got to showcase what they had been working on all week with a very exciting STEM Roadshow in the hall to parents and carers.  This also included out highly anticipated Bridge Building design competition (well done to Cameron in Year 5 who won best Bridge award!).  The Year 2's showcased some snazzy Science experiments, and the Year 4s took everyone's fingerprints as part of our 'Who Ate The Doughnut?' detective mystery.  Well done to everyone!


'Donate A Morning' Break Out October 2022

We had a brilliant morning with experts from various local groups and charities being welcomed into the school.

The idea of this morning was for the children and adults in our school to donate time to our local community.

Thank you to everyone involved, to families who donated items, volunteers who helped, staff who were so enthusiastic, but most importantly, to our amazing children who worked incredibly hard during Donate a Morning for the greater good.

We have spoken to the children about being 'agents of change for the community' and they certainly lived up to it, making us all very proud.

I hope you and your child felt that the time spent on building their personal development was worthwhile for them as citizens. We certainly did.

Please see below for some of the highlights of that day:
